Questions & Answers

Does it have a thermostat that turns it on and off?

Asked by: Bill
No but you can add a GE wall timer. Have the line (line from circuit breaker/power source) feed into the timer and the speed control (which would be the load) connect to the GE wall timer. All you have to do then is pick how long you want the fan on and then set the speed. Shuts off automatically. Did that with my 24 inch house fan & works great. Bought new home & going to do the same with this one.

Fan Will not start

Motor just makes noise when the switch is turned on. If I can spin the fan fast enough it will start and continue to run. It is great when it runs but I am the only one who can start it. Not good for my wife.

6000 CFM 30 in. Belt Drive Deluxe Whole House Fan with Shutter is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 64.

It did take me two days to install as I needed to make some framing modifications to center it in my hallway. I was impressed with the construction of the fan, and the newer all metal shutter with felt edges. Got the fan in just in time for 90 plus weather and cools the house down in about 20 minutes. Open the master bed slider and family room slide door on the other end of the house and can really feel the air flow. I do have a 3 ft x 9 ft gable vent and a 7 ft at peak attic and feel that likely optimized the fans ability to generate substantial airflow. Is a little noisy, but expected such with this type of fan, an only have it on for 20-30 minutes.

I lost the original receipt so I ended up just buying a new fan motor and replaced it. When it is installed, it's not that noisy, though you definitely hear it. After about a year, the noise gets higher. If you want something quiet and reliable, maybe look for something else.

Had to fight an issue in the fan for hours, ended up being a fuseable link on the low speed connection, keep in mind there is not one on the high speed. Once that was fixed the fan is up and running fine but it is very noisy, almost twice as loud as the one I replaced from the 60s. Not pleased.

I installed this Master Flow 30" belt drive whole house fan two days ago and will be - unfortunately - uninstalling it and returning it to Home Depot for a refund. It is advertised as a two speed fan - which it is - but both speeds are high speeds! And both speeds are very noisy. I expected a noisier high speed, but I didn't expect it to be noisy on low speed. Way too noisy to try and go to sleep with the fan on - even at the lower speed. It's like having a freight train outside our bedroom! This fan was to replace a 35 year old attic fan that had two speeds - a true low speed, low volume CFM speed and a high speed, high CFM volume fan - but whose motor finally gave out. We'd put the old fan on high speed (also noisy on high speed) once the outside air temp cooled off in the evening to cool down the house, then put the fan on low speed (and low noise) as we were going to bed to continue to have a small volume of cool air keep the house cool while sleeping. Because this new Master Flow fan is noisy on both low (but not really low) speed as well as high speed, it does not meet our needs. If you are looking for a quiet, true low speed as one of your fan speeds, this fan is not what you need. Unfortunately for me, there was no way for me to find this out until my fan was installed, and now I have to go thru the work and pain to uninstall it and return it to Home Depot. Avoid my misfortune and avoid this fan if need a fan with a true low RPM, low noise lower speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great.. I did an install from scratch. We recently moved into a 3,200 sf house, and those little window fans simply do not do the trick anymore.. that and we now live in a two story house.. heat does rise I found out. and the upstairs was much hotter than downstairs.. but enough of that.. here is the meat and potatoes.. I first had a hard time finding a good spot to put the fan. It needs to be in a central location upstairs. We have a low sloped roof, and blown in insulation. It was summer when installed. It really was tuff working in a high heat condition trying to find a spot that worked.. I finally did. I cut a joist, and reframed to fit the box fan. No problem. I ran new wires down the wall to a new outlet location near the fan. I did get smart, and installed a timer prior to the two speed switch. I could so see my teens leaving this fan on all night.. and that is not what these are for. I usually leave the switch on high.. and simply push the 10 or 20 minute button on the timer and walaah! The fan actually works great. DO make sure you open enough windows so as to not make the fan work too hard.. you will reduce the life of the fan of course if it is overworked. This thing moves air... a lot of air! whoo hoo! it will actually slam doors to room with open windows, so make sure they are fully open. The fan is actually much queiter than we thought and quieter than the display fan at the store.. not bad :) We love the fan and would definately recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This unit was a replacement because the origional fan in the house had a burned up motor (actually cheaper to replace the fan than buy a replacement motor). Installation instructions were sketchy at best...even with an existing installation. It took about 5 hours to retrofit this unit to existing installation. It has been installed for 3 days and has good airflow, but I was a bit dissapointed because the shutter has a vibration to it. The fan frame looks flimsy compared to the unit it replaced, but you get what you pay for. I would say for the money, it was to be expected.
