Bath fans vary in design, but motor replacement requires the same basic steps, no matter which brand or model you have. Turn off the power to the fan at the main breaker panel. Then unplug the fan and remove the motor plate (Photo 2). Some motor plates release by pressing or prying on the side of the fan housing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you replace just the fan in a bathroom exhaust?
"No cut" or roomside bathroom fan models can be installed in new construction or used to replace older fans in existing construction. Simply remove the old fan, attach the new housing, hook up the ductwork and wiring, and you're done.
