Model 854 1946?

I think my kitchen fan is original to my 1946 house. It quit working recently when the roofers dropped old shingles on the fan blades! What are my chances of finding a modern ventilation unit that will fit in the space of the old fan?

Pretty good, take that one out along with the attachment bracket and take it to your local hardware store. all that has to match up is the bracket onto the new one as well as the blades and motor not being an bigger than yours, then you'll know it will fit in the ventilation shaft. the electric plug should be the same 2 prong cable.

SOURCE: Can I purchase a replacement kitchen exhaust fan

Probably. I had a similar construction situation. I went to a Electric supply house and the counter man pulled something off the shelf that worked right into the project.

Give it a try ... but dont expect this result from a big box store -

How do I re-roof my house easily

If you mean re shingling, here in USA there are usually building codes to be complied with, such as: If there is just one layer of shingles on the building, you can add a second layer, but if there are two layers of shingles they both must be removed, and new tar paper installed before a layer of shingles are placed. Also with all shingles removed is a time to inspect and replace all rotten wood of roof, before repapering and reshingling. If you've never seen of watched the process by done by professionals, I'd recommend getting bids from three roofers, and pay the best price to do it. Get a full written contract before they start, because there could be significant damages if there are leaks after the job is done.
Maybe watch some youtube videos of roof reshingling. there are many special tool techniques to do the job right, (And not fall off the roof either)

GH7208XRS Whirlpool sounds like screw in housing how to get it out

Drop a magnet tied to a piece of string down the same spot where you believe the roofers may have dropped the screw. This should pick it up for you.

Vornado fan Model CR1-0023 , Type 750 I bought this fan used 3 days ago. Seemed to work fine but not as powerfully as another new Vornado shop fan I have. Today the fan blades stopped turning. I can...

I have had the same model for almost ten years, and have had to lubricate it twice - both times when the fan stopped rotating. It's obvious that Vornado never intended the bearings to be serviced, but if you're patient, it can be done. You must remove the front louver section (press the three clips inward gently). Then firmly pull the fan toward the front, off the shaft. Then remove the four nuts on the front of the motor housing - you'll note that the bolts appear to be free-floating, but that allows re-assembly after the bearings are lubricated. When the nuts are removed, firmly pull the front of the motor housing toward you. This may require a firm pull or GENTLE prying, as the rear bearing sometimes doesn't want to let go. When you have the front portion of the housing and shaft out, hold the housing and pull the shaft out of the front bearing. Again, this may require a steady firm pull straight back. When the rotor & shaft are free, you'll need some very fine emery paper to remove the varnish that's built up on the shaft (it's unmistakable where to clean the shaft.) And I never attempt to do anything with the front and rear bearing themselves - too much work, and cleaning the shaft does the job for me. Then clean everything up carefully and lubricate the shaft where it enters the bearings (and maybe a drop in the rear bearing itself.) I use a very fine machine oil that I bought at Sears, but I think any good oil would work. Then, it's re-assembly time - shaft into front bearing, shaft into rear bearing as the motor housing is put back together (lining up the bolts), four nuts on the bolts & tighten (firmly, no gorilla), press fan back on shaft (don't force it too far on - it'll stop when it's in the right place), plug in and check, re-attach front louver (just press - the clips will snap easily into place.)

Wet ceilings

You must conact your roofer and complain... COMPLAIN.. it sounds like you have a leak and the installers have allowed moistere to get under the roofing materials...!!!

Basically water expands when it freezes (ice cube tray.. over filled ) so if there's any kind of leak the water penetrates.. feezes allowing it to migrate up under the materials and then as the warm air from inside the attic causes the ice to then melt. I'd call and find out what the deal is.. especially if this has been going on SINCE the new roof was installed....

good luck

Noisy whirlpool condensor fan motor

These motors with the plastic fan are apparently failing so often that when I went to the parts store, the owner told me on guy bought 4 replacement motors for his condo complex. Buy the old version of the motor with a metal fan blade. You have to clip off the white connector on the wiring harness and then wire to the new motor using wire nuts (easy). It's a lot cheaper too - $49 for the motor and blade vs alost $100 for the crappy plastic one. Running llike a champ right now!
