Fantastic Fan 7350 Upgrade

Has anyone done an installation video of an upgrade from the standard Fantastic Fan to the model 7350? I've searched YouTube and this forum but can't find one that goes through the actual process of upgrading the unit. All the videos are of full replacements, not just the interior housing upgrade and wiring.


The problem is the instructions that came with the upgraded unit are really pathetic. They reference connecting the fan motor lead to a red and blue wire on the upgraded unit, but there is NO blue and red wire anywhere on this unit - there's one orange wire and all the other wires are black or white. They provide tiny photos that are absolutely useless (I tried searching online for these instructions to no avail, hoping I could zoom in to see what the heck they are talking about, but no luck).

Thanks - I actually had read your post, which is how I got the idea to upgrade my unit.

I'm no electrical genius, so my question is which wire on the upgrade unit does the red fan motor lead connect to. The instructions refer to a red and blue striped wire on the upgrade kit, but there is no red and blue striped wire - the only colored wire is an orange one that along with a white wire goes to the main circuit board (see Upgrade Unit pic).

The upgraded unit also has a black wire and a white wire that lead from the circuit board to the fuse holder. There are a black wire and white wire on the "old" panel (see View of Assembly pic) the upgrade kit covers and they go into the ceiling of the AS (the white wire from the ceiling has 2 connectors).

I'd call their Customer Support, but naturally it's the weekend.

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I figured it out - it's the orange wire (red and blue stripes make orange).
