Answer: 
If you set it to 80 degrees the fan should turn on when it warms to 80 and remain on until it drops below 80. If your unit is doing opposite I would check and see if it is wired correctly. I have 3 of them and have never experienced that issue. Try setting it to 90 and see if that helps. Maybe 80 isn't "extreme" enough for it.

Thank you for contacting MasterFlow ... Our thermostats are designed to operate until they reach a set temperature. If you set your desired setting to 105 degrees F (recommended), the fan will operate until the temperature in your attic is 5-7 degrees below the device setting (98-100) before shutting off.

Thank you for contacting MasterFlow ... Our thermostats are designed to operate until they reach a set temperature. If you set your desired setting to 105 degrees F (recommended), the fan will operate until the temperature in your attic is 5-7 degrees below the device setting (98-100) before shutting off. If the temperature is set to low (70-80 degrees) it may never turn off depending on the outside temperature being pulled into the attic. If the air temperature is 75 to 80 degrees during the summer months, the lower setting may not be achieved and the fan will continue to operate. Attics are designed to sustain temps below 120 degrees without any degradation to the shingles or structure. Please call our Technical Services Group at 800-211-9612 to ask any additional questions.

Answer: 
This specific temp switch is normally open. Which means that the temperature has to get above 80 degrees before it will close the circuit and turn on your fan. Once the temp gets back down to below 80 degrees, it should turn off your fan.

Answer: 
Yes, it will work on AC o DC. A thermostat like this is merely a set of contacts that close due to a bi-metalic disc moving with to the amount of heat it gets, based on your setting. The contacts don't care if it has AC or DC connected to them, as long as you don't exceed the amperage rating on those contacts.
That is 15amps on this thermostat.
LOW voltage DC does often raise the amps Read More

LOW voltage DC does often raise the amps significantly over 120vAC, so be sure you don't go over 15amp. Read Less

Answer: 
The PT6 thermostat is for AC powered units only. Solar units are DC powered. Look for the model# SLRHT1 which is designed for the MasterFlow Solar Powered roof or gable fans. Please call MasterFlow Technical Services at 800-211-9612, 8A-5P M-F ET, with any additional help needed.

Answer: 
Yes, this switch would easily work for your application. This temperature switch is rated for 15 amps @ 120v. If your fans are only 1.35 amps each, you would be well below the maximum amp rating for this temp switch.

Answer: 
Possible, but probably not the best way to do this IF your fans are located some distance apart. The thermostat will shut down the fan that draws the most cooler air over the thermostat, and that could leave the other fan not doing what you want....running to remove hot air.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting MasterFlow ... It is possible to connect 2 fans to one control, but it is Not recommended. Each fan motor has a "surge" of electricity during the start-up phase. To ensure the surge load does not exceed the power capability of the control, we recommend one fan, one control. Please call Technical Services at 800-211-9612, M-F 8A-5P ET, with any additional questions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It is exactly what we needed Although a little loud it works just the way it needs to. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great thermostat, easy to install This was a snap to install and it worked with no problems. October 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Part-Time Adjustable Thermostat 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 ? July 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 23, 2015
