Broan-Nutone Ventilation Fan Assembly S0696B000


Broan-Nutone Ventilation Fan Assembly S0696B000

Keeping appliances up-to-date is the only way to ensure the safety of our home. Appliances are not guaranteed to last forever, and ventilation fans are vital for exchanging toxic air. Cooking on stove tops expels hazardous air contaminants such as Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), formaldehyde (HCHO), and carcinogens. These toxins are a major health hazard and should be adequately removed to keep our family safe. Not only do inoperable range hoods cause health issues, but inefficient or not working bathroom fans pose a serious threat.
It may not be apparent to most home owners, but bathrooms are a major source of humidity in a home. An excess of humidity combined with warm air creates the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. Mold is extremely hazardous because it rapidly replicates and expels spore into the air. An over exposure to mold can cause serious sicknesses that include high fevers and lung infections. Sicknesses caused by mold growth are dangerous and will persist until humidity levels are adequately controlled.
However, despite these issues, there are many valid reasons as to why it is difficult to maintain our appliances. The main reason why some appliances are not fixed is because some replacement parts are difficult to find or are no longer available. Many manufacturers cease production of replacement parts because it is no longer cost effective and they can force consumers to purchase a complete new unit. Fortunately Storeforparts.com specializes in older replacement parts and will have the parts you need. They parts lists ranged from older brands such as Broan-Nutone to Aubrey, Air-Care, and Nautilus.
One of the most common parts to fail on a ventilation unit is the motor. Sometimes it may be difficult to find a motor replacement, but the most difficult part most people don’t think about is reattaching the blade to the motor. Blades need to be attached and balanced correctly or they increase the risk of wearing out the motor fast or even rendering the ventilation fan useless. Because of these risks, reattaching the blade to the motor is recommended to only be performed by an experienced technician. Even to experts, this task can be very difficult and it is much easier to purchase the product with the blade already attached and balanced. This is called a “complete assembly” and comes with a motor, blade, and bracket.

One of the most popular complete assemblies is the S0696B000, which goes to the models QT100L, QT100LH, QT110, QT100FL, and QT9093. Complete assemblies are extremely useful because they are pre-assembled and ready to be installed. Most technicians don’t have the time to remove multiple parts just to replace a single part. Complete assemblies can be removed in two simple steps and can be reinstalled in just the same. Don’t waste multiple hours on something that can be done in a few minutes with a complete assembly like the S0696B000.
