Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by It failed in a month, but keep reading... Within a moth of operation the motor failed. Until then the unit operated as promised and did a great job of cooling the house (we live in Hawaii). After noticing the unit wasn't operating I called customer service which transferred me over to Trish in the tech department. She assessed the problem to be the motor. The new motor was back ordered until 8/1 and I received it on 8/4. I've yet to get up on the roof and install it, but I'm confident it will do the trick. I'll let you know. But the purpose of this revue is to commend the Broan team on their excellent customer service. I didn't have to send copies of my receipt, go up on the roof to pull the old motor out and pay to send it to them, or pay shipping on the new motor... no hassles at all! (In spite of the complex legalese in their warranty) I was treated with respect and they stand behind their product. This is the way customer service should be! Thanks, Trish, and the crew at Broan!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful fan. Almost perfect product... This fan was a straightforward, simple install. It can move some serious air when the heat hits hard (100+ in my area)! I immediately noticed a big difference in my 1949 home. Unfortunately, after running for about two months, the fan stopped working because the bracing holding the motor got loose. The motor slid downward to the point where the fan blades started hitting the braces that attach the hood to the base. Eventually the fan blades got lodged against the bracing and the fan stopped moving. Luckily the motor did not burn out and I was able to shove in a couple of wedges and tie wraps to prevent this from happening again (see picture). This fan does run pretty hard so my guess is that the bracing wasn't tight enough coming from the factory. Other than that little issue, this is a great fan. A bit pricey for my taste but it's a simple DIY so it's worth the price. July 20, 2016
