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.

Old NuTone 9093n Model replacement.?


Hi -- I just spent a couple of days taking out the old assembly, cleaning all the parts (layers of dust coats) and putting the 9093N back in order to fix the noisy fan. The cold air coming back in is from to the heating and I'd guess the heating element is busted. Yes, you can run it in both airflow modes: ceiling air exhaust and hot air blown to the floor. That said, the noise level on mine hasn't gone down. So I'll look for the replacement assembly. Good luck!

The bathroom exhaust fan in our bungalow is leaking this past week every few days , we are not handy folks and so we are wondering what type of professional do we call in to deal with this leak and...


Sounds like the issue is simply condensation inside the exhaust pipe where it passes through the un-heated attic space. If you use the shower and the exhaust fan, lots of humid air is passing over the inside surface of a very cold duct, then running back down to your bathroom ceiling. You could get any non-specialist handyman to wrap insulation around that duct in the attic. But you can mitigate the problem by running the fan for a few minutes before you start the shower (thereby pre-heating the duct before you give it a blast of moist air) , and leaving it run for 20 minutes afterwards (thereby drying out the duct after use). Regarding the discolored ceiling, the handyman can apply some stain-covering white primer too.

Switch up or down for winter use?


I'm not sure that the manufacturers are consistent on which way to mount the switch (many are mounted sideways).

For summer, you want the wind to blow down on you. Hold a strip of paper in your hand and see which way it goes.

For winter, you want the wind to blow upwards. This will push against the ceiling, forcing the warm air to circulate down to the floor level.

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

New bathroom venting in basement bathroom.


Install a window mounted exhaust fan if you can discharge to the outside of the house surrounding atmosphere.But undercut the door of the batroom to allow air coming in into the room.Alternatively firt a door grill 600 x 150 mm size which is more expensive.THe size of the fan should be 50 to 100 l/s of air flow.

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
