Question about Ventamatic Gable Mount Power Attic Ventilator Fan
Hello,I need to replace a motor for a Ventamatic attic fan. I called Ventamatic and was told the attic fan replacement motor is part #XE401. However, someone on this website suggested replacing the entire fan for a few bucks more, as the replacement part is almost as expensive as a new fan. He said you may as well get new blades, thermostat, etc., instead of just the motor (for the cost). Question 1: What do you recommend? The attic fan is at least 11 years old. Question 2: To replace an attic fan, do I need to go through the roof from the outside, or can this be done from in the attic? Is this something I can do (I'm not a fix-it-up kind of guy), or should I hire an electician or contractor to replace the fan? Thanks in advance!Ken W.
I am assuming you replaced your fan by now. However in the future call Gibraltar Industries, they are the ones who manufacture all fans and motors. My attic motor fan also died and I first called Ventamatic and they wanted $65 for a new motor. I then called Gibraltar and they shipped one our for free. 800-527-1924.

In many cases the fan motor assembly comes with the thermostat control. Check this out before deciding.
