This forum has expert technicians but the pay is so low that you have to lay out the problem with exactly what you need advice on. Replacing parts the high priced techs do all the time at 100 per hour. Techs here like to repair or fix without replacing if possible.
Non working fan could be a fuse, bad wire connection, faulty switch, burned out motor, too much dust in the bearings, or jammed fan from mud dubber wasps. Or a simple push on the bar that opens the vent.
Descriptions are good but a picture is easier to see.
Do a search using the google dropdown menu.

Most fans are also protected with a "thermal fuse" which is taped to the body of the fan motor. it looks like a small capacitor with axial leads on each end. When the fan motor overheats this fuse blows removing power from the motor, this is a safety feature to prevent the motor from starting a fire and resulting consequences. Getting a replacement is a problem.

I bought a replacement from amazon:

I'll be installing it this weekend. I know parts are available for this fan, but the cost of the parts alone far exceed the cost of a new unit.

I'll also be replacing the 14" fan over the toilet, as well as the fridge vent too.
