If the unit is in good shape then I would repair it.

New units will not last as long as the older ones.

Also new units usually have electronics in them so it is a good idea to plug the unit into a surge protector.

If the old motor blew open, installing a 1000joule surge protector in the wall outlet will prevent failure. I use a Belkin one available on Amazon $6.99
