  • 765HFL is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fan won't accept a timer. I have tried just about every wiring combination possible on the switch end and cannot get the fan to operate with a digital timer switch. No fan should be subject to manual control. A timing circuit should be built in and a standard feature. Unlike other reviewers, my heater is still operational with minimal usage since Jan 2017. I guess we'll see if it still works next winter.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heater components poorly sourced by manufacturer I've had my 765 since JUN2012. It failed within days of using the heater. Bought a replacement heater, installed, and it failed within days. Troubleshooting revealed a failed diode on the heater assembly. It is spec'd to 70C but the fan MUST supply enough air to shield it from the radiant energy from the nichrome element. Maybe yes maybe no. Odds not in favor of the buyer. Need a better fan design or get a diode that will work on the surface of the sun.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You don't want this one. If you are purchasing a combined unit you are doing it because you want heat. I wish I read the reviews before purchasing. The exhaust and the light are great. No complaints. Our bathroom is pushing the limits of recommended square footage and this machine sucks out the moisture like nothing I've seen. However, the heat maybe worked a month. I came to the website hoping for a manual to troubleshoot but after reading these reviews I think I will just have the electrician rewire the heating to the wall and opt for the separate wall heater. The other option is to replace the heating element continually?? Not a very good option. Not a good product. (And yes Nutone, before you reply, I realize it's under warranty but it doesn't do me any good to continually replace the bad part. Not interested in that. If you're interested in giving me $159 credit toward a wall heater we can talk.)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from when it works it is wonderful, but the heating unit has a very short life Had this unit installed awhile back and it was great for the first 5 years..after that, I think we have had 5 new heating units installed...everytime necessitating the services of an electrician..the unit is presently not working and the replacement heater is on backorder...no telling when it will be available.. We need the heat now.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great for six months This unit seems great it was easy to install . It is a bit noisier than expected. The biggest disappointment is the heater going out after only six months with minimal use!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea...bad components. Bad thermistor...don't buy until the product engineers source and spec a thermistor that won't faIL in 3 months. Thermister=$1, heater=$30, unit= $275.

  • 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.

    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: Anonymous
    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: Anonymous
    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: Anonymous
    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.
