Ever noticed the fan on the ceiling just above the potty? It’s called a bathroom fan or more accurately, an exhaust fan. The purpose is to pull out the air as you do your thing so bad odors are eliminated. Basically, it sucks air in from the bathroom and then blows it through a vent.
Like any other machines with moving parts, bathroom fans are also subject to wear and tear. There will come a time when the motor will become noisy or the whole fan will just stop working. When that happens, you will need to have the fan repaired or buy a new one, then replace it.
You can hire a professional electrician to have the bathroom fan replaced for you, but if you want to save a few bucks, you may want to do it on your own. This DIY tutorial video will teach you how to do just that. In easy, step-by-step instructions, the author will show you how you can replace your broken bathroom fan.
