Fan motor in bathroom vent is crap!!!

Fan motor in bathroom vent is crap. They want $40 bux for a new motor and even the motor when new is loud.

Here is the fix.
=============

Well I bought a 12 volt 250mm ( approx: 10 inch ) computer fan $20 bux. drilled 2 small holes on the plastic cross member bolted on the new computer fan
to the cross member. Then wired the new computer fan to the wires from the old fan was connected too. Super Quiet and uses less electricity
Will suck out 104 Cubic Feet Of Air Per min.

Old Fan motor:

solutions Inc. NDC4030m12-26 and Noisy! $40 and is loud!
12 volt ! amp 12 Watts
=================
Computer Fan 12 volt 3.6 watts super quiet! $20 free shipping!

Enjoy

Great idea. A possible source which is even cheaper is to just pull a fan from an old computer or a desktop computer power supply. They are 12dc also.

Awesome idea! Do you have any pictures of the finished product.

When we got our TT in September, the first thing I did was replace my fan with a Vortex II. It was an easy retrofit and no messing around with the roof.
