0696B000 or 8632000

To motor only, or to buy the assembly. That is the question. Well, here is the answer. We very much so recommend the 0696B000 as opposed to buying just the motor only 86322000. Why is that? Many reasons actually. Believe it or not, the entire assembly is much easier to install than just the motor only.The 0696B000 assembly is quieter and far more reliable than the motor only. The highly highly popular QT110s and QT100s were installed everywhere and more often than not need a replacement motor regularly. If you are needed a new motor, buying the assembly will save you money in the long run. I cannot stress that enough. Also grab a new grille for your older QT fan by clicking the link---> here <---
So if you're on the hunt for a new motor, grab the assembly instead. Your bathroom and its guests will thank you.

The assembly works with the following NuTone/Broan models:

Choosing an electrician.

Hello! Many of you have ordered parts but often pondered - "now how in the heck am I supposed to install this?" And that is more than okay. To be fair, 97% of us lack knowledge on an intercoms, bathroom fans, and central vacuums. So you plan to hire an electrician, but cant figure out whats fair and not in the world of hiring help. Here are some tips to help you find a quality hand to enter your home and offer aid.

Keep in mind there are many different contractors out there that have varied experience and knowledge so be sure to ask and ask again to make sure everyone is on the same page. Google will undoubtedly be your best friend here. Look for a website, yelp reviews, or anything else you can unearth on said contractor. If your man has wronged someone in the past, then there most certainly will be information regarding it. Always compare estimates for the job so you get a ballpark figure of what your going to be spending. Get an early sense of your electricians grasp of what exactly he knows, as many can bluff their way to getting knee deep into something they know nothing about. Ask someone who has used him before. Even in this age of having an abundance of knowledge at our fingertips, word of mouth is still a powerful tool.

So there you have it. Make sure to review everything before hiring help! It could save you from quick and painless to tiresome and frustrating. Hope this helps! Good luck DIYers.
