***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 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.

Super simple replacement motor and fan for the original unit that, after 14 years, died in our master bathroom. The hardest part was getting the latter into the bathroom. I wish this was a product that was stocked at my local store instead of needing to order it online.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DesertBroncoFan Works surprisingly well
The exhaust fan in our master bathroom hasn't worked since we moved in 20 months ago. The motor was frozen so I needed a replacement. The only problem was the fan exhausted straight up into a 7" round duct that had a flap above it to keep the rain/outside out.
I wasn't sure if the replacement motor/impeller would work since the impeller is designed to push the air out of a side duct but I installed it anyway. Even though it isn't the perfect design for replacement of the original fan, it moves enough air to vent it out of the bathroom.

Very easy fix for a 30-year-old bathroom fan. With any luck I'll buy its replacement in 2046.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sanpowaydiego I would give it 6 stars
The minimum cost to replace the bathroom fan is $300. Some contractors ask more. It is fair enough as it may incur several attic, ducts even ceiling works. But there is another easy, low cost solution. By using this product, I fixed my old and noisy fan within 10 minutes. Cost is less than $20.

Everything was right, except the squirrel cage supplied with the motor was way too small for my housing. I had to use the original fan blade, which didn't fit the shaft. Gorilla glue works wonders. The motor is a little loud, but it works well and I didn't have to change the housing.
