          So far so good. The first motor lasted 20 years. The second only two. This is the third. Motor insulation has a higher rating and a fuse was added in line with the low speed. If it blows it will only take an hour to get to it. I can guarantee that it will be eliminated. Probably should have taken it out. Time will tell.

          Drop In Replacement For Ventmatic 30 Inch Belt Drv
          This motor replaced a malfunctioning motor on a Ventmatic 30 inch belt driven house fan we purchased five years ago. Recently it would start slow and never come up to a speed fast enough to open the louvers. I had replaced the capacitor and also bypassed the wall switch, both common culprits but they checked out ok. The new motor works as expected and I noticed it starts up and opens the louvers faster than the original even when it was new.

              The replacement motor works great and the shipping was next day to my house. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase

              Works as intended. Old one wouldn't start on its own. Had to use a stick to push start the blades. Fairly easy to install if you can fit up through the frame with the fan blades removed.
