There are many reasons you may have to want to replace your Bathroom Fan.  Your current fan may have broken, it may be too loud, or maybe you have just remodeled your bathroom and the old one just doesn't fit with the rest of your decor anymore.  Whatever the reason, it is important to remember that replacing your Bathroom Fan is not as hard as you might think.  In fact it can be done in a few simple steps.

How to Replace It

By following these simple steps you will be able to save yourself the money it would cost to have someone else come do it for you.

1. Before buying a new Bathroom Fan, be sure to know the measurements required for your new fan.

2. For safety, be sure to turn off the power leading to the Bathroom Fan.

3. Remove the blower assembly from the housing, using a screwdriver to disengage the tabs.

4. Remove the wire paneling screw and remove the wire panel.

5. Installing the Mounting Frame:  Put the mounting frame through the opening in your ceiling, secure one side with screws.

6.  Installing the Housing:  Pull wire through, into the housing, and finish inserting the housing into the opening and secure with screws.

7. Pull ducting into the housing and attach the duct connector to the ducting.  Secure with screws.

Replacing Your Range Hood Filters

30 Inch Stainless Steel Chimney Range Hood. Buy now at Home Products Inc.

Why Replace the Filter?

One of the many modern conveniences we take for granted is the Range Hood.  Range Hoods keep the air in your kitchen clean (which keeps the kitchen itself cleaner), gets rid of excess heat, and can even improve the resale value of your house.  Because they are large, difficult to install, and can be expensive, we at Store For Parts believe that maintenance is key to keeping your current Range Hood working for years to come and saving you time, money, and hassle along the way.  We recommend cleaning your Range Hood regularly and changing the filters every 6 to 12 months.

Which Filter for Me?

Rectangle Charcoal Filter

There are many different types of filters you can buy for your Range Hood.  There are Rectangle Filters, Round Filters, Dome Filters, Basket Filters, and Filters with Light Lenses.

You also want to take into consideration which type of Filter to use.  In ductless Range Hoods, the air is sucked through the fan, through the filter, and back into the room.  There are two types of filter to concider.  The first is a charcoal filter.  Charcoal filters perform better at removing oils, odor, and smoke from the air, but they are hard to clean so you must replace them more often.  The second is an aluminum filter.  Aluminum filters are less effective at removing oils, odor, and smoke from the air, but are fairly easy to clean which means you can go longer between new filters as long as you regularly clean them.
Aluminum Filter with Lens

Before buying new filters, make sure to check which style and size of filter your Range Hood uses.  The easiest way to do so would be to check the model number of your Range Hood, which can usually be found on the underside of the Hood, and go to to find the best filter for you!

Broan 353s. Get em' while its hot.

Did you know?

Modern building codes require unoccupied attics to be ventilated to reduce the accumulation of heat and moisture that contribute to mold growth and decay of wood rafters and ceiling joists. One common code requirement is that the total area of attic vents be equal to or greater than 1/150 of the floor area of the attic, with 50% or more of the vent area located in the upper portion of the attic. Various types of turbine ventilators and exhaust fans can also be used to assist with attic ventilation and decrease the required area of passive ventilators.

Keeping your attic cool is critical to keeping your house cool. That is a fact. However, keeping your attic cool is easier said than done. Heat from the attic will find a way into your house like clockwork. Creeping into your insulation and living space, attic heat will make your A/C run longer and harder for extended periods of time. Properly vented attics save money, add longer life to your roof, and removing toxic and damaging molds. During the summer, attics can reach staggering high temperatures (like in the 150 degree range staggering) So what do you do?

Grab a Broan 353 Attic Fan. The high performance and low cost has moved it to our best selling summer product so far. Bonus points - the Broan 353 has scored a total of 0 complaints from our customers. While solar powered fans have trouble with mother nature, these don't rely on the sun to run. The simplicity and cost of the 353 is top shelf. So find out how much you could be saving by properly ventilating this summer. Click the links below to get started.

Most of them even come equipped with an automatic thermostat that will  turn on the fan when the attic reaches a certain temperature. Keep cool for free

3. Clean or replace your old Nutone 391 bags. Seriously I cannot even begin to tell you how many of you love buying these (and we love selling them) but for the first month a bag is in a simple clean should suffice. After that, yeah you should definitely change it.

0696B000 or 8632000

To motor only, or to buy the assembly. That is the question. Well, here is the answer. We very much so recommend the 0696B000 as opposed to buying just the motor only 86322000. Why is that? Many reasons actually. Believe it or not, the entire assembly is much easier to install than just the motor only.The 0696B000 assembly is quieter and far more reliable than the motor only. The highly highly popular QT110s and QT100s were installed everywhere and more often than not need a replacement motor regularly. If you are needed a new motor, buying the assembly will save you money in the long run. I cannot stress that enough. Also grab a new grille for your older QT fan by clicking the link---> here <---
So if you're on the hunt for a new motor, grab the assembly instead. Your bathroom and its guests will thank you.

The assembly works with the following NuTone/Broan models:

Choosing an electrician.

Hello! Many of you have ordered parts but often pondered - "now how in the heck am I supposed to install this?" And that is more than okay. To be fair, 97% of us lack knowledge on an intercoms, bathroom fans, and central vacuums. So you plan to hire an electrician, but cant figure out whats fair and not in the world of hiring help. Here are some tips to help you find a quality hand to enter your home and offer aid.

Keep in mind there are many different contractors out there that have varied experience and knowledge so be sure to ask and ask again to make sure everyone is on the same page. Google will undoubtedly be your best friend here. Look for a website, yelp reviews, or anything else you can unearth on said contractor. If your man has wronged someone in the past, then there most certainly will be information regarding it. Always compare estimates for the job so you get a ballpark figure of what your going to be spending. Get an early sense of your electricians grasp of what exactly he knows, as many can bluff their way to getting knee deep into something they know nothing about. Ask someone who has used him before. Even in this age of having an abundance of knowledge at our fingertips, word of mouth is still a powerful tool.

So there you have it. Make sure to review everything before hiring help! It could save you from quick and painless to tiresome and frustrating. Hope this helps! Good luck DIYers.

StoreForParts Tip of The Week - Bathroom Fan Maintenance.

Bathroom Fan Maintenance, an oft-overlooked project until its too late. For those of you with extra time on your hands, here is a quick 30 minute project to ensure years of trouble-free operation with your bathroom fan.

Built up dirt in your bathroom fan can strain the motor leading to its eventual demise. For a quick solution, turn off the power to your Bathroom Fan and simply remove the grille. From there, if possible, you can carefully brush off excess dust on the motor and fan blade. If it is impossible, unplug and unscrew the motor from the mount it sits on and take it down. It is also recommended to add oil where the shaft and motor meet on each side of the motor. Doing this will help your motor run smoother and quieter. Place the motor back into the fan and screw it back on the mount and voila! One clean and quieter motor.
