Q:I have an older model that is making a thumping noise. The model is discontinued but Panasonic says this model is the replacement. Does that mean it is the same size opening as the old one. Can I install a dimmable switch in place of the old light switch?

Answer This Question

A:  No on the dimmer switch. Pipes are the same. No information on hole size.

      A:  If Panasonic says this replaces your model, then check dimensions they give. Ours lite in the fan was re-connected to dimmer switch. Love it!

      by|Dec 28, 2022

        A:  Can’t answer your “dimensions” question. You can, however, install a dimmer switch.

            A:  The opening should be framed on at least 2 sides. The bracket is flanged so you can screw into the framing. 

            by|May 5, 2022

              A:  Measure the hole size square, check rafter spacing, cut hole. The z-bar will fit to each rafter side. No need to crawl in attic to install the framework.

                A:  NO it is not a changeable bulb. You could just use the nightlight with the fan and wire the main light to a separate LED fixture.

                      A:  Obviously the cover is off. If the opening is the correct size, it’s just a matter of lining up the exhaust, connecting it, and securing the fan in place. The electrical connections not withstanding. 

                      by|Mar 14, 2022

                        A:  You have to take it apart. Most all fans for (old work) require some type of disassembling. It easier this way so you don't hold the weight of the fans if working from below. I have installed 3 of these from above and 2 from below. They are good fans and you won't go wrong. There is 1 or 2 screws to disassemble the fan. It's simple. Home depot should really issue some discount codes for helping make these sales.

                            A:  You're not supposed to take it apart. It should've come with mounting bracket and screws which screw into a ceiling joist

                            by|Mar 15, 2022

                              A:  The instructions that I got with the unit were ok. You certainly don't have to take the fan apart in order to install it. I changed the way to support the fan such that it hangs from a wide wooden board that rests on the top of two joists in the attic. Then I bolted the board to the joists. This way I was able to position the fan bottom correctly with the bathroom ceiling.

                                Install was moderate difficulty - I am a DIYer so projects like this are occasional for me, nevertheless it went well. Ours was a refit job rather than new install. Product write-ups mention "Flex Z Fast" bracket; it is a good design. The Instructions are fair and are available online. The text was written by a non-native English speaker so they are hard to follow. I can't attest to the Spanish version. The diagrams are too small and require studying. A company fan as big as Panasonic should hire a tech writer for 1 day to cleanup the text. Nevertheless I was able to decipher the instructions. The box separates from the adapter onto which the wiring and duct attach. Because of that, it is possible to do the wiring in the room rather than the cramped attic space. You will need access to the ceiling joists to fasten the bracket and to tape the unit to the exhaust duct. The unit is quiet! The exhaust speed is settable. There is a 5 second delay after applying power to the fan. The light is bright enough, but I wish it were a tad brighter. The night light is a nice feature. I highly recommend this unit and will probably install additional units to replace our existing ones. As for longevity, for me, it's too soon to say but this is a quality product, worth the additional cost compared to its competitors.

                                  Quiet fan with easy install.
                                  Very impressed with this bathroom fan. The install was easy enough even for only a semi-skilled homeowner such as myself. It's very quite but still moves the air around extremely well on the medium setting. Light seems bright enough to me as well. I would definitely recommend this fan/light combo.

                                  Make sure you have provisions for wiring to switches for all 3 functions. Very happy with low noise level at 80 cfm. and light brightness for both the primary and night light.
