Rated 5 out of 5 by jimdandy Great value
An identical Broan 676 installed by the builder 14 years ago became noisy. I was able to exchange the fan assembly from the old unit with the fan from the new unit and slip it into the old ceiling mounted housing in a matter of minutes. This was a snap!! The fan design hasn't changed in 15 years and it performs flawlessly. The best part.....it's very quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AJ1717 Good but...
The grille is an absolute pain to install. I bought two 676 fans and the grille springs do not fit right to a ceiling with 5/8" sheet rock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BRCokc This Exhaust Fan does the trick
Before replacing our old Exhaust Fan with this Broan we had a serious problem with too much moisture in our bathroom from the shower steam. Immediately when we turned this one on we knew we would be happy. Works well and does not make too much noise. Powerful but attractive, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by imsteveh Much louder than some others
Installed as new construction, very straight forward with no complications. In operation, moves a lot of air but is noisy and has significant vibration.
If noise and vibration are not an issue in your application, this is a durable and reliable fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Mikey Met my needs great, was a replacement for an older,less c.f.m. unit.
I purchased this tro replace a 30 year old Broan fan that woirked fine but only was 50 c.f.m. vs. 110, and this was more energy efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bosco Have had no problems with this unit
Although the bath fan does not get used much, we have had no problems with it at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spartanfam Oddly effective?
I installed the 676 into an older 70CFM Broan model w/light. The steel housings were identical, and it snapped right in with no problems.
It clearly vacates the humidity in our bathroom much better, and draws air from under our door which the old one never did.
The odd thing, when placing a piece of toilet paper next to the fan, it draws it up on 3 of the 4 sides of the fan. The 4th side actually BLOWS the paper away. This is the side of the 4" diameter exit hole. I believe the flow is too high and the 4" pipe cannot handle all of the airflow, so it blows some back into the room. The amount it vacates must exceed the amount it blows back in, as it still seems to work.
