  • 9960 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I've been using the light/nightlight/heater fixture for years to take the chill out of the bathroom on cold mornings. The heater worked so well that I would just run it for a few minutes at a time. Then my mom came to stay for the winter, and she ran it for so long that the built in device that protects it from overheating stopped working properly ... it would shut the heater off after only a few seconds. I had to replace the heating element to get my heater working again. So, just make sure not to leave it running for more than 10-15 minutes. If my mom comes back to stay, I'm going to install a timer on the switch so that it will shut off on its own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fix that cold bathroom This 1500 watt in-ceiling heater cured our cold bathroom syndrome. It requires a dedicated circuit. It works so well, we only have to have it on for a few minutes.

  • The heater just went out. How do I fix it? Is there a fuse or would I need to replace the heater?

    Asked by: Bo
    After about 10 years, my heater stopped working (it would turn on and then shut off after 10 seconds or so). Luckily I looked at this website to learn about the cause of the problem. But unfortunately, I trusted "Toohandy's" reply. He gave the wrong part number in his reply, which caused me to waste a great amount of time and aggravation trying to install the wrong part. The correct part number to replace the heating element assembly in the model 9960 ceiling heater/light fixture is 0969B000. To be safe, I recommend that you confirm the part number using the handy search tool in the Broan website before purchasing any replacement part. Once I had the correct part, the replacement was simple ... remove the heater's fan/motor housing from the fixture, replace the heating element assembly, and put the heater back into the fixture. All you need is a phillips head screw driver and some common sense. The hardest part was the final step, replacing the grill on the fixture.

    Heater motor shuts off within 15 seconds after turning on

    The model is 9960-R02. The label on the heater motor shows model 665RP, 660RP, 605RP, 9965-R02, 9965F-R02, 9960-R02, 9905-R02. After a few weeks used, we noticed the heater consistently turned off within 15 seconds after being turned on. With the cover opened and the heater turned on, we observed a light reflected on top of the heater motor in the housing unit. It went away when the heater shut itself off within 15 seconds after it was turned on.

    can we use a thermostat with this product and maintain a temp of 70

    Asked by: cougar
    Thank you for the question on the model 9960 heater/light. It is possible to use a thermostat to control the heater portion of the 9960. Please remember that the 9960 is to be used as supplemental heat only and not for the main heating source in a room.

    Replacing light bulbs

    How exactly does the glass lens open for access to burned out bulbs
    Asked by: MajorK
    Thank you for your question on the model 9960 heater/light/night light. There is a plastic bezel around the lens that has two tabs on it. You would need to push the tabs in towards the lens and pull down. The lens and bezel assembly should swing down for access to the light bulbs. For further assistance please contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151.
