I bought one and the heater fan motor was binding up. So I returned it. Now, less that a year later the heater element has failed. It's difficult to find a unit that has heat, fan, and light, so I'm happy to have it. But like everything, it has a planned obsolescence factor built in, or so it seems.
But, all in all, it's doing the job and it looks nice.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Update:
I received an unexpected e-mail from Broan. I was shipped a replacement heater unit at no charge. It works like new. I'm very pleased that Broan was on top of their customer service. Thanks Broan!

Eric's Questions
 

How long is the warranty on the heater element?( mod# 100HFL-A )

Hello,

I have a mod# 100HFL-A bathroom fan. It is less that a year old. The first one I installed had a heater fan that was binding up. So, I exchanged it and have been conscious of this unit. However, it seems to have over heated. I get continuity through the nichrome wire. I believe the fusible link has failed. Can I get a replacement unit under warranty? They cost $34 to replace. If not, can I just get the fusible link?

Thanks,
Eric

heater quit after 3 days anything to reset

Nothing to reset.
Make sure your connections inside are good. Do this by unplugging and replugging them. If the heating element is not getting warm, most likely the thermal fuse has blown. Since it is only three days old, try to return it to the store. If you have a meter, check continuity before and after the fusable link. The link is a small silver can in the heater coil( about the size of a 22 round) 1/2 long with a black bit of resin on one end. If it overheats it will fail for safety. Also, make sure that the heater fan is working up to speed. If is binds or runs slow, there is less air flow and it will overheat.

100HFL

just bought a model 100HFL at lowes a month ago its all installed so i can't return it ...... the heater dose'nt work it did when it was installed an now just the blower on the heater works ... no heat .... what do i do now ?
I have a 100HFL. If you have a meter you can check continuity of the heater element. There is a heat-fusible link that may have failed. It is a little silver can within the heater wires. Check continuity there. Or, a connector may not be seated correctly. Undoing everything and reassembling the connectors could solve the problem. Also, if the heater fan motor is running slow, the heater could have overheated and caused the failure( I had that happen).

You might also receive an e-mail from customer service, as I did, and a replacement part will be sent out. Tell your story on their review panel.
