one day it was working the next day it was not. Checked fuse and its OK. Then went to switch which is controlled by cover; it seems alright. Fan is approx. 16 yrs old. Need suggestions. Thanks in advance for your input.

Check to see if there is any power in the circuit.

If it's not working it will definitely be quiet. I agree with rrupert, make sure you have power going to the fan before you do anything.

Check for power AT the fan motor with the switch on. If you have power at the motor and no go, the motor died

I would start at the switch and check for power.

How did you verify the cover switch? Did you make sure the plunger moves freely up and down and also test the continuity with the plunger in both and up and down position? Typically the plunger gets stuck in the down (off) position so when the cover is raised the switch is still open circuit so the fan doesn't run.

You need to use a volt meter and follow the power.
If the motor is bad, you can get a replacement but it wont be as quiet as the original.
