  • 506 is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made junk Chain broke off the flap after a couple weeks and I had to reattach it. After a few months it stopped opening up right away, due to the spring not being strong enough I suspect. It now takes a few minutes of running before it swings open. Have also had the chain break a couple of times over the first two years. I would rather pay twice as much and not waste a bunch of time dealing with this junk. How could the previous fan make it 60 years, and this one is ready to tear out after a couple years?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exhaust fan for work shop I installed this in an old basement window opening, it took a little framing to install but overall it went in really easy. My initial thought is, it is what I was looking for. Once I had it installed, I turned it on, and to me it is quiet, I lit a match and it seems to pull and move the air. I would recommend to others, my room size is about 200 square feet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from I brought this about year ago .It works fantastic because I have a wood burning stove and it will take any smoke out.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not manufatured correctly I had this installed by an electrician replacing a current fan. It should have bee a very easy installation. However the fan blades were too big for the housing. They all had to be trimmed to make the fan work. Once this was done the fan works fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from kitchen fan The kitchen fan was the exact model of the one that needed replacing. I hired a handyman to install it and it took him 2 and 1/2 hrs to do the job. He had some difficulty with getting it to fit. The fan works well but the chain is a little tricky to operate with turning on and off. Overall I am satisfied with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price Best price I could find on the internet and in stores. Easy install/replacement. Only thing I wish it came in different colors, but I will paint the cover once I re-paint my kitchen. Quick shipping and great follow up.

    Pull chain intrference

    With the grille aligned vertically, the vertical radial strut pnches against the chain and stops.It from moving aside to release it. . I gave to mount the grille at an angle to avoid this problem. Is something nit installed right?
