Scroll Band Installation
Hi, I just purchased 2 kits to upgrade the fans in my house. I have the 696N models. How do I install the scroll bands as there are no tabs in the housings that I can see. My current scroll bands are riveted to the fan/motor plates. Do you have any suggestions for installing the plastic scroll bands without the tabs?
Thanks for the reply! I ended up installing my scroll bands just like you did except I used a sheet metal screw in the place of the rivet. I didn't have any rivets. I didn't want to install the fan without the scroll bands, with the square corners the airflow would have been impacted too much.

I wish to replace the motor for my unit marked 663b/688b
A housing. I see from a previous post that the 690 is not a replacement, what would be? the motor alone would be OK
The motor and impeller is part number 97012038. The part number for the complete motor assembly is 97012029. You can order replacement parts on our website at the “Shop for Parts “ link, or contact our customer service department at 1-800-558-1711 for assistance.

it seems that this will fit any matching housing size, regardless of the brand. What am I not understanding?
I have a 7.25" x 8" old non-working fan, from a third party (not Nutone/Broan). I was able to remove this with no problem, and now have the existing housing in my ceiling, with those measurements. Your 690 kit seems like a fine (and perhaps the only) readily available commercial solution to my problem, given the measurement constraints. It seems that you are providing all of the parts in the kit, and don't use any of the old parts, except for the old housing.
Perhaps the existing plug will be in the way?
I am very pleased to report that this worked. I think that the older cheapie fan must have been using a Nutone/Broan enclosure. In particular, there were two slits on the end of the enclosure opposite the plug. Also the plug was located in just the right place. I thought that I would need to snip away some of the 690's sheet metal, but in the end it fit like a glove.
The new fan is much quieter and more effective than the old one (when the latter still worked). I am a very happy customer, all the more so because I got rather lucky regarding the old enclosure.

My 675-a motor needs to be replaced. Can I 'upgrade' without having to enlarge/change current opening?
I see by the parts info that this fan is no longer made. Is it possible to upgrade to another Broan/Nutone fan and not have to enlarge the current cut-out or is ordering part 97008513 for $44.80 the best that I can do? I am hoping for a quieter fan.
Thank you for your question on the model 675 exhaust fan. Other than completely removing the 675 from the ceiling and installing a different model, you would need to replace the motor with part number 97008513. You can get this through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page. You can also contact customer service for assistance at 800-558-1711.
