    Rated 5 out of 5 by this product is excellent I like this product and i will recommend it to a friend . June 22, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This top-of-the line bathroom fan performs extremely well. I've had inexpensive exhaust fans for way too long. Since I have a high-grade Viking exhaust hood for my kitchen that is very quiet, I finally decided to get a similar fan for my bathroom and purchased this model for its very low sone level. The noisy old fan did not move enough air and I had installed it incorrectly thirty-five years ago. It was driving me nuts! I purchased this back in October of 2013, intending to install it before my daughter's family paid a visit. However, I didn't have time to do this due to other home improvements and the weather was too cold to work in my attic. I finally tackled the installation a couple of weeks ago when the weather turned nice. This was a challenge, mostly because the attic space was tight under the eaves, getting comfortable in this tight and very dusty space was impossible, and drilling a 4-1.2 " diameter hole through a 9" thick brick wall was difficult to make sure it was correctly aligned to have the duct go straight from the fan to the outside without bends. In addition, the existing drop ceiling made using tools was awkward since I am elderly and not in great shape. Thankfully the fan itself was a breeze to install. My electrical skills are poor so rerouting the circuits was another challenge, not because of the three function switch itself but because the existing circuits were ungrounded and ancient. I rerouted it to a newly installed GCFI outlet circuit in another tight space within a cabinet. The installation would have been a nightmare but your instructions were very clear. I actually didn't think it would work but your excellent instructions gave me the confidence to attempt this work. I dreaded the likelihood of having to go back up into the hot attic and fix any of the installation. I was thankful that everything worked so well. After a long process of providing a new ground connection, I was delighted when everything was finally connected and I turned on the power. The fan is so smooth that the noise is like a soothing breeze; so quiet that I wasn't sure it was performing well. However, the amount of air it moves is at least three times what I had before - amazing!. It's great to take a hot shower and have absolutely no steamed windows and mirrors. My wife was frustrated at how long it took me but she was also delighted about the quality and esthetics of this fan. June 2, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful fan but quiet This fan does a great job keeping my bathroom mold free. It moves a lot of air but it is very quiet. I painted the bathroom ceiling when I installed the fan and in over 3 years there as been no mold growth or paint peeling as there was with the previous fan. Great fan at a good price. April 28, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by this has the features i was looking for I've used Broan products since I built in 1974. these are my second replacements in those many years in 2 bath rooms and 4 boys. Features added was heat and both are even quitter than the old ones. ease of installation was helped by mu wiring was in place for the heat when it would be developed! March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product very impressed with how quiet this unit is. can hardly hear it run. moves a large volume of air also. very satisfied March 10, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by ok but electrical issues wiring extremely sensitive to moisture infiltration. plugs need to be better sealed from moisture especially since it is in a BATHROOM!!!! I bought this product mainly since it said it was made in USA. Would buy another one solely for that reason but you need to do a little more engineering on it. And thanks for not going to China with it. Finally got it to work correctly after 2 months of reworking it. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great product I love this product; I will be purchasing another for our second bathroom August 21, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice quiet operation So quiet! Even my young grandchildren are not afraid of it. June 21, 2013

    Answer: 
    Burle:

    The best way to control the QT90L is to purchase from your local home center a Three Function Control Switch, i.e. Broan Model P66W which will give you indepedent control of the standard lighting, night light and fan operations. Just follow the color coding of the instruction sheet.

    This hook-up assumes that you have three separate feeders to the fan using flexible metal conduit with a neutral and ground conductor. If you cannot wire this way an alternative would be to wire the fan and main light together and control the night light separately.

    Answer: 
    To clean the inside of lens or replace lamp(s), pull the grille assembly straight down and release the spring clips from detents on either side of the fan housing. I find that this is the easiest way to remove grill cover without damaging the plastic lens.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT90L exhaust fan/light. To remove the grille, pull straight down on the outsides of the grille. The grille should come down from the ceiling approximately two inches. You would then reach around the sides of the grille and squeeze the butterfly springs together to completely remove the grille from the ceiling.

    I have one 3-wire line running from the switch box up to the fan housing. In order to operate the 3 switches, don't I need an additional 3-wire line that runs between the two? That way I'll have enought wires to connect like the diagram - Correct?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT90L. To operate all the functions individually with three separate switches, you would need a minimum of three hot power wires coming from the switches as well as one white neutral wire and a bare ground wire.

    Answer: 
    CJVA: The 3-wire line you refer to is probably a black, red and white with a bare copper for ground. You are correct in your assumption that you need to run an additional 2-wire (black and white with bare copper) to operate the night light. This would allow you to connect the black wire to the blue wire for night light and tie the 2 white wires and 2 ground wires together. You probably had separate switches for the fan and room light with your old fan.

    Single switch operation

    I am replacing an old ceiling light fixture with the QT90L. From the light switch to theQT90L is the standard white/black/green wiring. I believe my options are few, i.e., the fan/light/night light must all operate together, defeating the individual and separate functions, unless I were to rewire and replace the switch with one having the three functions, (more complexity than I really wanted). So moving toward the simpler solution, what is the wiring scheme with all the various colored wires, for a single switch operation?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT90L exhaust fan/light/night light. You would want to connect all of the white wires inside the QT90L to the white house neutral wire. Connect the green wire from the unit to the green ground wire from the house. Connect the black and blue wires from the QT90L to the black hot wire from your switch and cap off the red wire from the unit. This installation will turn on the fan and light together. You will not use the night light.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QT90L exhaust fan/light/night light. The QT90L is designed for continuous duty. The difference between the QT and QTR models is normally a step up and the QTR units are usually a little quieter. If you need further assistance please contact our Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453.
