If you are not very handy I don't think I'd tackle this project. There's going to be drywall cutting, backing to install, attic crawling, wiring, ducting to attach, proper insulating. As an electrician I've done this sort of thing in between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how smooth things go. If you find somebody you trust that's done it before who is willing do to it on the side for cash you're looking at $25-$60 for labor. Is it worth it to you?

The Panasonic fan (or fan light) can be installed from the finished side without attic access. The fan will detach from the electrical and duct connector allowing you to slide the blower housing into the ceiling hole. Then screw the flange to the ceiling. Usually we put 3/4" plywood above the rock to screw into.

As far as quality and noise Panasonic wins hands down. The only noise you will get is if the vent is restricted.

I do not see how to get at the lightbulb in my Panasonic Whisper Fan/light. I can not see any way to open the cover where the light is. What is the procedure?


Hi, I searched the web for answer and finally got it from the installation manuel. You have to take the whole cover off, not just the cover for the light. Below is the website for the installation manuel. ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/pub/Panasonic/business/building-products/ventilation-systems/pdf/install/08VFL2-E.pdf

The answer is on P.13-14.

My panasonic fan has been working fine for the last 4 years. now, it seems to have trouble starting up... when i flip the switch on, it seems to start and re-start itself, turning itself on for 2 - 3...


Sounds like it could be a loose or intermittent wire either in the fan itself or in the wall switch. I would start with the wall switch to see if the main power line into the switch for both the fan and light is loose. Turn the circuit breaker off for that circuit, remove the wall plate to the switch and pull the switch out of the box to examine the wires. It could also be a loose wire in the switch box that would be part of a wire splice. Tighten the wire nuts. If that does not fix the problem, a look inside the power box of the fan might be necessary to examine the wire connections there.

Our new bathroom fan is not clearing the room the ceiling is wet and the paint peeling the fan is model #FV-LP003


I use to be a chimney sweep. One of my jobs was to clean vents for dryers and bath vents. What could be your problem is that you have a bird nest in the vent system. It sounds to me that you have a vent on the roof for the fan. A bird could have damaged the cap to gain entrance and built a nest. With the cap gone, rain can come in. With the nest, it will not vent out the room. You could call your local chimney sweep company and they will clean it for you. Or if you are capable, Lowe's or Home Depot sell dryer vent cleaning rods. They are sturdy but flexible rods with a 4" brush on the end. Two other handy tools will be a high power shop vac to **** out anything from inside the vent, and a high power blower that has vacuum capability to use out side the house. Cafe full though, if it pulls out a nest, it will shoot it out with great force.
