Photo 2: Take out the old fan
Make sure the wall switch for the fan is turned off. Either remove
the screw that holds the fan in place or push out on the metal fan
housing to release the tab holding the fan. Then simply pull the
fan down and unplug it.
If your bath fan is noisy or just doesn't seem to move
enough air, there's an easy fix that doesn't require any new
wiring, venting or ceiling patching. Nutone's No. 690NT
Bath Fan Upgrade Kit ($30 to $40 at home centers or online)
fits several models of Nutone, Broan and Nautilus fans.
You'll find the model number of your fan stamped on the
metal plate that the fan motor is attached to. To see if your
fan can be upgraded, go to nutone.com
and type “690NT”
into the search box. The Web page lists model numbers and
shows photos of the compatible fans.
