They have opening clips on the top side all around the cover, you can reach it with your fingers and try opening them all, the cover will come off easily, once done you can unscrew the light bulb and install a new one.

    While he is technically accurate, to be more clear, it is the center cover, not the whole cover, which has the clips. As in, the clearish plastic part the light shines through. To release the clips, you simply push inwards on the sides, then the cover pulls down.

    The clips on my light were not visible but when I used a thin blade screwdriver on the ring holding the globe (glass dome) it moved easily and I could see how it would open. It opened like a recessed light with spring clips. If only I could put a picture or diagram on here it would explain itself. Good luck.

    Thanks ViperLancer. Please allow me to again point out "It is the CENTER cover...the clearish plastic part the light shines through" that you push inward.

    These instructions worked perfectly for us, especially the comments that it is the center translucent cover which has the clips. Now it's a piece of cake to change the bulb.

  • Rick Ducharme Aug 17, 2013

    Thanks for the tip. As mentioned bycgh1, it is the translucent cover which is removed. I used a small screwdriver and found the clips on the left and right side of the cover. After releasing one, the cover dropped down.

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.

To replace a bulb I pulled down on the diffuser, expecting the tension wires to be holding it up. After forcing it down, it broke off and there are no wires. I have three more bathrooms with the same...

I have the same fan and it is a pain to replace bulbs. There are two "V" shaped springs that hold the diffuser in place on mine. I pull the diffuser down until the springs (actually heavy gauge rods) are fully extended, maybe 4-6 inches. I then tip the diffuser and get my hand in to remove and then replace the bulbs. If your units were "altered" by someone forcing them in the past, you may have bigger problems. The springs are hard to bend to get the diffuser down and the upper part of the springs actually rub on the metal housing of the fan. Perhaps a little WD40 where the springs enter the metal housing will help a bit.

We have a Broan/Nutone 763RLN Ceiling Fan/Light in need of cleani

The grille is held in place by the reflector. The reflector is hidden by the the lens. The first step is to remove the lens, then you will remove the light bulb. You will see one wing nut above the light socket. If you unscrew that the reflector and the grille should come down. The replacement motor assembly for the 763 RLN is the S0503B000, if you are looking for a little more power you could also purchase the S0504B000

How do I change the light bulb and/or night light for my NuTone bathroom Fan-Light Model 8663RP?

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.

How do you access the light on a broan fan/heater/light? This is a ceiling unit in a bathroom. It is a vent fan/heater/light combo.

Gently pull down, work it down slowly these tend to get dry over time and crack, If you do not see any exposed screws it is the basic pull down type. Not to insult your knowledge but make sure the fan is not on when you do this because the blades will be exposed.

Broan square bathroom fan light combo, no screws - how do I change the bulb?

The entire vent panel and light lens is held up against the ceiling by two spring clips mounted on 2 sides of the panel.

To find which two sides they are one, (they're opposite of each other), just pull on one side with your finger tips and when you see the wire spring clips, just pull down on the two sides where they are so you can get to the bulb socket.

The panel will pull down about 5-6 inches you can then either get at the light bulb, or lift up the light lens to clean it and get the bulb out.

Be sure to replace the bulb with the proper wattage bulb so you don't overheat and melt the lens in the unit.

When you're done, all you do is push up gently on each side to get the panel back in place. You might have to squeeze the wire retaining clips to get them back in, but they'll go back OK.

If you want to completely remove the cover panel, you just squeeze the retaining wire clips nearest the fan enclosure on each side and that will let you take it all the way off for cleaning, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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.
