  • 505 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New bath fan The fan runs great. But, in place it is a bit louder than the demo fan was at the home improvement store. The only issue we have is that the dampers do not automatically close without some manual coaxing. Do not know why this is or how to remedy the problem. It was also missing one of the small rubber stops for one of the dampers when it came out of the box. We discussed this with the store where we purchased it and they informed us that Broan Customer service should take care of that at no cost. Upon notification to Broan they promptly shipped two rubber bumpers at no cost. We are very pleased about that.

Total installation time was about 2-1/2 hours for me as a homeowner (non-professional). The appearance and quality is excellent and it moves plenty of air for my small bathroom.

  • Will this fan take a quieter motor ?

    I bought this fan and didn't realize how loud it is. Can I just swap out the motor for a quieter motor ? Should have checked the specs.

    Thank you for your question on the model 505 vertical discharge fan. The only parts available to fit inside the 505 housing are the original replacement parts. This model provides 180 CFM but you can use a solid state speed control to dial down the speed and control the noise if necessary. Our model 57W or 57V would work perfectly. You can see this model on our website at www.broan.com and find dealers to purchase it from as well.

    can I reduce the duct work down to 4 inch on the 505 bath fan

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the model 505 vertical discharge fan. The 505 requires eight inch duct work. You cannot use anything smaller than eight inch.

    Is there a radiation damper available for this fan?

    We'd like to use this fan, along with the grease shield to replace the existing kitchen ceiling exhaust fan in an apartment complex. However, we need a radiation damper that fits it to maintain the 1 hour ceiling rating.

    Thank you for your question on the model 505 vertical discharge exhaust fan. Although there are numerous fans in our line that would accept a radiation damper, the 505 does not. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    I received a response saying my question has been answered but was not

    When clicking the link or going to your web page it shows the question has not been answered. below is a repeat of the question. Would you recommend the Broan 505 for my bathroom? Is there any downside to using this over a squirrel cage designed one? My bathroom came with a similar fan that I’m looking to replace. The 505 is nearly and possibly the same fan. Because I have an 8” duct and the hole in my ceiling is the same I was hoping this would be a good choice. The difference I can see with bathroom fans are the squirrel cage design verses utility fans fan blades. The CFM are good and I can live with a little extra noise.
