Nutone true vintage exhaust fan covers — New Old Stock stash discovered

nutone exhaust fan covers vintageNeed or want a true vintage metal exhaust fan cover? They don’t make ’em anymore, but sometimes they come up on ebay — like in this nice stash of New Old Stock, in two sizes. What a pretty picture all that NOS makes! Disclosure: Linky-loos earn me a wee commission if ya buy; cha-ching goes into the law school fund. Here are the links to the listings:

    I did not know these were sought after. I have Nutone ceiling heaters with these covers in both bathrooms of my 1969 ranch, and a Nutone range hood with a cover like this. The vent knob is missing from the hood, and we are a bit leery of using the heaters since they are electric coils like on a gas range, but I like the way they look.

    I’m having trouble finding the stainless vent pipe that comes out of the top of the stove (O’Keefe & Merritt) and then connects up into the vent hood. So it’s that kind of flattened oblong (not round) vent pipe about 6″ wide. Since I can’t find one, all of the oven heat just rises out of the back of the stove top, blasts up right underneath my spice cabinet and really heats up the kitchen. I would dearly love to have an original one rather than having one custom made.

    I’ve always loved those when i found them in a house, they also seem to be more efficient that a standard hood at keeping the steam out of my face and off my glasses – the only problem is the oven has to be on an exterior wall for them to work and they may mess up your design 😉

    stupid question. Vent fan covers? Are these for the kitchen or are they for heater vents in the house?

      Looking at my bath exhaust fan from the 80’s without any cover on I see a post in the center of it that the center of the cover screws into. One of these covers would surely fit and cover the square opening in the ceiling even though the original cover was square and had a light. I think if the fan unit has this center post to attach a cover to and the opening is small enough one of these will work with it.
