Customer Questions & Answers

Will the upgrade provide silent or minimum noise when running?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, very noticeable noise level drop. My original contractor grade fan in my bathroom had a Sone rating of 6. This fan is rated at 3. I could hear my old fan through a closed door. Not the new one. Night and day difference. I am glad I found this unit.

Is there a replacement/upgrade kit available for fans that are 8" x 8 1/4" (my Broan 688)? I would rather not have to replace the box, just the guts.

Asked by: WWSvendsen
It says on the outside of the box, it upgrades the Broan 688 specifically.

I have a NuTone model 671 A Bathroom fan. The fan motor no longer works. Is there a replacement, or Upgrade kit for this fan?

The Sticker on the fan mounting plate reads NUTONE MODEL 671 "B" UNIT FOR USE WITH MODEL 671 "A" UNIT
Asked by: Anonymous
Broan website sez 8 x 8 1/4 in. 688 is "Not Compatable" with kit.

Will it replace a Nutone 695P "B" Unit with the plug on the side

Asked by: Anonymous
I also have a motor plate marked 695P "B" unit. This upgrade kit includes two new motor plates; one of them was a perfect fit. Just follow the instructions for "690 series" and you'll be fine. One note; I decided not to install the scroll band (a flexible plastic strip designed to improve/contain airflow within the fan housing). It didn't fit very tightly in my existing fan housing, and eventually slipped out of position and hit the impeller. You don't need it, but if you want it, you can always glue it in place. All in all, a much better solution than tearing my ceiling apart to retrofit a completely new fan housing in place of the old unit.

60 CFM Bath Fan Upgrade Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 264.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement exhaust fan! I purchased two of these units to replace original units put in when house was built. They run quieter, look better and move about 20% more air than the earlier fans. Installation was basically simple and took about 10 minutes each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fast Replacment I am amazed at how fast I was able to swap out my existing fan. I took a few minutes to vacuum out the metal box and it cleaned up real nice after all these years. With the new motor and grill it moves more air than the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it works! I had 2 NuTone C350C2 B fans that were not on the compatibility list but needed replacement. This kit looked too perfect not to try and indeed it was a perfect fit - however I did not use the scroll band. There was some forcing needed due to the old enclosure not being square, but you could tell it was the same dimensions. I also reused the old retainer screw. The fan is quieter and more like white noise than a truck like the previous fan.. The modern grill is very nice also. I am fairly certain the new fan is not as effective as the previous fan but I value the lower db more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked fine, until it didn't Easy to install. Moved air well. Not any quieter than the generic builder fan it replaced. After about a year, the fan started slipping on the motor shaft. Since the fan was spinning slower than the motor, it produced an awful sound and practically stopped moving air. I disassembled the unit and found that the shaft only spins the fan by friction of a couple small rubber washers surrounding the circular shaft. Those washers lose their grip over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth it !!!!! 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, !!!!!!!!!!!
