    Rated 5 out of 5 by Replacement for my vanity room ventilation fan I had a builder installed fan that stopped working within a year of moving in, called Broan as it is still under warranty and I was sent a replacement product within a week. Great customer service, great product. April 28, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Not without challenges Took out a 15 year old exact model and replaced with this. Was not a perfect fit and took a little modifying. February 8, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet operation. We had this exhaust installed in our new home during construction. It was a first for the builder but with Broan's help, they figured it out. Since it is rafter mounted, it is exceptionally quiet. It works much better and much quieter that a hood mounted exhaust. We love it. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Buy Have had for 10 years. No problems. This is definitely the bathroom vent and light fixture you should buy if you want good function and ease of install and use. You do have to clean it once in a while - it sucks out dust. October 2, 2013
    Rated 1 out of 5 by flap does not close Whenever windy outside flap is making noise.In normal position with no wind is a quarter open(it should be fully closed by gravity.Lousy design. April 12, 2009

    Answer: 
    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.

    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.

    Answer: 
    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.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model HD80L exhaust fan/light. Double check to be sure that both white wires inside the HD80L are connected to the house white neutral wire and the black and blue wires inside the unit are connected to the hot power wire coming from your wall switch. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
