I need some help with my frozen bathroom vent (outside flapper is frozen shut). We've had cold weather before (last night it was -2F) and this has never happened.

The bathroom vent goes through the attic and vents out the wall (gable wall?). The duct is insulated.

Any ideas?

Try a hairdryer or heat gun.

We've got a warm spell coming in a couple of days (rain...so much for a white Christmas in New England!) so it should open again soon. I'm just surprised that it locked up and was wondering if there was something I should do to keep this problem from happening again.

I'm encouraged by Grumpy's statement that this is uncommon...hopefully it doesn't happen again.
