Asked by Paul September 16, 2020

I have one of these ventilation fans installed in our son’s bathroom. As soon as he gets the shower going the fan will turn on, and will remain on, Ignoring the timer, in an attempt to reduce the humidity to the set level. However if, say, the humidity in the house is at our about the set level, the fan will run indefinitely. I’ve gone into his bathroom several hours after he’s left for work and the fan Is still running. So I installed a double pole, double throw switch to completely isolate the unit. If I leave it off for a minute or two it’ll reset itself and return to timed fan mode.

How many amps does a Panasonic model number FV-0511VQL1 draw.

It can be installed on a 20 amp circuit, no need for a separate dedicated circuit like the new ones with the heat light which draw too much need to be fully dedicated.

can this be installed in a 2x2 drop ceiling tile? can I reduce the vent to 3"?

Asked by BR February 11, 2020

Answer

I’m not sure about the ceiling tile install. The Flex-Z brackets must be connected to a solid structure, so it might depend on what you’re intending to mount it to. Regarding the output vent size, going from a 4” diameter vent to 3” reduces the cross- sectional area by about 40%. Depending upon how long your vent is, and how many elbows it has, I think you would not be happy with the air flow.

Can this be adapted From a 3” to 4” vent? Existing vent is 3”?

Asked by Bangs January 13, 2020

Answers

It is not a good idea to use a 3" vent tube on a fan designed for a 4" or 6" Vent tube. It will restrict air flow, especially at the 110 CFM speed and place unnecessary wear on the motor.

My contractor installed the fan so I don't know how it was done, but I told him I wanted the light and fan to work on 1 switch and that I did not want the night light wired in at all. Our situation was also a retrofit and he mention something about running a 'jumper' from the celling light. He had no difficulties and it works exactly as I requested.

I have three of these fans, and all have 5” diameter ducting. I bought an adapter from Home Depot for $6 or so. I wouldn’t try the “tape” route, in my opinion it wouldn’t be sturdy enough.

Dows the Flex-Z fast install bracket work both on 24" on-center joists and 16"?

Answers

I've used the Z-bracket on 16" on-center and 18" o/c joists. if you need to use it with 24" o/c joists, you could screw additional short pieces of 2 x 4 lumber onto your existing joists, to effectively decrease the o/c width to match the Z-bracket.

My contractor installed it with 3 separate switches. I had him use a dimmer for the light. The night light is perfect for night time. You will love this fan.

Install was moderate difficulty - I am a DIYer so projects like this are occasional for me, nevertheless it went well. Ours was a refit job rather than new install. Product write-ups mention "Flex Z Fast" bracket; it is a good design. The Instructions are fair and are available online. The text was written by a non-native English speaker so they are hard to follow. I can't attest to the Spanish version. The diagrams are too small and require studying. A company fan as big as Panasonic should hire a tech writer for 1 day to cleanup the text. Nevertheless I was able to decipher the instructions. The box separates from the adapter onto which the wiring and duct attach. Because of that, it is possible to do the wiring in the room rather than the cramped attic space. You will need access to the ceiling joists to fasten the bracket and to tape the unit to the exhaust duct. The unit is quiet! The exhaust speed is settable. There is a 5 second delay after applying power to the fan. The light is bright enough, but I wish it were a tad brighter. The night light is a nice feature. I highly recommend this unit and will probably install additional units to replace our existing ones. As for longevity, for me, it's too soon to say but this is a quality product, worth the additional cost compared to its competitors.

Quiet.....but a pain to install

Great, quiet fan, I have an older one in my other bathroom I installed years ago. Bought this one for my kids bathroom after putting off the install for so long. Unfortunately for me my old NuTone I yanked out (garbage) was a round oddball size, and it left a unusable hole in the drywall ceiling so my install was compounded in difficulty due to having to patch the drywall as well. The install instructions are terrible as everyone has stated and I even read thru them multiple times before doing the work. I'm also an engineer so I know how to read instructions and understand diagrams. If I was doing this again, I'd ditch the metal install bracket and just install new ferring strips attached to the roof joists spaced appropriately to sandwich the sides of the fan box. I used the "new install" method because I wasn't confident the metal bracket would be easy to hit blind thru the drywall with the screws. My joists are 23" on center so that bracket is extended all the way so it's very flimsy and not straight which would make it even harder to hit thru the drywall with the screws. Since i had to do drywall repair anyway, the "new construction" method was possible for me, others may not have this option if they're trying to reuse the old hole. The next guy who has to remove this fan won't like it though because the mounting screws are buried under the drywall with this method. For the premium price of this unit it I'm shocked it doesn't come with 2 strain reliefs for the electrical connection thru the box......really!!!! WTF. Also, after I thought I was all done, it appears that my Lutron timer switch isn't compatible because this fan is so energy efficient that it won't work the switch. Currently sourcing a new switch which I was not expecting to have to do. A disclaimer or warning when you're buying this would be appreciated. Overall, happy with the fan as it performs great, Panasonic just needs to do some work on instructions, including all necessary accessories , and making sure consumers are aware of all the add ons they may need for an install (switches that work with low amperage DC motors).

These fans are amazingly quiet! We replaced 40 year old fans and are over the moon with how well these work. The fan is very quiet, the light is very bright and they function very well. (Be aware that it takes 15 or so seconds for the fan to start, so it may sound at first like it’s not working.) Highly recommended!

heard how quiet this exhaust fan was, After I got it wired in I turned it on and thought I had something wrong. It was until I looked up into the fan and saw it running that I realized how quiet this unit really was.

This fan works well and is quiet. I am very happy with it. The light is just right too. My husband installed it and said I picked a nice one. He said it went in easy, was good quality and well designed. He put the fan on a timer and the light on a switch. Didn’t hook up the nightlight because I didn’t have another switch and I really didn’t need it as I already have another.

Gave 4 stars due to not having motion or humidity sensor. The fan moves a lot of air, can be adjusted up or down and has an LED light (earlier versions I've purchased did not have the light). The residents of the apartment the fan was installed in appreciate the functionality of the fan.
