    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Speed Control is nice touch! Fine product and works well! I would make one cosmetic suggesstion: the faceplate should have a cap or enclossure to "close" the top of the plate as it looks like it's missing one - seems unfinished.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working flawlessly Easy to install, quiets fan noise as the speed is lowered. Very reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install, Great Option Installed in series with the Broan 350 roof mount attic ventilator. The 350 is designed for 1050CFM but my application in a small greenhouse had an intake rated for 550 CFM. The 72W allowed using the 350 by controlling the speed. Result is well controlled greenhose and quiet fan operation.

  • Model 72W on GFCI-protected circuit

    I plan to install a Model 72W Variable Speed Control with a Model 12C Motodor fan. Would there be any problem putting this combination on a grounded GFCI-protected branch circuit? I want to avoid nuisance tripping of the GFCI.
    Asked by: Vini Vidi Vici
    Thank you for your question on the model 72W solid state speed control and 12C through the wall fan. As of this time, we have not heard of any problems arising from the use of these two products together on a GFCI branch circuit. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
