Rated 1 out of 5 by newowner Noisy as heck, difficult to remove grille to replace bulb
This was installed in 12/2014 in a newly constructed house I purchased. Right away, I noticed this fan is incredibly noisy. If you lightly push on the grille, it will quiet down somewhat. The grill is difficult to remove. Once I did manage to get it removed, I noticed the thin, cheap construction of this fan. It is obviously a contractor grade, no more no less.
I've stayed in motels with quieter units than this.
I do not recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by General18505 Perfect!
Just put in my 3rd #8663rp in ten years. Apparently earlier models wore out faster than they should have--something slipped down, causing the fan to sound like a WWI fighter airplane. Nutone has ssupposedly fixed the problem with current-production models--we shall see. Anyway, the customer service representative was very helpful. He sent me a FREE a replacement blower/fan right away which took about ten minutes for me to install--not too bad. Excellent customer service, I would say.

Bought a new 8663rp nutone bathroom fan with light assembly because old one was really noisy. After installing new fan it's just as noisy as old fan. Why would this keep happening? Is this product just bad old or new?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pefto This is a very good product.
This product has worked well since it was installed. It has good features and a good appearance. The only reason I did not rate it as excellent is that it is not the easiest item to clean when the grills get full of dust, etc. Otherwise, it is very good overall.

Simply cleaning dust buildup on the fan fins will quiet the fan significantly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimn01 14 years old and still running strong
It's a high volume fan. No it's not the quietest but I don't believe it pretends to be. Mine was making a horrible racket and I expected to have to replace the motor fan assembly. However on removing the assembly for inspection the remains of an acorn fell out. I reassembled and that was the end if the noise.
It's 14 years old and had an acorn rattling around in it for some time . Somehow it survived and is working like new

Rated 1 out of 5 by KeithKing Had 2 of them, stopped working within 3 years
These were installed in our new home. They lasted 3 years when they started to make noise and within months they stopped working all together.
