Bathroom Fan removal

First post on Forum & I am sure someone has performed this task. Need to removebathroom fan as it was destroyed in hail storm. Removed inner ring and top cover, now removed 6 or so screws into roof. Does the fan just pull out from outside? I have removed sealant from around ring but its still stuck....HELP. THEN is there a preferred replacement fan or buy whatever dealer has in stock. Thanks in advance - Reno

Welcome to the forums! Do you have a picture of the fan in question? That'll let others identify exactly what fan type you're talking about. For example, is it a 6" round vent fan or something else?

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

First off, welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

Yes, photos would be helpful as so many different fans have been used over the years, and the one you are trying to remove may not be the original.

I just replaced mine on a '79. See the message thread started by me on this forum.

It sounds like you are talking about the 6" round fan. It can be replaced with a VentLine VanAir fan easlily enough. Since you removed the screws up on the roof, it is just a matter of breaking all the vulkem loose and then it will pull off from the outside.

I slid a putty knife in under the base flange and tapped it around the edge with a hammer. A pretty easy job. I took some photos and can post them if you are interested.
