    Is there any way to control the bathroom temperature other than just turning the heater off? If not, this heater could pose a safety problem of overheating while someone is taking a bath or shower.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    The 658 heater/fan has an internal thermal fuse on the heating element. If for some reason the unit were to overheat, this fuse would open and shut the heater off. You can also install a wall timer on this unit, which would take the place of the wall switch. A 15 minute timer, in white, is our model number 61W. There is also a 60 minute timer which is model number 59W. Both of these timers are available in an ivory finish under models 61V and 59V respectively.

    I have an old 658 heater/fan combo that I would like to replace with a similar but more quiet model. I don't want to do any additional modifications if possible. Which models do you suggest?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 658 exhaust fan/heater. There are no parts that can be placed inside the 658 housing other than the original replacement parts. If you need a unit that is quieter, you would need to totally remove the 658 from the ceiling and make the ceiling cutout larger, to install a new unit. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
