I had an older Broan bathroom fan/light and recently upgraded
To the A70L. I finished the install, flipped the switch and the fan ran
great. But when I tried to turn on the other lights in the bathroom,
the breaker tripped. The only wire I didn't have a place for was the
bare wire, which I wired to a screw on the unit. Could this be the problem?
Thank you for your question on the model A70L exhaust fan/light. The A70L has two white wires and two black wires. Please make sure that you have both white wires connected to the house white neutral wire. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

What is the maximun distance for horizontal venting the Broan A70L
I have a 20 foot run horizontal to reach the outside wall. Is this possible, and can I use rigid pvc 4 inch pipe?
Thank you for your question on the model A70L ventilation fan and light. Using 20 feet of 4" rigid metal duct work would be our recommendation. Using this recommendation, you could run your duct work approximately 30 feet before you would see a reduction in performance. Please contact our Technical Support with further questions at 800-637-1453.

Fan & Light on a double switch
I hooked the Broan A70L I did so on a double switch. I can run the fan without the light but not the light without the fan. Is this the way it's supposed to be? Or can the light be turned on by itself?
Thank you for your question on the model A70L ventilation fan with light. You can wire the unit so both functions operate independently of each other. Please give our Technical Support Department a call at 800-637-1453 for more assistance.

Can I use a Y to run one larger than 4 inch line for a 20 foot run, installing fan units from two bathrooms which are next to each other?
One unit will be the InVent Series Single-Speed Fan Light 70 CFM 2.0 Sones unit, and the other Fan will also be The InVent Series, but a little more powerful, as it is a larger bathroom. If this is possible, what special requirements may be needed, and what size should the vent line be for a 20 foot run?
Thank you for your question on the A70L and its duct work. We recommend that each fan have its own individual duct work/run and termination cap. For more assistance, please contact our Technical Support team directly at 800-637-1453. Thank you.
