  • 684 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from noisy and not very efficient Quite noisy and not very efficient. Grill mounts broke after first cleaning. Motor stopped working after 13 months, exactly when the warranty ended. Very disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from 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 from Does it's job. Does it's job. No problems noticed. Only a little loud.

    How long can you run 4" smooth pipe from fan to roof of building

    Asked by: Dan
    Thank you for your question on the model 684 exhaust fan. Using four inch rigid duct work you can run up to 23 feet straight. You would need to reduce that distance by four feet for every elbow installed.

    can this fan run continuously?

    Asked by: randy
    Thank you for your question on the Broan model 684. This model is not designed for continuous operation. Please consider the HD80 for a model that is designed for continous operation.

    Replace 684 without cutting new hole in ceiling?

    I need to replace the 684 fan and rather than rebuild with a new motor I’d like to upgrade to a higher cfm fan. I know I can’t use the 684 housing to get higher cfm but is there another model which has the same housing dimensions as the 684 so I could upgrade without cutting a larger hole in the ceiling? I want fan only, no light. Thanks!

    Asked by: Dilly
    Thank you for your question on the model 684 exhaust fan. Yes, the 684N-B and the 684-B would be the same model.
