    Rated 3 out of 5 by Meets Expectations The unit is very noisey. It does heat my small bathroom. March 19, 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Thermal Requirements Changed by the U.L.? I have had two of these units in my home for over 35 years. Replacing them about every 10 years and replacing a thermal protector once in a while. The last thermal protectors I bought blew out the first time the heater was used over 10 minutes. Thinking the parts were defective I contacted Broan. They informed me that the U.L. changed the parameters of the protection from a resettable device to a one time use. When it blows you have to install another, then another, and so on. Well I told Broan that that solution also blows and will cause me now to have to replace the two good units I have with new heaters. The replacements will most probably be from a different manufacturer. Also note that Broan boasts that the product is 100% made in America but the new replacement parts are marked "made in china". If you have these in your home then you will soon have to make the same decision I have made and that's to go to a wall heater or a baseboard type heater. Looks like the ceiling mounted heaters are a bad choice if in fact U.L. did what they say. I had good service from the product but no longer can I recommend it. October 22, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I bought a month ago and i am happy October 1, 2015
    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 4 out of 5 by Broan - Broan 154 Aluminum Wire Element Surface Mounted Heater with Built-In Fan, 1250W Works perfect, no problems what so ever in a 10' ceiling. January 29, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, strongly recommend . January 29, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy Install, Good Heat Bought this about a year ago. Easy to install and works as advertised. Did not give 5 stars since it is a little noisy, but not too bad. January 28, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Must have for the bath. This unit replaces the same model that lasted 5 years. January 7, 2015

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 154 fan forced ceiling heater. The most common reason for the thermal protector on the 154 to go out would be if the internal fan was no longer running. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 154 surface mounted radiant ceiling heater. There is a thermal protector that is part of the heating coil. It is a one shot device and cannot be reset. The heating assembly (part number 75075-00) would need to be replaced. You can get this part through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page or from the Customer Service Department at 800-558-1711.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 157 surface mounted radiant ceiling heater. The 157 has a one shot thermal protector located with the heating coil. If the inside of the housing gets too hot, it will open and disconnect power to the heating coil and motor. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
