    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 688J and 688K exhaust fan. The “J” and “K” represent some sort of revision made to the unit, but the “K” will work in the same housing as the “J”. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    688 vs 688K

    I have a model 688K but can only find the 688 at the hardware stores. What is the difference and will a 688 fan/motor/etc work instead of the 688k?? I just replaced the motor and I can hear it but the fan not working. Not sure if it's because its the wrong model. Please advise.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 688 exhaust fan. The 688 and the 688K are basically the same model. The difference is that the 688K is the model number including the revision letter. The parts from different revisions are not particularly interchangeable with each other, but the 688 currently in the stores would be compatible with the 688K.

    Can I replace a 688-K?

    I have a non-operational 688-K mounted in my bathroom ceiling. I cannot access the unit via the attic. Is it possible to replace the unit, or the motor, with access available only from the bathroom? Thanks.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 688-K exhaust fan. The 688-K can be repaired from the bathroom side of the unit. The easiest repair would be a fan assembly (motor mounting bracket, motor and blower wheel) part number 97012026. You could also just get the motor and blower wheel (part number 97012041) and reuse the mounting bracket you already have. Both of these can be purchased through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page. Customer Service can also assist you at 1-800-558-1711.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 671 exhaust fan. There should not be air blowing back down into the room. It sounds like you may have a stuck back draft damper or an obstruction in the duct work. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
