My wall is too thick for this fan. 512
I found out after I bought the fan and fully installed it that my wall is a little too thick for the fan. I can't get the other grill on and I have about an inch of open space around the fan (it's blowing into the wall) Is there a way to get around this without buying a different fan?
"Use a different unit? " - that doesn't seem too helpful.
They don't even suggest another, applicable Broan product? (smh)
Dan, I would suggest to measure the ducting and try to find suitable extension with the same diameter at your local parts house. If you cannot find a suitable size, you may need to fabricate one from an oversized piece of ducting with a pair of tin snips and tek-screws. Keep in mind, that you may need to make the extension on both sides to create a good mate between the two halves.
I am also struggling to find a through wall fan to fit a 7.5" wall in my shop. You would think Broan would offer an extension duct that they could overcharge us for. have a nice day!

can I add 4" ductwork to vent this fan outside
I am looking for a sidewall vent fan for a log cabin. The fan needs to be a wall mount fan but have 4" piping so that it can be run up the wall. I am a hvac contractor so I understand static pressure.
Thank you for your question regarding the 510 exhaust fan. This unit cannot be connected to 4 inch duct to be vented outside. If you are looking for a wall mounted exhaust fan that can be ducted with 4 inch duct, we would recommend the LP80. If you need further assistance, please call Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

can see trhough need some kind of screen
i installed this fan between 2 bathrooms/ laundry rom and the problem is that we can see from one bathroom to the other. I put in a aluminum grease screen from one of your kitchen vents but we can still see through. do you sell a non see through screen for model 510
I asked this question before but under the wrong model the 509s so it wasn't answered correctly
Thank you for your question on the model 510 through the wall fan. The aluminum grease screen (part number 97010271) would be the only filter available for this unit.

The installation manual indicates that both the 510 and the 511 are the same size.
Even though the 510 has a 10" fan and the 511 has an 8" fan. Is that correct? In one of your previous answers, you stated that the two are different sizes, which is at odds with the installation manual.
Thanks for the clarification.
Thank you for your question on the models 510 and 511 room to room fans. The 510 and 511 use the same unit housing and require the same size wall cutout. The description of eight inch and ten inch has to do with the actual diameter of the fan blade on each fan.

Is the 510 fan a suitable replacement for a 511A?
I have two 511A fans mounted in a plywood frame in a double-hung kitchen window that were installed in my NYC apartment in 1989. They have never really pulled smoke out of my galley kitchen. Could I replace one of the fans with a new 510 and seal the second space? Are there any obstacles you can think of?
Thank you for your question on the models 510 and 511. The 511 is an 8" room-to-room fan and the 510 is a 10" room-to-room fan. The sizes of these units are different. You can view the specifications on our website for each model. These are not exhaust fans, but fans that move air from one room to the next room. If you need an exhaust fan, you may want to look at the 508 or 509/509S as a replacement.
