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?
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?
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 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
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.
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.
