When the fan is off, there seems to be cold air coming out of the unit from the outside. It looks like a some sort of vent needs to be faced in the right direction. How do I do this?

The reflector is an odd shape, with a bracket. It would be better to give you the size of the incandescent that will fit, and then you can do an actual comparison in the store. First, the bulb must be listed by a certified body i.e UL, CSA, ETL) and be marked suitable for enclosed fixtures. The LED you purchase needs to the same shape as the A19 (2-3/8" diameter x 4-3/8' length). The maximum wattage for an LED = 19 Watts. I hope this is helpful, but if you have questions call us BEFORE you purchase a LED bulb at 888-336-6151. Thanks again.

First, you have to snap out the lens cover. Use a flat head screw drive or butter knife and insert between the lens cover and grille. GENTLY push it inward until is snaps out. Next, remove the bulb. You will then see a nut that holds the reflector in place. Unscrew that and the reflector will drop down as well as the grille cover. It's little heavy. Remember to consider the bulb socket . . push that back through the hole. once the complete grille and lens assembly are removed, this will expose the inside. Be sure the power is turned off . If you'd like to trouble shoot any problems, dial 888-336-6151 and speak with Technical Support. Thank you.

The lens is a snap-in type cover. It's not visible on this photo, but the lens has two 'tabs' on the long side. We recommend using a flat head screw driver or a butter knife and insert if between the lens and grille. Then 'gently' push it is to snap it out. Use a little caution so as not to drop the cover.

Thank you for your question. Broan-NuTone offers a wide variety of sensing fan/light units. However, our Heat/Vent/Light combination models are only switch operated. A heating unit with a light is available, and it comes with a two-function rocker switch. You could get a timer switch with a separate on/off switch to operate the two functions (VS68WH-15 minutes timer and rocker) or (VS66WH-60 minute timer and rocker). If you’d like additional information, just call our Customer Service Department at 888-336-3948. Thanks, again.

To replace the light bulb, remove the lens by gently depressing sides and pull down. Use a maximum 100-Watt incandescent bulb.
To re-install the lens, hook the tabs on one end of the lens into the slot in the grille. Lift other end of lens up and
snap into place.

Question

Why are the dimensions provided in the answer to Pat's questions so different than those listed in specifications?

Asked by
James
Dallas, Texas
about 100 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan with Light and Heater on
February 27, 2014
The specifications list dimensions for the 765HL of 14.04 x 10.5, smaller than those offered in the answer to his question.

Also, since these fan housings are mounted using extension rails, installation requires access to ceiling joists on both sides of the unit. How can the mounting be done without cutting a large hole to expose both joists and then fitting a drywall "donut" over the unit housing and doing the taping, bedding, texturing and painting?

The dimensions of the grille is 17.5 x 11.5 inches.
The dimensions of the metal can/housing are: 16 x 10.25 x 5.875 inches.
The website is incorrect. We are working with Home Depot to get that fixed as quickly as possible.

Peggy,

Get in contact with Nutone. They have had problems with the heating element on this unit. I've replaced mine 4 times in the 5 months that its been installed, and the one that is in there now is currently out. I've emailed the company AGAIN and I am waiting for a response. If the heater fan doesn't turn on right away, the heating element burns out. Its a constant problem with this particular product.

Good Luck!

I recently installed this unit in may existing bathroom that had just the fan. 14/2 wire was used on existing fan. I removed the switch and covered ends using wire nuts. Basically I disabled the use of this 14/2 wire. Since a separate 20amp circuit is required I re-wired with 12/2 and 12/3 wire. The 12/3 is needed from the unit to the switch since you have three functions to control, light, fan and heater.
Hope this helps.

Asked by
Taebo

It depends on what size circuit breaker you have and the other items that are on that circuit. If you have a GFCI circuit that just serves that bathroom and is wired with 12-2 wire, you should be able to pull from that circuit. If it is 14-2 wire, then you may run into problems with running the heater and a high-load item such as hair dryer at the same time without tripping the breaker. If your existing bathroom power is run from a circuit that serves other bathrooms or bedrooms (which is typical) then you will likely run into problem when running multiple items at the same time. The box specifically states that a 20-amp dedicated circuit breaker is required and while I do not believe it needs to be a dedicated circuit, it needs to be a very low-load circuit. I have mine wired through a 15-amp circuit that only serves the bathroom GFCI but it was previously wired with 14-2 wire. Mine will trip the breaker when the heater is running and a hair dryer...solution: Don't run the heater when you have to use a hair dryer. For your question as to if one circuit will handle two units...I think that would be similar to my heater and hair dryer scenario, so you're going to be pushing the limits of the circuit, especially if you're using the lights and maybe even the fan at the same time as the heater.

Since this unit contains a heater, it is necessary to have a 20 amp dedicated circuit.

Thank you for your question on the NuTone model 765HL. We have many fan/light units that are UL listed to be installed in the tub/shower, but when it includes a heater then you CAN NOT install it inside the enclosure. It actually needs to be outside the enclosed area and away from the shower, approximately 2 feet.

The HFL includes a CFL bulb with the 2-pin base instead of the normal screw base on the HL model. I would recommend the 765HL, you can install a CFL bulb if you want (I actually did with mine), but you are not locked into that 2-pin base like you would be with the HFL.
