First turn the power to the fan OFF. Take it down from the ceiling by removing the screws holding the cover on. Then remove the screws holding it to the ceiling. Then unscrew the screw caps that twist (connect) the wires from fan motor to the house wiring. Do a general clean up on the fan. Use an old paint brush to get in the hard to get at places. Rotate the fan by hand. If it does not rotate freely, put some oil on the shaft where it goes into the motor, and put some on where the shaft comes out the back. If it still does not rotate freely, buy a replacement and install it.

SOURCE: QT 100L replacement
Forget it. I also had the same problem with the QT100L. Cannot buy this unit and the replacement unit is the LS100L by Nutone/Broan. Good news: it is more powerful 110CFM and the housing is the same size. Bad news, the motor assy is completely different and it cannot be mounted in the existing housing. To install the new unit, you will need to cut the ceiling around the fan housing and install the new housing and wire it as well. Be aware that the wiring comes into the housing 180 degrees from the old QT100L unit. That means I hope you have enough romex to reach the hole. My advice is to get another unit from any other company because the quality sucks. It will be as much work to install any other brand as the LS100L.

I ran into the same problem, Lowe's carries Broan exhaust vents. They had both a replacement motor for all generations of 678 fans for $18, and they also had the latest generation of the complete unit for $40. I bought the complete unit, which included the fan I needed. Just unbolted it from the new bracket and bolted it to the old one. The new light housing, trim piece, and lens also interchanged. The existing one was old and yellowed, so this made for a huge improvement. All done from in the living space as well.

The grille is held in place by the reflector. The reflector is hidden by the the lens. The first step is to remove the lens, then you will remove the light bulb. You will see one wing nut above the light socket. If you unscrew that the reflector and the grille should come down. The replacement motor assembly for the 763 RLN is the S0503B000, if you are looking for a little more power you could also purchase the S0504B000
