Remove the one screw and unplug it and it falls into your hands. Then off to the local hardware store.

Properly made they should never catch fire...but theyare not always properly made. I have scars.

Thanks for bringing this up. I'm going to make an effort to change ours over the weekend. I notice that it has gotten noisier.

I did this in my bathroom. The one that was there died. Once I figured it out, very easy. The one issue I had was that the first upgrade kit I got was defective, and had to go back. I made a point of checking the second one in Home Despot, and managed to gouge my finger on some of the sharp sheet steel, and bled like a stuck pig though Home Despot, and the follow on trip to Costco.

Works fine now.

It's not hard in most situations to just change the whole unit out, although most of the time, the store bought retrofit motor usually works.

I prefer to just go the extra step and install the higher line blower powered units, the little basic ones are only around 50 cfm and are noisy.

Replacing the whole unit can turn into a sheetrock and paint project. There's nothing mechanical in the casing, and the only electrical is a outlet for the fan motor. All the guts are in the fan plate, which is what the upgrade replaces (along with the plastic cover. And the upgrade kit includes a better fan and motor.

I don't have a fan in bathroom, I have windows. Plus, it's so dry here in Vegas, I don't even get steam when I shower, and towels are dried on the rack in an hour.

We have a choice of automatic or heated dry on our dishwasher. I never use the heated dry. If you have something that drops down on the heating element that is plastic, you could end up with a fire. I also never run appliances like washers, dryers, vents, dishwashers, etc. unless I am home. I don't understand anyone leaving a crockpot on and going to work or shopping either. Common sense is a good thing when using electrical appliances.
