Type of review

So my 15 year old fan was an 8814, NOT an 8814R. The new mounting plate will fit into the case, but the cut out for the 2 pin connector will NOT fit. You will need to widen the cutout by half an inch with metal scissors as others have suggested. Instead I transferred all the new parts to the old existing mounting plate. (requires 9mm socket wrench). If you move parts, you need to change the rubber damper. The new damper serves two purposes: it reduces vibration and acts as a cushion to prevent…

I had to change it, very loud vibration but it works.

Ordered to replace a 27 year old Nutone fan motor. The piece of sheet metal on which the new motor will be mounted is the right size to fit in the existing box. Set the screw hole lines. The item is declared as a replacement for several different models, including mine. I had to cut enough metal with scissors to fit two sockets in the fan box. No big deal but be careful. About 20 minutes work. Having made the rectangular hole for the outlet about half a centimeter longer, the replacement hasn't

Fits almost, prepare to cut metal

As other reviewers have pointed out, some older models that are being replaced appear to have slightly different cutout sizes that fit into a 2 pin duplex socket fit. Decided to share some photos side by side. In my original setup (stamped "NUTONE, FOR USE WITH MODELS 8814, 8663, 8673") the cutout starts at 59mm on the inside left side when viewed as shown in the photo. In the new assembly, the cut-out starts 64.5 mm from the left side. The assembly will not snap into place as is as the outlet…

Almost perfect replacement part for the original

This was a replacement for a 30 year old fan that eventually died. I didn't want to replace the whole unit, box and bracket because of the labor. Instead it just snapped into the original ceiling box and I didn't have to change anything. It's rated at 3.5 Sona, which is quieter than average, and a 100 CFM flow rate, which is above average -- even higher than some of the newer models. It uses a plastic squirrel cage as a fan, so it's pretty quiet. There are quieter fans and fans with higher flow

Not as good as others. I replaced

. I have not installed any of these motor/fan replacements in Nutone and have been very happy so far. This exchange went smoothly, as did the others, but I need to investigate further as the performance is poor. The motor is very noisy, not only the venting, which can be noisy, and the lack of vibration, but also the rather loud hum of the electric motor, which is more in line with a much more powerful motor. Originally 18 years old, the fan motor was quiet but began to vibrate over time. In…

  • . Lots of positive vibes.
  • . No power.

Great replacement fan assembly for Nutone Scovill Model 8814

When the exhaust fan died in our bathroom I thought I was out of luck as the product is easily over 25 years old. I replaced the fan assembly many years ago after finding it at my local electronics store (before the internet!). Since the electronics store is no longer open, I drove to Revane to check. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to find what I needed. The metal of the model I was trying to replace has "Nutone Scovill Model 8814, 115/120V, 60Hz, 0.7A" printed on it. The…
