Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?

I'd like to replace an old bathroom fan with one that has a nightlight in it. But, I'm guessing that the wiring for the fan only will not operate both the fan and a light, unless there is such a thing as a high tech switch that can operate both with basic wiring. Am I right?

How do I remove the cover to replace the light bulbs on a Round Nautilus brand bathroom exhaust fan from the 1980's.

Most exhaust fan covers use a spring steel wire in a V shaped configuration. The bottom of the V is attached to the cover. There is a slot in the fan housing and by pinching the tops of the V togetherand insert them in the slots the spring pressure pulls the cover up tight to the ceiling.Carefully pulling the cover down enough to reach over the cover and pinch thewires together should allow the cover to be removed. Hope this helps.

I'm trying to install this Woods 59008 automatic fan timer in the bathroom. My old on/off switch only has three wires....and I that a light switch next to that. The woods 59008 has a red, black, white...

Sure George.

These in-wall timers have extra wire to operate the electronics located inside timer.
You said your old switch has 3 wires.
The new timer can only replace on-off switch that has 2 brass screws and a green screw.
If old switch has 2 brass screws and a dark screw, that is a 3-way switch.
Typically a 3-way switch is found at both ends of hallway.
The Woods 95008 countdown timer is not made to replace 3-way:

Here's what to do:
1) Switch has 2 wires (plus bare ground wire). Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
2) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires. This wire will power timer electronics.
3) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and push override button located below the OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

How do i hook up a two function swith i have white black and ground going to the fan and the light and anther white black and ground coming from my bathroom light i want to have a switch to turn my...

Ok you only have two switches, so you would use one switch for your bathroom light, and the other for both the fan and the light, the light will come on when you turn the fan on.Connect the incoming black (hot) wire to both switches. Then connect the black wire to the switch you want for your light. Connect the other black to the second switch that goes to your fan and light. Connect the three white wires together (neutral) Connect all ground wires together, and leave a pigtail to connect to the ground terminal on the light switch. If you want separate switches for light in the fan and fan, you will need another conductor and a three gang switch.

Wiring comination 2 switch, with exisiting light to new bath fan

Hello anonymous,

I am concerned in so many ways... (USA NEC assumed):
FIRST concern:
(after the obvious BATHROOM/GFCI issue) is the
NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE for wire/device capacity
INSIDE your existing ELECTRIC box...

The CODE requires wires to have space ... aside
from the fact that it is just plain dangerous to
pack wires densely and pack them together tightly...

Then... of course... You have said nothing about the wire gauge/ampacity... (again assuming 14 Gauge/15 Amp)... you will have to calculate the fill for each wire and check the Cubic Inches Plus your device against the ELECTRICAL BOX rated capacity...

That is just the BASICs of SAFETY.

Looking for a diagram of your
"1595" Legrand Pass & Seymour I have failed miserably.

I have found what YOUR switch looks like...

From an old electrician's standpoint...
If you have EACH device wire separately thru
their respective switches...

There should be NO POWER to operate the FAN.

The FACT that there is ... Is highly PROBLEMATICE.

It would seem that a PREVIOUS ELECTRICIAN
has switched the NEUTRAL side of your
old light circuit... Easy to prove with a VOLT TESTER.

I Recommend KLIEN NCVT (non-contact volt tester)
Klein Tools NCVT 1 Non Contact Voltage Tester Electrical Tools Amazon com

poses an EXTREME hazard in a bathroom
(any water) location but is EASY to fix...

Rip it ALL apart and properly configure all the EXISTING WIRES...

Do it right... Be safe.

Replace motor in Broan 678 bathroom fan

I ran into the same problem, Lowe's carries Broan exhaust vents. They had both a replacement motor for all generations of 678 fans for $18, and they also had the latest generation of the complete unit for $40. I bought the complete unit, which included the fan I needed. Just unbolted it from the new bracket and bolted it to the old one. The new light housing, trim piece, and lens also interchanged. The existing one was old and yellowed, so this made for a huge improvement. All done from in the living space as well.

Bathroom exhaust fan 16 years old and noisy. How to fix?

One drop of 30 wt oil at each bearing will quiet the thing for a while, but you will eventually want to replace it. Also consider the whole fan is about the same cost as the motor, and easier to find.

Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?

Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).
