***Don't toss out your old fan - you will need some of the parts****
Waited years until my old fan motors from 1974 finally burned out but like most junk this old from a manufactured home everything is hard to find and replace. But not this fan. Smaller and better than the original. Reasonably quiet too. The fan blades that it came with didn't make any sense. They weren't slanted so they didn't create an updraft. I'm not quite a senior citizen (44) but I still had to do some mild adjustments to this fan. Glad I didn't throw out my old fan since it didn't come with a bracket. I just used the old fan's. I used the old fans metal blade but it sounded like it was too heavy and over-working the motor. So I put the new one back on but had to bend the blades by putting a weight on them for a day in the hot sun. It actually worked. Great replacement I'm pleased. Now all I need is a cover to fit over the ugly hole in the ceiling where the fan is.

This replacement motor and fan fit perfectly. Of course, when I had my bathroom renovated the old one was the only thing I didn't replace since it was still working. Since I'm not at all mechanically inclined and a 68 yr old woman, I was afraid I would have to call someone to install it. Instead I went to Youtube and followed their directions. I'm not saying it was easy for me, especially working over my head, but I finally figured it out. I'm very pleased with it, works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB Save Time and. Money - Just Replace the Motor
Generally when the bathroom fan quits after many years, it just needs a new motor. You don't need to spend 3 times the money replacing the whole fan and light. Also, it can be tough finding one to fit the pre-existing opening in the ceiling. When you take it down, you'll find the model # that needs to be ordered. The motor has a plug on it so an electrician isn't needed to wire it in.
I ordered it delivered to my local Home Depot, an easy process. It arrived within 3 days. The new motor is much quieter and cost less than $20.

As a homeowner this was my first need to replace a bathroom fan. I was doubtful that I was able to reach the fan from the attic and was figuring I would need to cut out a large section of the vaulted ceiling to replaced the fan.
I searched the Homedepot web site to see if HD has the same model. Then I saw the replace motor, which is accessed with removing the fan cover and simply unplugging the motor unit. The new replacement motor made the job super easy and save a ton of time vs. replacing the whole unit.
The new replacement motor is quite and I am very pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaintingPat1 Saved our Ceiling
When our 34 year old bathroom fan died, we investigated buying a new one. We learned we would have to cut open our ceiling in order to install a new one, so we went without one for several months. Then I found this motor on the Home Depot website. It looked like our old motor, which plugs into an outlet in the box which houses the old ceiling fan. It was also very inexpensive, so I decided to try it. It was very easy to drop the old motor out, and secure the new motor back in. We plugged it into the box, and it works! It was very simple, and it saved our ceiling from having to be cut open.

The "2 sones" must have been measured in a building across the street. This fan is loud enough to wake the dead!
