  • Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The Broan bathroom fan/light is an excellent value, easily installed and quiet while in use. The Broan bathroom light/fan is well designed, the instructions are easy to understand and follow. The fixture fits readily into the bathroom ceiling and takes about 1 hour to install when replacing an existing light/fan. The fan can be wired to operate either independently of or in conjunction with the light. The Broan bathroom light/fan is an attractive fixture with a strong, quiet fan that is an attractive addition to any bathroom. September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Balance of Quiet White Noise This fan replaced an older model bathroom exhaust fan which was significantly noisier. This fan, has just the right balance of what I call a "Quiet White Noise". In other words, it has just enough noise so you know its on and covers any sounds that you may not want heard. September 7, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product at a great price! I purchased this fan to use in my bathroom. I did the install myself, and it couldnt have been easier. The product is made very well, and I have had no issues with its performance. The fan is very quiet, yet very strong. I would definitely recommend. September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product. I am very pleased with this product. It works very well and the fan is very quiet. Since the fan we had before this one, (not a broan brand) was very loud, I was very pleased with this fan and light fixture. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it It was alittle small, so o didn't think it would be effective. But I have had it a while and it is great. It does the job, it is quiet, and it has stood the test of time, thank you Groan. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 678 Fan/Light, White Plastic Grille, 50 CFMGreat Product, Great product, great price, but CFM is a little too low. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good low-end bathroom fan Good fan for small bathroom. Not too loud. Efficient enough. Price was good. My only complaint is that the plastic covering the light is tinted a terrible shade of blue that makes any bulb you put in look very harsh. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Noisy but economical bathroom vent fan and light. My reason for not giving this fan/light set a higher rating is it is rather noisy. It was harder removing the old fan compared to how easily this fan went in the same hole in the ceiling. March 10, 2014

     on 678
    I installed 2 of these fan's today, and one work's perfect and for the other one, only the fan work's , no light ?? I wired black/blue/black, white /white. And ground wire to ground screw??? Just as I did for the first one. I plugged the light assembly into a wall outlet and it worked. But not when I plug it into the plug in the fan???? This was a long project for us, and not to mention doing it with a bad back. Plus the cost of the fan. Can somebody PLEASE advise as to what the problem could be??

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 678 exhaust fan/light. The most common mistake made on these fans is that only one white wire is connected. The 678 will have a black wire, a blue wire and two white wires. Sometimes the second white wire gets coiled up underneath one of the sockets and gets missed. If that is not your problem, please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Need to order replacement motor assembly with impeller

     on 678
    One of my fans is running loud and the other is not running at all. Unfortunately, I cannot replace the housing on either due to access issues, so I would like to replace the motor assemblies. The model number on the sticker inside the housings are 677H-B/1677H-B.

    The model number on the sticker on the motor assembly (which I need to replace) is 678-F/678F-F.

    I purchased a new 678 thinking I could swap in the new assembly, but it is incompatible. Please assist with a part ID that I can use with my existing housings. Thanks!

    679 swap for XB80L

     on 679
    I have a 679 that is brand new installation but we learned for ventilation reasons we need to run this on a timer, for those purposes I would want the XB80L for reduced noise. Can the 679 be replaced with the XB80L on a "guts" basis or will I need to remove the whole chassis? There is no attic access by the way.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, there is no way to simply change the inner workings, between these two models. If you want to upgrade your 679 to the XB80L, you will need to replace the entire unit.

    That is, without replacing the entire existing shell of the older unit?
