    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 5, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. April 8, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 22, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Does it's job. Does it's job. No problems noticed. Only a little loud. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. October 26, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Told to get a bath fan. We were told that we should get a bath fan even though we have a window in the bathroom. We checked around and found this fan. We didn't need a light but wanted a fan. The price was right so we got it. After it was installed, we found that it really helped with the moisture in the bathroom. We also like it becuse we can hear it but it's not real loud. We know it's running and when we are done, we are reminded to turn it off. I'm very pleased with this fan. August 21, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by pleased with the fans, had two installed, they work great, good exhaust are very pleased with the two installed in bathrooms, good exhaust and quiet running February 21, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 676 exhaust fan. The 676 is an exhaust fan only. It does not have a light. The grille can be removed from the 676 by pulling straight down. The grille will come down approximately two inches and you would need to reach around the grille and squeeze the butterfly springs together to completely remove it.

    Replacement for 684 with higher CFM

    Is there a replacement fan for the 684 with higher CFM that uses the same ceiling box? I would like to get a bigger fan, but do not want to mess with taking out the old ceiling box.

    Thanks in advance for any answers.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 684 exhaust fan. The only parts available for the 684 would be the original replacement parts. If you need more CFM you would need to completely remove the 684 from the ceiling and install a new unit.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 684 exhaust fan. If the blower wheel turns freely and the motor only hums when turned on, you would need to replace the motor. Please contact customer service for parts ordering assistance at 800-558-1711.
