gas fireplace fans are do to failure because they use a glue to glue shaft onto windings....this can be repaired...take fan motor apart and pull shaft out...I use a pair of linesman's to gnarl the shaft up in the space that the windings will sit..[be careful not to bend the shaft]...then I lightly tap shaft back on to winding...make sure you set it deep enough to seat in the races [or bearings] will last a long time...but if you bend shaft ...its time for a new one...
