            Q:Where can I get a replacement grill cover for this fan?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Go online and look for replacement covers for this fan number. I found quite a few, but they were the old style, which is a yellow-ivory color. I wanted white, so I wound up buying new fans which only have the white color. I did not find a site where Nutone themselves sells parts.

            by|May 4, 2023

            A:  To order the replacement grille and/or lens cover, contact us direct at 888-336-3948. Our Customer Service Department can assist you. Please have the model number when you call. If you have this version of the 769RL, the part numbers are as follows: grille: s99111380; lens: s99111381. Thank you.

                  Q:can i replace the motor inside with a quieter one?

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  No. The fan assemblies are riveted or spot welded to the can. Besides, to get a quieter fan, you have to decrease the CFM ("Cubic Feet per Minute" of air movement), defeating the purpose of the fan.

                  by|Feb 12, 2019

                  A:  You cannot replace the motor for the 769RL with a quieter one. If you wish to have a quieter exhaust fan, you will have to replace the entire unit, housing and all.

                    Q:How do I replace light bulb?
                    by|Nov 27, 2016
                    2 Answers
                    Answer This Question

                    A:  You basically pull it out the way you inserted it. It is hard to do, and it is really easy to break the bulb by hitting it against the side of the housing. Hopefully they will change something when they come out with a newer version.

                    by|May 4, 2023

                      A:  This unit has a snap-in type lens cover. Be sure the light is OFF. To remove the lens so you can change the bulb, follow these instructions . . . the plastic lens as two tabs on the side. You will need a flat head screw driver or a butter knife to gently push it in so is can drop down. Use some caution here, as you do NOT want to drop the cover. This will expose the bulb/socket. Change the bulb. Gently snap the cover back into place. If you have questions, dial 888-336-3948 and our Customer Service Department can assist you.

                        Q:Is there a difference between the 769RL and 769RL "B" unit?

                        A:  The “B” on this unit indicates the blower assembly. They are both 769RL’s.

                          A:  Much wider than the original ceiling vent fan. We took the motor out of the new fam to replace the old motor from the old fan.

                            A:  John, you can use a vacuum cleaner hose and vacuum it off, then maybe wipe it down with a damp cloth.

                            by|May 4, 2023

                              A:  To clean this unit, remove the light lens from the grille assembly. Once you remove the light lens, remove the light bulb. There will be a nut in the reflector assembly that, when removed, will free the grille and reflector assembly. You can now clean the dust and dirt from the grille and also clean inside the housing of the unit. If you need further assistance, please contact Technical Support at 1-888-336-6151.

                                A:  The opaque lens cover pops out, giving access to the bulb

                                by|May 5, 2023

                                  A:  The only thing you will have to remove is the lens cover. The lens is a snap in cover. It has two plastic tabs. Use a flat head screw driver or a butter knife to do this step. Simply slip the screw driver/knife in between the grille and lens. Very gently push in a little and it will pop out of the tab. Use caution here . . . you don't want to drop the lens! This will expose the bulb so it can be replaced. IF you have further questions, just give us a call at 888-336-3948. Thank you.
