SredniV has it right. Just pull downward on the bezel. You'll feel that there are two points on opposite sides that are hang from springs. The legs of the spring are squeezed together, and together they are inserted into a short slot, where they spread open as the bezel is lifted up toward the fixture. Once you pull the bezel down far enough so that you can ...

We have a fan like that. The external body pulls straight down a couple inches and hangs on a pair of wire, spring-like supports. From there, you can access the light bulb and a bit of the fan. I haven't done it, but from there, I would assume you can remove the fan and get a look at the vent pipe. For us, the alternative would be to attempt to access ...

You could cut a large rectangular hole from the outside and then put a 90 degree turn in the vent pipe upwards before exiting the exterior. The void in the exterior surface would be filled with a piece of wood, like a light mounting block.

You have not mentioned the size of the joist. If it is 2 x 10 or larger I don't see a problem (heck, 2 x 8 might even be fine). The band joist (I call it the rim joist) is primarily for providing an attachment point for the floor joists and for holding the floor joists plumb and true. The load of the wall and structure above is distributed across the bottom ...

Pull the cover: inspect the fan to see if it is full of lint or debris, you may simply need to clean it. While you're there: Get the model number of the fan and verify that it has the correct CFM for the size bathroom it is installed in. If it is under rated, consider replacing the fan with one that is more powerful; some decent fans start as low as 50$ ...

One possible solution would be to insulate the exhaust. Any exhaust termination that exceeds the envelope of the house more than 2' is required to be insulated by code so prevent freezing from happening. Another problem may be that the pipe is not sloped back to the appliance, and there may be an elbow that holds condensate water and freezes during the off ...

A few things to check: Check for any obstructions Is there lint stuck in the vent? -Turn the dryer on and go outside, do you feel the air coming out? Does the flap open? If not, try and open the flap manually and visually inspect. The flap should open freely, if there is any resistance this could be part of the problem. -Disconnect the hose attached to ...

Your dryer manufacturer will have specifications for maximum vent line length, including max distances depending on type and size of vent and how many turns. It is very important that you: - use rigid rather than flexible line whenever possible - minimize elbows and turns - make it as short of a run as you can (never exceed manufacturer's max) It is not ...

The concept of a whole house fan is two fold. One is to bring in the cool evening air, the second is to flush out the hot air that is trapped in the attic. Your attic should already be vented enough to allow the incoming air a place to push the hot air out. If you where to make an opening for the fan to vent it, the cool air will just travel straight to ...
