does this come with the grill mounting nut?

Asked by Dan April 28, 2016

Answers

Comes with a grille mounting SCREW - not a nut. I had to modify the internal bracket to take a nut (I epoxied on) instead of the bolt that was hanging down for the prior old grille.

The size of the grill I need to replace is a10 by 10 in AD

Asked by AD April 14, 2016

Answer

We do not sell grilles by size but rather based on the model number of the fan. This is because while 2 grilles may be the same size, they might use different means of attaching to the fans. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 888-336-3948 for assistance in determining the correct replacement grille for your fan.

I had two old Nutone bathroom exhausts units that were not working when I bought my condo. I was able to find replacement motors and fans on-line. The original grill was very ugly and protruded from the ceiling by about an inch and a half but mounted in the center with a nut. I was able to modify the bracket to replace the bolt hanging down with a nut (I epoxied the nut to the bracket) and then use this grille instead which comes with a decorative bolt that screwed into the nut on the bracket. Now I have a nice flush and clean looking fan grille which makes the bathroom look much better.

Starting with the Home Depot mobile app, this was a great quick project. Although the bar code would not scan due to dirt and wear, the app was able to take a pic of the old fan and get the perfect model replacement, app shows where in store it is and how many they have, so because this wasn’t high priced was not worth the shipping, just picked up in store. Install was very easy, just bend the edge of the old one a little when removing and it popped down. The Home Depot mobile app is Very Very good. This actual fan product is very good also, fairly priced and easy to install.
