The fan has a 6" exit duct but our old house has 3" duct work going from our old bathroom fan to the attic. Can this fan be installed properly by connecting the 6" duct to the 3" duct?

Answer: 
Physically, yes it can be attached to a 3" duct, but that's a bad idea. This fan is rated to push 140 CFM through a 6" port, which is ~28 square inches in cross-sectional area. A 3" duct is about 7 square inches. So the fan will be trying to push air through a pipe that's one-fourth the size of of the 6" duct for which it's designed. This will do two things: 1) airflow (CFM) will be reduced (imagine Read More

This will do two things: 1) airflow (CFM) will be reduced (imagine yourself trying to blow air through a drinking straw vs. blowing air through a bigger pipe), and 2) the motor will be working harder than it should, which will ultimately shorten the life of the motor.
Install 6" ductwork, or buy a smaller fan designed for 3" or 4" ductwork. Read Less

Answer: 
You will have to reduce from 6" duct and match your duct. It can be done but you will lose(air flow) capacity as fan will be operating with higher back pressure. Short duct may not be to bad (5' to 10'). Longer lengths will increase the loss of air but still more than a smaller fan. It is critical to exit the fan and make any turns with 6" and then reduce to 4" or 3".

Answer: 
You could adapt it down to 3", but that will provide only 1/4 of the air flow in a 6" vent. Better than nothing, but it would function a lot better if you could run a 6" vent.

You can use reducer fittings to take the 6" outlet and step it down to 3". Personally, I was set up with an existing 4" duct connection I did not feel like changing out on the day when I was installing the new fan.
The biggest drawback to all of this is that the fan will be noisier than it would be with a larger duct.

You can reduce to 3" but it will not be as efficient as using a 6". It will still pull the moisture from the bath, it will just take a bit longer and be a lot noisier than it would be with a larger duct. Good luck!

After someone takes a shower, there's condensation which collects on the plastic grids and then the water begins to drip. Doesn't seem right to have water collection around an electric item - is there a setting that needs to be adjusted?

Yes. I mounted mine vertically, no problem. If there's something in the product installation instructions that recommends against vertical installations, I didn't see it; but maybe you should check just to be safe. Mine's working fine vertically, super quiet, very pleased.

140 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet We needed both quiet and plenty of air movement (CFM). This is by far the quietest bathroom exhaust fan I've bought or used, very pleased. Didn't even realize it was running the first time I turned it on, until I saw the exhaust damper move in response to the airflow. Seems to be a quality build, everything worked right out of the box (as it should!). Will buy again (my wife and I renovate homes), and gladly recommend to others. Note that it's exhaust port is 6" diameter, whereas many bathroom fans are 4" ports; so there's slightly higher cost for 6" ducting vs. 4" ducting, add'l clearance required to run the duct from the fan to the outside of the house, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fan This fan was installed during a bathroom remodel. It is extremely quiet, yet moves air very efficiently; installation was straightforward, and it worked exactly as expected. This is a great value if you only need a fan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this product to replace a smaller loud fan in our bathroom. I wish i had read the other... I bought this product to replace a smaller loud fan in our bathroom. I wish i had read the other reviews here before i bought this in the store, but everything that is said about the poor installation instructions and poor design of this product are right on. This should have been an easy install if it was better designed. I had a smaller fan so I knew i would need to cut a bigger opening. This product really is designed for a new construction, not a replacement of an existing fan. The instructions were completely useless. I mean there is nothing of value in there whatsoever. I installed using the same stud that the old fan was attached to, but the brackets provided were too large to fit through the same cutout, and could not be installed from above as designed. They were too long to be able to feed into the grooves on the fan between the ceiling joists. I also had to remove the whole side of the fan wit the duct and electrical to even fit into the opening as well. None of this is mentioned in the instructions. I had to cut the brackets to make them fit, had to cut the bottom of the side of the unit that was removed, because as build it could not be installed from above, even though by design, it could not fit through the opening from below. An install that should have taken less than an hour if properly designed, ended up taking several hours after all the cutting and modification required. The fan is quite, but after all this it really doesn't move much more air than the builder grade Nutone unit that was half the size that it replaced. In my other bathrooms, I have decided to go with the Nutone upgrade replacement fan that goes right in the same box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet fan that moves lots of air. I bought this fan as a replacement for a broken one in a 9x3' utility room. The fan is really quiet; you essentially only hear the air moving through. This is important for me as I have it on a timer that runs most of the day. The fan moves lots of air, and even when the washer, drier and self-cleaning litterbox are running, the room still feels fresh. The cons would be that the instruction manual is terribly written up and you need access above the ceiling, which means that if you're doing replacement, you need to cut the hole bigger and patch it up after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ceiling Bath Fan Originally I purchased exhaust fan for my master bathroom and it worked great. Decided to add another fan to my second bathroom. I have owned the first fan 1 1/2 years and the second for a few months. Although the fans are not totally quiet, they do the job. The noise of the fan is not extreme. The product is a great buy and recommend for anyone remodeling their bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FAN! READ THIS FIRST!!!!!!! First off, you do not need attic space to install this fan. I put one in my bathroom and it is amazing. Clears the steam in the room in 30 seconds and keeps it out. To install without an attic: You may need to open the existing hole for the fan because this one is larger than the old little ones the house comes with. After you open the hole you should have the beam the old fax one was mounted to. You can also cut some 2x4 and add some more support braces to mount the fan too. OK all you have to do is unscrew the motor from the fan cage and take it out. then you will be able to put the cage into the ceiling and have access to screw it into the wood beams. After you have it screwed in, you can put the motor back in. I did it. The trick is to take it apart just a little bit, put into ceiling and then re assemble while in ceiling. I am going to do my other bathroom this weekend and will give you a better step by step instructions. I did the last bathroom a year ago so I may be leaving out a step of 2. I have been though many fans and this one cant be beat. I will add photos too

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It can be mounted from below but the instructions don't say There are three Phillips screws on one side of the inside lip that removes the side with the discharge on it. This side goes in first with the hose and wiring hooked up then the rest of the can slides into place and the three screws re-installed. I had to call Home Depot's phone an expert to get the instructions. .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fan seems to be good quality but installation manual is terrible. Do your self a favor when you open up the box, throw everything away except for the fan and the cover. The suspension brackets are a joke. They don't span a 24" truss width as they claim in the manual. The side with the electrical and exhaust can be removed to insert into ceiling. Just remove the 3 screws on the bottom side and unplug the electrical connection. Good Luck
