SOURCE: Heater fan only works on high speed 4.

sounds like the switch is bad. Test the power coming in to the connector and use jumpers to get the fan to operate at all 4 speeds. if it works then it the switch.

SOURCE: Is a 300 watt blower sufficient for a 72"x36" air tub?

the blower should be matched to the number of holes and diameter of the hole. there is a pretty precise science to the whole Air Tub product. if the blower is too large it will burn up and if it is too small you won't get the true benefits that an Air Tub offers.

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: I have replaced the motor


Did you actually flip the breaker all the way off, or did you just look at it? Sometimes it can be difficult to tell when a breaker has tripped - so it's a good practice to flip it all the way off, and then back on. (Flipping it all the way off resets the breaker and it has to be all the way off, not just in the middle).

Also check if you've got a wire disconnected, or broken. If you've never worked with electricity, I'd suggest calling someone who has. (I'd see if turning the breaker all the way off worked first).
To run down the problem, the switches will have to be pulled out of the gang box, and the wiring checked. It's possible to do this as a DIY project, but you must be very careful. Turn the breaker off first, pull them out, and inspect the wiring. If there is nothing obviously disconnected or broken, then a multimeter will be needed to check voltage on the wires. Again, if you've never done this before, it would be safer to call in an electrician, or maintenance tech.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting

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.

I just installed a Panasonic light/fan/heater to replace the old heat lamp in my bathroom. I installed lutron timer switches to control the vent and heater usng the preexistent wiring (15 A circuit). The...

you will need to determine what amps the timer switch is rated for, and what are the rated amps for the light/fan/heater. More then likely you will need to buy a new timer switch which is rated for the correct amps. Hope this helps Tim

A Bryant 3 way independent rocker switch with red, black and white wires for 3 lights in bathroom one switch not working can i replace it with a Broan Nutone P66V three function control

397bfdd.jpgLeviton triple switch
fe442eb.jpgNutone P66V

Nutone looks like an ordinary three-switch combo being marketed as a bathroom 'fan switch.'
The screws on the device would tell the story.

Look at the Leviton screws:
The switch has dark-colored screw on one side >> the hot from breaker always connects to dark screws.
Other side of switch has 3 silver-colored screws, but these can be brass colored screws > the wires to fan light and heater connect to each of these screws.

Most likely the Nutone switch is identical to the Leviton
I say this because the descriptor on Amazon describes it as a 'fan' switch.
It's being marketed as a bathroom fan-light combo switch >>> so it looks like an ordinary three-combo switch

How do you access the light on a broan fan/heater/light? This is a ceiling unit in a bathroom. It is a vent fan/heater/light combo.

Gently pull down, work it down slowly these tend to get dry over time and crack, If you do not see any exposed screws it is the basic pull down type. Not to insult your knowledge but make sure the fan is not on when you do this because the blades will be exposed.

Beeped but we don't even have a gas line!

your thinking along the right line, combo units seldom work as single function units. keep in mind that a CO detector need to be replaced every 5 years on average. look at the date code on the new unit to make sure it reads good until or replace by 2012 of better.

Not a 3 wire cable

It's asking for a ground wire. Run a small wire from the green wire on the fan and ground it to the electrical box.

Low air flow

most fan forced wall heaters do not move a lot of air. check the cfm rating on the heater. the fan sucks in air from the bottom and forces it up to the top where the element is. broan and nutone have good air flow.
