    Rated 5 out of 5 by This wall heater does my 10'x12' bathroom perfectly. Love it. My wall heater got hit by lightning, (12 yrs. old) bought new one,same model and replaced old mtr. and grill in less than 20 min., left original housing in wall. Everything interchanged perfectly. No crazy design changes. Good job Braun August 21, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great features, easy to install. Installed, had bad thermostat. Called company, they sent a part to fix within 3 days. Good product. August 21, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent little heater I installed this exact same heater when it was called Nautilis 20 years ago. It still works but is looking a bit worse for age. I am replacing it with this Broan model as it appears just as well made, hope it lasts just as long. February 24, 2013

    Thermostat problem using our wall heater

    Our wall heater has a new problem which is that it turns itself on and off when we have it set on the low (off) setting. This happens regardless of how cold or warm the bathroom is. It's annoying since it can wake us up at night.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. If your heater is coming on and off, with no regard to the setting of the thermostat, my assumption would be that the thermostat is defective. This part number is S99030191 and is available by calling our Customer Service group at 800-558-1711 or by visiting the "Shop for Parts" section on our website. If you need further assistance, please contact Technical Service at 800-637-1453.

    How tight can you make the rough-in hole (in terms of fresh air being drawn into stud cavity) and can the rear of the box be flushed tight to the back of the rough-in hole?

    Thank you for your question on the model 178 wall heater. Looking at the front of the 178 heater, the air is pulled into it at the left side of the grille and pushed out to the room through the right side of the grille. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    fan does not work, only a quiet tick about mid-way. Is unit burned out, or can something else be the problem? I want to fix it for her to save her some money. Advise ASAP. Thanks

    Is there a way to keep the air from blowing across the thermostat (so that thermostat turns on/off from room temp rather than heater temp?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 178 wall heater. We do not suggest or recommend using any sort of deflector on the 178. It will create an overheat situation. There is no way to direct the heat in another direction.

    Thank you for your question on the model 170 wall mounted fan forced heater. The 170 fan is designed to work with the heater only. You cannot run the fan separately from the heater.
