  • 508 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good This Broan replaces a Nautilus 509 we bought 20 years ago. ( It is the same, so I think Broan took over the Nautilus product line.) The Nautilus worked great and except for the knob to turn it off and on-which after 18 years wore out, we made a new one. We replaced THE Nautilus as the bearings were starting to make noise and the gasket in the hood for the exhaust lever had begun to disintegrate. But after 20 years??!! It was the only fan we could find that included the exhaust hood and direct vented outside and was pretty much a 'plug and play' with the set up for the Nautilus. We did however, take out the whole Nautilus product and completely installed the NEW Broan which wouldn't have been hard if the directions were followed. (READ THE DIRECTIONS-IT MAKES IT SO MUCH BETTER) If this product holds up like the old Nautilus, when it needs to be replaced in the future, it will be someone else's decision.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

  • 508 duct vent into Attic?

    We purchased the 508 direct vent over a years ago for another applicaiton that we chose not to move forward with. Today, we are rennovating our 3rd floor apartment and would like to use this vent with duct connection to an attic vent. Is this possible?
    Asked by: Dianne
    I live it Marietta,Ga mine is vented in and unfished attic which is ok according to our local building codes. I suggest you check with your local building inspector or code inforcement dept.

    Damper gets stuck closed

    How can I fix the damper so it will open when the fan is turned on. This unit is 5 years old and runs very well. However, this week I noticed the damper won't open. I have to open the window and pull it open.
    Asked by: Val
    The damper on my fan would stick to the weather seal also. Try this. This isn`t easy, but I held open the damper, and I applied caranuba car wax to the damper and rubber seal it touches when closed. It has worked great. Spaying silicne on it did not work as well.

    fan balance

    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?
    Asked by: Caveman
    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.

    does this have an integrated on/off switch or does it have to be wired to a wall switch?

    Asked by: dogface
    Thank you for your question on the model 508 utility fan. The 508 does not have an integrated switch. It would need to be connected to a wall switch.
