SOURCE: QT 100L replacement

Forget it. I also had the same problem with the QT100L. Cannot buy this unit and the replacement unit is the LS100L by Nutone/Broan. Good news: it is more powerful 110CFM and the housing is the same size. Bad news, the motor assy is completely different and it cannot be mounted in the existing housing. To install the new unit, you will need to cut the ceiling around the fan housing and install the new housing and wire it as well. Be aware that the wiring comes into the housing 180 degrees from the old QT100L unit. That means I hope you have enough romex to reach the hole. My advice is to get another unit from any other company because the quality sucks. It will be as much work to install any other brand as the LS100L.

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.

SOURCE: Problems with exhaust fan NuTone Model LS 100SE

The C-frame motor for LS100SE (P/N 62345) is no longer manufactured, and no replacement is specified. I checked with Nutone customer service if the motor for LS100 (P/N 89169) will work. They said the blower housing is the same between the units, so it should work mechanically, but the plug configuration is different requiring some electrical changes.

SOURCE: I purchased a reoplacemetn motor for my

The additional wires are for a starting capacitor, not included with the motor. The easiest way to hook-up is to order the Outlet Assembly p/n 88617000 (available at Coastal Tech Supply.) The assembly includes the capacitor, connector, and shroud; and will replace the existing outlet assembly in the housing. Minor electrical work is required to remove the old assembly and install the new one.

SOURCE: My Broan Nutone Bathroom fan

NuTone 0696B000 is the Replacement Motor Assembly. Search that in Google and you can find a number of sites to purchase it from. We've replaced our fan motor 4 or 5 times over the years. It just gets too much use. Very simple to replace, you plug it in and it saves having to replace the entire unit because they don't make anything that fits that same space.

Nutone bath fan how do you clean the vent

Usually the vent cover pulls straight down, and is held in place with 2 V-shaped metal spring wires.
Squeeze each spring wire together to release cover from ceiling box.
Use vacuum to clean vent fan housing. Some vent fans can be disassembled and motor housing removed for cleaning. Do NOT use water on electric motor. Simple vacuum, or dry toothbrush cleaning is good enough.
Spay tiny bit of WD40 on the fan motor shaft or add tiny dab of white grease if desired.
The plastic cover can be scrubbed with soap and water, rinse to remove soap residue, and when dry, paint with aerosol spray paint using 3-5 very light coats applied in 5 minute intervals.

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.
