You can use Rubbing Alcohol and a Q-Tip.
or
You can take that one out and install one of their RSK Series Backdraft Dampers.
They work very well and they are not expensive.
They can be purchased at http://www.hvacquick.com or http://www.rewci.com

Note: RSK4 is 4", RSK5 is 5" and so on.

Exhaust Fan does not work


Motors are divided into many categories. Most bathroom fans use a shaded pole motor (having a transformer on one side, a laminated yoke and 2 circles of copper shorting around the laminations to create a north and south pole) Another type is a compound wound motor (having brushes) A third type is an induction motor. the rotor of the motor is a series of laminations where a magnetic frequency in the stator windings induce magnetism in the rotor and they repel each other. A squirrel cage capacitor start induction run has a large capacitor on the side.
You can not mix and match what you want from one motor style to another motor style. If you have a brush type motor, perhaps the commutator needs cleaning and the commutator could be shorted with metal filings. The brushes may have failed and needs replacing. The bearings may have seized and the windings heated up blowing the thermal cutoff just under the tape of the windings. The windings may have burned through the varnish that coats the wires on the start winding (on motors with a centrifugal switch only) Centrifugal switches can fail to open or close. Only someone knowledgeable with motors can tell you what you have and what the problem is. It is far cheaper to replace a motor with a similar one on inexpensive devices such as a bathroom fan. A new fan may be cheaper than getting a new motor.

My bathroom heater shuts off after it's on for less than a minute. After a 10 minute wait, a click can be heard and it can be restarted. But only for another 45 seconds


The click sound is the thermostat. It closed and the allows power to the fan heater. The thermostat is faulty and won't allow you to select a higher heat setting.

Have a broan n688 ceiling exhaust fan in bathroom and now it takes a couple of minutes to actually start, finally making a whirring noise before coming on. Solution?


First turn the power to the fan OFF. Take it down from the ceiling by removing the screws holding the cover on. Then remove the screws holding it to the ceiling. Then unscrew the screw caps that twist (connect) the wires from fan motor to the house wiring. Do a general clean up on the fan. Use an old paint brush to get in the hard to get at places. Rotate the fan by hand. If it does not rotate freely, put some oil on the shaft where it goes into the motor, and put some on where the shaft comes out the back. If it still does not rotate freely, buy a replacement and install it.
