  • 668RP is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died in 10 years My house was built 10 years ago and I presume this unit was installed then. After 5-7 years, we started hearing rattling noise, which was annoying for our main bathroom, and now the plastic assembly that supported the motor cracked apart. I don't know if 10 years is good for a pass mark for this kind of product, but the plastic parts they use are not really sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The fan works great The fan was easy to install, I waited until the fall to install it because of the hot attic. The fan should last for several years

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good I purchased these to replace fans that were just not good at keeping the steam out during a shower. They are doing a great job. It may get a little fogged up, but it dissipates quickly. The installation was pretty quick and simple for a regular DIY person.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Never seemed to sound quite right, although cfm was good This product was installed as part of a bathroom remodel/shower stall install to remove humidity. Although the 70 cfm unit did seem to vent the moisture in a timely manner, the unit was LOUD from the beginning. Then a year or so into use, it began to whine upon start-up, especially in the colder months (indoor use; just cooler than summer months). The whining would usually last about 30 seconds, then it run 'normally'. It finally stopped running altogether recently, and we are trying to decide if a replacement motor is worth it or just get a new/different fan. If technical or customer service reads this, please contact us with recommendations.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too loud I installed this in my basement bathroom that I was finishing, years ago, and it sounds like an aircraft is landing on the floor above.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 28 years and still going This fan was installed in a guest bathroom in 1987. It is still going strong. The noise level has increased somewhat and I plan to buy a new motor fan assembly and install it. Hopefully it will be good for another 28 years. I am probably not, so I will never know.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I purchased this for a guest bathroom. It's works great in getting the heat/steam out. It's a little louder than I am used to but I knew that in reading the specs and figured since it was for a guest bath that is rarely used, it would be fine. And it is!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very loud fan. Buyer beware! From day 1 the fan has a vibration problem. Installation is correct, it's a problem with the fan assembly. Fan is actually not mounted correctly to the motor, you can see the excessive wobble. Solution is to unplug the fan. Very dissatisfied .

  • If I need the exhaust fan to go out the side instead of the end?

    I am working on a replacement bathroom fan with light. This is a perfect fit but I need the exhaust fan to come out the side of the housing. Is there an option for this?
    Asked by: FionaIowa
    Thank you for your question on the model 668RP exhaust fan/light. There is only one version of the 668RP and there is no option for venting out of the side instead of the end. We would not have any other similar unit that would have the vent coming out of the side.

    How do you clean the inside of the fan vent?

    Asked by: ko
    Thank you for your question regarding your 668RP exhaust fan/light. First, remove the grille and lens assembly to gain access to the inside of the fan so you can vacuum out the inside. We also recommend that once a year you clean the blower wheel inside the fan housing. To see how the unit is put together, you can download the installation instructions from our website. You can also contact the Technical Services Department at 1-888-336-6151 for further assistance.

    Ground wire on replacement motor

    I got a replacement motor for my 668RP fan and it has a ground wire attached to it with a ring fitting on the end. The original motor did not have this wire. What is the appropriate place to attach the ground wire from the new motor? To the fan housing? I note that the overall wiring of the fan/light already has a ground wire which is attached to the house ground.
    Asked by: Midcentury
    Thank you for your question on the model 668RP exhaust fan motor. Just place the ring under any available screw.

    Retrofit installation

    Can this fan be installed in a retrofit installation without requiring access to the attic?
    Asked by: prodi
    Thank you for your question on the model 668RP exhaust fan/light. If you install the 668RP without access from above, you will need to cut out more ceiling than would normally be needed and repair the ceiling after the unit is installed. The “XN” series of fans and fan/lights are made for retrofit installation from below.
