Rated 4 out of 5 by lincoln this product has it all
Ive had this for almost a year the instructions were easy to read had a pro install the wiring with a dedicated line at the fuse panel heater ran great when first installed but quit when winter came I started noticing the heater fan would be quite when first turned on but would start getting loud when warmed up took out the heater/blower motor checked resistance with volt ohm meter and found that the diode has blown contacts were rusted i only run either the exhaust fan or heater never together hope that the new element will be an improvement fingers crossed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeneK Fantastic Bathroom Heater... Heat unit went out after 2 years,, easily replaced
We have had this for over 2 years. I am a bit of a handy person, so I installed the unit and had it professionally wired. ( I suggest get a professional to wire ) After 2 winters the Heater went out. Called Broan ...they were so nice. Sent replacement ...and we recieved it within 3 days. It was very very easy to install. We did not need to get back up in the attic, since it was designed properly. Replaced heater unit . ( 2 Screws ...installed from underneath the unit )
We will look for there products in the future .. GOOD JOB BROAN

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary Product Technical Support call: 1-800-637-1453
I got about 4 months out of the heater element I replaced on my dime. This time I called tech support and they explained, as others have stated, that the heater fan in older models does not come up to speed as fast as it should. They have a new heater fan with a new heater element they are more than happy to send to you. It is free and the shipping is free. The rep on the phone was great to deal with. No arguing. No when and where did you buy it. Pain free. I love good customer service and this is what I received. Call them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by quad REPLACEMENT PARTS MADE EASY !!!
First 2 heater units failed in first 5 weeks.. BUT contacted tech service who is sending new unit asap.. FREE OF CHARGE & WARRANTY STARTS OVER.. Must say, I got the feeling that the new unit has BETTER QUALITY bearings on the blower motor shaft ( ball bearings) by comments made. It seems to me as if the motor turns the fan too slow on initial startup and causes the thermal protector to shut the heating unit down as it starts to overheat before fan turns full speed..personal opinion of course.. BUT the problem is that it won't let it restart after cooling down a bit, unlike older ones did.. REPLACING HEATER UNIT IS VERY EASY !!!~2 screws & 1 plug.. Less than perfect on scoring only because of initial problems..tech service very user friendly and easy to use..

Rated 4 out of 5 by mgmg Update to previous review - Broan fixed heater issuer
This review is from: Broan 100HL Directionally-Adjustable Bath Fan with Heater and Incandescent Light (Tools & Home Improvement)
When we initially purchased this fan it did not function correctly. The heater unit kept burning out after very little use. The manufacturer "Broan" was very responsive to this situation. They have since produced a new heating unit insert that they sent free of charge to us for both of our fans. It was easy to install, the heaters have been working very well since then. So far, no further problems. Thank you Broan for being a responsible company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PatK Great product for my log cabin bathroom.
within one week after installing the heater elements quit. I was extremely pleased when I was able to receive a replacement. Thank you, Maybe you could design it with replaceable fuses or resettable overloads.

Rated 3 out of 5 by wyomcn Heater motor has gone out twice in a year and a half
We love the heater,fan, light combo, but the heater motor keeps going out in a short time. That is disappoingint especially for the cost of replacement.
