MOTOR AND BUMPER KIT
Lifesaver of an item!!!
My bathroom exhaust uses a space that has dimensions not matching recent products, so before I found this part I was going to have to consider completely redoing the ceiling exhaust.
Thanks to this NuTone motor and bumper kit, I only had to replace the parts broken instead of the entire exhaust.
It was easy to replace, too. The only thing I had trouble with was getting the old barrel fan blade off of the old motor. Hot water and a little persistance took care of that.
Thanks so much for carrying parts that are hard to find!!!!

Replace the motor,not the whole vent unit
Replacing the whole bathroom exhaust vent unit would have meant piecing in plaster board and spending around $100 for a new unit. After 21 years, the old motor groaned and chugged its way to a slow speed that was not effective. The Google search led me to VentingDirect where I was able to match a replacement motor. It was a direct fit and only took me minutes to install. The order arrived a few days after I completed the easy, on-line transaction. Life in the bathroom is good again. Thanks, VentingDirect!

Slight mod required
All in all this is a great item. However, the motor is narrower than the original but the shaft is longer. So after instaling it into the housing for my fan, the fan impeller sat too deep and contacted the housing. Fortunately, a typical household faucet washer was just the right thickness and hole diameter was perfect. Slipped that on to the motor shaft before installing impeller and it worked perfectly. It would be great if washer/shims were provided with kit.

Nutone Motor Replacement
The product was an exact bolt-on replacement for the original equipment. Package did not include new squirrel-cage fan, but r/r of oem went easily. Before reassembly, mill file used to deburr edges of oem squirrel cage and reduce potential for snags or drags. I kept original rubber buffers for bolts, and re-used them. Supplier included four rubber stick-on buffers; I used them too.
Motor is quiet, fan functions as designed, moderately quiet.

2 years old & making noise
Replaced this two years ago and it makes a loud noise when operating now. Ran fine at install. Stuck buying another, no way out, older round fixture.

We haven't installed the product so we are presuming it works. The price was the best we found when looking to repair instead of replace.

Overall, an easy replacement. The most difficult part was removing the clip that retains the impeller on the old fan assembly.
