Hi, I was wondering what the best option is, The OEM Fan for the 5790 80622 is about $300 I was wondering if there are better choices for cheaper and if so which ones are good and which should I stay away from.

Any idea what places are good to deal with as far as ordering. Thanks

The Aftermarket ones seem to have a sealed motor or something along those lines, Any idea where I can get the current motor specs, I did not see it on the Volgerzang sight and its not on the motor.

I got mine here. Half the price of the $300 I too saw just about everywhere else. They first said my order would be delayed a week or so, but then they shipped it right away.

I didn't closely examine the tag, but I opened the box when I got it and it is factory style like the photo. I wanted one that was factory style.

You won't see the tag easily when mounted in your stove. It is on the bottom of the motor.

Finally got a few answers, They have mostly aftermarkets in stock but they do have one OEM unit which they are sending me for the listed price.

Finally after a little under a month I have a new OEM Fan at home, People were nice at teh above company but they did not seem to do anything unless you called regularly and pushed them. The part I needed was sitting on their shelf the whole time.

Glad you finally got it. I'll keep your experience in mind if I buy anything else from them.
