Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ThatDave Exact replacement
My old exhaust fan's vent fan had given up the ghost, despite the fact that the heater fan and light worked just fine. This was an exact replacement for the original, including the sound level which could be lower.

Was thrilled to find a direct replacement for the 1978 installation. No attic time for the 3. Just swapped them. The originals still running but, covers worn and craching. Hope the replacements last at long as the oriiginals.

This product was selected because it was an identical replacement for my old heater/fan/light. That meant that I could use the old housing which meant I didn't have to do any fitting, The entire process of switching the internal components took less than fifteen minutes.
The original failed because the heater fan motor seized up and the grille melted. That had been repaired and except for the grill, I have a spare unit.
The plug-in wire connections made wiring a cinch and the simple component fastening also made the repair easy.

I could not fit this model into existing area. i have had a model 650 installed for 30 plus years and still working. I am trying to locate the cover for the unit. Don Lyskawa was of great help with this problem. Where can i find the unit cover for the 650? Broan makes a product that is still working well after all these years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DUDE64 PRETTY GOOD HEAT, VENT AND LIGHTING ESPECIALLY WITH AND LED BULB INSTALLED IN IT.
THIS UNIT DOES A VERY GOOD JOB IN ALL ASPECTS. THE ONLY THING I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT IT IS HOW LOUD IT IS WHEN IT IS IN THE HEATING MODE. STARTING UP IT RATTLES THE PICTURES ON THE WALLS.... IMAGINE HAVING A CROP DUSTER CRANKING UP IT'S ENGINE IN YOUR BATHROOM!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bob654321 gets noisier and louder till it is unbearable
I am on my fourth heater unit and second fan motor since purchasing this unit 3 years ago. Plan on replacing something at least once a year if you own one of these. These units gradually gets noisier and louder till it is unbearable in just a few months of use. I took one of the heater motors apart to see why it failed.. The motor bearing on the side to the squirrel cage fan had become so loose from the constant vibration that it would spin around with the motor shaft and it no longer offered any support to the squirrel cage fan that was free to wobble to the point that the armature of the motor would rub and cause the motor to slow down. Since it cost almost as much for a replacement heater motor as a new complete unit I am now looking to buy a third new unit for spare parts. Once you install one of these you are looking at a major job to remove it and go with a better unit, so I would recommend that you pay the extra and get a good one to start with! I wish I could give a zero stat or even a minus star for this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Broan-Nutone bathroom heat , light, fan
Noisey but after a while too noisey. 70 cf needs to be quieter than a loud TV. Replacement of the fan or the the heater is the adventure I am going on. Home Depot and Grainer do not have replacement fans. If Grainer does it's web site doesn't let me find it. Air fan motor and squirrel cage and metal housing should be an easy replacement and NOT have to install new with all the hassle of electric (for both heater and air fans) and connect to outside vent. This product saves heating the entire apartment in the morning, vent fan is on a timer so it keeps the mold in the bathroom at a minimum and the light is the lowest of wattage which saves electric an early am headache of too much light to see one's way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tszig2004 good value for the price
It was a little harder to install because we were replacing an old fan, so I had to do a lot of rewiring and drywalling.
