Hi I had the same problem with my fan motor. The problem with replacing 
the motor is that it is a 3 speed motor with 3 separately wired 
connections .    When I had it replaced with a good 2nd hand motor they 
gave me the old one.I pulled it apart very carefully as they are not 
really designed for being repaired,I found that the problem was that the 
common brush was worn out.It was $1500 $NZ for a new one and $500 for 
the 2nd hand one.Probably less that $10 for the brush if they were
