    Q:Is there a way to lower the sensitivity of the motion detector on this unit? it is too sensitive.
    by|Apr 22, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  No, unfortunately the motion sensor does not have the ability to adjust sensitivity. I have had people use a piece of tape to cover half the lens so that it would only activate in the toilet or shower area and not pick up someone walking down the hall.

      Q:How do you wire two of these fans to a single switch? The instructions state 'When one switch is connected with two or more products in parallel, the unit may not function. Therefore, parallel connections should not be allowed.'
      by|Apr 5, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  In theory this fan should not be run through a wall switch as it always needs power to be able to sense the humidity in the room or motion to activate. If the switch is turned off the fan will not have power to sense humidity or motion and turn on from standby to high speed to clear the room when needed.

        Q:I want to replace Panasonic FV-05VFM2 with a Panasonic model that provides higher CFU and a adjustable timer. What model is recommended and can I simply replace the motor without having to replace the housing box?
        by|Feb 24, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Panasoinc does not offer a slide in replacement motor with different characteristics than the original unit. This is due to how the units are UL approved. The motor plugs on each family are unique and not interchangeable.

          We bought one for our other bathroom about a year ago on our electrician's recommendation, and it's made such a difference in keeping the humidity levels down. We loved the unit so much, we just bought another one a few weeks ago for our second bathroom. Cost a bit more than other ceiling fans, but worth every penny of it! PROS ===== 1. The unit can be wired to always be "hot" (always powered on) so no wall switch needed because it will only turn on when it senses motion and/or senses a certain level of humidity (user settable). 2. The unit its extremely quiet. We have it in the bathroom right next to our bedroom and when it occasionally turns on (either from motion or humidity level), it does not scare/wake us at all. CONS ===== None so far We highly recommend this ceiling fan! Please note that there are also some similar Panasonic models that don't have the humidity sensor feature, so just make sure you get the Panasonic model FV-0511VQC1 if you want this feature. There is also a model with a light in it, but we didn't need the light. The light adds about $100 to the cost of the unit, and I'm not sure if that model has the humidity sensor in it.

          Wonderfully quiet fan with speed control and motion/humidity sensor. Solves the problem when family members forget to turn the fan on when taking a shower.

          So far so good. Used 4" hosing. It's definitely not noisy. Effective.

          Have purchased over 10 of these fans for bathroom remodels. They are my gold standard bath fans. Quiet, efficient, adjustable 3 ways (humidity %, CFM, & Motion timing) love the personalized control ability. Highly recommend.

          Some part design is just so dumb
          The overall quality of the product is decent but cover design is just so dumb. It's a simple clip on, and there are many ways to design in a cheap fashion. But this product chooses a awkward design that makes it hard to take off and clip it back on. Depending on the angle, the metal hanger thing on the cover can be really tricky to put into the supporting structure. Very frustration experience.
