    I am replacing an earlier Broan fan with this model only to add the light. I want the light and fan to be on at the same time always. how would the wiring work for doing this?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 680 exhaust fan/light. You can operate the fan and light together on one standard wall switch. You would connect the bare ground wire from the house to the ground screw inside the 680. Connect the two white wires from the 680 to the house white neutral wire. Connect the black and blue wires from the 680 to the hot power wire from your switch.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 680 exhaust fan/light. The only motor designed to go inside the 680 housing would be the original replacement motor. We would not suggest trying to use anything other than the original replacement motor. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan/light. There is a nut in the top of the light reflector that you need to remove. It will release the reflector and grille from the ceiling. The installation instructions are available for download from our web site for your convenience.

    I feel a draft coming from this fan and it makes the bathroom very cold or hot (depending on the weather). Does this fan in any way prevent this?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan/light. There should be a back draft damper attached to the unit housing. That would be where the duct work attaches to the 678. We also recommend having a roof or wall cap, where the duct work exits the house, with a built-in damper.
