    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan. The proper fan assembly for the 678A would be part number 97012028 and the motor and blower wheel alone would be part number 97012038. Both of these part numbers can be purchased through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page.

    I need to replace my fan but cannot replace the whole thing. I did find on the buy parts section a 97012028 Complete Motor Assembly With Plastic Impeller & Bracket 678-A, B, C, D, E, F, 678F-F (Includes Key Nos. 8,9,11,14, & 15 ). Would that one work?

    We are replacing the grilles on our Broan fans #678 and purchased the replacement grille #97014094. However, we need the springs that are used to attach the grilles. They look like they should be about 2" long. What is the part number?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan/light. The grille on the 678 does not use grille springs. The reflector goes up through the grille and holds it in place by way of a nut in the top of the reflector. You can check out the installation instructions on our web site for more detailed instructions or contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Does Damper/Duct Connector need all 4 metal tabs inside when attached? If not, would it cause mold or mildew?

    I have a Broan 678 mounted in a drywall shower ceiling and discovered mildew around the vent intakes on the ceiling drywall. I took the unit apart and the entire housing had moisture in it despite not having had any showers or moisture in the bathroom for about 5 days. Looking at the damper I did see it was open but I also noticed the bottom of the connector had a gap between the housing and the connector. The top and both sides had the metal housing tabs INSIDE the plastic connector but the bottom metal tab was OUTSIDE the connector. Could this be causing some moisture to be blown into the ceiling and not all go into the ductwork? Curious, I checked the other 3 678's in the house and found them all the same. One of the connectors did not have a damper in it. Are the dampers an option? All of my vents have a damper mounted on the exterior of the house and upon inspection did not have moisture or obstructions in them. I am attaching photos of the missing damper and the moist damper, both showing the bottom housing tab.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan/light. The problem you are having does not have anything to do with the back draft dampers on the 678. The problem is the type of duct work you are using. Using the flexible duct work that is shown in your photos, water collects in the large grooves and eventually drains back to the fan. If you have attic access you may want to check for additional water being held in the duct work.
