10 year old thermador downdraft vent--repair or replace?

I have a vent unit that is now failing..it rises from the center island ...but now no longer does. It was installed in 2003.

An appliance repair company thought it was fixable, but warned me that it could take many hours to remove and diagnose. Parts appear to be available.

A new unit is approximately $1200, with an additional $800 for motor.

is it foolhardy to repair this unit?

I am not sure if cutout is the same for new Thermador units or if it fits other brands..but will attempt to find out

Thanks in advance for suggestions

John
