Need to replace switch but can't find replacement

I have a NuTone WHV20 fan and the switch to turn it on no longer works. The switch itself says "Model CFVS-1 120V 60Hz 10A"
I can't find anyone with a replacement switch, can anyone please tell me what other switch I can use as a replacement. I am not electrical but really would like my fan to work
Thank yo so much!

    Same thing here, switch clicks but fan stays on.  No luck yet finding a dimmer-type switch with the same amp limit as the CFVS-1.

    I too have the same problem. I looked for the switch at electricsuppliesonline, as suggested. Although I found the switch, it says "discontinued by manufacturer" and provides no way to put it in a cart...apparently they're sold out (I assume forever).

I need a replacement motor for a NuTone Model LS-80SE exhaust fan but can't find one.

Home depot usually has a good selection of replacement fans. They usually are a fan on a mounting plate, not just the fan motor itself. Sometimes you have to purchase the entire fan unit just to get the fan motor plate inside for a replacement part.

Sounds like the load is shorted. You don't say what the switch is controlling. What happens if you jump out the switch and just connect the load, then turn on the breaker? If the breaker trips, it's the load itself that's shorted.

contact nutone. the problem is that the sensor that shuts off the unit to prevent overheating is too sensitive or faulty. nutone website seems geared towards selling their product so you may have to call them direct at 1-888-336-6157. this is customer support. good luck.6-6157

The fan blade can be removed from the shaft. You just need to pop the lock washer off and pry the fan blade. You most likely will not be able to remove the fan blade without damaging the blade. You can buy the replacement fan blades online. The part number is 5901A000. Here is a blog on the entire replacement motor assembly.

Nutone ls80l motor stopped working

If you remove the motor, which usually isn't to difficult to do. I would recommend plugging it in to one of your electrical outlets to check it. There is a possibility that the wiring is messed up or the plug in the housing went bad. If the motor doesn't work you need a new motor if it does work then you could try replacing the plug in the housing. All these parts are still available.
Here is a motor finder for NuTone motors:
Here is the manufacturer you can get parts from them:
