Q:How do you adjust or fix the damper when it's not doing it's job? I have 2 of these that leak hot attic air all day long in the summer. Damper is not readily accessible. Please help!!

Answer This Question

A:  With the Whisper Fit you can remove 2 screws and unplug the motor plug and the motor will pull out of the unit giving you full access to the back draft damper that is mounted in the duct adaptor. Make sure that the damper is in place and not being held open by any screws or other obstructions.

      Q:What's the difference between this model and FV-0511VQL1?
      by|Apr 4, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  The Whisper Fit is a 5 5/8" deep can while the FV-0511VQL1 Whisper Ceiling is a 7 3/8" deep can. In the fan world the deeper the can the quieter the fan. The Whisper Fit is designed for use with 3" or 4" ducting while the Whisper Ceiling must use either 4" or 6" ducting.

          THIS IS THE ONE FOR RETROFIT INSTALLS! It saved my dupa in my hour of need.
          This fan saved my rear end after a huge amount of pain trying to figure out something to fit into old build, where the fan is almost at the corner of the roof and the exterior wall. The Flex-Z-Fit bracket is a needed part for old-work installs. I wish, I wish that these fans would be labeled with whether they are made for old or new build. I went through THREE other purchases and found out they all required the ceiling drywall to not be there "yet". I was literally thanking God for the Panasonic engineers who included the Flex-Z-Fit bracket. Easy install once I bought this fan. It's not the cheapest but its amazing. Almost inaudible and very effective. What a life-saver.

          6 Months Still Perfect
          I had never installed or removed a bathroom fan before and didn't even know how it worked. On my first try, everything went super well with no issues. Highly recommend for beginners! Also very quite

            Damper doesn't work
            This was supposed to be an improvement. Now I may as well have a hole in the ceiling that just leaks air all day from attic. The damper flap doesn't work. I bought 2 of these and the same result is occurring. They were installed by an electrician in winter, now that it's summer, the fail is evident. Too late for me to return. I do not recommend. They had such promise too. Good light, suction, & quiet when operating. Took thermal images & there is a 20 degree difference. They won't upload.

              After 15 years the bathroom fans needed a refresh. The Panasonic was so quiet we couldn’t tell if it was working. Excellent upgrade
