    I wish to wire this unit to a timer switch with Black, Red, White, and Ground connection wires. The timer will control the unit - all on or all off. How should that work, as it appears to be the only option not addressed in the Rosetta Stone like wiring diagrams

    this website, and your packaging, downplay this fact. It is a huge problem with these products, and limits their utility and applicability to an obvious common preference, as illustrated by your own picture.

    How about cleaning this mess up?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 164 dual radiant heat lamp/exhaust fan. There are no heaters on the market that UL has approved for over a tub of shower. We do not know of any pictures of this unit over a tub or shower, but will examine the web site for any of these possible pictures.

    Does the 162 fit in the space used for 162-C?

    I've read varying comments online that say the 162 may not simply fit into the space formerly occupied by an old unit. Does the 162 fit in space where a 162-C once was?

    Thank you for your question on the Broan 162 single bulb heater/fan. The housing size has not changed on our bulb heaters. The 162 housing size measures 8 1/8" x 8 3/8" x 6 3/8".

    I am replacing my 28-year old Broan 164-AC and have purchased the Model 164. Will this work? It is a two-bulb hearter/fan but can I put a regular light bulb in one side?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 164 two bulb radiant heat lamp/exhaust fan. The difference between the 164AC and the current unit would be the revision of the product. The current version parts will not work in your version. You can place a heat bulb in one socket and a regular bulb in the second socket. If replacing the unit completely, the housing will still be the same size and would be an appropriate replacement. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.
