  • 696N is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Service Your service was the absolute BEST I have had in purchasing on line, regardless of the product type. I am not in the building trades, just a home owner who needed to replace the exhaust fan in the bathroom. I ordered the product on line on Sunday night and expected it to arrive by week's end. It arrived Tuesday. Two day service for the regular shipping price cannot be beaten. If I have further needs I will return toyour site.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to Beat the Quality! The new unit replaced a "like" model that had been in place and functioning for almost 27 years. It was quiet and operated very efficiently. I would not think twice about purchasing additional units in the future.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from power point plug in is out of phase with older units The fan in my wife's bath room is very noise? Hence, after a considerable period I bit the bullet and purchased two potential replacements??? A 696N which has the same box dimensions as the present unit and a QuicKit. Alas I was about to learn the hard way neither unit will operate in the original Nutone Fan housing. As the power connection on the original unit is in the center of the discharge side and the power connection for the original unit is located in the cornet of the new units. Your truly now has to possible return both to Home Depot or change the original body out for the 696N. And return the QuicKit unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice product The fan was easy to install and took less than one hour to install two of them. I would recommend this fan to people who need to replace their Braun fan. It was not quite as quiet as I hoped it would be but not any noisier than the old one. Grille was much nicer than the old one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from installation problems/installer ignorance[private contractor] bigger pics/words so installer/or homeowner can 'properly install ceiling fan [ie. on ours- cheap but good fan installed , for $150.00, but contractor didnot tighten ring clamp or use adapter as on the box[small print] so after this winters heavy snow on roof blocked venting,fan pushed damp air into attic, ruining ceiling plaster,etc!!!!!!!!!. now we bought a bigger fan , no adapter needed-$80-from another company-we will install, not a stupid contracter,hopefully to cover the mess the other made, even though[ because of small bathroom] we really don't need a bigger, working one.we will do this when it gets cooler in the attic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Replaced a worn out NuTone exhaust fan. Looked at other brands, but with the fact that the old NuTone lasted 30+ years, just had to buy the same brand.

  • Does the grille snap off for cleaning?

    Asked by: Sue
    Yes! There is a clip on either side, about 5 inches long, that holds the grill in place. Just pull the grill gently away from the ceiling and slide the clips out. Suggestion: Have a vacuum cleaner handy and running to suck up all the dust clumps that will drop out. Suggestion 2: Position your step stool slightly to the side.

    Right side wall mount air discharge.

    My location in the bathroom requires a right side air discharge thru-the wall to the outside of the bathroom. The air damper will not close, (no longer closes without the help of gravity). Is a spring available to close the damper, or will the function correctly without gravity closure? I am also installing your WVK2A kit. What are my options or what should I do?
    Asked by: Jack
    You may want to consider using the LP80N. This low profile fan is designed for use in a wall and may better suit your application. You could still use the WHVK2A. Please contact our Technical Service department at 888-336-6151for further assistance.

    The plug has two straight prongs...does it matter which way they are oriented? So... one prong isn't wider than the other like a standard plug

    Asked by: Kevin
    I'm not an electrician, but if you don't have a polarized plug (one prong wider than the other) it typically does not matter, just plug it in.

    Is this fan energy star certified?
    Asked by: Glen
    You run it so infrequently, does it matter? Question is, will this unit be more efficient. I found that it moved twice the air that the original did. I could run it for half the time and still exhaust the bath.
