Bathroom exhaust fan motor replacement

How does this motor come out. Itís not working.

do I remove the just the Motor and fan blades or does the whole internal chassis come out?

I removed one screw near the plug.

is it just brute force at this point? Are there pivot points ?

You should be able to remove the motor by unscrewing the two screws on each side. They pass through the metal core of the motor into the support arm above. If you need to remove the entire plate to do that (easier than working overhead) the single screw that you removed at the right holds it in place. The left side is held by the molded "clips" there. The plate can be hard to pull down if the housing is slightly skewed. It sort of hinges on the clips and tilts to remove.

checkout this replacement.

does the fan wheel come off?

my old one seems to have a pressed meeting that will be destroyed upon removal.

id rather replace just the motor, rather than the motor and chassis.

There are two pivot points on the left.
After you remove the screw you pull that side of the motor mounting bracket down to remove it.

Is that a Nutone 668-K fan ?
Broan S97017065 base, motor and fan complete.

There are many motor/fan combos that will work.
Check visually and use Nutone 668-K in the search.
