  • 100HL is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pros & Cons We purchased a Model 100HL to replace an existing unit that did not meet the "tissue test". The installation was done by a contractor. It has a better exhaust pulling power. It is not as quiet as the previous unit but it performs better. We were disappointed there was not a built-in night light that came with it as we found that to be a nice feature on the previous unit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heater/fan melted the grid Several years old and it melted the grid.. Big surprise. Next time get a rheostat to control the heat.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product....poor written details. I was disappointed not to find a switch included. Nowhere on the box or instructions does it say you need to buy it separately. The needed switch is very hard to find. Dimensions are not on box; had to guess at cutout size. Have to run additional wires from switch to unit. Rather poor instructions. However, It looks like a good unit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Find another brand This model is pretty much worthless for installation in an existing ceiling. The brackets used to mount will not slide in far enough to clear the required ceiling cutout. And, you cannot slide the bracket into the required tracks once the fixture is placed in the opening. This is obviously an engineering oversight. I suggest letting one of your engineers attempt to install this model in an existing ceiling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Installed this 100HL unit. Every thing looks good and works well except the light dims when the heater is turned on? Could be unit or possible wiring problem. A separate vanity light on the same circuit (even though that's not recommended) does not dim, only the one light in the fan unit itself?? Any comments or solutions are welcome. Thanks.

  • We just bought a HL100 heater, light fan unit. I worked wonderful for a week. Now the heater is only blowing air not hot air. Can you help me?

    Heater fan and element not working

    My heater fan stopped working a few months ago. After checking it out, I also found the heating element was not working. There is voltage at the pin connector for the heater assembly so I bought a replacement heating element and fan motor. I've just installed them, hooked them back up and still nothing.... Any suggestions?
    Asked by: apom83
    I just replaced the heating element -- took less than 5 minutes. While my heater was out of warranty, Broan promptly sent a replacement unit once I sent them a photo of the registration number and date on the side of the unit.

    Should there be continuity between the fan hot lead and the heater hot lead?

    Hi Broan rep! Nice product, but I have a question. I just had my unit mechanically installed, and then I wired it up per the manual. But before hooking up the power, I put a resistance meter across the switches to make sure everything was wired up right. I checked for no connection across each of the three switches with them all off. That was fine. All neutrals and grounds showed continuity. With the light switch off there was no continuity between power and the light lead until the switch was closed, and then there was zero resistance. Good. Neither the fan nor heater hot leads showed continuity to the light hot lead. When I put the meter across the fan switch with the fan switch on and the heater switch off, I got continuity to the fan lead. But I also showed continuity to the heater lead! So I pulled the wires from the switch, and I still have continuity at the switch box between the fan hot lead and the heater hot lead! That can't be right, can it? And they are separate cables, and since one is 2-12 and the other is 3-12 I know I got the right ones. So the only place they could be connected is inside the unit, right? Is it supposed to be like that? Please let me know if this is correct before I put power on, it just doesn't seem right. Thank you.
    Asked by: Oogie
    Thanks for the reply, but it's OK, I got it hooked up and working fine. Since the fan and heater/fan both go to a common neutral in the switch box, with the wires lifted there will be a path from the fan switch up to the fan, down through it's neutral; back up through the heater/fan neutral, through that sub-assembly, and then back down through it's power lead. The resistance of the two is in series, but since fan motors and heating elements are basically shorts to the meter's DC, it only looked like there might be a problem. I do appreciate the fast, courteous response, though.
