Hey guys

I’m attaching a picture of my bathroom extractor fan. It’s located in my wardrobe in its own box and is halfway between the bathroom and outside.

This is a Manrose MF100 and as you can see doesn’t fit well at all. I’m guessing this is why it doesn’t work very well to clear steam from the bathroom. :dunno: :dunno:

Any suggestions? :help: :help:

Is there enough ducting to be able to rotate the fan 90 degrees and had a more gentler bend o the ducting so it isn't constricted like it is? Thai will improve the airflow

Unfortunately that’s as good as I can get it - I can’t get the piping to run any less bent :help:

What is sitting above it? can it not sit above the bathroom?
I would also consider changing the ducting, or at least take it off and look inside ( :mrgreen: ) it should be reasonably clear.
Also check both vents, the one in the bathroom and the one outside. I clear ours about twice a year, they do get dirty and too much dirt causes slow air movement.
Try holding a sheet of toilet paper on the bathroom vent, after I clean ours the paper will stick there (ok its being sucked up) before I clean it the paper moves but wont stick

Hi Someone-else

So sitting above the plasterboard is just a very small cavity up to the concrete floor of the next floor up. The gap above is only like 10-15cm.

Any help much appreciated :help: :help:

Too small to fit the whole fan in then :cb

All I can suggest is reduce the pipe length and make any bends as wide as possible, no 90 degree bends.

The pipe on the left looks like it has lots of surplus pipe, I am wondering can you remove any or most of it, the less distance the air has to travel the better.
Also have you checked the "vents" are they clear?
