    Need Close Bend 6" Elbow ??

    Is there such a thing as a close bend 6" round duct elbow? I installed a Panasonic bathroom fan and the 6" duct is obstructed by a piece of romex with no play in it. I've heard of them in 4" Would I need to go to a supply house?

    Interesting.
    Can't say I've seen such an elbow.
    Give us a few more details, there has got to be a way around this.

    I've never heard of one either.
    Might have to add/move the wiring.
    What about aluminum flex pipe?

    The bottom of the 6" outlet from the fan is very close to the inside of the ceiling sheetrock. I went into the attic and stepped on the wire (after trying to do it the right way) and got a little more slack. I think it will go in now. Anyway these Panasonic fans are a much better quality than what they carry in the big box stores, I just went a little too big not realizing that the outlet increased from 4" to 6". Maybe I'm thinking of a dryer vent duct but I could swear that they made close bend elbows.
