I have a near mint condition Berns B20 Fan that gave up the ghost this weekend and I am looking for a replacement motor. Either original or aftermarket. I just want the fan to blow again! I am posting some pics including the tag on the motor. I cannot find anything on it! Please help or point me to someone who possibly can.

Sparks and smoke shot out of the windings. I cant figure out how to add multiple pics but will do my best. I would love to have the original motor repaired but will also take a replacement motorAlbum Link: https://photos.app.goo.gl/zUCPYYJEhyz1GnBG7

 I found a motor for sale at grainger that seems to have close to the specs that you have for your fan, I do not know what the shaft diameter was on the original motor was, but the link will have the dimensions of the motor.  Here is the link to the motor: https://www.grainger.com/product/CENTURY-Direct-Drive-Blower-Motor-4MB44 hope this helps.
