    Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems to work most of the time. The fan works just fine. Sometimes the flapper outside sticks and don't open right away. The installer has been made aware of this problem. October 16, 2015

    Rated 4 out of 5 by 270 CFM through wall vent fan Product was received in good time and just as described. Installation was easy with the included instructions and is very satisfactory in air movement and quiet operation. This fan was actually installed to ventilate an industrial lab and is serving the purpose perfectly. April 7, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by bath exhaust fan I cut this fan thru a finished wall in my bathroom. It was very easy to install and it works just great. I would recomend this unit to anyone. March 28, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality fan These fans work great have 2 installed w/variable speed and t-stats. P.S. Be sure to put line voltage t-stat ahead of v/s switch!!! June 7, 2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied I purchased the broan 508 to solve the moisture problem in a 200 sq. ft. hot tub room. It was fairly easy to install and it works great. This fan has power and it's a little loud on high so I suggest getting the variable speed switch. I only have to run the fan at about 3/4 power. December 7, 2011
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Fan working well for kitchen exhaust I bought this fan to exhaust our kitchen which otherwise had no means of clearing cooking orders from the room and this part of the house. I realized that this fan was probably over-sized for the room but, as planned, with a variable speed dial, we can run it at mid-speed. It is working perfectly for the intended use. It is a quality product. September 10, 2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 by A Tornado this fan removes air, great for removing odors from kitchen cooking July 12, 2011

    fan balance

     on 508
    I just installed the Broan through the wall model # 508. The fan is out of balance, vibrates and transfers that noise to the surrounding wall. Is there any way to balance or have the blades balanced to reduce the noise level?

    Thank you for your question on the model 508 through the wall exhaust fan. The fan blade is plastic and should come balanced from the factory. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 12C through the wall exhaust fan. The 12C is designed to mount in walls that are 5-1/2” to 9-15/16” thick. It is not designed to have duct work attached to it and we cannot recommend installing this unit different than the installation instructions state.

    The instructions say cut a 6.375" hole thru the outside wall for installation. What size hole do we cut on the inside wall?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 512M through the wall exhaust fan. The 512M can be installed in outside walls up to 10 inches thick. Walls less than 6 inches thick will not use the adjustable duct. If you are using the adjustable duct, cut a 6-3/8 inch diameter opening in the inside wall. If you are not using the adjustable duct, cut a 6-1/8 inch diameter opening in the inside wall.

    Grill Screw Post

     on 512M
    Will you please provide me with the size and thread style of the Screw post that the grill screw on to. I set the unit back too far in the wall and I need to find a bolt coupler in order to extend the length of the Grill Mounting post for the unit. Unless there is something that Broan sells that accomplishes this.

    Which exhaust fan should I purchase the model 508 or the model 12C

     on 12C
    My sunroom is approximately 11 X 20 with 10' ceilings. Being a smoker, I want a fan that is large enough to remove all smoke but is still quiet. I have reviewed the Broan model 508 (270 CFM through-the-wall exhaust fan) and the Broan model 12C (motordor 360 CFM wall exhaust fan). Which fan will be the best choice for my application?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 508 and 12C through the wall exhaust fans. For your sunroom, the better product would be the 12C. Neither one of these units would be quiet, but the 508 would be slightly undersized for the room. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
