    I live in freezing conditions. The external damper is freezing and letting in a lot of cold air. could i put an 8" damper inside the external housing to reduce the stream of cold air from entering? If so what would be a good product to get?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 509 through the wall exhaust fan. We have no provision for an additional damper inside the unit housing and there would not be enough room to add one.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question regarding the 509 exhaust fan. Please make sure that the outside damper is opening when you turn the fan on. If the motor appears to be running slow, you will need to replace the motor. The part number for the motor is 99080180. You can order it from the “Shop for Parts” link on the top of our webpage.

    Should I expect significant backdrafts with the model 506?

    I'm choosing between the 506 and 508. I would like the higher cfm of the 506, but I note the 508 mentions that its damper reduces backdrafts. There is no mention of backdraft on the 506. Does the 506 door allow significant backdrafts?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 506 and 508 Broan fans. The 506 and 508 are designed differently in that one has a door and one has a damper. Both however, are designed to minimize backdrafts into the home once installed.

    on-off knob

     on 509
    I remodeled the bathroom and added B-board in the area where the fan is. That created a problem with the control knob because the cover is now about a quarter/inch out from the original installation and the knob is too short.

    I tried re-creating the knob with some success by cutting the original and re-attaching to a typical kitchen drawer pull and some tape but your advice would help. Can I purchase a replacement knob that would accommodate the extra 1/4 inch?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 509 through the wall exhaust fan. The 509 is designed to be installed with the inside flange to be flush with the inside finished wall. The only fix would be to reinstall the 509 so that the inside flange is on the room side of the B-board.
