Can you use LED light bulbs?

Asked by: helpplease
Substitution of a self-ballasted Compact Florescent Lamp (CFL) or Light Emitting Diode (LED) for an incandescent bulb can be done if some critical guidelines are followed. Even by following these guidelines, the bulb may still have shorter than expected life or reduced light performance as not all bulbs are created equal. Please visit our website and view the FAQ for the specific information about substituting LED bulbs.

How do I remove/replace the fan motor on my 679 RL "B'

Asked by: Rick
Thanks for your question. The model number your supplied is 679RL-B. We have had a 679 model, but I suspect your model is 769RL. You will need to double check the model number. If you have the 769RL, here is how to expose the inside of the unit. First, remove/snap out the lens cover. Next, remove the light bulb. You will see a screw that holds the aluminum reflector in place. Remove the screw and this will drop the reflector. Use caution here, as you will need to be aware of the light socket. Once all this is removed, the mounting plate needs to come out. If you have concerns about removing the rest of the parts, call our Technical Support Department at 888-336-6151. Thanks.

how to get the vent cover off?

need to clean the vent/light but cannot remove the cover would want to know the same to change light bulb Please advise Thanks
Asked by: Becky
The vent cover is only held in place by the plastic tabs. To remove the lens, you should use a flat head screw driver or a butter knife. Turn the light and fan OFF. Slip the tool in between the lens and the grille and very, very gently push inward, just enough so the plastic tab comes out of the slot. Be prepared, as you don’t want the lens to drop and hit the floor. This will expose the light and reflector. If you need to clean the inside, remove the bulb, remove the acorn nut that holds the reflector, and gently push the light socket through the hole and drop the reflector. This will expose the inside. If you have further questions, dial 888-336-6151 and speak with our Technical Support Department. Thank you.

70 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Fan with Light is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from not meant to last this unit came with my house and i soon realized that the fan is loud enough to barely hear music playing off of my phone while in the shower. also the light for it is expensive and our 3rd light just burned out within 2 years. i would highly discourage anyone from buying this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is lame Product burns out bulbs all the time. No worth buying.
Date published: 2013-03-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product does the job The plastic cover keeps breaking where it fits into the slot. I got a replacement one under warranty but I only removed it one time and there is already a crack that keeps growing. This cover will be garbage soon too. They wanted me to check the light bulb wattage and it is within the recommended wattage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed in this product. I had the fan fixture installed and it is quiet, I must say that. However, after about 6 months use, the light will intermittently shut off. I must let it sit for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. There is no timing as to when it will decide to shut off. Sometimes it's 6 minutes, sometimes 10 minutes. Needless to say, it makes my morning showers quite interesting. I have had several people look at it and it totally baffles them. Unfortunately, I was unable to return it within the warrantee period due to a life changing event, so I will replace it with something else as soon as I am able.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap and NOISY Why would anyone want a very loud fan? Sure, it is cheap and people want to try it due to price. After installation, it is so loud, you wish you had NEVER HEARD OF BROAN and gone with something better. The plastic cover resonates, metal pings, and noise STATES CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisey Installed three of these units in less than three months in 2012. One in a 3/4 bath as a replacement in my own home and two in bathroom remodels for clients. All three are noisey and rattle. They have all been dissassembled and I have had to install sticky felt pads through out to rectify the problem. Not quite sure I understand because I have used Broan products for years in many new homes and remodels and have never had a problem, but these seem to be suffering from an engineering problem. FYI-If your going to install a bath fan in any bathroom, DO NOT install anything less than a 70 cfm. I don't care how small the bath is or what the manufacturers say. Spend the extra money and get a good quality one, trust me. I still am a big Broan fan, we have had great success with their products, just not this one. I

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Balance of Quiet White Noise This fan replaced an older model bathroom exhaust fan which was significantly noisier. This fan, has just the right balance of what I call a "Quiet White Noise". In other words, it has just enough noise so you know its on and covers any sounds that you may not want heard.
