    Rated 1 out of 5 by This product is poorly designed Bought this for my 81 year old mother; she used it 3 times and the pull chain broke. Had to flip the breaker to stop the fan from operating and tape something over the opening as we could no longer close the flap. Removed and inspected fan - the ball chain is secured by a flimsy piece of metal that snapped in half - see no way to repair this so will have to modify - seriously? This is on a second floor so have to borrow a ladder to fix a fan we have owned for less than 45 days and used thrice - so not worth it. Very, very disappointed at this shoddy design and workmanship.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful Exhaust fan My Cigar Lounge exhaust fan. Installed this fan through a sliding window, built a wooden frame box for the fan since I didn’t want to cut open my drywall. I bypass the switch to always on and controlled by a outlet switch with a wireless remote. Place a screen to prevent bugs from coming in since damper is always open, closed with pull chain if bad weather occurs. Cigar smoke is cleared quickly. Only issue it is noisy. Thank You Broan for a excellent product. April 6, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed. Had an upstairs bathroom,in a 150 year old house,with a mold problem. This easy to install fan.was just what I needed. It has solved my problem,with just a little basic work. March 26, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome vent Excellent service and an amazing vent! March 27, 2012
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Okay purchase The fan for the most part is okay but the clip that holds the chain to the door is flimsy or weak and after using it for only a few times the clip that holds the chain broke. I redesigned the clip that holds the chain to one that is more sturdy and it has been working fine so far. April 22, 2011
    Rated 4 out of 5 by nice product I bought this fan as a retrofit for old brick townhouses in baltimore city. After some custon metal work the fan worked nicely just measure everything first n make sure you order correct size n folllow direction and you'll be enjoying your fan soon thanks for reading.

    I need a new J box cover and switch lever. It is the same idea as this one but the lever is longer and mounted to the side. Any help would be appreciated.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on through the wall exhaust fans. Although through the wall fans are very similar to each other, the internal parts would not particularly be interchangeable. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Is it safe to use this fan around paint fumes? Is the motor brushless?

    507 wall fan that will not turn on

    Customer avatar

    dalehogs
     on 507
    we have a 507 wall fan that will not work. It would run at lower speeds intermittently and then return to high speed all on its own for a few days. Now it won't turn on at all. I have used a multimeter to ensure that there is electric power at the plug and it reads 117.8 volts. Therefore, I'm assuming that the issue must be the switch or the motor. The switch does not seem to click or go all the way up once the switch trigger is released out of the way by the chain. Could you please advise on what to do next to pinpoint the problem?
