Attic fan motor replacement


The motor in our roof mount attic fan went out. The old motor is Clark United 120V 60HZ and 1.7 amp. Apparently Clark United is no longer in business and I can not find any replacement motors with the 1.7 amps! Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

Might be easier to just replace the entire unit.

Re: Attic fan motor replacement


I find itís cheaper to buy the whole gable fans. Motor is the same at least in the ones Iíve seen and you get a new blade and thermostat if necessary. Itís a little tricky to get the fan blade loose from the attic side but Iíve done it a bunch of times and it works well.
