    electronic
    I cant find the technical information online
    Howstuffworks.com only gives the information that the fan motor is electrical

    Could it just be spring loaded?
    You wind up a spring by pulling the power cable out and then release it and it winds back in.

    Wouldn't it have to be a spring? It happens when the power cable is unplugged. So how would you power a motor?

    It must have a battery in it because it has a quarter turn rotary on switch.
