    Rated 5 out of 5 by A great upgrade for your bathroom fan. My old fan was very noisy. The new Braun Upgrade Kit was very easy to install and is much quieter. Definitely worth the investment. September 9, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Upgrade If you want a easy inexpensive upgrade to your bathroom that your wife will thank you for this is it. The extra power, plus the quiet motor really works well. September 6, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good replacement for Laundry Room Fan The installation required accessing the existing fan component from above in the attic. The housings were different, which required more time to work that issue as far as uninstalling the old and replacing with the new, but overall, the fan works just fine. September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and reasonably priced replacement unit. Installation was simple and this unit is much quieter and more powerful than the one it replaced. All parts necessary for a quick and easy installation were provided. Would definitely recommend it to all homeowners. July 8, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best upgrades i have done for great benefit.. Easy to install. much more quiet. improved air flow. All positive. April 21, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Saves a lot of work to replace upgrade bath fan This product is easy to install/replace a current bath fan. It is far quitter than the old fan and removes more moisture. March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick effective upgrade This unit was quick and easy to install, is much more quiet than the fan it replaced and the new cover provided is much more appealing than the one it replaced. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Liked the first one I bought, so I bought two more! This kit makes it SIMPLE to replace those old, full of lint, rusted and noisy bathroom fans! The new unit pushes more air out, operates much more quietly, and does a great job of pushing those shower vapors out of the room to clear the mirrors more quickly of the fog! I'd recommend them to anyone! I installed all three in bathrooms and they look great too! March 10, 2014

    663b/688b

    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

    Regards,

    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?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 690 exhaust fan upgrade kit. The 690 was designed as an upgrade for a number of the Broan and NuTone exhaust fans only. Although they may fit other manufacturer’s fans, we cannot suggest using the 690 for those units. For additional assistance with your question, please contact our Technical Support department at 800-637-1453.

    Answer: 
    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.

    Answer: 
    HI, Rick. Thanks for your question. This up-grade kit is specifcally for a group of Broan and Nutone economy models. The A647 and A664 are NOT part of that group of 3 or 4 models. This will not properly mount inside your housing. Thanks.

    Model 663/688

    Will the motor and fan listed on the 690 interchange with the motor and fan off my old pre 1986 633/688. I just want to replace the motor and van with a much quieter motor. We don't want to replace the existing system, also are the covers still available for the pre 1986 units.

    Answer: 
    The 690nt will fit if unit is marked with a letter suffix of G or later & measure 7.25 x 7.5 inches.
    If the letter suffixes are A through F there is no upgrade kit for these earlier models. Replacement parts are available through Broan by phone 1-800-558-1711 or online www.broan.com

    Answer: 
    This upgrade kit is designed for use in a specific group of Broan and NuTone economy fans. The 678 is not a part of that group. This will not fit properly in your housing.

    Replacement parts are available for model 678.
