Caframo Fan Sirocco Failure- Rewire?

One by one the speed/on/off and timer switches on these fans keep failing. Seems simple to pull the switches from the circuit and bypass, but the one that I did this with is forever stuck in low...
Can I bypass the primary circuit board -basically wiring directly to the motor? The wire size coming off the board to the motor is really pretty small -not sure if it's safe to do so...

Any suggestions (yeah, BUY A NEW FAN!) would be appreciated. And yes, they're out of warranty...

Not what you asked, but we had the same issue with the fan switches. I opened it up and sprayed with Corrosion X.... never had an issue again for the two more years we owned the boat.
