  • QKN60 is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet Installed in a small bathroom to replace a noisier older model. Very easy to both remove and install the fan(s). My only complaint is the stupid spring clips. Try as I might those clips refuse to go in easily for me. I used the new cover but you could easily opt to keep the old one.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy and doesn't pull air out of bathroom Purchased and had a qualified work person install. Took my first shower and the entire bath filled up with fog...so what is wrong? The fan is a little quieter than the old one but not that much...was expecting it to be much quieter. I purchased 2 but the other one is going back. Unless I get an feedback on how to make it work I am going to have it pulled out and take this one back also. Love to know how to make it do its job.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's OK by today's standards I think by today's standards, this is a pretty loud fan. I just finished installing 2 different NuTone fans: the 2.0 sone ARN80HD and this 2.5 sone QKN60 upgrade kit. Now that I know the sound difference between 2.0 vs 2.5 sones, I would recommend anybody installing a new fan should look for 2.0 sones or less. Anything greater than 2.0 sones is too loud. Having said all that, this is a very simple upgrade kit, and it works. It took me about 15 minutes to open up the package, bring in a ladder, pull out the old fan, wipe off all the dust in in the existing metal fan box, and snap in the new fan, and plug it in. I live in a very old home with fans that were really loud. This QK60N upgraded my "695-R01 N" fan. I'm happy I did the upgrade. The reduction in noise compared to the old fan is noticeable, but it's not something that would get you very excited about. My wife barely noticed the noise difference. But I definitely did. This new one is also a lower/deeper fan sound whereas the old one had a higher pitch whine. The old one was so loud I couldn't hear my smartphone audio at full blast when I'm playing music / radio in the bathroom. This one's a bit better. I would say this upgrade fan "takes the edge off" the old super annoying fan. I'll also note HomeDepot had a "QKN60" and a "QKN60s" listed on their website. I'm not sure what the difference was but I think the "s" meant it was shipping from their warehouse only. In anycase my local HomeDepot had a bunch of QKN60's in stock so I bought that from the brick-and-mortar.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time! It's really easy to install, unfortunately getting it to work is a whole different story. It would only hum but not spin. It's going back for a refund!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from DOES not fit the 695 I'm sure it's a reasonably good product, but it Does Not fit the NuTone 695 - although the spec says it will. I just wasted couple hours of my time :-\

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a replacement without taking apart I actually took the product apart so as to use the new motor and reassemble in my original unit. I did this because it is impossible for me to find a product that will work in the space available in my home without doing major reconstruction of the space in my bathroom. The fan is more powerful, but still the same noise level, if not a bit louder, but not an issue for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product replaced another one This is a review update. I purchased this replacement fan for one gone bad. The motor the QKN60 is a lot quieter than the one I had before. Now they have redesigned the grille covers so the retainers for the spring clips don't break off. Well done. Now I must give this product two thumbs up.

  • This kit does not fit with my 696N, the measurments of the housing are different. Is there another kit that will work with a 696N that measures 7"X8"?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    I have discovered that this replacement will work only with 696N D-units, with the appropriate tabs and the plug cut-out in the corner. This will not fit 696N B-units with alternative tabs, a side-centered plug cut-out, and a screw that holds one side of the fan unit in place. Unfortunately none of their specifications on the Website or the packaging or the instructions mention this, although the information is stamped on the metal housing.
