My ancient 1960s bathroom fan (a NuTone 8832) stopped working. I removed the cover and fan, but the "metal box" assembly is still in the ceiling. I'm not sure how to get it out.
Here's the unit, with the cover and fan removed:
What I've tried:
- undo all exposed screws. didn't help.
- look for a way to tilt or pry a piece of it down. no luck there either.
Any ideas how to get this box out of my ceiling? I bought a new fan unit, but I need to get the old one out before I can install the new one! :)
