    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well as a heated fan If you intend to heat a room, this is probably not the product you want. Not enough power unless its a very small room. Mine is installed about the wife's sink and provides a nice warm air draft during mirror time. Installed it on a 15 minute timer for automatic shutoff. Ran daily for 5 years before the heating element burned out. Ordering and replacing element and the safety breaker was relatively simple. May 20, 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesn't Put Out Much Heat We have this heater installed in a very small bathroom and it barely warms the room. The heat does not get pushed down but seems to stay at the ceiling. On top of that, it is now going off after only about 10 minutes and we have had it for only a little more than 2 years with limited use. I would not recommend it. December 16, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by performs well and is a good value for the price. Original Thermador unit lasted 30 years. When it died I replaced it with a Broan unit which was disappointing in that it failed within just a year or so. I was hesitant to try another Broan unit, but the big box store salesman reported good results from his customers so I took a chance. I am happy to report that this unit was quick and easy to install, is performing well and reliably. It has exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend it to anyone in need of an electric bathroom heater. It is, in my opinion, a very good value. h g March 10, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Affordable but wonder about longevity Product exactly replaced the one I had. I am concerned about quality of these heaters. The Broan heater I replaced was just a few years old. Nutone bathroom heaters used to last 25+ years (based on experience with my parent's house built in 1963) - not any more. August 25, 2013

    I am electrical contractor that has done service electrical troubleshooting for years. I have replaced the heater for this particular homeowner 2 times and they claim to have done it once.
    I've checked the thermal protector each time and it keeps going out. I have also checked other things throughout the house such as connections in switches, junction boxes, breaker panel and meter base to ensure there are no loose connections or shorts. Is there a suggestion or an upgrade that I can possibly do for these homeowners? I know Broan is a well known brand and would like to get this resolved.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 154 surface mounted radiant ceiling heater. The unit does contain a thermostat (thermal protector safety device) that will open if the internal temperatures of the unit get too high, but under normal circumstances that should not happen. If you are referring to a wall thermostat and you are sure the temperature around the thermostat is above the set temperature please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. If the fan is powered, the problem is most likely a defective thermal protector. This protector is located under the heating element and is available under part number S99271493. You may obtain it by visiting the "Shop for Parts" section on our website or by calling our Customer Service department at 800-558-1711.
