Exhaust fans come in various styles, shapes, and features. Some are solo exhaust fans, while the most popular ones are a solid combination of light and fan.
If you have an exhaust fan with a light, you will have to change the light bulb when it burns out, starts flickering, or gets dim.
Changing the light bulb in a bathroom exhaust fan is an effortless task and does not require more than twenty minutes.
To remove or replace a light bulb, all you have to do is uncover the exhaust fan and replace the light bulb.
Let me take you through the steps of this process for better understanding:
Step 1: Cut off the electricity supply
Like every time, your first step will be to turn down the main power supply because your life is worth a lot more than a bathroom exhaust light bulb.
Now that you have cut all sources of electricity let’s move on to the next step.
Step 2: Remove the cover of the exhaust fan
If you have to change the fan blades or the light bulb of your bathroom exhaust fan, removing the cover is always necessary.
We have already discussed how to remove the bathroom exhaust fan cover, and if you haven’t read that article yet, now is the time.
To remove the exhaust fan cover, check for any screws holding the cover to the fan’s body.
If there are any screws, rotate them anticlockwise to unscrew the cover. If no screws are present, check for clips.
You can squeeze the cover inwards and then slide it out through the clips. Either way, your cover will be removed, exposing the exhaust fan and light bulb.
Step 3: Remove the old light bulb
In this step, you will have to remove your old light bulb, and that is why step one was so important.
You can remove the light bulb by simply rotating it counterclockwise till it loosens up and leaves its grip.
Step 4: Add a new light bulb
When you look for a new light bulb for your bathroom exhaust fan, always remember to purchase the one with similar wattage and size, so it fits well inside the exhaust fan.
Once you have the new light bulb, push it inside the bulb holder in your exhaust fan and rotate it clockwise to its maximum limit.
Step 5: Put the cover back and turn on the electricity supply
Great news, you have successfully replaced your exhaust fan light bulb.
To finish the task, put back the cover in the same manner you took it out. Turn on the electricity supply and check if your new light bulb is shining bright. I am sure it is!
We have accomplished yet another task today! I hope to support you with my experience and research all the time.
