    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made This is a terrible product. It started rusting a few months after purchasing and now the screws are nearly completely rusted. The rust has also stained the glass. Would not recommend and will never buy a product from this company again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slide that hold the globe in place is stuck. We purchased and had this fixture professionally installed in 2014. Several months ago one of the originally installed light bulbs burned out. When I went to remove the glass globe, I could not get the release slide to move AT ALL! I tried using WD-40 as well as PB Breaker to loosen the spring loaded clip and only succeeded in filling the globe up with a greasy, nasty mass that - because I couldn't remove the globe to clean - had to stay in there for the time being. The brushed nickle decorative ring around the light assembly was also starting to rust pretty badly. I called Broan tech support to find out what a replacement globe was going to cost me as the only fix I could see was to smash the globe and try to loosen the spring clip without the glass in the way. I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled when Broan offered to send me an entire light assembly at NO COST! Even though I am less than thrilled with the design of this particular model, I am extremely happy with their customer service and for that reason alone I will purchase Broan products again in the future!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful functionality! Well done! I love this bathroom fan/light. It is not the typical plastic that is stuck to the ceiling. It's beautiful yet serves a function and functions well. I LOVE my new fan and highly recommend this product. Well done!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is good looking, and has good light The wife and I just purchased this bathroom fan/light, and installed it. So really haven't used it very long. But it is a good looking unit, seems plenty powerful enough and has good lighting compared to others we looked at. Installation went well, and so far we are really pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ran for only 2 years Had the Broan 766BN professionally installed in the hall bath in our new house 2 years ago. Today the fan makes horrible noises when it is started, and the motor stops after a minute or so. Pulled it to take a look, the bearings in the motor are out. I would expect that Broan wouldn't produce a fan that was so cheap that it won't make it to it's third year.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from vibration noise unacceptable Professionally had unit installed. First, not even near as quiet as demo unit in store. Second, exhaust performance is poor. It is installed in a 40 sq ft bathroom. Third, the spring clips holding the globe in place are nearly impossible to safely release to access under for bulb replacement. Lastly, the vibration will drive you insane. Once you think you have figured a solution a new vibration surfaces. I recommend non metallic components to aid in reducing metallic surface contact points. I will definately be replacing unit

  • Purchase 764RB in Canada?

    Can the 764RB be purchased in Canada? I don't see it at any of our hardware stores. Thanks.
    Asked by: Nicky
    According to the Canadian office, this is not available to Canada. But strange that it's cUL listed (the c means Canada). I would have purchased this one.

    Can this fixture be used in a shower to replace an existing broken shower fan/light?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, it can be exchanged for your broken fan/light. Be sure to check the size specs of the new fan to be sure that you can fit it in the replacements hole. This fan/light requires an 8" x 8 1/2" opening. If your cut out is too small, You can cut your existing drywall ceiling opening larger. If hole is too large, an easy fix is a ceiling medallion. Or, patch the ceiling. Be sure to check orientation of ducting. You may need to change that as well. Broan says no tub or shower installation for liability reasons. If you had a light and fan in there before, you certainly can do it again Just make sure you use screws or nails, not scotch tape and don't leave 8 feet of electrical wiring to dangle into the tub when the fan/light falls out when your scotch tape fails........hhehehehe

    is it possible to install this and make the fan and the light operate on different switches so I can have the light on and the fan off or Vice Versa?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, there are two wires for power, black and blue inside the housing. One goes to one switch and one goes to the other switch. Make sure you understand concept of the switch wiring, but other than that its that simple. I can't remember which color wire was for the fan and which one is for the light, but it really doesn't make a difference except for knowing which switch operates the fan vs. the light.

    can I put 764RB in 2 x 4 ceiling construction

    Hole in the ceiling

    Hi, We installed this fan and had accidentally cut a hole too big in the ceiling. On one side there is a 1 inch gap. Do you have any type of trim or accessory to go with this fan that could wrap around the base to cover up the hole? Thank you!
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Use a ceiling medallion. Available at all big box stores. Cost is minimal. Many attractive designs and sizes from 12" diameter up to 24" diameter. Easily cut for your square hole. They are white. May be painted. Try Rustolium oil rubbed color spray paint. Should look great!
