Mine was doing the same thing. I found it was coated with dust.
I took the blower out [unplugged it, and removed the single screw holding it to the box], took the face plate off [removed 4 or five screws] brushed the squirrel-cage fan blades using a narrow, long and stiff bristled brush, and reassembled it [used care to align the small plastic axle on the flap valve ] and reinstalled it. The vibration was greatly lessened and the fan was about as quiet as it had ever been.

The limit switch on the inducer has tripped. There are two wires that go to a small disk about the size of dime that has a small button in the center. Push this little button and you will feel a littl snap and the unit should fire up. Check all the manual reset limits as well. If the unit still won't start, jump the two wires by bypassing the limit switch. If it starts, then replace the switch. Bypassing the switch is only temporary and could lead to death if it is used as a permenant fix.

I also ran into this "problem". Installed five of the same fan last week and four of them have the light switched, one of them is on a 3-way switch. All the switched lights delay when turning them on while the "always on" light operated by pull string is just fine.
Could find no explanation in the user manual other than, as previous post mentions, new federal regulations that limit the wattage. One can assume that there is some sort of regulator inside the light fixture that needs to power up and/or run some sort of check to see how much power is being pulled by the lights.
The delay is super annoying, but I suppose all light kits are going to have this now. Thank you FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

Testimonial: "Thanks so much. Good to know that others are having the same problem."
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.
