Broan 744-A Fan/Light does not work.

My 744-A Fan/Light unit was working just fine but has stopped working. Light and fan are on separate switches. All other lights/fans in bath work fine. There is power to both switches. When I turn the switch on for the fan, I have power to the fan. When I turn the switch on for the light I have power to the light. I have changed light bulbs and I have unplugged and re-plugged the fan. Am at a loss to repair.

What are you using for a tester? Are you saying you have power to the receptacles in the fan itself?

Welcome to the forums! Have you un-nutted the neutrals to ensure they all are making good contact?

The neutral conductor has lost connection. The two likely locations are inside the awitch box behind the switches, or in the wiring box in the fan/light unit.

Thanks to everyone that suggested the neutral connection had failed. I checked behind the switches and the fan connection. Tightened both. Everything works as designed now -
Thanks again........
