  • 12C is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good This Broan replaces a Nautilus 509 we bought 20 years ago. ( It is the same, so I think Broan took over the Nautilus product line.) The Nautilus worked great and except for the knob to turn it off and on-which after 18 years wore out, we made a new one. We replaced THE Nautilus as the bearings were starting to make noise and the gasket in the hood for the exhaust lever had begun to disintegrate. But after 20 years??!! It was the only fan we could find that included the exhaust hood and direct vented outside and was pretty much a 'plug and play' with the set up for the Nautilus. We did however, take out the whole Nautilus product and completely installed the NEW Broan which wouldn't have been hard if the directions were followed. (READ THE DIRECTIONS-IT MAKES IT SO MUCH BETTER) If this product holds up like the old Nautilus, when it needs to be replaced in the future, it will be someone else's decision.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work most of the time. The fan works just fine. Sometimes the flapper outside sticks and don't open right away. The installer has been made aware of this problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fan The online installation guide showed a round hole through the wall; the unit actually needs an 11 1/2 " square hole, which is easier anyway. Installation was straight forward and the fan works great. One note: the variable speed switch doesn't work well with this fan, as the exterior door will close when the power to the fan is reduced. It's much quieter than the exhaust fan on the microwave. Last night we turned on the exhaust fan to to pull cool air in the windows to cool the house. Great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Broan 12C Wall Exhaust Fan Excellent exhaust fan! Powerful and reliable. I have had this model in my hot tub room for 17 years. The unit runs 8-12 hours per day without failure, the power louvers are great for preventing cold air from re-entering the house. I highly recommend this unit for any room requiring full and repeated air exchange. If the unit was quieter, it would receive 5 stars.

  • Damper gets stuck closed

    How can I fix the damper so it will open when the fan is turned on. This unit is 5 years old and runs very well. However, this week I noticed the damper won't open. I have to open the window and pull it open.
    Asked by: Val
    The damper on my fan would stick to the weather seal also. Try this. This isn`t easy, but I held open the damper, and I applied caranuba car wax to the damper and rubber seal it touches when closed. It has worked great. Spaying silicne on it did not work as well.

    508 duct vent into Attic?

    We purchased the 508 direct vent over a years ago for another applicaiton that we chose not to move forward with. Today, we are rennovating our 3rd floor apartment and would like to use this vent with duct connection to an attic vent. Is this possible?
    Asked by: Dianne
    I live it Marietta,Ga mine is vented in and unfished attic which is ok according to our local building codes. I suggest you check with your local building inspector or code inforcement dept.

    Regarding the 12C. Is this a variable speed fan? Two speed? Three speed?

    Asked by: Mac
    Thank you for your question on the model 12C through the wall fan. The 12C is a single speed fan, but the speed can be controlled by a solid state speed control, our model 72.

    What is the maximum temperature this fan can be operated in?

    I want to use this to ventilate a hot garage - the garage can get to over 110 degrees F.

    Which exhaust fan should I purchase the model 508 or the model 12C

    My sunroom is approximately 11 X 20 with 10' ceilings. Being a smoker, I want a fan that is large enough to remove all smoke but is still quiet. I have reviewed the Broan model 508 (270 CFM through-the-wall exhaust fan) and the Broan model 12C (motordor 360 CFM wall exhaust fan). Which fan will be the best choice for my application?
    Asked by: Cisco
    Thank you for your question on the model 508 and 12C through the wall exhaust fans. For your sunroom, the better product would be the 12C. Neither one of these units would be quiet, but the 508 would be slightly undersized for the room. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
