Questions & Answers

Is this Fan Spark Proof if used to exhaust solvent and flamable vapors ?

Asked by: Cholly
I am going to guess but I'd say no. They are usually rated for that and often the motor is separated from the fan and the fan is belt driven. Don't play with that! Spend the money and get the proper rated unit! You don't want to get hurt.

I have a fan in the bathroom ceiling but the thing has gone caput. I guess the motor finally went. Will it take alot of work to get the old one out?

Will it take a electrician to do any wiring?

New Fan in Bathroom

I don't currently have a fan in my bathroom, but need one for moisture control and to help ventilation. Do I need additional materials to install the fan in my ceiling? I have a small crawl space above the bathroom.
Asked by: No Toolbelt Diva
You will need some basic tools such as a drywall saw, measuring tape, screw driver, pliers. You also need some materials such as 3" duct depends where you need to run the duct , 3" hose clamp, cable, wire connectors, wood screws. Last, you need some skills. Good luck.

Customer Reviews

50 CFM Wall/Ceiling Mount Bathroom Exhaust Fan is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 648.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decibel level too extreme for residential bathroom While this might work great at 50CFM to remove air in a windowless bathroom, it's not worth the trade-off in DEAFENING noise for residential applications. Our old one burned out (literally electrical wiring producing burning and smoke), and replaced with same new fan. The old motor was crusted with grey dust (which is probably why it failed) even though the grill was cleaned and vacuumed constantly, but probably why it was half the noise when we took residence. Additionally, we have to run the fan continuously to keep moisture out of the small bathroom for a high occupancy residence. Looking at the specs, this fan is NOT rated for continuous operation, so it will probably fail sooner than later. Would possibly benefit from not being tied to light switch. Additional comment on noise level in a small bathroom: I cannot hear anything outside of the bathroom even with the bathroom door wide open; I've been in pleasanter industrial environments (I would post the Db level if I had a meter.)

I don't even have to fight steam/for from my super hot showers at all. There definitely isn't any moisture developing in my bathroom because of that. It's also quiet enough for me (because I hate loud exhaust fans).

This year I've been building a cabin and have purchased 10 of these exhaust fans for the small bathrooms. For the master bathroom and the outside bathroom (in Bear Lake Country we call it an outhouse), I have purchased the NuTone 765HFL which includes 1500 watt heaters and a lights. I'm very pleased with these smaller fans which fit my need, are reasonably priced--they are an economical workhorse. MarDell Parrish, Bear Lake, Idaho.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loud. Loud. Loud. You'll find this fan installed in a lot of rental properties because it's about the cheapest thing you can find. It may be cheap, but it is extremely loud and the fan will easily become unbalanced and be even louder. What you need to know about these exhaust fans is their CFM, and most importantly their SONES. SONES are a measurement of loudness. CFM is how much air the fan can move (cubic feet per minute). You can see by the specifications of this product that it is 4 SONES at 50 CFM. That's pretty loud compared to anything less than 4 sones. For even a few dollars more you can get a quieter fan that moves the same amount of air or more. You should avoid this product unless you absolutely have to have the cheapest thing you can find. To see a great SONES comparison check out this video: https://youtu.be/TaEggy4Ilns We just moved in to a rental property with this fan installed and immediately replaced it for something much quieter and with a higher CFM. A quick side note: Some people like the noise to drown out the activities they are performing the bathroom. 2 SONES and up should be more than enough noise to keep you comfortable. 4 SONES and up is excessive noise.

I had a 16 year old fan quit working, and it turned out to be less expensive to buy the whole thing than to just replace the fan motor. I removed the fan assembly from the metal enclosure and it fit right into the old one. It was also nice to be able to replace the old plastic grill that had yellowed with a new white one.

It is a shame that these units can't be swapped out fully without much effort. The brackets have changed in 20 years, however the motor and fan hasn't. I got creative and switched them out to the old bracket and saved myself a headache.

I took the motor out of the new one and replaced the old motor with it. It was a perfect fit. And the new grille looks good too.
