Kickspace heater repair

The fan bearing is making noise on my 20 year-old bathroom kickspace heater. The fan motor is made by Gleason Avery ( model CSA 35250) and their catalogue no longer shows this model. I've contacted them via email without response and I'll call this week to try and get through.
I'd like to avoid replacing the entire unit that otherwise works fine. Any other suggestions for sorting out a replacement fan.

The numbers on the other side are stamped in white ink and a little hard to read, but I think they are:
2508 A0306I 9050 (could also be 60), .30 AMPS

Fasco will more than likely have a replacement for your old one. You'll need some info like fan shaft diameter, rotation direction and RPM's.

Click on "download C-frame catalog" under the picture of the motor.

Tuff to find info on Fasco,cross reference used to be much better,that's why I was asking for more numbers.

Thanks all for your responses. The Fasco chart doesn't appear to have an equivalent 120 volt .3 amp motor. The shaft is .1811 x 1 in. and Im not sure about RPM

I got an email back from Gleason Avery:

We are in receipt of your e-mail looking for a replacement motor. Price for a new motor is $ 85.00 each. Plus $ 25.00 s/h UPS Ground (US only).

I found the manufacturer sticker on the inside of the housing. It's an Electromode Model No. KSF Air Heater. The current roughly equivalent model,CKHA20D31, is available for about $180. I'm checking to see if I can find out if it has the same motor configuration and use that info to order a replacement, but it might be hard to determine.

Given the heater is over 20 years old, would it be better to replace the whole unit?I'm thinking of an only $80 cost differential and the potential for other components like limit switches that could fail?

Check the price of a new heater,it might be easier to find a heater then a replacement motor.
