    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 5 out of 5 by 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 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. February 28, 2010

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.
