    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 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 5 out of 5 by I brought this about year ago .It works fantastic because I have a wood burning stove and it will take any smoke out. January 20, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. January 20, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 3, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 21, 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Piece of plastic garbage Extremely disappointed; literally fell apart after 5 months of moderate use. Miss my high quality NUTONE stainless steel! December 2, 2009

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

    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.

    Answers

    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.
