Customer Questions & Answers

I have 50+ year old house with a through-the wall type of exhuast fan in the kitchen. the knob to turn on the fan is broken, which is the

reason I am thinking about replacing the entire fan, as it is quite greasy anyway. Would this fan be able to replace my existing one, which had a round motor housing of 8.5 to 8.625 inch diameter? Also how do you turn on the fan? My current fan has a knob that goes through a hole in the cover. I don't see a hole on the cover of this unit. Thanks.

IF IT FITS IN T HE SPACE OF THE OLD FAN IT SHOULD WORK FINE AS LONG AS YOU SECURE IT. YES, THERE IS A ROUND HOLE IN THE GRID WHERE AN ON/OFF SWITCH GOES. I CONNECTED THE 2 WIRES FROM THE FAN (BLACK AND WHITE) TO AN EXTENSION CORD AND JUST PLUG IT IN WHEN I WANT TO USE IT RATHER THAN HOOK UP A SWITCH BECAUSE MINE IS QUITE HIGH ON THE WALL.

can i install in wall if inner sheet rock wall has 1 foot cavity chase before hitting exterior wall?

are their extensions for extra distance between inner and outer wall. will a standard duct extension work for this installation Broan 270 CFM Through-the-Wall Exhaust Fan Model # 508 Internet # 100662376
Asked by: Anonymous
From what I could find without going to a supply house was that you'd have to jury rig something to accommodate the extra distance and you'd have to find a way to marry the inner and outer pieces together for rigidity and probably need additional support.

can this fan be used in a bathroom

Asked by: Anonymous
Probably. Do a search of others in the same brand. It depends on how much ventilation one wants.

If you need to go directly through the wall and if you need this much CFM, then this is about the only option. It is sturdy, but the plastic fan blade was and is out of balance or crooked, causing a fair amount of vibration. Quite noisy, similar to the old bathroom vent fans that had quite a rumble. It could be about 30% quieter if the blade was in balance. We installed this a week ago, hate to use it, but does move a good amount of air.

We installed this above our stove to use as a kitchen vent fan, and we are very pleased. We painted the cover to match the walls, and it looks pretty slick. Before installing this fan, just searing some meat on a cast iron pan would smoke up our entire main floor and leave the kitchen covered with a thin layer of grease. Now, with this fan installed, those days are a distant memory. It clears the smoke right out, as intended. We were a bit concerned that the fan might be too loud on full blast, but that's not the case. For comparison, I'd say it is quieter than most range hoods on a "high" setting. We also installed one of Broan's variable switches (Model 57w), which gives us full control over the fan. We're pleased with the switch as well. Because we installed it in the kitchen, we purchased and installed a filter, as suggested by a Broan rep in response to one of the questions on this website. First we tried special ordering the filter from our Home Depot store, but they weren't able to do that. Fortunately, it was very easy to order from Broan's website- just type in the model number (see question and answer section), and you're off to the races. Installation was pretty easy for me, an aspiring DIY-er yet relatively new homeowner. The only complications were caused by quirks of my old house (e.g., inexplicable extra wood between studs that made fishing the wiring tricky). The fan itself came with good instructions and was pretty user friendly to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exhaust Fan Basic exhaust fan. Seems to be of good quality. Fairly easy to install. Good instructions. Siding on outside of the house will be the biggest challenge depending on siding type if installing in existing construction.
