I have two blower motors that died on a Gaggenau AH400-700

Customer Question

I have two blower motors that died on a Gaggenau AH400-700 Island hood. Can you suggest a replacement motor I can find that will work on this range. I bought it in 1999.

Your vent hood was made by Bosch Company. You should find the motor assembly you need at www.reliableparts.com. Type the words 'bosch hood vent motor' into their search box.

John: I searched per your direction.. and found the same thing I knew before. This Island Hood and its parts are no longer available. I called Gaggenau customer service to identify equivalent new parts from later models that may fit into my hood. No luck there. They couldn't service my blower motors either. Nor could they point me to a repair outfit that can re-condition or repair these two motors I pulled out.
Do you happen to know anyone who might be able to repair my damaged motors? I am attaching a few images showing the damage on one of the two motors. Please feel free to call me if that would work better:(###) ###-####(San Diego).

Thank you. The electrical suppliers that are best able to help you are Johnstone Supply(###) ###-####and Grainger(###) ###-####in San Diego. Try Johnstone first, as they specialize in HVAC motors.

John: I am not having much luck... neither Grainger, nor Johnstone carry any replacements. I am sending some images, and drawing with exploded view (from Gaggenau). See if you can think of a company that can restore and recondition this kind of damage, preferably in LA or San Diego.
