I have it installed for a few weeks and out of no where the fan and light goes off for 20 seconds and then goes back on

Asked by BRIAN October 1, 2020

Horrible customer service

How do you wire this if you don’t have a separate red neutral wire? I have a single pole switch with 12/2 wire.

Asked by Baffled September 15, 2020
2
Answers

1) You should get a real electrician. Neutral may never be red legitimately. Neutral must be white or gray. 2) If there are only two conductors at the switch, then power must be delivered to the fixture box. 3) If there is an existing light where you want the fan/light then wire the fan/light to the two wires which are currently feeding the light. If not, go back to step 1) and call an actual electrician.

Asked by Rick August 14, 2020

Answers

10" x 9-1/4' is the rough opening needed to get the unit in. The height is a little less than 6 inches so you would need a cleareance of a least 8 inch to get it into position.

I'm not familiar with sohn rating. However, the sound rating is 80 CFM.

Can this be properly installed with 2x4 rafter construction?

Asked by Tiredofmold May 29, 2020
5
Answers

Yes, my installers did no problem. I had a simple 2x4 ceiling installed in my loft bathroom for privacy reasons (previously was open but wasn't very soundproof), so 2x4 was sufficient since it wasn't load bearing. Fan installed fine. Note though that the light won't dim by any switch on the market without some buzzing.

Can you change the light color?

Asked by Rob May 23, 2020

Answers

No. It comes with a LED module which is nothing the user can change.

Is it possible to wire the fan and light on separate on/off switches?

yes. Box has seperate wiring for light and fan.

Answers

If the cover is too loose, you most likely installed the spring in the wrong direction. Turn them 180 degrees and you will see a much better pull from the wire clips. They should have printed additional instructions for this clip design due to the possibility of making a mistake. Thanks to the other answers which help me correct my installation.

Replaced a much smaller fan. Took awhile to remove old fan and cut the new hole. If you want the light to be separate from the fan you will need to purchase a new switch. The light is bright enough to light up our small bathroom. Will purchase another for our second bath.

I was in the market for a new exhaust fan in our bathroom. I was attracted to this fan because of the reasonable price, LED light and quietness listed. I read the reviews and was concerned because most stated they had a tough time installing the cover. I nearly changed my mind because of this but then thought, I need to try it first. If I can’t do it, I’ll return it. The unit was very easy to install and the directions were pretty straight forward with attaching the cover effortlessly. The fan is very quiet, the LED light gives the perfect amount of light and the fan clears the air in the bathroom, 2 piece 4x8 powder room, very quickly. I am very happy I decided to buy against the reviews stating the difficulty of the cover. Perhaps they made a change but it was very simple. You will enjoy this unit.

The pro's are it is a good looking, unobtrusive design. The bearings are sealed so they should not dry out; the sound of the fan is detectable yet not so loud to be aggravating. The strength of the fan does remove the steam from the room & mirror IF you are taking a warm shower (as opposed to a hotter shower which would create more steam in the room). If you prefer a hotter more steam producing shower and expect to use the mirrors afterward, you will not be able to however it can remove a good majority of the steam overall in the room. The light is very bright but cannot figure out why it is $20 more than the other 2, same item just without the LED Hopefully they last. Bought 1 of this type and two with no light in it for our bathrooms

The fan is EXTREMELY quiet. The LED light is very bright, and along with the vanity lights, the bathroom is well lit. I'm happy and satisfied. The installation was not too bad. The hardest part was trying to get screws through the side wall into the rafter. It would be nice if the holes were pre-punched!!

Looks way better than the grill style covers on most bath fans. Install was easier for me since I have exposed beams from my remodel. This fan is very very quiet. The light is great too. It looks like a lot of theses nutones have the same size housing and fan motors plus/minus other features. That should make replacements a breeze when needed. Why do bath fans still have those annoying clips for attaching? There must be a better way.

Yeah the clips are a struggle to insert, there got to be a better way. I would have preferred a couple of screws. Also the flapper falls out easily without you even realizing it causing you have to remove the fan again to re-inserted. And lastly, its really meant for a large bathroom due to the bright led light. In our small bathroom it was way to bright and I had to insert a plastic reducer to knock it down. The fan is however pretty quiet and it looks good but a bit pricey!

We are updating one of our bathrooms and really liked the design of this exhaust fan with the light. It has a sleek design and is extremely quiet. The directions made it easy for my husband to install, until he got to the cover with the light. We've never had so much trouble attaching a cover. Those little wire springs are difficult to manipulate and so far we've been unable to attach it correctly. One side always comes unattached. After numerous tries it still isn't secure. This doesn't seem to be a problem with most customers, so guess it's just us. My husband has done numerous remodels and new builds so we're a little surprised to have so much trouble with something that should be simple. For now he taped it up and we'll reread the directions and try again. But other than that, the fan is everything I wanted for our remodel.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The NuTone Roomside Series White 80 CFM Ceiling Bathroom Exhaust Fan with CleanCover and Dimmable LED light is an excellent replacement to the 19 year old bathroom exhaust fan that I am replacing. I used the templet on the side of the box to cut out the existing hole to the dimensions given 10.5 inches by 9.75 inches for the correct size opening. Following the instruction will allow for an easy install of the exhaust fan. I really like the quietness and the added bonus of the light which is ease to install following the included instructions. You have a separate plug for the light and fan which connect into the existing wiring.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Since I do most of my own installs, I look for as much snap fit and room side install as possible. This NuTone Roomside kit fits my bill. The features of this bathroom exhaust system are also great. Low profile with light and easy cleaning, 80 CFM air flow, squirrel cage fan for smooth quiet operation and a 4" EZDuct connector with TrueSeal damper. The light kit can be wired separate from fan or wired together. I want the light on when the fan is on. The light is also dimmable if you have a dimmer switch and want to take advantage of that feature. The damper saves on backdrafts which I also like very much. My fan is going over the main "seat", but with proper GFCI circuitry (which is not included) you could install over a tub or shower according to UL listing. I like most everything about this install kit and would recommend it to any do it yourselfer. Of course professional installation is always a good choice too.
