Bathroom exhaust fans: fix or replace?
This is one of the worst I’ve seen. And it was actually still running.
It took a little bit to get up to speed. So to speak.
And I’m fairly certain it wasn’t doing much in the way of moving or exhausting air.
What do you think?
To get to this.
There is a motor with a impeller type blower wheel there. Really!
And once the above was removed, this is what we get to.
So now some elbow grease, and several other devices to scrape out dirt and
dust and we’re here.
Next, the blower wheel goes in. Except this time you can see it.
Some bathroom exhaust fans use a squirrel cage type blower wheel.
And finally, after also lubricating the motor, the grill cover goes back on and we’re all done.
