Trouble installing the grille/lens assembly to the exhaust fan

I installed a NuTone 8663RP ventilation fan in my bathroom and now I'm trying to attache the grille/lens assembly, but I can't push the mounting springs through the slots because it is flush with the sheetrock and theres no room for the springs to go up in and then expand into place. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

It is really easy to change the motor yourself. It is about a 15 minute job. You just need to find your model number and then you can buy the complete motor assembly. https://www.centralvacuumstores.com/model_number_help.php

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how do I replace the bulb in my Nutone Model

It will, you just need to pull harder! Seriously. The whole cover/grill/globe pulls straight down to expose the bulbs. There are two heavy "V" springs, one opposite the other, that hold the grill to the fan box. You need to overcome the holding power of these two springs to pull the grill down. If necessary, you may want to run around the edge with a sharp knife in the event it was painted in place.

Should the bathroom fan light turn clockwise or counterclockwise


Which direction are the fan blade setup to exhaust the air out of the room? That is the direction it would spin, as this is not designed to pull air into the room.

My model 8663RP "B"-Unit Combination


It sounds like the fan blade may be loose on the motor shaft. You can purchase a new motor for this fan online.

Save yourself the grief and buy a new fan. Either replace the whole unit or take the fan from the new unit and install it in the old fan chassis. It will be a lot less painful than trying to troubleshoot the old unit.
