Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bob571 Does the job, but has accuracy issues.
Thermostat is a basic bimetal, that make/break contacts based on temperature. The instructions may not be great but I found installation self explanatory. There are 2 wires to the thermostat that make/break the connection to the load. The motor's neutral goes straight to the power neutral, both wires are white in most cases. Ground goes to the green grounding screw. The thermostat wires hook up like an ordinary light switch.
The thermostat works but I found mine to be 10-15 degrees off. With a 110 setting the thermostat kicks the fan on @ 120-125. Measure actual attic temperature and set thermostat accordingly.
Temperature "spread" doesn't seem to be quite enough as the fan cycles on/off after the sun goes down. I'd rather see the thermostat have a larger "spread" between on and off, perhaps 10 to 20 degrees.

Home Depot sells attic fans in the store. But for some reason not the regulator thermostat. So it was purchased on line. Welcome to big-box logic. Made a simple project turn into something for two weekends waiting on parts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manaka Used this for the attic exhaust fan. Works well.
Bought this for the attic exhaust after the last one burnt out (different manufacturer).
The attic fan helps keep the temperature down in the lower levels in summer. The thermostat on this seems to work like clockwork & has made a noticeable different in the temperature downstairs.
Had to hire an electrician to install it as I could not make out the instructions well.

I have replaced three of these thermostats on my powered attic fan. One of them stuck and finally burned out the fan motor when i was working out of town and it ran the fan continually for a month straight. They seem to work OK for a while but soon I have to cut it off at the shut-off switch when it sticks. i have tried different adjustments time & time again but they do not perform flawlessly so I can trust it. I am looking for a digital thermostat to replace it. It might be more dependable ?

We bought it to make a outlet with it. Cuts any 120 AC fan on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cbreview Terrific product for a fan
Ideal product for a fan. We installed a timer for our garage fan to help with cooling, but adding this thermostat really makes our fan run efficiently.
