Bathroom vent identification


First post of many, I hope. I bought a new Hideout 175BH and am in the shakedown process. I noticed the vent fan will not crank up, unless I manually push (or pull up from the outside) on the vent cover. Once itís started, it cranks up and down just fine.
I isolated the problem to the worm gear and crank arm assembly - best I can tell the first tooth is completely worn down or broke off. Itís super cheap metal, and from the research Iíve done I was expecting to find some issues to correct. Thus far, itís the only one, knock on wood.
So obviously, this would be a warranty repair but after some quick research it looks to be a $20 part and is easy enough to install. Iíll take that to avoid dealing with the service department and ensure itís done right. My issue is that I cannot seem to find the manufacturer of the vent or a model to ensure I buy the right crank arm assembly. Does anyone know what Keystone uses in these TT or know if itís labeled in a hidden spot I havenít found?
