    Oven noise fix

    Hello, everyone! I've been experiencing a problem that I initially thought was related to the fan at the back of my oven. However, I've now realized it's not that fan causing the issue.

    Which kitchen extractor fan?

    Hi all, We're having a new kitchen extractor fan installed - it'll be just above and to the side of the cooker, venting directly through a wall, approx half a metre thick, to the outside.

    Bathroom through-wall extract fan

    Apologies, if not the correct forum but couldn’t find one more appropriate, I am replacing our 4” extract bathroom and notice that both the original and new fans don’t fit flush onto the tiles because they fit into a downwards facing pipe fitted through the wall.

    Trianco TRG45 gravity feed boiler fan removal

    I really do feel a bit stupid asking this but I can't work out how to get the fan out of my boiler for cleaning - it seems to be held in with three pins, and on a base of cast metal. I've twisted it, lifted it, pulled it, hit it - what am I missing? Cheers

    Standard 6AMP Pull Cord Switch as Fan Isolator?

    I've been trying to get around to replacing the old bathroom in-line ducted extractor fan in the loft with a new run-on version as the one up there currently is next to useless.
