Broan 655 wireing question
Is this an exhaust fan? If so how do I wire to exhaust when I turn the light on and when I turn the other light switch to turn on the heater does the fan work to blow the heat down? The way it works out of the box is one switch turns on the light only and the other switch turns the fan and heater on. Is that exhausting and heating at the same time? Confused.
You need a triple switch, one for fan, one for light, and one for the heater. I wired mine up for 3 separate functions and all work great. Sounds like you need to hire an electrician. Good luck

Can I replace a 655F with a model 659?
It seems that there are lots of comments on the net about how hard it is to get some of these out of the ceiling from below. Would it be difficult to replace a 655F with a new model 659?
Thank you for your question on the model 659. You will need to remove the 655 housing from ceiling in order to install the 659. It is easier to do so if you have attic access. It can be done from below, but you have to enlarge the hole in the ceiling in order to work around the housing. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact Technical Support directly at 1-800-637-1453.

Duct Adapter for Broan 659
My current installed fan has 3 inch ducting.
Is there an adapter available so the Broan 659 can be installed to a 3 inch duct?
Thank you for your question on the model 659 exhaust fan/heater/light. The 659 requires the use of 4” duct work to vent the exhaust fan. We do not recommend using three inch duct work on this unit.

should exhaust and heater be run at same time
Can the exhaust and heater be run at same time? Should this cause the wall switch to get hot?
Thank you for your question on the model 659 exhaust fan/heater/light. You can run the heater and exhaust fan at the same time, but you would be removing the heat from the room almost as fast as you were creating it. You would normally run the heater before the shower to heat the room up and run the exhaust fan when you start your shower. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
