Hi HomeDepotCustomer,
We appreciate your feedback on the model 164, two bulb heater and fan unit. This model does not come with the bulbs, which is stated lower in the specifications on The Home Depot website. We are reaching out to Home Depot to make this more clear on the product page. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope you will enjoy your new heater and fan!

    Hi GEORGE,
    We are disappointed to learn that your 164 motor failed. Please contact our Technical Support team directly for warranty assistance at 800-637-1453. We would be happy to help you get this resolved.
      Wiring is a bit cumbersome with the small attached junction box, but it is a great unit.

      Lamp fuse
      Yes the Broan bathroom heat lamp products are faulty. This product needs to be investigated! Home depot should not sell it. The heat fuses (thermo cutoff) burn out regularly and without provocation. The unit or the fuses are faulty. Might be just a problem with new ones. I have had older ones for many years with no trouble. If lights stop and fan works (this is on a different fuse) a tripped Lamp fuse is likely the problem. These are easily replaced but will probably trip again. Get your money back if it is still guaranteed. Don't buy this product if you aren't already stuck with one. IMOP

          Long lasting
          Now replacing my 164M. It lasted 14 years while I had it and I don't know long before I moved in. Never had a problem with the lights. I hope they still make them like they used to.

            Wow, 6 years of bad reviews and it's still happeni
            We had a new home built. 2, yes 2, units went bad before we ever moved in. I bet you could count the number of times they'd been used - combined - on 1 hand. Electrician replace both units. The one in the master has gone bad again. Oldest bad review with the exact symptoms is 6 years; most recent is 1 month old. We've been in our new home 5 weeks. This is a poorly engineered product. If there was a 0 stars rating, I'd have selected it. Email? How about you email me at that address and I'll give you my phone number?

              Lights quit working
              Unit installed in 2016. After about 2 months the lights quit working. I finally got around to trouble shooting. All wiring is good. Fan works. Something internally that failed. Apparently I'm not the only one. I see a trend of folks reporting the same problem.

                The lights are too recessed, the fan is noisy, the cover doesn't seal to the ceiling. I bought socket extenders so more light & heat could get into the room. In the early morning, when I don't want to hear noise, I wait until I'm done, close the door, turn on the fan. It's not so noisy it bothers me in the shower. I don't know what a sone is supposed to sound like. I had assumed it was a brag about its quietness. It turned out to be a warning about its noisiness. I'm frugal, so I may prefer this to more expensive models. I'm keeping it.

                Thank you for taking the time to review model 164. The higher the Sone Level the louder the unit. The Sone level of this unit should be equivalent to a conversation or background noise. If you fell the unit is operating louder than it should, please reach out to our Technical Team directly at 800-637-1453. They will be happy to assist you.

                Big bad Dad
                I love the unit but for some reason the fan motor quit working 2 times and had to be replaced? Menards gave me one and Broan sent me one. Haven't had a problem in 6 months now and hope the problem is resolved? The fan and lamps are installed in my new home and gets used every day when shower is used. As of this writting I would recomment this purchase.

                Great product. Installation was relatively easy, instructions are straight forward. Fan is pretty quiet and 250watt bulbs work great for the heat. A surprise was the fan turns on automatically if the bulbs are on too long. Not a bad feature, just a surprise and made me question my wiring

                This fan gets so loud it can wake me from a deep sleep in a different room. You can quiet it with some grease or WD-40, but that will wear off and it will become loud again. Would not recommend for anyone.

                    So far so good!
                    I purchased this model to replace an older version in my bathroom. My electrician suggested replacing my old model with the same brand and make for the easiest installation. I am pleased with the fan performance and like the heat lamp for winter use. I would recommend this product.

                    A good unit, noisy, but effective
                    Unit was installed by a contractor on a total bathroom re-mo. It works fine as a fan and as a heat lite, but is noisy! I've been under 'the quiet ones' and there's a big difference, but none of the 'quiet ones' come with heat lamp sockets so it is what it is. I just went thru a replacement of the temp sensor on the lites. The contractor didn't wire it so the fan had to be on if the lites were on. So it got turned on without the fan and poof, out went the sensor. Only available online and not too hard to change if you have elec. experience, but not for the amateur.. It's now wired so the lites won't come on unless the fan is on. It's very odd the product label on the inside doesn't state the 'max' lite wattage, I had to go online to look it up. It's also odd the label says to use a15 amp circuit, it seems like it should be 20 amps which is what I do have. If 'another day' Broan re-designs this thing they need to strive for "quiet". That's the only reason I rate it as "average".

                    Thank you for your review on the model 164 bulb heater and fan unit. The ventilation fan is rated at 70 cfm's with 3.5 sones. It would be a moderate sone rating for the fan portion. The bulb heater should use two 250 watt, BR40 size infrared bulbs. The bulbs can be operated separately or together. The unit can also function with bulbs and fan controlled separately or together, and each bulb and fan controlled separately. If you have questions about the wiring, please contact our Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453. We would be happy to try to help you more.

                        4 164A-C units installed in my house in 1983. All still working perfectly.
                        Fans are getting a little noisy, but still work perfectly. Have worn out numerous,numerous bulbs. They don't have the most modern look, but I took the covers off and painted them to match the ceilings.

                            Fourth Person to Discover Same Defect
                            I'm the fourth person writing in to report that, after initially working, the lights stopped working (fan still works). I've checked out the power, and that is not the problem. I did a continuity test on the wires, and even with bulbs in place continuity in the wiring in the box does not exist for the two lights. I bought a second identical fixture, and the continuity check worked for this fixture. So, the problem is internal to the fixture and occurs after the fixture has been used for several weeks. OK Broan - there's a common problem with your two-bulb heater/fan (model 164), AND YOU SHOULD FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS AND TELL US HOW TO CORRECT IT. Three other reviews: "This product worked fine but now the lights have quit working" (rcorwin) … I have only used this unit for a couple of hours and now the lights do not work. The fan works but nothing else." "Extremely poor wiring and eventual problems (Wi4x4Man) … "It worked for about 1 week when suddenly both lights quit working but the fan still worked. The switches for the heat lamp and the light were providing power, and instead it was in the fixture itself." "It quit working (Allen)… "After one week of use, the lights stopped lighting. Doing some debugging I find that the current to the lights is too low and will not light the 2- 250 watt bulbs. Fan works on one switch and somehow the low current is also trying to run the fan. "

                              I have the same problem as Allen and wi4x4man. This product was wired correctly, took the electrian some time to figure it out. Could definitely use some longer wires. I have only used this unit for a couple of hours and now the lights do not work. The fan works but nothing else. I am troubleshooting it right now. I went to the Broan website to see if there were any troubleshooting pages.
