    Q:I've had mine installed for just over a year now and am having problems. There recently was a loud bang and now it squeals loudly whenever it turns on. I'm assuming it's a problem with the motor. Is there a way to fix this?

      Q:If I disconnect the humidity sensor plug and have it wired to a normal on/off toggle switch will it work normally or is there something else I should do to bypass the humidity sensor.
      by|May 5, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  The humidity sensor is hard wired into the PC board and isn't able to be easily disconnected. If you are wired to a wall switch turning on the unit on at the switch will force the fan on for a 20 minute run time. After that the unit would drop back into its humidity sensing state. This is from the installation instructions: The fan will run for 20 minutes when power switch is first turned on, regardless of the humidity sensor settings. After 20 minutes, the fan will return to sensor mode. This will allow you to use the fan as an on/off type fan in most cases.

        Q:I am going to have 2 nearby fans connected to the same exhaust. This fan will not work well for this because it does not have a built in damper and the moist air would just flow back into the other room if both fans are not running at the same time,right?
        by|Apr 3, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  The Whisper Choice does have a built in barometric back damper. We don't encourage common venting as you will get noise in the non running fan when the fan it is common vented with is running.

          An Amazing Fan!
          This fan is amazing! I am super impressed with how quiet it is and yet how powerful it is. I put this in a vaulted ceiling bathroom that is a fair size. This fan is able to clear the air quite quickly. It has some pretty cool features too. The humidity sensor is helpful and the timer associated with it is a nice customization option that isn’t available on other fans. Most of all, I love how easy this was to install. The entire side that attaches to the vent pipe and electrical separates from the main fan housing; this is so that you can install the vent pipe and electrical easily and then merely slide the fan housing into place. Its soooooo simple and so helpful. I have installed a few fans and this was by far the easiest to install. It made a huge difference having that feature. It also seems very well built and sturdy. I’m super happy with this fan; I plan on purchasing more of them for other bathrooms.

          Good features for a bathroom Exhaust fan
          Panasonic Whisper Choice Auto DC Pick-A-Flow 80/110 CFM Ceiling Bathroom Exhaust Fan with Humidity Sense and Flex-Z Fast Bracket, White is an updated bathroom exhaust fan. This is fan kit is an easy change over from the contractor grade 50 CFM / noisy fans that are installed in most new homes. This bathroom fan should be a no brainer for any quality builder.

          No more fog
          Panasonic Whisper Choice Auto DC Pick-A-Flow 80/110 CFM ceiling bathroom exhaust fan with humidity sensor is very impressive. The Fan that I replaced really makes you think what you should look for when you’re purchasing a home. What I removed should not have been called an exhaust fan. I had to upgrade the size of the ceiling outlet from 6” to 10 7/8” and the exhaust flex house from 3” to 4”. I am extremely satisfied with my choice I would not have believed that “Panisonic” could compete in the area of ventilation but when taking a shower no more mirror fog so the humidity in the bathroom is basically gone. As far as being quiet I had to put a slip of paper up to the cover to find out if it was working.

          Quiet and Efficient
          We've recently moved into an 18 year old home and have started the process of replacing aging appliances, fans, and other electronic items that have outlived their usefulness. The exhaust fan in our Master bath was particularly bothersome, having developed a nasty rattle/rumble sound at some point. This Panasonic Whisper Choice Auto DC Pick-A-Flow Bathroom Exhaust Fan has solved our problems. Once I got the old fan out, installation was easy using the Flex-Z Fast Bracket and the included instructions. The flow rate range can be set to a low minimum of 80 CFM to a higher minimum of 110 CFM, with the fan capable of moving more air if the situation requires it. Our bath is fairly large so I chose the higher setting. Even at this increased speed, the fan is very quiet, averaging 34-38 db while running at full speed. That's library quiet, and a huge improvement over our old fan. Design of the unit is very nice, and helps make most of the installation doable from below, rather than from the attic. Desired humidity level is also adjustable. With this fan, you just set the level you want and the fan will run only when necessary. I'm very pleased with this fan and highly recommend it!

          Really Quiet Fan. Retrofit installation is fairly easy.
          I am slowly replacing all the noisy bath fans in the house with these ultra-quiet Panasonics. Those old builder fans are so noisy we rarely use them. The Panasonic uses a DC motor and squirl cage design that makes for very quiet operation. This fan touts easily replacement of your old fan. And for me it was fairly easy since both the old and this new one are nearly the same size. Code has changed since my house was built. It is now required that bath (shower) exhaust fans must sense humidity and activate automatically, to control moisture/mold build-up. This Panasonic has a humidity sensor built in and you can control at what level you want it to active with a small knob inside the grill. But if your old fan was on a switch, like mine was, it will not meet the code requirements. You have to wire the fan so it has constant power to have the humidity sensor work. So for me that was a bit of extra work. The reward is a fan that is so much quieter that you don’t mind running it. The price of this silence is going to cost you a bit more ($170, August 2022) but who wants a cheap fan that no one wants to use. I give this Panasonic a “B” grade. Only the premium price holds it back.

          Highly Recommended for Bathrooms / High Humidity Locations
          As a Pro Builder, I ONLY use Panasonic Exhaust Fans I developed and taught indoor air quality courses before I retired. I always recommended exhaust ventilation to ensure adequate fresh air in energy efficient homes as well as to control moisture, odors, and remove stale or polluted air. This particular fan is activated by the adjustable humidity sensor. When the preset humidity level has been reached, it will continue to operate another 30 seconds to 1 hr (also adjustable and used selected). Because the sensor is the trigger, the fan should be powered continuously (e.g. not easily switched off). The flow rate is selectable (80 or 100 cfm) depending on the size of home and/or the number of occupants. The fan is very quiet when operating. Panasonic fans are energy efficient, quiet, long-lived, and maintain set flow even when the intake or exhaust grille accumulate dust and debris (e.g. spider webs). I have installed them in my homes, and used them as a contractor. Comes with mounting bracket, instructions, adapter for 4' or 6" duct. Assembled in Mexico

          Upgrade unit
          Got this for our downstairs bath. The original unit was ok but wanted an upgraded one with a little more “oomph” I’d rate this one as middle-upper end. Cover has clip-in wires for easy removal. Cover itself is sturdy plastic and nice matte white finish measuring ~13” square. Motor housing appears to be of nicer quality. Like the optional settings that are accessible when the cover is removed. So if the lower setting isn’t cutting it we can bump it up a notch.

          Quiet, well made fan
          This is an extremely high-quality and quiet multi-speed fan. Every component is very well made and the fan includes an expanding mounting bracket so that the installer does not have to rely on the location of joists to place the fan. The one thing that I noticed upon taking this fan out of the box is that it is quite a bit larger than a standard builders-quality bathroom fan. My previous fan fit in an approximately 8" x 8" opening. This fan needs a 10.25" x 10.25" opening. Cutting out the additional drywall is not that difficult, but I wanted to mention this difference in case there is any obstruction that may prevent the installation of a larger fan. In most installations, this should not present a problem. This fan is a fantastic upgrade over the old builder's grade. It moves more air and does it very quietly. I have a bathroom near my couch and I used to have difficulty hearing my tv when the bathroom fan was on. This fan solved that problem. This is a very good product and highly recommend it!

          The Ultimate Bathroom Fan
          I got this Panasonic WhisperChoice Auto DC fan because my current bath fan did not remove the shower steam very well and the tape around the drywall at the ceiling edges is beginning to lift. First off, the fan has two speeds: either 80 CFM or 110 CFM. Believe me when I say that the 110 CFM setting really moves some air! The actual fan is huge compared to the small fan I had in the bathroom. However, my old fan was installed over twenty years ago and the CFM is probably 50. Second, the Panasonic fan motor is DC very energy efficient, compared to an AC fan motor, and will last a lot longer. By the way, if you are like I am and have only looked at the inside of a small bath fan, you will really be impressed with the Panasonic fan in this bath fan. It is huge in comparison and, as I stated earlier, moves a lot of air. I was afraid that I would have to go into the attic to install this fan. At my age, my wife does not like me walking around up there for fear I will fall through. Panasonic has made it so this fan can be installed from inside the house. All I had to do was disconnect and remove the existing fan, which I could do from inside the bathroom. I then installed the mounting bracket, connected the incoming electrical wire and duct to the roof vent, and attached it to the mounting bracket. For the rest of the finish, I did what I would have done on any fan, such as caulk any gaps between the ceiling and fan to seal everything to prevent air leaks. The cover was a snap to put on. While this was a fairly easy installation for me, it does take more than just a few minutes, as anyone who has ever installed a bath fan will attest to. But this installation was made relatively easy because of the bracket, and I was able to do it all without climbing into the attic. My attic insulation is batting, so all I had to do was push it up to get the old fan out and put the new fan in. Loose insulation would have required me to get into the attic. I have not mentioned the humidistat and timer that is pre-installed on the fan. The humidistat can be set from 30% to 80% humidity, and the timer can be set to run from 30 seconds to 60 minutes. Had I had a room that I wanted to vent automatically on a continual basis, this fan would do that very well. But I will just be using my existing wall switch to turn the fan on and off. By the way, this fan really is whisper quiet. It produces less noise than my old fan, which moved only half as much air when it was running. This fan will definitely eliminate all my shower steam problems! Make sure you follow the installation instructions as I almost forgot to remove the tape from the duct flap.
