Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ziggy Excellent and very easy
Our house was built in 1994 and our bathroom fan was so loud when I saw this replacement fan I figured I would try it. If no good I would send back well to my surprise it was so easy when I was done I check everything to make sure I installed it correct. Very quiet and moves the air better then older fan thank you for making this fan kit for us D.I.Y. people didn't want to have to go in attic and replace the whole unit.

When they say easy to install that's just what they say. It took me more time to clean the housing before installing the new unit. A flat tip screw driver really help in the taking out the old unit to release the tab. Baring getting the ladder, screw drive and taking the new unit out of the box it took me 10-to-15 minutes to install the new fan and mounting plate. It is much quitter at least 50% and does clear the steam much better then then the old one. The motor magnate's are twice the size of the old one and the fan is much bigger with at least 5 times more blades. I took a paper towel and it was held to the fan when turn on, excellent product, !!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fanny01 Absolutely Perfect
My old bath fan died. Since it was over 30 years old, I was concerned that I would not be able to replace the fan without having to tear out the old fan housing from the ceiling and reinstalling a new one with all the attendant mess involved in that. This part was absolutely perfect. It fit within the old fan housing. It was very easy to install and by virtue of the fact that it uses a drum to move the air rather than a conventional fan blade, it is quieter and moves more air than the old fan assembly did. With the new fan escutcheon, the fan looks brand new. The kit far exceeded expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a60490guy If your fan housing looks like this photo, this is your upgrade!
If your existing empty housing looks like the attached, then this kit will likely fit your housing.
The box says that this unit will replace the following fans:
NuTone 693, 695, 696N
Broan 671, 688, 689
Nautilus N671, N688

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by canuk99 Good option for older weak fans
I checked the sound level with a meter and it was indeed much quieter, not as certain that the volume was increased. But nice to have the option instead of opening op the ceiling to fix a weak unit. Liked it some much I got a second one for the other floor.

Our ancient Nutone 696N fan finally died. It is over 15 years old. This "upgrade" kit is so utterly simple to use. It comes with two different mounting plates which accommodate a variety of models. All you have to do is match your plate type, screw the motor assembly to that plate with the two nuts provided, and pop this assembly into your existing housing (of course you have to pull out your old fan assembly). The whole process, including reading the excellent instructions, took all of 10 minutes. The fan is quiet and has better coverage than my older fan. The grille cover is better looking than most and looks upgraded. I was so thrilled with the design of this kit that I immediately ordered 3 more to replace all the other bathroom exhaust fans in my home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jawarrior A Bonafide "No-Brainer"!
Rather than having to crawl into my cramped, floorless, insulation-filled attic to rip out and completely replace my failed Nutone 695 bath exhaust fan, I stumbled across this excellent kit. I'm 60 years old and not in the best physical condition, so the option of doing an improvement/replacement from inside the bathroom really appealed to me.
I found that Home Depot's price was the best and, with its being so close by, I paid online and picked it up - all within a total of 4 hours! The installation itself went so smoothly and quickly that I could hardly believe it. Home repairs NEVER seem to go this well - EVER!! But it did, and the new, improved and quieter unit was running within 1 hour of returning home from my trip to the Depot!
The kit's noise level is way quieter than the original Nutone 695 - 3.0 somes vs. 6.0 somes. The included upscale-looking replacement appearance vent cover really dresses it up nicely. The kit is rated for 60 cfm air flow, compared with the original fan's rating of 70 cfm. The small loss of air flow was a minor negative when you stop to consider the savings, quietness and ease of replacement it affords.
If this kit is compatible with your bath exhaust fan (there are several), then consider this choice to be a bonafide no-brainer!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CNYDIY Good replacement Fan
This is a great product for those looking to replace an existing fan. The motor on our old one went bad and I was glad to find this product available.
Note that I had to order it online - I previously was able to pick up in store but it doesn't seem to be stocked anymore.
Installation is very straightforward. Remove the old van, select the correct plate, install the motor and scroll fan housing into the place and place into the existing opening. Plug in the wire and put the grill on. Installation took maybe 5 minutes total after I was done cleaning the housing with all the old dirt and dust that had accumulated.
