How to remove the fantastic fan casing?

Hey guys,

We just purchased a New Rockwood Roo 233s and I was told that we should get a maxair vent cover. The salesmen told me that it only requires a few screws to install the maxair vent cover. When I went to install the vent cover, I could not figure out how to remove the fan and the inner casing to drill holes into the frame. My question is how do you remove the inner casing of the actual fan so you can drill holes into the frame? Please explain detail by detail. Thanks in advance!

A couple thoughts..... Maxair has excellent tech support and pretty good online printable
directions. Have you checked their website??
2nd- they make a cover specifically for the fantastic fan. Did you buy that one?

I've put 2 maxxair covers on my vents. One was similar to a fantastic fan. I don't
recall having to remove anything.
Seems like I just cranked the vent cap up and drilled 4 holes around the edges of the curb in order to
screw on the 4 little angle brackets. It was 4 years ago so memory is a bit vague but
I'm pretty sure it was that easy.
Maybe others can be more helpful.

I had one installed and the tech was on the roof all of 3 minutes. He used self tapping screws. Had I known it was that easy I would have did it myself!

I would skip using the bolt and nuts that came with the cover and just use self-taping screws. That's what I did and as done in 10mins. If u use the nuts and bolts, I see where the fan has to come out to have access to the nuts.

Thank you all for your suggestions! The self-taping screws, no issues of the max vent blowing away?

I will look into calling the dealership where I got the max vent cover and ask them again for some more suggestions.

Cheers All

I suggest contacting the seller - you may not have the correct part for the Fan-Tastic Fan as this Video for the install shows the install with an existing Fan-Tastic Fan ()
