Question about Broan-NuTone Designer 721 Ceiling Fan

Open Question

Nautilus 162-d bathroom ceiling fan is similar to current broan 9417dn. Apparently I need to replace the motor (suspect bearings are shot in the shaft) but three different motors (Broan 97010254, 99080145, 89224) seem to "Almost" be the right one. How do I figure out which one to use on this older fan?

SOURCE: Noisey 8 x8 Broan Bathroom Exhaust Fan (With Light) (7 years old)

Mine was doing the same thing. I found it was coated with dust.

I took the blower out [unplugged it, and removed the single screw holding it to the box], took the face plate off [removed 4 or five screws] brushed the squirrel-cage fan blades using a narrow, long and stiff bristled brush, and reassembled it [used care to align the small plastic axle on the flap valve ] and reinstalled it. The vibration was greatly lessened and the fan was about as quiet as it had ever been.

SOURCE: 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.

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 have a thermador bathroom ceiling heater fan. Where can I get a replacement?


Amazon.com: bathroom ceiling heater Broan Product Detail

If you have the old Thermador ceiling type of heater that must be mounted on the ceiling surface there aren't many choices. Only the Broan-Nutone 154 & 157 models. The 154 @ $37 didn't seem to last too long but it's 1/3 the price of the radiant 157 model at about $100+ dollars. The radiant model may last longer

My bathroom fan was barely running when now it doesn't run at all,


Hi, W/D here.
These fan motors are fairly rugged, but they do give out sometimes. I have to change them out occasionally, and here's what I do: If the unit is presentable, I don't want to change out the entire unit, just the damaged part. The fans come in a variety of sizes (the ceiling box part, that is) and it is difficult to find one that fits in the same cutout. I unplug the fan from the receptacle in the ceiling box and remove the motor and mounting bracket. I buy the economy version of the fan, or the motor replacement kit at Lowe's/similar, and mount the new motor and fan blade in the old bracket and reinstall. Total cost is ~ $20.
Best regards, --W/D--
