  • Rated 3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor longevity on this one! I have built 4 homes and never seen a fan that quits this quick. The motor is caputs and needs to be replaced, but is not covered under my homeowners warranty. Just perfect! I have 2 more of these fans in 2 other bathrooms. Waiting for them to die soon! Broan I have a question for you......what happened to quality and reliability? 5 years is hardly reliable. I don't recommend anyone waste their time on this 162 model. Not a way to spend your hard earned cash. April 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for parts I bought this for parts to rebuild and older Broan heater fan. The heater unit was much less expensive than the individual parts I needed. February 17, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by This product worked fine but now the lights have quit working. I have the same problem as Allen and wi4x4man. This product was wired correctly, took the electrian some time to figure it out. Could definitely use some longer wires. I have only used this unit for a couple of hours and now the lights do not work. The fan works but nothing else. I am troubleshooting it right now. I went to the Broan website to see if there were any troubleshooting pages. November 19, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Wish is had more heat Purchased this to replace the Broan unit which had the blower heat, that unit stopped working within a year. This unit with the heat bulb isn't as warm. I like the heat blowing on me when I stepped out of the shower, this unit isn't nearly as warm September 5, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by It quit working! I set this fixture up to run one light and the fan on a timed switch and the second light on another switch. After one week of use, the lights stopped lighting. Doing some debugging I find that the current to the lights is too low and will not light the 2- 250 watt bulbs. Fan works on one switch and somehow the low current is also trying to run the fan. The wiring diagram is a mess, but I figured it out and wired it properly. I am still trying to figure out how to salvage the fixture. It would be great if an engineer from Broan would address this issue and those that others have had with this product July 23, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely Poor Wiring and Eventual Problems The wiring diagram is horrible to say the least. After a bit of studying, I figured out how it was supposed to work and hooked it up. It worked for about 1 week when suddenly both lights quit working but the fan still worked. The switches for the heat lamp and the light were providing power, and instead it was in the fixture itself. In all total, it had about 3 hours of total "run time", and that being the light, not the heat lamp or the blower. Furthermore, the pigtails within the electrical box are far too short for any sort of installation ease, with one being entirely too short altogether. I am still working on figuring out what is wrong with this fixture, and when I saw this, I decided to comment. June 18, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works as it should, looks decent enough. The installation of the product is pretty average in terms of exhaust fans. Unless you have an open ceiling or plan on cutting from joist to joist, you'll need access from above. I did enjoy the adjustments of the mounting brackets which allow for play in thickness of the drywall. The wiring diagram is kind of confusing at first because it's not typical. The junction box was a little tight when putting it back on, I had to bend the metal tab a bit. I don't know for sure that this thing produces only 70 sones, however I did fill the gaps and tried to keep things as secure as possible to lower that. It does seem better after the fact. The grill is kind of cheap, it attaches uses to springs. Luckily you don't need to remove it to replace the light bulb, otherwise I'd see this being a problem. This had no bearing on me, but after a quick search I wasn't able to find any 4" to 3" adapters made by Broan, This model takes 4" so make sure that's what you have if you're replacing an existing unit. Overall I was able to complete this (start to finish) in about an 1 hour and 15 minutes, and this includes adding insulation, and new duct work. June 26, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by wiring diagrams are VERY POOR You need to provide a schematic diagram for wiring. The dumbed down illustrations that are provided are substandard. If you just told us what color wire went which which function, that would be enough. But instead you list the wire color with a black/white coversion chart - but no funtion information with it. I little bit more information please. December 15, 2013

    I am confused. The wiring instructions for model 164 says "red to red" wiring; however, there is only 1 red wire. I want the lamps to operate together and the vent to operate separately.

    Thank you for your question on the model 164 dual radiant heat lamp/exhaust fan. The 164 and the current 9427P are the same unit and both are slightly larger than the 9427N.

    I have a 164. After over a year of good service, both lights turned off at the same time and will not come back on. Bulbs look good. Power checked to the fixture is good. I suspect it could be the thermostat for the lamps giving me the problem.
