  • HD80L is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the cost This model is not whisper quiet, but it is not excessively noisy either. Made a great difference in our 70 year old home, which never had one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service I ordered this ceiling fan for my rental house bathroom. The very next day the fan was delivered to my house. My son and I installed it and it fit the opening where the old fan was and was a very simple installation. It looks great and work beautifully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for my vanity room ventilation fan I had a builder installed fan that stopped working within a year of moving in, called Broan as it is still under warranty and I was sent a replacement product within a week. Great customer service, great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from quiet and powerful! I bought this to replace a 14 year old broan fan. This one is more powerful and quieter! I come out of the shower and there are NO foggy mirrors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does the trick This adds a bit of extra light and does a great job for my small guest bathroom. I had a handy man install it. It works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet operation. We had this exhaust installed in our new home during construction. It was a first for the builder but with Broan's help, they figured it out. Since it is rafter mounted, it is exceptionally quiet. It works much better and much quieter that a hood mounted exhaust. We love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy Have had for 10 years. No problems. This is definitely the bathroom vent and light fixture you should buy if you want good function and ease of install and use. You do have to clean it once in a while - it sucks out dust.

  • Would there be a problem if I wire it so that it has single switch operation

    In the wiring diagram it shows having two switches, one for the fan, and one for the light. Due to the existing wiring, I only have one switch available. Would it be problematic for the machine, if I configure it to run on one switch?
    Asked by: Togetherness
    Thank you for your question on the model HD80L exhaust fan/light. There is no problem wiring the fan and light to one switch so that they both come on at the same time.

    How do you clean motor in ceiling fan?

    Asked by: Baxter
    Thank you for your question on the model HD80L exhaust fan/light. First you would remove the light lens by placing a small flat bladed screwdriver between the lens and grille and gently pry the lens out of the grille. Remove the bulb and then remove the nut in the center of the reflector. You then lower the assembly and unplug the light socket assembly. Unplug the fan assembly (BLACK receptacle). To remove motor plate: Find the single tab on the motor plate (located next to the receptacles). Push up near motor plate tab while pushing out on the side of the housing, or insert a flat bladed screwdriver into the slot in the housing (next to tab) and twist the screwdriver. The fan assembly will come down from the housing. You can then clean the blower wheel with a small brush, like an old toothbrush. Gently vacuum the fan, motor and interior of the housing. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Can I install the new fan motor from an HD80L into the old housing of a 678 fan?

    Asked by: Jenco 1
    Thank you for your question on the models 678 and HD80L exhaust fan/lights. The fan assembly from the HD80L is not designed to go into the 678 housing. You can get the replacement parts for the 678 through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page or by contacting Customer Service at 800-558-1711.

    can you use the same box as my 679-d

    I have a 679-d can I just interchange parts without changing the box, looks lik all the same dimentions except for grille and this one has 80cfm with lower scone
    Asked by: Gil
    Thank you for your question on the model 679-D and HD80L exhaust fan/lights. The only parts available for use in the 679 housing would be the original replacement parts. If you want the HD80L, you would need to totally remove the 679 from the ceiling and install the HD80L. The parts from the HD80L are not compatible with the 679 housing.

    Is there a damper that converts to a 3 inch vent that interchanges?

    My existing vent is a 3 inch pipe. The damper that comes on the HD80L is for a 4 inch pipe. There is not much room for a reducer in this project. so I'm hoping there is a damper from another Broan / Nutone that interchanges.
    Asked by: Richard
    Thank you for your question on the model HD80L exhaust fan/light. The HD80L requires the use of a four inch, preferably rigid duct work. We do not recommend using three inch duct work on this unit and would not have another damper duct connector for this unit that would accept three inch duct.
