The humidity sensor fan worked great from December to June. Now it turns on randomly. I've tried adjusting the humidity threshold to no avail. So I had to disconnect the sensor and turn on the fan manually. I cannot recommend this product.

Easy install. Setup to turn on automatically. Works exactly the way i anticipated.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tom12 Doesn't work nearly as well as reported
I have used it and have tried adjusting the settings for nearly a year. It continues to underperform. It keeps on turning back on, long after the shower has been used and the humidity is gone. The time adjustment seems to be too short or too long of a running time, 10 min or 60 min. But 10 min time running feature will keep on resetting for nearly an hour. The strength of the fan seems unimpressive, cheaper fans seem to work better. I would not recommend a fan with a humidstat sensor, technology has not improved it enough for practical purposes yet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by fab I think we got a defective product.... Was able to get it installed - but won't come on. In the process of exchanging it for another model.
Was installed by a pro - but couldn't get it to work.

I love this fan, but I knocked one star off because in order for the humidity detection to work you must purchase an optional item for it. This is only detailed in very small print in the manual. My contractor was pulling his hair out, trying to figure out why he couldn't get the humidity connection to work, but then my wife saw the tiny print. Long story short, we hooked it up to work manually, so I paid for a feature I'm not using, but it works like a champ. It's quiet and powerful, and I have yet to steam up the bathroom when it's running.

I am trying to rewire our fan to manual because the auto feature turns in on sometimes even when the humidity is below 30%.
Newtone doesn't have an answer for that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoeNeutron 4 years old and already broken
I purchased and installed this item around 4 years ago because at the time it was the only quiet humidity sensing fan on the market. After one summer, I quickly realized how useless the humidity sensor was and basically had to rewire it to bypass this sensor. I'd come home on a hot august day to find my house hot with the AC struggling because the bathroom fan had been running all day long. At other times I'd take a shower and be annoyed that the fan never even kicked on. To top it off, now that spring has come I toggle the switch and find the fan isn't working anymore. Figures it's out of warranty. The replacement motor unity is comparable in price to other quiet fans on the market. I for one will give up the dream of a humidity sensing fan and will replace it all with a quiet fan on a 5/10/15/30 minute selectable timer switch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THOR504 Exactly as advertised
I installed this fan (no light) several months ago, and waited to write a review until it had been in use for a while.
It's great! I didn't want to have a switch, nor did I want my fan running whenever the lights went on - I hate those - so this was the perfect solution. It activates about half-way through the shower, and runs VERY quietly moving a great deal of air (I feel it pulling air out of the laundry chute and under the door!).
Couldn't be happier, and highly recommend it.
