We have a Broan/Nutone 763RLN Ceiling Fan/Light. The motor seems to be laboring and I think the interior needs to be cleaned. However, despite trying, the unit does not seem to pull down from the ceiling in order to clean it. Does this model have a pulldown feature? and if so, is there a "trick" to it.? Or, do I have to buy a new fan/light?

The grille is held in place by the reflector. The reflector is hidden by the the lens. The first step is to remove the lens, then you will remove the light bulb. You will see one wing nut above the light socket. If you unscrew that the reflector and the grille should come down. The replacement motor assembly for the 763 RLN is the S0503B000, if you are looking for a little more power you could also purchase the S0504B000

I want to install a ceiling fan and have discovered wood lath + plaster backed by some other wood. Can I screw into that? No attic.

I'm a professional Handyman and install fans a lot. The most important thing is to be sure the fan mount is sturdy. You can get pros at Home Depot and Lowe's to help you buy the right stuff. Many people just take down a light and put up a fan. NOT GOOD! ... if the electrical box isn't really sturdy, the weight of the fan and over time, could cause the fan to fall down. Your description of "what you discovered" isn't clear enough. Offhand, I would say 'yes'. I only charge about $65 to install fans, so it might be worth it to you to find a handyman to do it for you. Try Craigslist. If you feel you can do it, 'google it' -install a ceiling fan. Try watching videos too.

I have a model 763RLN where the instructions indicate a max.100W bulb but does not indicate the type of bulb. Is it a special type ?

That is possible,but usually they refer to a regular incondescent bulb with a filament.Screw in type.
You may use a CFL in there,easily. 27 W.
Warm white or cool white one.
100 W. bulbs should be not available,soon.

There is no suction from the fan on my 763rl. What is the problem?

The exhaust may be plugged with leaves or branches on the out side, where it exits your house.

Is there a quieter, alternative motor that can be installed in a NuTone 763RLN bathroom fan?

I just installed one of these; the directions were not really helpful, and I'm fairly handy doing these things. Anyway, the 'specs' say this is 2 sones, and mine is pretty quiet. I did have to tighten the acorn nut that is under the light bulb, that holds the light fixture to the rest of the unit pretty tight. My noise was coming from vibration, not the fan 'noise'.

Need wiring explained to me for nutone 763rln ceiling fan-light
I'n not quite sure how the other answers above answer this question about wiring, but here's the scoop. I will assume you have ONE switch to turn on the fan/light, and it is an already existing switch, and the old fan/light has wiring run to it. FIRST, be sure the wiring run to the fan is NOT hot; test it with a tester ($10-$15 @ hardware stores) - you should own one - they come in handy. You never know how someone else wired the switch; they might have interrupted the neutral (white) wire and not the hot (black) wire. If the black wire in the old fan is still hot, shut off the breaker before working on it. You will see a small screw on the bottom inside of the fan box; remove it,take out the fan assembly, and it will expose the wiring to the two (one black; one white) plugs. Strip back about an inch of all 4 wires and twist the two white ones together; do the same for the black and the blue. Now you have 3 wires to connect to the house wiring running to the fan. On the outside of the fan box, very near the wiring, you will see two 1/2" knock-outs; they are about the size of a nickle, with a slot in the middle. Stick a flat blade screwdriver in one of the slots, and twist it back and forth until it breaks out. If you don't have one, buy a wire holder (DANG! for the life of me, I don't know what they are called!) that fits into the knockout hole, and holds the nomex wire securely. Give yourself enough wire sticking through to be able to work with. Strip about 3/4" off the black and white wire. Twist the black and blue wires you tied together earlier around the black wire clockwise, all the way up to the tip, and secure with the proper size wire nut (use one with METAL insert, no plastic, thank you!). Do the same with the white wires to the white nomex home wire. Ditto the green wire to the bare ground. I've found these come with barely understandable directions. What the directions don't tell you is that you need to have the edge of the metal box nearly flush with the ceiling. The outside edges of the light fit inside the plastic housing; THEN, plug in the white plug from the light into the outlet, Now, unscrew the acorn nut from the long screw sticking down. Put the light fixture up, and affix the acorn nut, and tighten it. I assume no liability for any of the above directions; if you are not sure about anything, hire a qualified person to do the install for you. Electricity can kill. Proceed with caution; following all the above directions does not guarantee that you will not be hurt or injured.

I purchased a Broan 744 light/fan combo. I want to wire the light and fan to separate switches. Do I use single pole switches and how do I wire up the switches?

Here is a link to the instruction manual. Page three shows a wiring diagram for separate switches.

This is the Switch NuTone Broan recommends for that fan.

New Broan fan rattles

I would take it back for exchange...
($159... is high end pricy... Amazon = $168 (worse)).

Old ... tired fans can dry out... gather dust.

Their life can be significantly extended with
fresh lube... As for me...
I've learned to just find & buy a NEW MOTOR.

But a new FAN... Outrageous!

Take it back
... Broan-NuTone Nutone Is a QUALITY
FAN... Expect quality.

Broan nutone 721

If you remove the the lens there should be a model number online. There are several places online that sells parts. The 721 is a Broan part if yours says Nutone then you will need to try to find that model number.
