You can buy the entire motor assembly for these fans. You do not need to remove the housing. All you need to do is remove the grill, take out the guts and install the new motor assembly. It will take about 10 minutes. Here is a nutone fan motor finder.

SOURCE: where can I get the motor unit to replace?

The motor is a common item to need replacement in bathroom vents. Replacements can be found just about anywhere that deals with electric motors. You might even be able to get a replacement where you originally purchased the unit. There are dozens of web sites that you can locate a replacement. http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com is just one. Simply do a web search on replacement bathroom vent motors. Also if the are able to purchase items from wholesale vendors you can get one from Grainger's. It should cost around $20 to $25
Part # 62345-000 (replacement motor part #).


However there is an alternative to replacement. This depends entirely on how handy you are with these kinds of things and how bad off the motor is. If your not comfortable with repairing this kind of thing don't bother with the rest of this.

I hate to replace anything that may be repairable. Unfortunately my friends know this and recently one asked me to look at his NuTone bathroom vent motor before he replaced it.
For the cost in time of an hour I was able to refurbished it.
A good way to check if it's a candidate for repair is to check how much play is in between the shaft and bushings. If you can feel movement then it's best to go ahead and replace it. If the problem is that the shaft is tight and just hard to turn then it may just need some cleaning and fresh lubrication.
The steps are simple. Once you have the motor removed from the vent cage you will see a pair of nuts and bolts holding two brackets in place. These brackets(one on either side of the coil) are what hold the shaft centered and house the bushings. Remove the bolts and the brackets. Be careful not to lose any of the washers on the shaft. These are spacers and need to be replace the same way they went on if they come off. All you need to do is clean both ends of the shaft put a little oil on the shaft and in the bushing and put it back together. If the motor has a plug and not just bare wires for reconnecting to the power supply then it's safe to just plug it in to any outlet for testing after you remount it in the vent cage. You will know right away if you were successful.


Hope this helps.

Turn fan on and extremly noisy. I have replace the motor using the same fan blades, but noise still exist. Any suggestion to the problem?


You are in position to visualise the fault as the blades are turned so that the nosie is seen . It can be from rubbing of the fan leaf, slipping of the blades from the shaft, or a possible vibration.
remove the power and turn manually to hear the noise to correct.

New Broan fan rattles


I would take it back for exchange...
($159... is high end pricy... Amazon = $168 (worse)).

Old ... tired fans can dry out... gather dust.

Their life can be significantly extended with
fresh lube... As for me...
I've learned to just find & buy a NEW MOTOR.

But a new FAN... Outrageous!

Take it back
... Broan-NuTone Nutone Is a QUALITY
FAN... Expect quality.

Noisy fan


We had our house built with the same Nutone fan/light units in all 4 bathrooms. Moved in in 2002. One of the units starting making a loud noise last month. I popped the plasic cover off the light, then carefully pulled out the bulb, then unscrewed the wingnut in the middle. That allowed removal of the light assembly. Then I had access to the blade and motor. I found a lot of dust had collected on the motor and blade. I blew most of it off with compressed air (like what you would use on a computer), then used an electronic cleaner on the motor, then wiped off the blade and motor with a clean cloth.

I then crossed my fingers and turned on the fan.... It worked! It was quiet again. I waited a week before posting this. The fan is used every day. It is still quiet today.

If it ever needs replacing, I saw that Nutone sells the motor alone for about $22, that's a lot better than replacing the whole unit for around $70.
