  • Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value This was purchased as a replacement/change out for a Broan fan with the same footprint. Should have been an easy swap out but unfortunately the original housing had been installed before the sheetrock was installed so I had to modify the new fan to fit. It all worked out good, just more involved than I had planned. July 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by good product noise level seems to be a little high. It has a high hum noise. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good product for the money. Purchased this fan to be part of a new shower stall I added to our downstairs bathroom. The fan works well moving sufficient air to help clear the humidity after a shower. Fan noise is relatively low but it does transmit a mild hum through the floor joists to the room above in spite of mounting the housing on elastic isolators. Installation was very easy since I had access to the open floor joists above for this project. All in all I am happy with my purchase and would buy Broan again March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good fan upgrade from original contractor grade fan I bought this fan to replace an original contractor installed bathfan with light. It performs well and much quieter than the original. Installation was relatively easy. March 10, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by doesn't draw much Installed this fan was pretty straight forward, but my bathroom is just as steamy after showering with this running the whole lime as it was with out a fan. I bought an over sized fan, so it isn't size, this is just a poor fan July 25, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 683l Review 683L unit was easy to install, very quiet when in use and reasonably priced. March 16, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good* *Overall performance is very good, but the fan blades are inaccessible (i.e., can't be cleaned#, which diminishes performance #increases noise) and lifespan of the unit. March 7, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 A really good value After researching several other vent/light fans, we purchased this one and are quite happy with it. Other than a slight buzz with the fan running (which I fixed with a short piece of rubber), it does everything we could ask. February 20, 2013

    Contact technical service@ 1-800-637-1453 for maximum exhaust distance. The duct run should be as short and straight as possible and as few elbows as possible.

    We are replacing 678 with light . The old unit was installed with metal brackets that ran from joist to joist. These old brackets won't work on the new unit!!!! Now what?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for the question on the 683L exhaust fan/light. To mount the 683L when there is no joist available, you would need to build out a frame from the joist to attach it to.

    Answer: 
    Yes, you can use a CFL in this unit. It should be equal to 100 watts or less and have the same base size.

    I am replacing an old fan unit. Once the new fan is in place, I can't see where the wires are so how will I know if they are touching the new unit?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 683L exhaust fan/light. To use the 683L with a single switch you would need to attach the house bare copper wire to the ground screw inside the 683L. You would then attach the two white wires from the 683L to the house white neutral wire. Next you would connect the black and blue wire from the 683L to the hot power wire from the wall switch.
