And as for the fan resistor, people source way cheaper aftermarket version that work perfectly and are often found on Amazon. Do a search on the subject.
I did a search and aftermarket resistor runs 150 or more.

I did not say easier to replace - easier to get the whole assembly, i.e. cheaper.

Used assembly is way cheaper than the resistor itself.
