Replaced old 657 with a new 657;previous wiring is to a dual switch so fan and light could be used independently. Now BOTH work with each switch.
Want to know why it won't work as previously , even though the black plug is in the black, and the white plug is in the white. Only pulled motor and replaced with the new motor, not the whole housing, and didn't change attic wiring. Help, please.
Thank you for your question on the model 657 exhaust fan/light. If you only unplugged and took the motor out of the 657 and replaced it, without changing any wiring, it would not operate any differently than it did before. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

Can I replace very old 658 with 657 without attic access?
We would like to replace the 658 (which was probably installed when our house was built in the 80s).with a model that has a fan and a light instead of a heater and fan. Can we replace it with the 657 without going into the attic? The crawl space in our attic at this area of the house is not accessible.
Thank you for your question on the 657 ventilation fan. In order to remove your 658 from the ceiling, you need to either have attic access or you will need to make the hole in the ceiling larger so you can work around the housing. The housing is attached to the ceiling joists with nails or screws. If you would like to discuss your installation further, please contact our Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.

Which model do I have?
I am trying to replace a ceiling fan installed by previous owner, about 20 years ago--not sure whether it is 655, 657, 656, or 658. Owner left installation instructions for all 4 models. I can't tell which model number it is (the model number is not visible). How can I tell whether it is simply a fan/light combination, or a fan/heater/light combination?
The model number should be stamped inside the metal can or housing in the ceiling. It should be visible once you remove the grille. If it is not, please contact our Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance in identifying which product you have.
