My Nutone 8814R motor went out on my ceiling fan and i just ordered a new motor. My question is how do i take out the old one and replace it with the new one. Will it be easy to do myself? Also is there an...
The good news is that this is a relatively easy item to remove and replace, as they make a replacement fan/motor unit (sub assembly) that you can swap out for the old one.
All you need to do is pull down on the trim vent plate and then squeeze the wire retainer clips together to remove the grill/trim.
Once you've done that, you can unplug the fan portion of the exhaust fan unit from the base enclosure. Now simply remove the screw or nut that holds the fan and mounting plate into the enclosure and simply pull it down and pivot it out of the enclosure - you might have to push in on the side of the enclosure where you removed the screw/nut to get the fan and metal plate out of the cabinet.
The replacement fans usually come with a new metal mounting plate that fits many of the older exhaust fans, but if your's looks different or doesn't work, you can remove the fan and install just the fan motore onto your old metal fan mounting plate.
Instructions are typically included in the replacement unit packages. This is also very simple to do with only 2 screws holding the fan onto the mounting plate.
Once you're done, simply hook the edge of the plate back into the fan enclosure and then push it up and fasten the mounting screw/nut onto the plate and plug the fan into the ceiling enclosure and replace the grill plate and you're all set!
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
