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?
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.
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.

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.
