I have a Summit brand Range Hood. It uses a 650 CFM 420W 3.5A blower motor (3 speed) with 25uF capacitor. The manufacturer in Bronx, NY does not have any in stock currently. I guess it comes either from Italy (Elektromech motor) or Turkey (Silverline assembler).

Can I use some other brand's blower assembly ? The below Broan blower assembly (SB06001983) looks very similar externally to my existing blower (the wattage is less but that's okay, probably means lower speeds)

You can probably use any fan you want providing it will fit in place, the voltage is the same, and the openings in the fan are the same size and location.

Thank you. The opening is definitely the same i.e. 6" dia.

I need to check the capacitor uF required by the new motor too I guess. I will be trying to retain both the existing capacitor as well as circuit board.

Btw, the capacitors on range hood, are they for only start or for both start and run?

OP here. Turns out Summit Appliance / Felix Storch of Bronx did have a spare blower motor assembly in stock and I got it within 2-3 days. And I am not sure why but they did not charge me even though I had given my credit card details.

Exhaust works fine now. For 2-3 days (when exhaust was out of commission) I had kept a small fan in one of the windows pointing out and ran it when cooking.

the amount cfm of air the fan moves is important . fans can be the same size and voltage but have different cfm rates .

Of course cfm matters, but the original is 650. The exhaust port on the original would likely support fans that have 1000 cfm's unless it was abnormally small.

Though the Broan and Summit blower assembly look alike and probably are alike in physical dimensions but there are some wiring differences. Not only they have different number of wires coming out of the blower assembly but the circuit board could be different as well as the external capacitor value could be different.

Also, even though the number of speeds and hence the number of voltage taps is the same (i.e. three in both cases) but we don't know how much voltage is applied by the circuit board for each of those taps (though it should not matter since it will only make the level 1 and level 2 speeds different from the original ones). Level 3 speed I think will get the full voltage anyway in both brands circuit board i.e. 115V.

They did charge me actually. Just saw my CC statement today. Strange, never got any kind of invoice or bill
