SOURCE: trying to uninstall a Nutone 8663NLP ceiling

Hi, Yes the fan box enclosure is either nailed or screwed to the joist on one end. Typically, the enclosure has a couple (2) mounting tabs that extend past the ends of the metal box about 1 inches. That is where the fasteners (either nails or screws) that mount the box to the joist.

The easiest way to get the fan off, without tearing up the ceiling drywall, etc. is to use either a hacksaw blade in a handle that lets you extend the blade past the tool so you can saw through the fasteners on each side.

The other option is to use a Reciprocating electric saw (Sawzall type) with a bi-metal blade to do the same thing, cut through the fasteners.

My advice for both ways to cut off the nails or screws, is to put the saw straight up with the blade facing in towards the fan enclosure at an angle of about 30-45 degrees so you're cutting inwards, toward the rest of the fan.

By doing the cutting this way, if you should happen to slip, you won't risk cutting into the ceiling outside the fan/light opening. Just a little trick to save on drywall repairs to minimize the chance of damage.

Make sure that the power is off to the fan/light before trying to remove the enclosure so you don't have to worry about nicking the wires above the ceiling while removing the metal enclosure.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Hi. The most likly cause of this type problem is the thermostat. Check the thermostat housing is it hot to the touch, is it close to a heat soarse, suchas, a motor or flu pipe for a water heater. If the thermostat has a adjustable heat range setting try setting it to the lowest setting if this shuts the unit off the calibration of the unit may not be set right. If the unit is new this should be covered under warranty.

91 Mercedes 300 E has R12 ac system that is no longer blowing cold. A faint bit of cool air sometimes shows up but it can hardly be called cool. Is there any additive out there compatible with R12?

Propane does the same as R12. I don't recommend it though(highly volatile). Best to convert to 134R. Last time I converted an R12 system was about 10 years ago. I would tell you how to do it, but I could get in trouble because you have to vent out the R12 first. I don't even know of a shop that has an R12 unit anymore. Good for you, they still have the adapters to go over your ports and the 134R today is compatible with the old systems oil. No need to change the compressor, dryer, and expansion valve.

Can I connect two bathroom fan ducts to a single roof vent?

No, both cannot be connected to same vent.
Or vent exhause from 1 fan will vent into other bathroom.
All house vents require separate duct.

I have a Nu Tone LS80SE bath fan that died. It is an obsolete fan with no more support. Is there a current fan replacement that doesn't require major modifications to my duct already in place? I just...

I had the LS-80SE and it appears that that model is discontinued, including the replacement motor. I ended up replacing it with the QTN110E, which is a bit bigger. The QTN is designed to mount to a joist on the opposite side of the LS model, I avoided having to do that by just screwing through the metal body into the joist that the LS was mounted to instead of using the mounting holes that are provided on the QTN. You will end up having to remove a small amount of drywall approx 1"x 11.5" to fit the QTN in. Put a backing strip or piece of plywood up and behind the drywall so that you have something to screw the filler piece of drywall in to when you do your repair, mud the cracks, sand, texture if need be... hope that helps

Attic fans

I just fixed a Broan-353 with a similar problem - the fan was short-cycling, turning on and off within a minute or less.

These fans have a thermostat which is designed to turn off 10 degrees below where it's set to turn on. Apparently, one failure mode is this temperature delta stops working I've had this happen twice, each time after about 3 years.

Replacement thermostats are available from Broan for about $30 It's a 10 minute repair if you have easy access to the fan.
