My home has two of these that were included with the house.

After two years they've stopped working. Family has resorted to leaving the little window in the bathroom open to release steam and hot air since then.

House is three years old now and these fans are an atrocity. They have turned yellow from oxidation (they're made of really cheap plastic!) and shake up the entire room when turned on. Very shortlived, cheap fans considering the high price you're paying. Ridiculous.

When looking for a bathroom fan, I recommend viewing the CFM rating (the higher the better) and sones rating (lower the better) alongside the price. Don't be cheap and get this fan! This is not something you want to replace frequently throughout the years.

Drop-in Replacement

By WisconsinRetiree

from Barneveld, WI 53507, USA

Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

This product was selected because it was an identical replacement for my old heater/fan/light. That meant that I could use the old housing which meant I didn't have to do any fitting, The entire process of switching the internal components took less than fifteen minutes. The original failed because the heater fan motor seized up and the grille melted. That had been repaired and except for the grill, I have a spare unit. The plug-in wire connections made wiring a cinch and the simple component fastening also made the repair easy.

PRETTY GOOD HEAT, VENT AND LIGHTING ESPECIALLY WITH AND LED BULB INSTALLED IN IT.

By DUDE64

from Wynne, AR 72396, USA

Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

THIS UNIT DOES A VERY GOOD JOB IN ALL ASPECTS. THE ONLY THING I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT IT IS HOW LOUD IT IS WHEN IT IS IN THE HEATING MODE. STARTING UP IT RATTLES THE PICTURES ON THE WALLS.... IMAGINE HAVING A CROP DUSTER CRANKING UP IT'S ENGINE IN YOUR BATHROOM!!

Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

I could not fit this model into existing area. i have had a model 650 installed for 30 plus years and still working. I am trying to locate the cover for the unit. Don Lyskawa was of great help with this problem. Where can i find the unit cover for the 650? Broan makes a product that is still working well after all these years.

gets noisier and louder till it is unbearable

By bob654321

from Modesto, CA, USA

Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

I am on my fourth heater unit and second fan motor since purchasing this unit 3 years ago. Plan on replacing something at least once a year if you own one of these. These units gradually gets noisier and louder till it is unbearable in just a few months of use. I took one of the heater motors apart to see why it failed.. The motor bearing on the side to the squirrel cage fan had become so loose from the constant vibration that it would spin around with the motor shaft and it no longer offered any support to the squirrel cage fan that was free to wobble to the point that the armature of the motor would rub and cause the motor to slow down. Since it cost almost as much for a replacement heater motor as a new complete unit I am now looking to buy a third new unit for spare parts. Once you install one of these you are looking at a major job to remove it and go with a better unit, so I would recommend that you pay the extra and get a good one to start with! I wish I could give a zero stat or even a minus star for this product.

It was a little harder to install because we were replacing an old fan, so I had to do a lot of rewiring and drywalling.

      start the heater a couple of minutes before I take my shower
      easy to clean. One screw light comes out and should be vacuumed or cleaned once a month. Fan pickes up quite a lot of dust.

          Loud and poor heat out put

          By lapain

          from Louisiana, USA

          Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

          It's an average unit. It is louder than we thought, plus the heater doesn't put out like we hoped either. We have the same unit our smaller kid bathroom and still doesn't put out heat like we thought. Only had it for 2 months, so I can not comment on long life. If sound and heat is important, I would not suggest this model.

          Heating element failed

          from Pittsburgh, PA, USA

          Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

          the first one of these units i bought lasted over 5 years before the heating element quit working, does nothing when the switch is flicked. for the price, i bought en entire second unit, believing that if one component went after 5 years, the rest couldnt be far behind. well, 18 months in and the heater went on the new one. Broan used to offer a 5 year warranty on this, but i've discovered that theyve since changed it to a 1 year. hmmmm and thew new one died after a year and a half, coincidence?

          The 655 is a mid level unit

          By Marty

          from Rochester, MN, USA

          Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

          The 655 works fine but the light socket failed within 1.5 years and the light lens has yellowed from a 100W bulb during normal residential use. As a specifier of fans in the HVAC industry I give it a 5 out of 10 for short light socket life.

          Great Heater/ Exhaust Fan for small bathroom

          from Nashville, TN, USA

          Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

          We have 2 of these units in our two smaller bathrooms. They work extremely well. We had them installed during the building of our home 6 years ago. They are still functioning just fine. In our master bath, which is considerably larger, we installed a larger version with more power. I believe it is the Broan QTX110HL. It also has a night light feature, which is nice. It also works extremely well. Our heating element just went out in that one, but we are replacing it for about $30. Very pleased with our choice of these products. Would not want to live without them!

          I replaced both of the fans in my upstairs bathrooms with Broan 655 heat/light/fan and I am pleased. These are a little noisy but most fans are. The price was very reasonable and the quality is great.

          Comments about Broan® 70CFM Deluxe Bathroom Heater, Fan & Light (655):

          The Broan 655 is a direct replacement for a Broan 655 that was in use for more than twenty years. All present day ventilators would not fit the present opening. I checked with Broan online and was surprised that the model was still available although not in the box stores. Installation was a direct replacement. The fan isn't the quietest when running but really does a great job removing the moisture from the shower in my small bathroom. When the shower is running it isn't noticeable. No issues with unit since installation.
