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.

Tip

Broan Bathroom Fan Care and Cleaning


<p>One of the most common <b>bathroom fans</b> is the <b>Broan brand ventilation fan</b>. These fans come in many configurations and variations. Because of the environment that these fans are in and the placement of these fans they will get very dirty over a period of time and will need to be cleaned from time to time. <b>Cleaning bathroom fans </b>can be fairly easy if you have a few tips about how to do it.<br /> <p> <br> <p>To clean the fan the inside of the fan must be accessed first. To get to the inside of the fan the cover must be removed. Most of the covers simply will pull downward and away from the ceiling. There are a couple of springs, one on each side the snap the cover up and hold it in place. On some models there can be a screw that holds the cover. It will be visible right in the center of the cover. If no screw is visible then you can assume that it is a spring type cover. If there is a light in the cover you can remove the plug and the light will come right with the cover.<br> <p> <br> <p>After pulling the cover down simply squeeze the springs together slightly and the cover will come completely out and you can take it to your sink to wash it. Then take a vacuum or a damp rag and clean the inside of the fan compartment. If you look closely you will see that the fan assembly has a plug that can be pulled and the fan assembly can be removed by either removing a couple of screws or by placing a screw driver between the fan assembly and the side of the box and snapping out the fan assembly.<br> <p> <br> <p>Once you have the fan assembly out you can then use compressed air, like you use on your computer keyboard, or a damp cloth to clean the fan assembly. The compressed air works the best on the blower wheel and in some cases a small screw driver may be needed to remove caked on dust inside the fins of the fan.<br> <p> <br> <p>With you vacuum, you can now clean out the rest of the box and even into the vent hose a little bit. Be careful not to destroy the flapper, as that is what stops cold air from being pulled back into your home while the fan is off. Wipe down the box to complete the cleaning.<br> <p> <br> <p>The fan can now be reassembled by reversing everything and placing it all back as it was before you removed it. Be sure to remember to plug the fan motor back into the socket. The light may also need to be plugged in if you have a light in the cover.<br> <p> <br> <p>You will now have a nice clean fan again. <br> <p> <br> <p>If you want to <b>replace the fan</B> because it is broken worn out or noisy you can often <b>buy replacement bathroom fan parts</B> or even a new fan that will fit in the same box. Upgrades are available to fit existing boxes also. To find <b>bathroom fan upgrades</B> and replacements go to <a href="http://www.broan.com/">www.broan.com</A><br> <p> <br> <p>At <a href="http://www.broan.com/">www.broan.com</A> you can also <b>order <span> </SPAN>broan replacement parts</B>, <b>download broan manuals</B>, and get <b>installation tips for your broan fan</B>.

How to oil a broan bathroom fan motor


The fan motor is pre-oiled and sealed so it can not be oiled if fan motor is squeeling then motor replacement is the only option. You can get replacement motors which is usually cheaper than buying a whole new fan. Will need to know the model # of broan fan. I hope this information was helpful. Please rate the information given. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Attic fans


I just fixed a Broan-353 with a similar problem - the fan was short-cycling, turning on and off within a minute or less.

These fans have a thermostat which is designed to turn off 10 degrees below where it's set to turn on. Apparently, one failure mode is this temperature delta stops working I've had this happen twice, each time after about 3 years.

Replacement thermostats are available from Broan for about $30 http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop It's a 10 minute repair if you have easy access to the fan.
