    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heater element out in less than one year of use. I remodeled my bathroom last February - 2017 and had them install this fan/heater/light. Wish I had look through reviews - heater went out this weekend!! Of course, purchase of this item happened in January 2017! Will NOT be replacing with this company. I believe it should have lasted longer than this - of course in Iowa, we do not use the heater except in late Fall and Winter so wasn't used much. I will need to contact someone to replace this unit - another cost!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loud and Angry I installed this product in 2011 and have replaced the exhaust fan motor twice and the heating element 3 times along with the heater fan. The motors used by Broan are cheap with very poor motor bearings. Now that I have a hole in my ceiling I might as well fill it with this piece of junk! I don't buy the parts anymore, I buy the entire unit and just replace everything. It is this feature that Broan excels.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the extra money for the heat feature. I installed this in our new home that we built. Six months after we moved in the heating element quit. I called Broan and they sent me a replacement element. That lasted about two years and just went out. We rarely use the heater as we have a super insulated house. The exhaust fan has plenty of power but howls like a hurricane.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyers Remorse This was part of a total bathroom remodel and I was pleased to find this fan. We had a small baseboard for regular heat, radiant heat on the floors, and for this cold winter days here in the Northeast we wanted to be able to use the heater portion of the fan. It worked well for about a year and totally died out. I began to research the issue a bit and was disappointed to find out this in all too common occurrence. I would think there has to be a better solution than replacing the heater element every few months or so.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice style but quality is lacking! This product was easy to install and has great features and style but Broan certainly has issues with parts quality. Our heater element failed after just over a year (warranty is 1yr). As you'll see in many of the reviews on here they appear to have a failure rate much higher then normal. We replaced it and the 2nd heating element lasted a little more then 3 months before it also failed. Decided to replace it one more time and next time I'll replace the entire unit with another brand.

    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.

    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.
