This product directly replaced my old worn-out bathroom fan. It installed in 5 minutes after pulling out the old fan and motor assembly. This product includes the fan, motor, and assembly. Quick fix!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by r0ck Worked great for my application
My house was built in '83. The fan in the bathroom is an oddball brand, that I couldn't find replacement parts for. After doing a little research, I noticed that the motors themselves all looked about the same, and had the same mounting locations to the metal frame. The metal frame that came with this fan did not fit my housing, but the motor and fan looked nearly identical. Both even had the same CFM and Sone rating. I swapped motors and kept my original housing. You just lift the fan blade off of the motor shaft, and unscrew the two nuts that hold the motor to the frame. Installation was the opposite. It was a direct replacement and works great. Something to think about if you find yourself in the same situation with one and don't want to have to go through the trouble of modifying your whole fan setup to fit a different model in there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjjnam Exactly what I needed
When the 20-yr-old exhaust fan died, I was afraid I'd have to hire someone to come install a new one and likely pay around $100 for the fan itself. Instead, this popped right in -- one screw and it was done. Speaking of which, save the screw from the old one-- this didn't include one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EngineerLou Exact Fan Replacement!
I had problems with noisy fans (Vibrations) when I purchased my home 5 years ago. I went to Home Depot and purchased 3 of these replacement fan units. The one problem I had was the quality of the replacements at that time. Some were very noisy (Vibrated) fresh out of the box and I had to open the boxes in the store to try them out before I purchased. I brought back 2 at that time for exchange.There was a definite quality problem 5 years ago that, may have been fixed by now.
The first box I opened now (and tried in the store) ran quiet (no vibrations), as expected. No problems after I installed the replacement. The Exhaust Fan ran like New, NO Vibrations heard, just the fan noise!
The replacements I installed 5 years ago (I only run them ocassionaly) are still running like new.
NOTE: Make sure you get the right model replacement for your unit. I believe there are 2 different type Exhaust Fan assembly replacements available (AC plug hole cutout location). See label on fan unit assembly (under plastic grill cover) for your assembly model number. Or, remove it and bring it to the store to compare with a new one.
TO REMOVE/REPLACE: Follow these instructions.
FAN REMOVAL: Just remove the Plastic Grill Cover (Pull Down on sides of grill cover, remove the springs hooked from frame holes only), unplug the unit. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry on the edge of one side to unsecure the unit from a clip in the center edge and pull down that side. (Assembly Edge sticks above metal clip only on one side) Pull the Fan Assembly down from that one side. The opposite side has 2 metal tongues holding the fan unit in the ceiling metal frame, the fan unit just slides out now.
INSTALLING NEW FAN UNIT: Insert the 2 metal tongues in the holes of the metal ceiling frame. Then push the unit up until the edge snaps above catch point. Plug in the electrical plug. (You can test the fan now) Put the cover springs back into the holes and let cover rise back into place.
You are Done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmzempr nice and easy replacement
Ugh. The fan quit working. Dang it. We've all had that feeling before. Take the cover off and wow. A few years worth of fuzz build up. I then took it down and cleaned it out, put it back in to see if that helped. Nope. Tested the outlet and the was working fine.
I then start the process of looking for a replacement after sizing up the box and current hole. I then realized all the work that would go in to replacing with a whole new unit. Didn't want to do that and then I saw that someone had just replaced the motor. Hmmm.
Found the motor at the store that looked like it had the right cut outs etc and was the right size for the one that I needed to replace. Kinda bummed though because it was the same price as the new cheap unit. Oh well. Turns out, this was the exact same unit that I had. I totally winged it but for $15 it was worth the try. Probably spent more time trying to get the cover back on than anything else.
Extremely happy that it went that fast. Wish all of my other 'repair' jobs were that easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ripk9 A great $14 fan for 8' x 5' bathrooms
This product's description is spot on: $14.00, for bathrooms up to 45 sf with average ceiling height and is 4 on the noise scale. It was super easy to install. Took me only 5 minutes to change it out. It actually took me longer to get the cover off the 30 yr old one. I also like that the fan is NOT quiet. It's not obnoxiously loud, but I think it offers the right amount of sound buffering for my guests with some "cover up" noise available. Seriously.....no one want to hear all that (...or be heard!)
