  • 765HFL is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater quit way too quickly. We had the bathroom remodeled, and the contractor installed this light/fan/heater. Not a bad unit, when it worked. (Not really thrilled that it only uses expensive light bulbs.) But not bad until the heater stopped working. Lasted maybe a year and change. The downstairs one, a different brand, is still working from when we moved in 20 years ago. From the other reviews, it sounds like the heater is known to be faulty.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor heating element I bought this exhaust fan specifically because it had a heater. The heating element quit working within a few months. I am very disappointed in this product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heater failed on 2nd day of use Just bought a house and the previous owners had one of these installed about 6 months ago while remodeling the house to sell. It worked great!....for one day. On the 2nd day living in the new house. It stopped working. I give it 2 stars cause I’ve never seen a bathroom exhaust fan that has a heater built in...cool idea.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater Failure 2 years since full bathroom remodel. Issue #1- Nutone heater failed. Issue #2- None!!! Paid more for this heater because Home Depot said it was the best. My son has a competitor ceiling heater/fan in his bathroom. 12 years and not issues. Broan/Nutone, what are you going to do for me!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater not working, known issue, no fix without receipt. The heater is a known problem on these units and do not last. Customer Service will do nothing for you, as I have just spoken to them, unless you have a receipt. I could not find my receipt and it would be nearly impossible for a person to keep track of every receipt for everything they purchase. Word of caution if you buy this product, keep your receipt, you will probably need it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater died in less than 2 years I had the unit installed by my contractor in March of 2016 during a complete bathroom remodel. Now it blows just cold air. Unacceptable. The prior one lasted over 20 years.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Our Heater Lasted Longer Than Most, But Still Died. We’ve been very disappointed woth our light/heater/fan. Three years ago, the unit was installed by our contractor. Within six months, the light died. This week, the heater died. Our bathroom is only 5’x7’, and we only use the heater a couple of times a week at the most, a couple of months a year. Though the heater was sufficient while it worked, the exhaust often wasn’t powerful enough to keep our small room from fogging up. We won’t be buying another NuTone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heating Element Only Lasted 1 1/2 Years Heater worked OK during first winter. Went to start the heater at the beginning of the second winter and the heating element was broken so it only blows cold air. Unacceptably poor quality item.

  • The heater fan run, but there is no heat

    Model 765HFL vent fan. We just put it in and it work fine for two days. Now the heater fan runs, but here is no heat.
    Asked by: C Haldis
    The company is sending us a replacement heater unit. I am surprised that this is such a prevalent issue. I would like to see what the nutone has to say about this. Let's see if they post a response explaining the problem.

    Why would heater element quit working so fast?

    We installed 765hfl for customer about 9 months ago. They recently mentioned that heater wasn't working. We replaced the heater element about 2 weeks ago and the customer just reported that the heater had quit working again. Hmmm... Seems that just replacing the heater element may not be the solution. Any suggestions?
    Asked by: madacl
    I have replaced 5 of these (on one unit). The reason the heater quits working is that the thermistor in the heater assembly fails. (The thermistor is a little gizmo about the size of a 22 cal. rifle cartridge that lets the juice flow into the coils, which heat up until the thermistor reduces the juice, at which time the coils cool down.. The thermistor fails in the OPEN condition, so that no juice gets to the coil at all.) No clue as to why the thermistors fail.

    When heater comes on, doesn't light come on also?

    Asked by: glinda
    No. You need three separate switches one for the light, one for the fan, and one for the heat.

    I can see dust in the fan vents and would like to know the best way of cleaning the unit.

    The model 765HFL schematics seems to suggest the entire grille must be removed or lowered to clean and maintain the unit - but the instructions on how to actually do so are absent. How does one remove or lower the grille?
    Asked by: James
    The plastic cover on the light located in the center pops right out. After removing that, gently twist the light bulb counter-clockwise to remove it and you will find a nut holding the cover in place behind the light bulb. Remove the nut and the cover drops down. As a safety precaution, you may want to turn off power at the breaker before doing this, assuming you will have another light source in the room with you as well.
