Remodeling, decor and home improvement for mid century and vintage homes
Hot item! You know how much I love these!
I had this model vent fan in my 1949 home. There was a long inside chain for you to pull the outside vent door closed during the winter.
This very model is over my kitchen stove. It’s original to my 1957 ranch. Still works like a champ.
Yep, I have this one, too, original in my 1955 ranch. Also have the original Nutone hood. Both are still operating like they were brand new.
I did email Braun-Nutone to inquire if these year models could still be repaired and the answer was yes.
i’m looking for a chrome nutone (or other brand) fan for my kitchen wall. just like the one you posted…can’t find one. the newer models are white/plastic.
beamergirl – give R&I Enterprises a call – they may have some of the last stock for the BRUSHED ALUMINUM covers (which were just discontinued by Nutone): http://www.rinutonedistr.com/
Alternatively – you’re going to have to watch ebay. I am doing some more research on this topic and have some additional new sources to spotlight. Check back – I will aim for a post next week.
please tell me where I can buy this fan for my mothers house, hers cannot be fixed.
Jackie, you can get these from Nutone.
I have been trying to find if people still collect and (or) use nutone stainless steel range hoods and nutone exhaust fans. I have been remodeling my 1958 ranch home and i just hate to throw these away because they do work good yet. If anyone is interested please let me know.
Jeremy, all buying/selling onto the Forum, please: http://retrorenovation.com/forum … I would also suggest craigslist.
