Question about Ventamatic Fans
After running for a period of time the fan will start to squeal rather loudly and eventually shut down. Access to the fan is difficult but I have used an oil based spray to lubricate the shaft and the squeaking will stop for a period of time, but will begin again after a few day's. Do I need to replace the motor or entire unit. Any suggestions on greasing/oiling the unit for a more permanent solution?
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.

common motor. get from butler ventamatic or Johnstone Supply if you have an account. Hint, buy a whole new fan for $60; cheaper then buying piece by piece, then you get a new blade,motor and tstat for a little more then motor alone costs.
