IEC symbol for a cabinet fan

I was trying to get away from having to order 60617 because it is so expensive for the whole library and just use the library that came with ACE but I am having trouble deciding if this is the appropriate symbol for a cabinet fan.

 

VMO1M3M

 

I am confused though since 81436-2 suggests that a fan is GQ and this symbol is MA. ( I know I can always change it...) The old IEC "motor with a fan" symbol had something that looks like a figure eight (fan blades??) as part of the symbol and now it looks like a pneumatic reducer which is a little confusing also....

 

It kind of makes sense that it would be a motor symbol but I just want to make sure I am using the right symbol/tag and not go down a rabbit hole.

 

ARGH!!!! This IEC stuff is really starting to give me a headache!
