Does this fan have a thermostat so it will come on automatically? Is that is what is considered other controls?
Thank you for your inquiry. You might be hearing a back draft damper that is being affected by over pressurization of your house on a windy day. It would help us to know the model number of your product which can be found above the grille on the ceiling. If you cannot remove the grille, contact us in the Technical Service Department at 1-800-637-1453 for further assistance with your questions. We'll be happy to assist you.

I just installed the 35316. It's 68 degrees in the attic. I set the thermostat to 70 degrees, and it does not come on. Good. I set it to 80 degrees and it comes on. Same thing for anything higher than 80, it stays on, even though the attic temperature still at 68. I expect it would not turn on at all until the temp rises. Is this a defective unit or am I misunderstanding this? Thanks.
My unit has performed in the temperature range on the unit. Attics get very hot quickly in my geography--the power used by my model Broan is roughly equivalent to a 100 watt (or less) light bulb, I've been told.

15 amp breaker
I just installed this Gable fan in my garage and it keeps tripping my breaker. This is rated for 3.4 amps and there is only 1 light on the same line which is an LED light.
The fan was running for several hours before it tripped the breaker. Now it trips the breaker the second it starts.
I'm wondering if it could be a bad motor causing it to pull to much and tripping the breaker.
Has anyone else had this issue?
Thank you for your question on the model 353 gable mounted attic exhaust fan. From your description it sounds like a wiring problem or defective unit. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.
