Bought this to replace existing Nutone. It fit right in! Didn't have to make any modifications. Update version looks great. Works so much better. Bought the model up for a long run with the vent pipe. It is really taking care of the moisture from showers. I plan to buy another one to replace another. Seems to be a bit more quiet than our old one as well.

This unit was purchased as a replacement for an old unit. It was easy to install, much quieter, and reasonably priced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkyMark Great replacement for older 663/669 Nutone model
My home is 19 years olds and has the older Nutone model 663/669L model. The motor quit working. I searched online to see if I could find a replacement motor and everywhere I looked the motor was marked as obsolete. Unfortunately it is the end of summer and 91 degrees today. Not a great day for being in the attic.
Next step was to see what they had to offer at home depot. They sold a replacement Nutone motor only for $14.97 which is 50cfm so I took that home to try to see if I could just replace the motor as everything else was working fine and it was the same cfm as the original motor. Well that didn't work because the motor obviously was for a model that did not have a light originally as the motor mounted from the bottom and not from the top like the original motor I was trying to replace. So I measured the original box and it was in a 9" x9" opening.
Went back to home depot and returned the motor only and went to shop for a new replacement fan with light. I came across Nutone model that looked similar to my original but was a rectangle design of 14" x 9" and I didn't want to cut sheetrock or go into the attic. Came across this model and the box stated it was a 9"x9" opening that was needed like my original unit. Bought it and took it home.
The interior box was exactly the same as the original which included the opening on the side at 4". This was a concern since the original was only a 50cfm motor and this is a 70 cfm motor. Well I did have to modify two things but everything fit into the original box. First the motor mount was just different enough that I would not be able to plug the light and motor into the sockets. The new model's motor mount was a little farther in than the original and the holes through the motor mount did not line up exactly with the plugs from the original box which was still in my ceiling. However the motor screws and set were exactly the same as the original. So I unbolted the motor from the new model and attached it to the old motor mount and it installed perfectly with no modifications necessary. Next the light housing has a metal A frame bent down and a CFL bulb would not fit so I bent it up out of the way (easy to do) and screwed in the 100W A19 CFL bulb which then went in perfectly and would save me money since it uses way less electricity than the a old fashioned A19 bulb. (for those of wondering what a A19 bulb is it is an original incandescent light bulb). Everything snapped together perfectly and it is done! Works like a charm and is quieter than the original motor.

Easy to install, just a little noisy but does the job well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lac5 This product makes noise when it is windy outside
NuTone model 769RL bath fan installed in new construction, makes noise when it is windy outdoors. From the FAQ section of the the Nutone website, the company is well aware that this issue exists & has not taken steps as of early 2015, to aid the installer with a "fix" for this issue.
NuTone should consider adding a bumper of some kind on dampers to prevent back draft movement and resulting noise.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skip08 overall product summary is very good
This fan was easy to do a replacement-install. dimensions were the same as older model. The loudness is a little more than my previous one, but suction is much better. Looking all the other choices I had, I would have chosen this model again. It does the trick and at an affordable price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Diyguy Good product for fair price
I've delivered babies that were easier to get out than the wires inside this unit. Didn't know I was missing the blue wire until the light didn't work(but the fan did) and I read some online troubleshooting reviews. I would suggest the manufacturer connect all the wires together for easier access. Otherwise easy install in new construction

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Worst purchase ever
Extremely frustrating. Package doesn't provide all parts needed. Expect to purchase pass-through to protect the electrical wires - which you don't find out until you're trying to install the unit. Doesn't specify which 13 watt bulb to buy - 2 prong or 4 prong. The best information is on the unit itself - inside the box. Once you have the correct bulb, the socket won't accept it. A lot of trouble for something that doesn't work.
