Smoke unit on my Hudson J3 Legacy is starting to fail....help!

The fan for the smoke unit on my NYC Hudson J3 (Lionel #1931450) has started to make a loud squealing sound.  Sometimes the smoke unit won't operate at all.  My LHS took the unit in for repair and unfortunately was not able to replace the fan/smoke unit.  They were not able to source the part due to Lionel's cut back on parts inventories.  I don't know if that is true or not, but the best they could do was to oil the fan's bearings and charge me for their time.  Within 5 minutes of having the steamer on the tracks at home, the problems started all over again.

Can you all give me a solid source for getting this locomotive repaired?  I have a hard time believing that a new fan/smoke unit assembly isn't available for a locomotive that is only a few years old.

Thanks for your help
