    Not venting

     on 696
    I have a 696 unit that is not venting the steam. I checked the motor and wheel, damper, and ducting- ALL working fine. The steam is collecting on the unit and condensing which is dripping out of the unit onto the floor, and also tripping the GFI. The bathroom is a 6x8x8 room.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the Broan 696. If your duct work and damper are free and clear of obstructions, we would ask how the duct run is installed. Is there an immediate bend or elbow right off the unit? This could block the air flow and create back pressure. The duct work should be as short and straight as possible using a 4" round duct size. If this is the case, then you may not have enough make up air entering the room and the fan is suffocating. You have a larger fan than what is required for your room size so you have to allow fresh air to enter the room to replace the air exhausted. For more assistance, please contact Technical Support at 800-637-1453.

    Retrofit kit for a model 657

     on 657
    I want to replace a 2 light heater (#163 I think ) with a #657 light and fan. I see you have retro fit kits for other fans. Do you have one for this model?
    I see nothing but grief if I have to go in the attic to replace. Maybe I can use one of the round designer fan/light combinations to cover the 8 1/2 x 14 inch space? Thanks,

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 163 dual radiant heat lamp and model 657 exhaust fan/light. There is no retrofit kit for the 163. If you want to install the 657 you will need to completely remove the 163 and install the new unit.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 696 exhaust fan/light. Since the wiring for the light and fan are separate from each other, the problem would normally be a power supply issue. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. The "hanger" bars which you speak of, are used primarily in new construction before any drywall is up. If you are dealing with existing construction, attic access is recommended and the housing can be secured to a joist by fastening through the side(s) of the housing, assuming that a joist is in place. If there is no joist on either side, you may need to frame the in the opening. If you need further information, please contact the Technical Support group at 800-637-1543.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 657 exhaust fan/light. The only bulb we can recommend placing in the 657 is the bulb listed in the installation instructions and spec sheet. The 657 requires a 100 watt maximum incandescent bulb.
