    Hi there,

    Thought I'd post this here before I go ahead trying to hire someone, when it's something I can do myself. My bathroom extractor has packed up (seemingly). Very limited knowledge of electronics so don't want to start taking things apart. I can't tell if this piece of material is jammed in the fan in the attic and don't want to remove it and potentially start breaking things. Cleaned out the two vents in both bathrooms and both were well clogged with dust. Could someone advise me on how to proceed?

    Kind regards,
    R W-M

    isolate supply. unclip ducting from fan, if you can access the fan blades see if they're free ( using a thin driver). if they are free, restore power and switch fan on, see if it runs or not.

    Dismantle and remove the entire extractor assembly, clean it, reassemble it.

    Strictly speaking, it's bathroom work so you need a qualified sparky. Either way, make sure it has a 3 pole isolation switch. If doesn't, then you will need a sparky to isolate it before you go poking your fingers in it.
