Yep. You need to figure out where that water is coming from and correct it. Water causes damage and promotes mold growth.

Great reply Jim F, and NOT to mention WATER AND ELECTRIC don't get along together.I would NOT USE THE EXHAUST.If you are a DIY'r then post some pix.Lots of qualified people here to help.But until you get this fixed, DO NOT USE THE EXHAUST.

If you have easy access to it in the attic, check to see if it is flex ducting, which traps condensation easily and could drain down and out the fan exhaust port. Before this, pull the grill cover off or down (while the fan is off) and look carefully to see to source of the water. Either inside the ducting or outside and on the fan box or outside ducting.... A picture would help....

I too had the similiar problem. I climbed into the attic and found that they had use uninsulated flex pipe, which was covered with "blown" insulation, however one section that rose up over the joist was bare and exposed to the cold. I wrapped that section with pink insulation and had no further problems.
