  • 771 is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from as stated by others, "you get what you pay for" have replaced this fan annually and will do it again this weekend the attachment of the retaining clips to the plastic cover plate is awful. the motor is not designed to last more than a year apparently will replace this one last time but will find something better for next summer

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broan 771-A fan only last 3 months. The Broan 771-A fan only last 3 months. It's noisy right out of the box. The motor and bushings are completely shot. I wouldn't recommend this product. It was easy to install but it's not a good quality product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy Purchased this item thinking I was going to need to replace the complete unit. However once I started the project, all that was required was to remove the internal fan housing and simply replace it with the new fan housing. No need to remove the shroud. If its like for like. 20 min start to finish.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... I went to get an economical vent fan for my bathroom. I chose the least expensive, but still expected a working fan, with all functioning parts. I noticed that EVERY BOX for this particular fan had already been opened, and taped back shut. That should have been my sign. The fan works fine, but the spring wire clips broke when I attempted to install the flimsy cover, as so many others have complained. Tomorrow, I will be calling customer service for a replacement.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great product except for the plastic grille. installation fairly easy, but the tab holding the grille spring broke as I attempted to install it onto the fan.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from grill small and flimsy I installed without problems until I went to put the grill on. Even though my ceiling hole (8.25 x 8.28") is smaller than the grill (9.0x9.25") the grill has rounded corners and my ceiling hole has square corners. The hole corners show. Also one of the plastic tabs tht holds the springwire to the grill broke during installation. I called customer service and they were very nice and said they would send me 10" grill that would fit this model. Also, 4.0 sones is too loud in a small bathroom.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some problems Had a problem attaching the plastic cover. The small plastic attachment points that hold the spring wire broke when I was trying to install the cover. I called support and they sent me a new cover. Tried to install that one and it broke in the same location. This occurred when I squeezed the wire inward to attach it to the metal frame. I had the old cover from the previous fan, which I was able to install without any problem.

  • Quieter motor needed for 771

    Is there a replacement motor that can be purchased to make this unit quieter?
    Asked by: Scott
    Thank you for your question on the model 771 exhaust fan. The only parts available for the 771 would be the original replacement parts. If you need a quieter fan, you would need to completely remove the 771 from the ceiling and replace it with another model.

    I have a 688k installed in the bathroom. I would like to replace it with 771 or another with more CFM. Would 771 fit in the existing housing?

    Asked by: Manuto
    Thank you for your question on the model 688K and 771 exhaust fans. The only parts available for use in the 688K housing are the original replacement parts. If you need more CFM, you will need to completely remove the 688 from the ceiling and replace it with another model. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    removing the old housing

    I can't remove the old housing on one side, is stuck
    Asked by: Cristian
    Thank you for your question on the 771 exhaust fan. This fan housing has ears coming off of one side that would normally get nailed or screwed to a ceiling joist. That is probably what is holding it in place.

    what model can this be replaced with a light? Thank you.

    This is model 771 Broan. 70cfm and 4.0 scones
    Asked by: andy
    The Broan 771 model has a housing size of 7 1/4" x 7 1/2" and uses a 3" round duct size. We do not offer a fan/light unit that would offer the same dimensions as this. You would need to completely remove this unit from the ceiling and find a model that better fits your application. Our smallest fan/light uses a housing size of 8" x 8 1/4" and has a 4" round duct size.

    Replace a Broan 771 with a quieter unit

    what Broan fan can replace the 771 without changing the housing?
    Asked by: Tom
    Thank you for your question on the model 771 exhaust fan. The only parts available for use in the 771 housing would be the original replacement parts. If you need something that is quieter, you will need to completely remove the 771 from the ceiling and replace it with another model. You will also need to enlarge the hole in the ceiling and probably enlarge the duct work. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
