Do you have a wire tester?

If we can examine the switch box or the fan electric box we can verify if the problem is with the fan or your homes power.

This sounds like a lost conductor, if you can find it and terminate it back properly it should be an easy fix.

Buuut, you will have to work with live wires and probably splice something back together. I am assuming the fan/light was working and just stopped one day.
