SOURCE: Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?

There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.

SOURCE: how do you access the light on a broan

Gently pull down, work it down slowly these tend to get dry over time and crack, If you do not see any exposed screws it is the basic pull down type. Not to insult your knowledge but make sure the fan is not on when you do this because the blades will be exposed.

SOURCE: Replace motor in Broan 678 bathroom fan

I ran into the same problem, Lowe's carries Broan exhaust vents. They had both a replacement motor for all generations of 678 fans for $18, and they also had the latest generation of the complete unit for $40. I bought the complete unit, which included the fan I needed. Just unbolted it from the new bracket and bolted it to the old one. The new light housing, trim piece, and lens also interchanged. The existing one was old and yellowed, so this made for a huge improvement. All done from in the living space as well.

How do I replace a fan in a Broan bathroom fan/light combo Model 164-K


I just replace the whole thing if it has attic access. Have an electrician do it if you are not confident of your skill. Having the light work is not very helpful if the unit is shot. Clean and lubricate the fan shaft on your new one once a year and it will last a long time. You may be able to swap out just the fan if unplugs and it is not riveted in but you will have about the same time and money into it as replacement.

How do I open the fan to change the light bulb


Hi Roberta - you can view the manual for this fan here.

The lens snaps into position - there are no fasteners that need to be removed, etc. I believe that if you simply squeeze the long sides toward the center, it will release from the fixture.

When replacing the lamps, do not install a lamp greater than 100 watts in the main light socket or a 7 watt C-7 candelabra lamp in the night light socket.

I hope this helps & good luck!
