Hunter Production Notes

The Original 22046 from late 60s to 1972 had a trumpet canopy, all cast iron with smooth castings, was a 3-speed fan with a speed coil.  It had a 1.9 amp motor, the vent holes we're all big holes, the canopy was cast iron and had what looks like a ball shape on the bottom.

From 1972 to 1975 when the 22206 fan was made, the plastic switch housing changed to a two part  housing with a brass top piece and a cast iron balloon-shaped bottom piece. The fans had an Adapt Air blade mechanical reversal mechanism. A wing knob on the side of the blade holder reversed all blades at the same time.

From 1975 to 1984 Hunter fans became more residential oriented.  A new 2.5 amp motor was used which had faster starting. The switch housing was plastic, but then change to pot metal. A stamped bottom plate replaced the cast plate. A blade isolation ring was added to reduce sound. The Adapt Air reversible blades were changed to one-at-a-time blade reversal.

In 1984, the 42-inch fan had the stator coils inside the rotor, so there's lots of space between the rotor and the wall of the casting. It was designed and made in Taiwan.

In 1985 the motor was changed to a PSC design, 2.0 amp motor
