If you're fans are Ventline the parts are available. I posted earlier in this thread the sources for them. If they are not Ventline then all bets are off. Mine has been good since I repaired it. I'm very careful to not over do the pressure upon closing. The motor just applies too much force and warps the housing.

I read the following post, but you gave no part number or source. So, I'm not sure.

Now comes the " BUT" part. It's shipped direct to me from Airstream and they have a minimum order and since it's below the minimum it would be an extra $10. Plus shipping.
Well, I found another source with no minimum and ordered it. Price was less but not by much. I would have preferred to support the Airstream company by getting it from them.
Is this what works with the electric lift motor?

Sorry Alan. Airstream had sent me a picture part breakdown. The lifting mechanism is referred to as an " operator" on the drawing and part # VO115-04. I think I got my part through E-trailer. They were very helpful in making sure I got the correct part. Yes this part with a very slight and easy modification matched exactly with the old part and yes it worked with the electric lift motor.

Thanks!!!! That helps a lot.
If you still have a pdf or jpg copy of the picture with the parts breakdown, it would be great if you could post it here.
My owners manual does not have that drawing included.

I'll give it a try tomorrow. I'll see how it comes out. If I can't manage it PM me with your address and I'll send a copy pony Xpress. I do still have what they sent me.

Happy Thanksgiving.

OK Alan here it goes. We'll see if it will work for me. If it comes through this is the breakdown of the Ventline ceiling fan in the bathroom of our 2001 Excella. I hope it will be of some help to you.

My 1999 Excella's original bathroom vent fan is a Ventline model V2119. A newer model is still available, including the wall switches. Some of the fan's features have been improved. Its model number is V2119-603-00.

When I got up on top to see if my operator had spread out like others had problems with, I found that one of the gears on the lift arm had worn to the point of not making proper contact. There is no way for me to repair that part, so replacing it is my option.

I bought the replacement lift operator from E-Trailer, part number BV0115-04. That part comes with a plastic knob since this operator works on both the manual and electric Ventline fans. The cost was $11.98, including economy shipping.

I installed the BV0115-04 lift operator. Did not use the plastic knob. It is a perfect fit using the original lift motor. No modification required.
