Now I know why my fresh air fan wouldn’t work! Apparently it got so hot. The brush melted off of its connection point.

wow, that must have been stuck , causing overload. was it clogged with debris? Mine was.

when i replaced mine i ordered a whole new fan/motor assembly from URO and its still going strong, i had no idea that these little fans could push that much air on the high setting!. , along with the seal kit from 914rubber its all better than new now.

URO fan assemblies are around $100 depending where you shop.

i have not checked recently , when i did mine 2 years ago they were about $80 then. Ims surprised they are not more than $100 with how everything has gone up in the last 2 years.
I looked at just doing the motor but not worth the time and trouble when a good assembly is available.

Phil, I perused your thread before I jumped in on this. Just like you, I had pretty much "buttoned up" everything when I noticed that my fan (which previously worked) was now kaput. No debris but the fan was stiff to turn so I suspect that was the nail in the coffin. Next I decided that I too had better check my WW's. They work but the squirter motor is kicking on. I'll check that today. I ordered the URO fan yesterday from carports.com. They're $80; $90 w/shipping & tax. Well worth it IMHO. They ranged from $150 on down depending upon the seller. A few m months back installed the 914rubber kit so to say I was a little pissed I hadn't checked the fan operation at that time would be an understatement.

Kent,
Be sure to test all three speeds on the motor before installing. I tested a motor with direct power to it only to find the resistor pack bad after installation.
