Yes and maybe.
If you open unit, usually fan motor is plugged in, and motor is removable with bolts.
The problem is finding new fan that fits same housing without spot-welding and drilling.
I did google image search for "replacement vent fan motors" and results show choices.
For example Nutone:
http://nutoneproducts.typepad.com/nutone-products/nutone-bath-fans/page/2/
If you can locate same brand vent at local box store, you can use parts from new one to repair old one without project of replacing fan housing.

20 years ago, motors went to electric repair shop and they rewound the motor.
But today, motors are landfilled or shipped overseas for recycling.
All costs are energy, and right now, cost of re-wind is more than buying new motor, or new vent.

I have an older amana central ac/heating unit, fan not turning outside, did pencil test, turns slowly then stops. changed capacitor a month or so ago all was fine. started making a humming noise so ran and...


Sounds like the fan motor has reached its endpoint. It will have to be removed and replaced. Find the dircuit breaker in your electric panel that supplies power to the air conditioner unit. When you have found the right one, even the humming sounds will be absent. The fan usually is at the top of the unit. You must have opened this to change the capacitor. Remove the fan band motor as a unit and take it to a store like Grangers and determine if they have a motor that would replace the one from your unit. If the motor has a model number on it, you may find a replacement available onlilne by Googling that number and the name Amana. Put electricians tape over the wires that led to the motor, just in case someone turns on the circuit breaker before you have completed the job

IQAir HealthPro Plus; need a replacement fan; anyone sells these other than shipping this back to IQAir


There is no listing for the fan IQ Air uses in its units, but you could pull the fan unit from the case and match it to one of the many fan motors at this site:www.emotorstore.com/

Yes, if you changed the three post capacitor that runs the fan and compressor, and the fan is still getting hot and shutting down until it cools off, you may have bushings out of the motor or an internal short. Sounds like you have a job ahead of you of changing your condenser motor. If you do this yourself just contact me I will step you through it . Mark

Kenmore Humidifier 14114 - the fan suddenly stopped running. Changed fliter and water, unplugged the unit, changed dial to highest humidity level - the unit will not run.


Hi

Please turn off the power to the unit and unplug it. Now check the fuse inside the unit, make sure its fine and not burnt If fuse seems OK then inspect the connections to the fan and make sure the wires are not cut. Also, inspect the control for any burnt components, use a multimeter to confirm. Hope this helps... Please post back with complete model# if you need more information.

Replace motor in Broan 678 bathroom fan


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.

Unit overheated due to fan malfunction.


Again EA or EC error codes? To unplug the fan you really have small hands. Fan is a unit not just motor, explosion proof and costs over $330.
If that was a popping or staccato noise it wasn't the fan but the gas valve. Sounds like water penetration which condemns the gas valve a $237 part which FYI DIY you can't replace unless you're a Tech.
What's with your warranty?
The pilot in an electronic Bosch doesn't exist, it's lite by a spark . igniter.
This is a Gas Appliance which requires a RSA to service.
If water penetration then change your termination box to drop dead by Z-Vent. We change dozens of these (GV's) a year due to this crappy box. These units work best when Direct Vented.

Problem with fan


just replace the fan motor is the proper fix. you may dissasemble the fan motor and it may run for a while but the cost of a compressor is not worth the cost of the fan motor
