Most if not all exhaust fan flappers have a spring loaded door that will open when when the exhaust comes out and the springs will allow the door to shut completely. Check your local home store for replacement springs, if new springs are not available you may need to replace the part of the vent with the flapper on it, not very labor intensive but it is time consuming, as you need to remove whatever is being vented, like an over the range microwave or a vent hood.

The fan motor works, but is not venting the room


It might take some work, but you should be able to get at the exhaust vent by removing the grill, light fixture and fan. Might be best to try and find where it is vented to, hopefully an outside area. If you can, there are some small over the counter type of things you can use to try and clean the vent. One is a window brush that is on a long pole, found in the window cleaning area of the Home Depot. This is a soft brush that will not damage (famous last words) the exhaust vent. There is also a flapper door of sorts that closes at the fan when the fan is not running. Might be that the flapper is stuck in the closed position. Good luck!!

My parents had a Broan exhaust fan installed in their bathroom and water is leaking from it. Any ideas on what this could be?


Sounds like a condisation problem. Check the exhaust tube for low spots, and also check if the exhaust tube is isulated.

Have a broan n688 ceiling exhaust fan in bathroom and now it takes a couple of minutes to actually start, finally making a whirring noise before coming on. Solution?


First turn the power to the fan OFF. Take it down from the ceiling by removing the screws holding the cover on. Then remove the screws holding it to the ceiling. Then unscrew the screw caps that twist (connect) the wires from fan motor to the house wiring. Do a general clean up on the fan. Use an old paint brush to get in the hard to get at places. Rotate the fan by hand. If it does not rotate freely, put some oil on the shaft where it goes into the motor, and put some on where the shaft comes out the back. If it still does not rotate freely, buy a replacement and install it.

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.

Range vent damper noise


Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.
