Can this fan motor replace my old one?

Hi Everyone,

So here is the deal, I have a 2014 oscillating tower fan that I really like and the company who makes the fan won't sell me an extra fan motor. I contacted some manufacturers in China and one was able to get very similar specs to the old one but it's still not spot on.

I wanted to know will this new motor be able to replace the old motor? Here are the specs of the old motor:

Type: PLD58-20
Voltage: 120V
Insulate Grade: E
Input Power: 25W
Frequency: 60Hz
Speed: 2200r/min

Here are the specs of the new motors:

Can anyone tell me which motor on the list would be able to replace my old one?

Thank You

The new motor specs say 120/220 yet only two wires shown in picture.
They list motor current but don't say if that's for 120 or 220.
This looks to be a single speed motor...... isn't your tower multi speed ?

HI PJ,

I think they mean you can order the motor as 120 or 220 because they offer both this also applies for the current as well (but I will ask them to verify).

Here a picture of the fan: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....1Ua4quGm4L.jpg
The fan has 3 motors that all spin in unison.

I think the way it works is the fan controller controls how much power is going to the fan motor thus controlling the speed of the fan motor. The OEM fan motor looks exactly like the picture of the motor above.

The current consumption of your motor is close to .20A
That would put it closest to the third motor but the speed is faster.

I'd just buy a second tower fan rather than a spare fan motor.
