    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

    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?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 506 chain operated through the wall exhaust fan. The chain from the exterior door gets routed over the switch trigger plate and then through the chain lock. When you release the chain from the chain lock the spring operated outside door will open and the switch plate trigger should lift off of the on/off push button, turning on the fan. The installation instructions are available for download from our web site and they show a picture of this. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your question on the model 506 through the wall exhaust fan. The 506 operates with a pull chain and is only designed for one speed. We do have a model 12C that is rated at 360 CFM and you can use our model 72 solid state speed control for variable speed or the model 78 for four speed operation. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 506 through the wall exhaust fan. There is no additional sleeve to make the 506 work in that thickness of wall. We would not have a through the wall fan that will work in a 12 + inch wall.
