    Extractor Fan

    Hi all,

    I currently have an expelair GXC6 fitted in my bathroom. The pull cord actuator has broken on this and the fan has become exteremely noisy. I would also like to change this and go for a lower profile extractor fan. The current hole diameter for the vent is 203mm according to the specification. I am finding it difficult to find an extractor fan with such a diameter. My quetion is that if I replace this fan with another model, does it matter if the required hole diameter of the new fan is smaller, as long as the overall fan covers the 203mm diameter ?

    hope the above makes sense,

    Many thanks.
