Anyone have to change their bathroom vent fan? Mine stopped working this past summer. Should I replace with same vent fan or get larger fan with reversible fan.

I replaced mine with a more battery friendly CREATE-A-BREEZE fan. It was a bit of a struggle to get the old housing off the roof. I used butyl tape and caulking and have had no leaks.
It works great and will suck the door shut when running.

We replaced ours with a Maxxair low end, 4 speeds, reverses, manual vent cover, only uses less than an amp on the low speed, a little less than 3 A at the highest speed.  The openings are mostly standardized.  Butyl tape and Dicor sealant.  No leaks.  The inside "molding" may have to be cut down as the thickness from the top of the roof to the inside ceiling is variable.  That was the biggest fiddly part.

Mike,
Simplest inexpensive option, from my perspective, would be the Heng's Vortex I single speed for about $40 on amazon. This is a direct replacement for your failed fan, so you don't have to fool with the existing vent housing. Still, it is an upgrade with a more efficient turbo type fan. Better still, go to the Vortex II which is a 3 speed reversing unit for about $55. I am very close to doing this myself,
