Southern Fan Company - Southern Fan Co. Ceiling Fans
Southern Fan Co made a ceiling fan in the 1980s called the "Tara". These fans had a quality motor and moved a lot of air however they were riddled with problems.
The downrod mounted to the motor with a plastic bracket that could become cracked or stripped. A few fans have been known to fall. There is no direct replacement. See Tara Safety Issues (http://www.geocities.com/mt_spiffy/safety2.html).
Southern Fan used rubber flywheels that were very prone to breaking. Replacements are available although they do not fit like the originals (see Tara Flywheels http://www.geocities.com/mt_spiffy/safety.html).
As with all older fans, with age and use the bearings may become dry or dirty and require oiling or replacement, see "oiling" section.
