Hope you get it sorted soon, Ged.
Do you use this extractor with a planer and thicknesser? If so, you'll probably find that the larger shavings produced from these machines get clogged up in the chicken wire.
With most new extractors, there's some sort of grill already in place to prevent larger objects being sucked up and, as you've discovered, destroying the fan... Many of use are guilty of cutting these out though , purely because they cause shavings to clog.
