Model FG500NS Grille is not compatible with an Aubrey model 7500. It is only compatible with existing ventilation fan housings that measure 7" x 7" and 8" x 8".

Will this grille cover work with non ducted fan model 682 or 682NT?

Asked by Steven October 4, 2020

Answers

I am unsure if it will fit those specific models but if the existing model has the plug-in for a replaceable fan inside then housing then I'm sure you can make it work. I bought it to replace a cover on a fan that's over 30 years old. My existing fan motor actually extended below the ceiling so the new cover didn't fit up against the ceiling. I made a 3/4" tall frame for it and it looks like it was original. The springs lined up with the slots in the fan housing and everything looks and works great. The additional light is fantastic in an otherwise dark shower.

Can i hook up 2 switches one for the light and one for the fan

Asked by Karen September 29, 2020

That will depend on the fan itself. If there is a secondary circuit for the light in the housing, then yes.

0 CFM. You only get the grille cover with a light in it. Your existing bathroom fan's CFM will stay the same when you install this.

Noisy little fan
It may be easy to install but from a female perspective it’s super noisy and I did not like it in my bathroom at all.

This Nutone grille with LED light is very easy to install with newer Nutone exhaust fans. It is bright and not dimmable. But what I did was cut out a smoke color piece of plastic (from a computer screen glare reducer, that is designed to reduce light and is subject to PC screen heat) the size of the lens, and cut four strips of double back tape, placed them on the border edges to hold the sheet of plastic. It is just warm to touch and after 6 months, no issues. So it would be safe to say, that my improvisation is ok to do. But I assume no responsibility for this suggestion. I am a professional improver and extremely careful to avoid any issue. I'm just trying to help. I also mitered a one by one wood frame larger then this grille, attached it to the ceiling below our very old exhaust fan and drilled two holes on opposite sides of the Nutone grille to secure it to the wood frame. This had to be done because out very old exhaust fan doesn't accomodate this grille. Nobody looks up, so it is not noticeable. But it does look good and the brightness is subdued. See photo.

Wow! It really does install in 5 minutes or less. My husband and I were skeptical - and were concerned that our 17 year old fan might not have the plug inside it. Well, it did and it was so easy to install. Our hall bathroom has always been too dark. I was thrilled when I stumbled across this upgrade. The LED light is really bright.

This really eliminates the need to turn on your lights and the vent fan separately. The fan light provide ample lighting in my master bedroom bathroom which is quite large. I do not have to turn on the eight 40-watt round globe lights, which also save me on my electric bill. It also looks great and modernistic and I plan to buy them for all of my bathrooms. I installed it in less than a minute. Good choice.

I had an old Broan fan and the light wasn’t bright now matter what bulb you put in it. I got this kit to try and it’s amazing! This kit also allows you to add a light to your plain fan as long as it has the broan two prong fan or light plug in socket inside your fan box. The led is super bright and will light up my entire bathroom with just the one light. Super easy to install using the spring clips. I was done in 2 minutes and that included getting a ladder!

Bright light for bath fan. I had an older metal cover for my hall bath fan and it was not very attractive. My home was built in the 80's and it really needed an upgrade. This LED light is very bright and quite nice. I like that the installation took less than 10 minutes and the improvement is very noticeable. The light cover simply plugs into the existing fan plug and then the metal arms fit into the anchor slots. It is a compression fit. No tools are needed and the light is a great addition to the bathroom. The cover is plastic. The NuTone name is a well known brand.
