The picture shown has more of a crown to it vs. mine which has a flat metal screen with a light in the middle. I will check with plumbers and see it there is greater detail in what they show in the diagram.

While I concur with an upgrade to a newer model, are there any models which you would recommend as reliable, efficient and fitting into the current ceiling opening with a minimum of renovation to the existing opening?

Expert:  Bill replied 7 years ago.

there will be no closer fit tothe the original than this one,

i have not changed one as old as yours, but on some that were 10 years old

i was able to use the original housing in the ceiling and install all of the parts inside from a newer unitLaughing

On your last answer, you referred to "this one" and I couldn't see if there was a direct referrence to a specific manufacture and model. Please pass on and I will sign off.
