Very disappointed in this product. Rated 1 by
  No, I do not recommend this product.
I had the fan fixture installed and it is quiet, I must say that. However, after about 6 months use, the light will intermittently shut off. I must let it sit for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. There is no timing as to when it will decide to shut off. Sometimes it's 6 minutes, sometimes 10 minutes. Needless to say, it makes my morning showers quite interesting. I have had several people look at it and it totally baffles them. Unfortunately, I was unable to return it within the warrantee period due to a life changing event, so I will replace it with something else as soon as I am able.

Noisey Rated 2 by

Installed three of these units in less than three months in 2012. One in a 3/4 bath as a replacement in my own home and two in bathroom remodels for clients. All three are noisey and rattle. They have all been dissassembled and I have had to install sticky felt pads through out to rectify the problem. Not quite sure I understand because I have used Broan products for years in many new homes and remodels and have never had a problem, but these seem to be suffering from an engineering problem. FYI-If your going to install a bath fan in any bathroom, DO NOT install anything less than a 70 cfm. I don't care how small the bath is or what the manufacturers say. Spend the extra money and get a good quality one, trust me. I still am a big Broan fan, we have had great success with their products, just not this one.

Product does the job Rated 2 by

The plastic cover keeps breaking where it fits into the slot. I got a replacement one under warranty but I only removed it one time and there is already a crack that keeps growing. This cover will be garbage soon too. They wanted me to check the light bulb wattage and it is within the recommended wattage.

Cheap and NOISY Rated 2 by

Why would anyone want a very loud fan? Sure, it is cheap and people want to try it due to price. After installation, it is so loud, you wish you had NEVER HEARD OF BROAN and gone with something better. The plastic cover resonates, metal pings, and noise STATES CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!
