Replacing Bathroom Ceiling Exhaust Fan

After living in my house for a year, I just had to change the bathroom ceiling fan. It was just too noisy, non-functioning, old, dirty, and ugly looking. I disconnected the wiring, pulled it out, wifey help me clean it up, and connected the new one in.

That was a quick post! I wish I was a DIY master, like you seem to be!

I’m having a problem trying to remove the unit. There are no bolts when I removed the cover. We’ve been in the house less then a year. Wondering how they got this in to begin with. Tried pulling and tugging, but it just won’t come out. We were going to go through the attic area but when we popped the attic slide the whole area is covered in insulation. Really hate to go above. Is there an easier way to pull it out without causing ceiling damage?

Hey Judy, Sorry to reply so late as I was away for over two weeks. Try to look on the sides of the unit; specifically the sides next to the wood beams. I’m assuming the unit is slabbed right against the beam; there might be a few screws attaching the unit to the wood beam. When I replaced mine, I found that to be the case. It is much easier to do the removal from the top, since the wiring is easier to access (for me at least). I didn’t have any insulation in-between, so it was easy access for me. There shouldn’t be insulation above the unit, perhaps the airflow is going off to the side of the unit? I hope this helps, please let me know how it goes…
