Question

Would this upgrade fan kit replace my present 6 inch thru the wall fan with a fan blade on it ,instead of a squirrel cage fan as shown in the picture

Asked by

October 13, 2011
I have a 6 inch round opening now for my present fan that goes thru the wall instead of up thru the ceiling.
This unit looks like it is to peplace a square or rectangular opening.
Would it work for me as I have described my old fan unit opening is round?
Thank you

The replacement plate for this kit is approx. 7.875" x 7". If you have the clearance you may be able to retrofit it. Without seeing your setup, I would suggest taking a photo & measurements to your local Home Depot for advice.

You should also be aware that this unit is intended to up-grade the following Broan-NuTone fans: 670, 671, 688, 689, 693, 695, and 696N.

this system comes with 2 different size plates that the actual fan motor would be fastened to. one is a square shape, and the other is a rectangular shape. Unless you're replacing the plate/motor on one of the nutone models named on the box, you'll have to measure you existing fan housing (preferably removing it in advance). Mine measured approximately 8"x8". In the end, after some adjusting and manual labor, I ended up using the rectangular plate and it fit right into the previous housing. with enough clearance for the fan to operate without impediment. You must also consider that if your existing fan has a power plug (like mine), the holes in the plate(s) for the electrical outlet and screws (to hold the plate in place in the housing) most likely will not align properly. you'll have to do some simple wiring and figure out a way to secure the plate in the housing. I punched a new hole in the housing and screwed the plate securely in place. A pro probably would have the proper tools, but i got it done basically with a screwdriver, a hammer, steel drill bit (to punch the hole) and electrical tape.

Hello Kim, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.

This replacement kit fits a variety of the most common NuTone fans, but the 8832 series is not one of them. Here is a quote from the manual : “This unit must be installed into fan housings that are marked “D-Housing” or “690” Series. Other fan housings cannot be substituted. For use only with Broan fan models 670, 671, 688, 689 and Nautilus fan models N671, N688 and NuTone fan models 693, 695, 696N.”

For your unit, individual replacement parts are available from NuTone at this site:
http://parts.broan-nutone.com/nuton...

I hope this helps,
Newf.

Hi, 'actiondon'. Thanks for your questions about the 690NT Up-grade Kit. This kit is designed to work with several NuTone, Broan, or Nautilus economy exhaust fans. If you have a unit manufactured by another company, I can not be certain it will work. The following is a list of models it can be used with:
NuTone: 693, 695, 696N Will work if housing dims are 7-1/2" x 7-1/4" or 8" x 7-1/4"
Broan: 670, 671, 688, 689 Will work if housing dims are 7-1/2" x 7-1/4"
Nautilus: N671, N688 Will work if housing dims are 7-1/2" x 7-1/4"
You also asked about the actual width of the fan. If you are referring to the diameter of the blower wheel, it is 5-1/12". If you have further questions and would like to speak with a Technical Support person, please dial 888-336-6151 (8:30 - 5:00 EST). Thanks, again, and have a good day !

Doubtful, the 8863rp has a housing of 9in by 9in and this kit is designed to upgrade fans with housings around 7 in by 7 in. Even if you could fit the motor in place somehow, this motor moves 60 cubic feet of air per minute and the 8863rp's motor moves 100 cubic feet per minute. The part you need is S97017705 from Broan-NuTone.

If you want a silent, or almost silent, fan then you would need to purchase a model from our QT series fans.

There are two differnt housing plates in the box to choose from. One plate is 8" x 7.25" and has the plug opening on the side. This one fits perfectly for the 696N fans. The other plate in the box is 7.5" x 7.25" and has the plug opening in the corner. If your current plates are one of these sizes, it should work.

I replaced my AUBREY MFG model 7550 with a NuTone 696N from local Home Depot for $15.00 Had to use the AUBREY original housing plate though because the NuTone plate was bigger. I just switched the fan and motor and so far so good. It's just a wit bit louder than the AUBREY because it's rated 4.0 scones when the AUBREY was 2.5 scones but it's just for the laundry area. Take pictures with your phone before disassembly the units. Makes things easier when reassembling the fan back. Good luck.

Good morning. Thanks you for your question. THe 690NT Up-Grad Kit is designed for a group of exhaust fans, but not for the 658. While this model has a motor for the heat side and the vent side, the 609NT will not work. If you go to www.broan.com and go under Shop For Parts, you can get the vent-side motor assembly. I hope this is helpful. However, if you have additional questions, call Customer Service at 888-336-3948. Thanks.

I don't know if your fan is a Broan, Nutone or Nautilus model, but that number is not listed as compatible for any of those brands. However, call Nutone technical assistance at 1-888-336-6151 for advice which might result in being able to use this kit, or receiving advice on another good way to fix yours.

NuTone 693, 695, & 696N - The kit will work if your housing measures either 7½” x 7¼” or 8” x 7¼”.
