Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Every winter water drips from my bathroom ceiling mounted extractor fan, worse when there is bad condensation. The vent goes straight up and up through the loft space and out of the roof, there appears to be a cover to this vent. This morning the extractor fan blew up, blowing the fuses upstairs. Just wonder what my options are, seal off roof, put elbow or something in vent ? Just replacing fan is not going to work. Thank you.

Condensation is created by 2 exteme temperature change.
looks like the loft space is colder than the rest of the house.
first make sure there is not blockage in the vent. then warp the vent with fiberglass as much as you can. it doesn't matter what R value the fiberglass is. just enough to cut the temperture change.
you still going to need a exhust fan in the bathroom.

I suppose the answer depends on where the water is coming from: bathroom steam, leaking water pipe, or from outside the house.

Nutone bath fan how do you clean the vent


Usually the vent cover pulls straight down, and is held in place with 2 V-shaped metal spring wires.
Squeeze each spring wire together to release cover from ceiling box.
Use vacuum to clean vent fan housing. Some vent fans can be disassembled and motor housing removed for cleaning. Do NOT use water on electric motor. Simple vacuum, or dry toothbrush cleaning is good enough.
Spay tiny bit of WD40 on the fan motor shaft or add tiny dab of white grease if desired.
The plastic cover can be scrubbed with soap and water, rinse to remove soap residue, and when dry, paint with aerosol spray paint using 3-5 very light coats applied in 5 minute intervals.

On some Bathroom extractor fans there is a setting for the amount of time you want the fan to stay on after you turn off the switch, the setting dial is normally at the back of the fan so you need to take the fan down from the ceiling making sure the fan is electrically isolated.

My bathroom fan will not turn itself off, it is connected to the bathroom light, light is turned off but fan goes continuiously??????


Then it is not connected to the light switch as you think. This could be a dangerous situation, and you should have an experienced electrician look at it.

Some water condensations around bath fan


THATS GONNA HAPPEN WITH THE HUMIDITY IN THE BATHROOM AND THE TEMP DIFFERENCE. TRY INSULATING THE DUCT WORK FOR THE VENT. INSTALL A FLAPPER SIMILAR TO WHAT A CLOTHES DRYER HAS. U DON'T WANT COLD AIR COMING IN. INSTALL A DEHUMIDIFIER.

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!


Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.

My extractor fan is leaking a lot of water, it is nothing to do with the weather as it happens when it is not raining. The extractor fan was working but now has stopped


sounds like
the extractor is mounted in a cold space, and the moist air is condensing on the cold fan as it exits,
the fan housing may need better insulation, and the flap valve in the exhaust pipe needs to be checked to ensure it is closing, and keeping cold air out
it is possible that condensate in the fan has fried the motor

something to check

Wireing a bathroom extractor fan to a three switch (fan=landing light=offswitch0


yes, if the three switches are all made together, then there is only one feed. sounds like a bad switch, or possibly bad exhaust fan. check voltage at fan with switch on, if not qualified, be careful, or call an electrician

Moisture on bathroom exhause vent


the fan is pulling too many cfm (cubic feet per minute).you can replace the switch of the fan with a potentiometer type switch (this works like a light dimmer)you can reduce the speed of the fan,or you can use a couple of synthetic fiber filters to trap the condensation.good luck
