Approximately $350, $150 for replacement fan (80cfm-1 sone) $200 labour. Assuming the ductwork was done correctly.

As Dave said, $325.00 to $375.00 would be a fair price. Are you sure its the fan? Have you established that there is power at the fan? If you haven't, its worth doing.

Assuming your airking bfq90 is still available, you should be able to simply replace the insert. If you own some screw drivers, you can buy a replacement and replace the inner motor frame alone, no extra charges. Simply plug, screw, insert change, screw and plug, done. Throw away the new outer shell as it won't be needed.

We charge $380.00 for removal of your old fan and install of a new panasonic bath fan. No drywall damage either.


Fan also included.

As Robert said you should be able to just replace the insert. No need to hire an electrician to do that since it has a plug for the electrical connection. This is a job for a handyman.

Remove the insert, go to the store and find one that is the same or that will fit. If it is an older model you might not be able to get an exact replacement so open the box to find something that will work.

The cost would be 1/2 hr to remove the insert, 1 hr shopping time and 1/2 hr to install the new insert, so 2 hr labor plus the cost of the fan.

This would be a service call in the amount of $300.00 for Labour only.

Hope this helps.
