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 2 out of 5 by JS60 Heater is a bust!
Like many other reviewers, I've had issues with the heating element failing. I am on my fourth element in two years! The heater fan works fine & I checked to make certain things weren't dirty or airflow restricted.
Very frustrating as the HEATER feature was the primary reason we bought this model & cut a larger hole in the ceiling. This model is too expensive to have this recurring failure. Broan/NuTone should think about reviewing the heater element spec / thermal fuse as there is obviously a problem with it.

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.

I bought two - one was excellent, lived up to expectations. The other required a motor replacement within 2 months. Replacement turned loud noisy within 6 months of replacement.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coldfeet Good product -- wish heater were a bit more powerful.
I purchased two of these to replace older vent fans in two existing bathrooms. The unit performs very well in the smaller of the two bathrooms; however, in the larger bath, it does not put out enough heat for the larger space. The small heater vent through which the heat flows allows you to direct the heat, but I think something that would allow greater diffusion of the heat would allow it to perform better. I admit that the large bath is very large (12' x 12' with 8' ceilings); however, the unit is placed right outside the shower, but the directional vent only allows heat to flow in a very small area that is not adequate for the room. I am certainly pleased to have heat in the baths now--just keep in mind the size of your bathroom.
