Question about Panasonic FV-05VQ3 WhisperCeiling Fan

1 Answer

Odors are backing into the bathroom after installing the whiperfit

We removed the exsisting nutone fan and replaced it with the Panasonic whisperfit. We are getting odors in the bathroom when the fan is on and also when it's off. I poured smoke underneath the fan to see what direction the air was moving and indeed the smoke traveled out however, it seems that not all of the air is moving out sum of it backs up into the bathroom. Can anyone help?

    I recently installed a fan in the bathroom. When it is off, there is no air coming in, however when i turn it on, it seems like half the air comes back down. I have checked and the flap is working fine, things seem to be connected ok. Any suggestions?

Try to install the fan at a lower height so that it can drive out all the smoke. This is because the fan can driveout air with in a certain radius and installing it at a lower height increases it..

FAN DOES NOT GO ON AND CAN THE FAN MOTOR JUST BE CHANGED WITHOUT REPLACING THE COMPLETE UNIT ??


Yes and maybe.
If you open unit, usually fan motor is plugged in, and motor is removable with bolts.
The problem is finding new fan that fits same housing without spot-welding and drilling.
I did google image search for "replacement vent fan motors" and results show choices.
For example Nutone:
http://nutoneproducts.typepad.com/nutone-products/nutone-bath-fans/page/2/
If you can locate same brand vent at local box store, you can use parts from new one to repair old one without project of replacing fan housing.

20 years ago, motors went to electric repair shop and they rewound the motor.
But today, motors are landfilled or shipped overseas for recycling.
All costs are energy, and right now, cost of re-wind is more than buying new motor, or new vent.

A Bryant 3 way independent rocker switch with red, black and white wires for 3 lights in bathroom one switch not working can i replace it with a Broan Nutone P66V three function control


397bfdd.jpgLeviton triple switch
fe442eb.jpgNutone P66V

Nutone looks like an ordinary three-switch combo being marketed as a bathroom 'fan switch.'
The screws on the device would tell the story.

Look at the Leviton screws:
The switch has dark-colored screw on one side >> the hot from breaker always connects to dark screws.
Other side of switch has 3 silver-colored screws, but these can be brass colored screws > the wires to fan light and heater connect to each of these screws.

Most likely the Nutone switch is identical to the Leviton
I say this because the descriptor on Amazon describes it as a 'fan' switch.
It's being marketed as a bathroom fan-light combo switch >>> so it looks like an ordinary three-combo switch

How to replace a motor on a nutone model 8663P bathroom exhaust fan


The motor assembly is held in place with tabs and possibly one screw. Remove the light assembly and once you get to the fan itself, unplug it, and push the side of the unit outward to release the tabs. You push the fan assembly up while pushing out on the side. If you look closely you can see the slots where the tabs go. There may or may not be a screw holding it in place. After you release one side, then rotate the fan assembly down and out.

How do u remove the cover to change the bulbs on panasonic whisper-fit low-pro?


The cover is gently pulled down.
It only comes down so far, as it's held up by springs.

There are four springs. Two on each side. To gain more clearance on one side to replace the bulb/s, you disconnect the end of two springs on one side.
After the bulb/s are changed out, reconnect the springs, ease the cover back into position.

Installation of a Panasonic Fan FV-05VFL2...


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?
