  • 509 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    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 5 out of 5 by from A very fine fan The Broan 509 is a very fine fan. Couple comments: - I needed a strong fan with a separate variable speed control. It was easy to find the Broan 512M fan which is advertised as working with the 57W/57V speed control, but the 512M is only 6" and 70 CFM, too weak. It was less easy to find the 509 which is 8" and 180 CFM, and I had to ask to determine whether the 57 speed control works with it, which it does. Broan could do a better job of marketing here. - The installation instructions say to transfer the initial drill hole from inside to outside, but that's not accurate enough to make the outside fan hole match the inside one, and if they don't match you're in trouble. If I had used the initial drill hole mine would have been off by nearly an inch. To get it right, make the inside fan hole, insert the metal cylinder so it touches the inside surface of the exterior wall, then drill several holes at the circumference and use those to position the outside fan hole. - Once installed, this fan looks, sounds, and performs very nicely in every way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Im a fan of this fan This is a great item. It was delivered quickly. It has a nice heavy vent shroud for outside the house. It mounts easily. It really moves air and is fairly quiet.

  • 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.

    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

    My 509-c is not blowing very hard. Have cleaned fan. Does it need to be replaced, or is there other maintenance you would suggest.

    Asked by: George
    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.
