Questions & Answers

Do you think this switch would be safe to use to vary the speed of a 120v, 7.5 amp wood lathe?

Asked by: Joe
No, I wouldn't use it. This switch is rated up to 6 amps. I think you'd burn it out quickly.

Does this work for a bathroom exhaust fan?

Asked by: Herb
Yes, it should work OK for the majority of bathroom exhaust fans. However, most bathroom exhaust fans don't move a lot of air (typically 60-100 CFM, cubic feet per minute) so you may not want to reduce the speed of the fan. Doing so will reduce your airflow and consequently diminish the effectiveness.

Will this control device work with a Broan whole house fan installed in 1989?

Asked by: KM
This switch is only rated for 6 AMPs. It would not be compatible with the whole house ventilators as they required switches with a higher AMP rating. It would be best to know the model number of your whole house unit, get the AMP rating, and then locate a switch. We do not have one in our current line. Thank you.

Customer Reviews

White Electronic Variable Speed Wall Control is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heat Sink is LARGE. Functions well though. Heat sink is large--and is outside the junction box--to accommodate up to 6 amps (see photos). I only tested it briefly and it worked fine with a NuTone exhaust fan. Since the fan I have only pulls 2.4 amps, I went with the 57W (3 amp max) because that unit doesn't have a protruding heat sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Variable Speed Control My ratings only apply if this one lasts longer than the last one. Original fan control lasted 18 years. The replacement for that one (identical to this one) only lasted 6 years. If this one does not last longer than 6 years, I would need to reduce my rating. Time will tell. The only problem is that nobody makes an alternative speed control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fixed my problem This was just a replacement part but the price was great. Way cheaper than amazon and no shipping, just picked it up at the store when they notified me that the part had arrived.
