  • ARN80HD is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work I bought two fans. One for each bath. Installation very easy. The fan is no more than a vent. When I first powered it on it seemed like it was working in a very low speed mode like it had low voltage. Tested it with my VOM and it was receiving a full 120 volt. I held a BIC lighter just to the side of the vent. It has such little air movement that it will not even distort the flame even when its within 2 inches of the vent. Thinking I have a defective fan, I tested the other new one in a wall outlet. Still no capacity. When installed absolutely moves no air or will not clear the bathroom at all. Useless. Very disappointing when you cut a hole in you new bath and basically its there for looks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grill will not attach and stay on housing There must be a defect with the wires that attach the grill to the fan housing. Ours will not hold the grill on and it falls off. If I cannot get this resolved I may have to return it to Home Depot. Also the ARN80HD assumes the outlet vent connection is to the right hand of the fan housing. Our outlet vent connection is to the left hand side of the housing. It would be nice if you modified the design so the installer could place the outlet vent on the right or left hand side. Thanks

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER QUIET This is a great fan. It is so quiet I hardly know it is on sometimes. I love the sturdy metal grill instead of the plastic ones that so many bathroom vent fans have. This metal one will last and can be painted again if ever needed. So it is quiet, pulls air, and works great. If it lasts a long time I will purchase it again when and if that time arrives.

  • mounting ARN80HD to ceiling grid

    Does the MHB4 mounting kit allow the ARN80HD to be mounted to a ceiling grid (Armstrong
    Asked by: herrbag
    Thank you for your question on the model ARN80HD exhaust fan and MHB4 hanger bracket. We have no products that can be installed directly to a drop ceiling. All of our products need to be connected to the hard ceiling in one fashion or another. The MHB4 is designed to be nailed or screwed into the ceiling joist.

    This fan (ARN80HD) has a reference icon on the box that says 24/7.

    What does 24/7 refer to?
    Asked by: Steve B.
    Thank you for your question. 24/7 refers to the usage. The ARN80HD is designed for continuous operation. For further assistance, contact Technical Support at 888-336-6151.
