Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by The speed control is BIG This unit is larger than it appears in the picture. The speed control has a large external heat sink that sticks out from the wall 7/8 inches. The heat sink measures 2 5/8 by 4 1/2 inches. The high capacity of this speed control requries this large heat sink. If you have a single electrical box and plenty of room around it everything will be fine. If you have a ganged box with another switch next to it you are in trouble. I had to order a smaller Broan model 57-W to fit in my available space. October 4, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works perfect with any PSC motor up to 1/2 hp or so My exhaust hood sucks ash out of my wood stove at full speed so adding this to my range hood was a godsend. Hi quality speed control, no humming of motor at any speed. March 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what i needed I was getting a downdraft down the chimney because my broan attic fan was too powerful. This was the controller broan recommended and it works great. I have it running at half speed and the downdraft is gone! As previous reviews mentioned it is big but i have it in a closet so its no big deal. Gets warm to the touch. Broan makes quality parts so i don't forsee any issues. August 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality product I found this switch to be of VERY high quality, well manufactured, and it works VERY well. October 15, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by 72W Fan Switch I was looking for a paddle fan control switch, and this was listed with the fan controls and accessories. However, this switch is not made for a paddle fan per the manufacturer (Broan), but the H.D. specifications does not tell you that. You should get the 78 Broan fan control for a paddle fan. I have advised one of the engineers at Broan to straighten this situation out with H.D. And H.D. should sell both colors, white or Ivory, not just the white one. December 28, 2007
