  • 8310 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked since 2010 I have these in a locker room at a health facility. They definitely move air. One of the fans stopped working, the other one sounds horrible so I have to replace them. They lasted almost a full 5 years. I have two more that are still working fine. However they are noisy, for me this is good because it creates ambient noise while people are sharing the space.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fan but needs replacement every few years I have had 2, maybe 3 of these fans in the last decade. Time to replace it again. It works fine when working but I don't understand why it stops working after a few years. It is wall installed. I clean it from time to time but does not seem to help.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like this fan, it does a great job I bought this product about two years ago and installed it in a bathroom that has a high lightwell around a skylight above the shower/bath. There had been problems with steam and moisture on walls etc.The fan did a great job of keeping it fog free and saving the finishes on the walls and windows. It moves an impressive amount of air. This week however the motor failed. Will try to get parts for this fan instead of buying another. I looked at the home improvement store where I bought it but they did not have this motor among the replacement/ improvement motors that they carry. Great fan, just wish it still worked.

  • Can the plastic (?) grille be removed and replaced with a chrome or metal grille?

    I would like to try to find NOS metal grille to use instead of the one that comes with the unit. Is the grille shown plastic, and can it be removed and replaced with a compatible one that is metal? Thanks!
    Asked by: susan
    Thank you for your question on the model 8310 utility exhaust fan. The current grille on the 8310 is a white plastic grille. There is no other grille available for this unit.

    For bath fan model 8662 NL, how do you access inside to change lite bulb?

    Asked by: Meisha
    Thank you for your question on the model 8662NL exhaust fan/light. On the 8662NL, there is a small bezel around the lens itself. You would pull straight down on this bezel/lens assembly and it should come down from the grille a couple of inches. You then need to squeeze the butterfly springs together to totally remove the lens.

    Why should you not use this product above cooktops?

    What is the warranty on this product?

    I installed this product around two years ago, and the fan/motor just quit. It is getting power but not turning. I removed the motor/bracket to test and clean the blades, but found that it spun freely by finger, so it's not a bearing issue. Thanks for any help you can give me.
