Replacement Exhaust Fan

I have an island cooktop stove with an exhaust fan mounted on my roof through a series of ducts. The brand is TradeWind and model # is VR1000. I need to replace the squirrel cage blower fan but have not been able to locate a replacement. It appears the company has gone out of business. The ID is 10”, with 4” height and 1 5/8 outside hub with ½” center. Can you guys recommend a source?
Thanks
Steve

Pull the motor out and write down any identifying marks from within the housing. Take the motor and your notes to an electric motor repair shop, they'll be able to source a replacement motor for you. I've done this several times with ancient bathroom exhaust fans to "restore" them to their former function and glory.

See if these are the parts you need https://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/smartsearch.aspx
I've had very good service from these folks.

Re: Replacement Exhaust Fan

Guys, thanks for the replies. I have tried repairclinic.com and I found a possible match(p/n 1172805 - no pic available) but they had never actually handled that part number and could not verify the specs. The motor is new, that's how I got into this fix. The motor went out and when I pulled the blower fan from the bad motor (probably been 30 + years since any maint performed on it), I bent it just enough to cause a wobble. The local Grainger store was able to match the motor but no one in town, even, Grainger can match the blower wheel. I have found two other part numbers on the web, both claim to be Bosch P/N (PT8509899 & AP2836633) but they do not cross reference to BOSCH. I was hoping soeone may know of a dealer that may still carry old parts or can cross reference the Trade-wind P/N.
thanks again
Steve

They don't have the complete assembly but they do carry the fan, the motor, and the capacitor separately. When you go to the site enter the model number VR1000 and it lists the parts.
