Bath Fan Replacement Not Always Necessary


bath fanA customer called and said that he bought a foreclosed house. One of the many items wrong was that the bath exhaust fan didn't work. After many questions, I learned that the fan and light are operated by a single switch. So, when the light switch is turned on, the exhaust fan comes on with it. A bath fan replacement is not always necessary, so try to isolate the problem.

Many people get frustrated with the amount of noise these inexpensive fans can make. Consequently they want to quite the noise by unplugging them. It's just that simple. So, if you are suffering from a lack of ventilation in your bathroom, you might just check to make sure the fan is still plugged into the outlet in the ceiling. Just pull down the plastic cover and follow the motor's cord to see if it is still plugged in.

If the motor is pluggin in and it still doesn't work, test the outlet to make sure the motor is getting power. If the outlet is getting power, but the motor still won't run, replace the motor. If the outlet is not getting power, you will have to track down the source of the problem. It may be that the outlet is bad or that a wire is not connected.
