    679 swap for XB80L

     on 679
    I have a 679 that is brand new installation but we learned for ventilation reasons we need to run this on a timer, for those purposes I would want the XB80L for reduced noise. Can the 679 be replaced with the XB80L on a "guts" basis or will I need to remove the whole chassis? There is no attic access by the way.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, there is no way to simply change the inner workings, between these two models. If you want to upgrade your 679 to the XB80L, you will need to replace the entire unit.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. In order to change the bulb in the 679, you must first "pop" out, or remove the light lens. The best way to do this is with a "butter" knife or wide bladed scraper of sorts. You may view this procedure, in the installation instructions, which may be found on our web site when searching model 679. If you need further assistance, please contact out Technical Support line at 800-637-1453.

    jmg

     on 678
    I installed 2 of these fan's today, and one work's perfect and for the other one, only the fan work's , no light ?? I wired black/blue/black, white /white. And ground wire to ground screw??? Just as I did for the first one. I plugged the light assembly into a wall outlet and it worked. But not when I plug it into the plug in the fan???? This was a long project for us, and not to mention doing it with a bad back. Plus the cost of the fan. Can somebody PLEASE advise as to what the problem could be??

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan/light. The most common mistake made on these fans is that only one white wire is connected. The 678 will have a black wire, a blue wire and two white wires. Sometimes the second white wire gets coiled up underneath one of the sockets and gets missed. If that is not your problem, please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 679 exhaust fan/light. For a similar fan that is quieter, you may want to consider the 778WH (if you have access from an attic or crawl space above). If you do not have access from above, you may want to consider the XB80L. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
