Depends a LOT on your model and on whether one-speed, multi-speed, or infinitely variable speed fan unit - the motor and control board itself (and in most cases it is the board, not the motor that is bad) can typically run from about $150 range for off-brand single speed motor or about $200-250 Carrier - and about double that for higher-end variable speed motors, and $50-200 for the board off-brand or $100-450 Carrier OEM - plus probably $200-300 labor depending on access issuesm so commonly in the $400 range plus or minus using off-brand parts or probably more in the $500-1000 range using OEM parts - which I would recommend if you want them to last.


If you meant only the fan itself (bents blades maybe) around $100 AC contractor chargeout for many models, though there are some listed for that much so more like $200 bill-out rate - plus probably $100-150 labor to replace it in most units, assuming decent accessibility.


Because so much depends on your specific cause of failure and model and system configuration (furnace blower moving air or an A/C air handler for instance), you would really need bids from several Heating and A/C (your Search the List category) contractors to find out what the "going rate" is for your specific problem. And unless the fan is visibly bent or broken or the motor is running but squeeling or such so you know the motor itself is shot, you will need a diagnosis (not free) to determine if problem is with thermostat setback or anticipation setting, motor, fan, motor control board, or maybe (if hard or slow-starting) a blown capacitor on the motor.


Or maybe not even a motor/fan problem - if lakc of or inconsistent cooling is the problem, could be refrigerant gas leakage or TXV control valve failure, condensor issues, etc.
