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
