My wall is too thick for this fan. 512
I found out after I bought the fan and fully installed it that my wall is a little too thick for the fan. I can't get the other grill on and I have about an inch of open space around the fan (it's blowing into the wall) Is there a way to get around this without buying a different fan?
"Use a different unit? " - that doesn't seem too helpful.
They don't even suggest another, applicable Broan product? (smh)
Dan, I would suggest to measure the ducting and try to find suitable extension with the same diameter at your local parts house. If you cannot find a suitable size, you may need to fabricate one from an oversized piece of ducting with a pair of tin snips and tek-screws. Keep in mind, that you may need to make the extension on both sides to create a good mate between the two halves.
I am also struggling to find a through wall fan to fit a 7.5" wall in my shop. You would think Broan would offer an extension duct that they could overcharge us for. have a nice day!

Can a thermostat be used with the 511 to have it automically kick on and shut off?
I have a wine cellar where the through the wall cooling unit is dumping the warm air into a living space. I would like to dump some of that warm air into an unfinished space. The cooling unit is not on 100% of the time so the fan would not need to be on 100% of the time.
Thank you for your question on the model 511 through the wall exhaust fan. You can use the 511 with a line switchable thermostat.

how to make this fan blow the other direction
have this fan in wall between the living room and kitchen. Was blowing warm air from living room into kitchen. Fan quit, and replaced it but the air is blowing in other direction. How to change direction?
Thank you for your question on the Broan 511. If the motor that was replaced was the direct replacement motor the air would be blowing in the same direction. Please call Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453 so we can get a better understanding on what motor was used for the replacement and how it was mounted.

can I add 4" ductwork to vent this fan outside
I am looking for a sidewall vent fan for a log cabin. The fan needs to be a wall mount fan but have 4" piping so that it can be run up the wall. I am a hvac contractor so I understand static pressure.
Thank you for your question regarding the 510 exhaust fan. This unit cannot be connected to 4 inch duct to be vented outside. If you are looking for a wall mounted exhaust fan that can be ducted with 4 inch duct, we would recommend the LP80. If you need further assistance, please call Technical Support at 1-800-637-1453.

can see trhough need some kind of screen
i installed this fan between 2 bathrooms/ laundry rom and the problem is that we can see from one bathroom to the other. I put in a aluminum grease screen from one of your kitchen vents but we can still see through. do you sell a non see through screen for model 510
I asked this question before but under the wrong model the 509s so it wasn't answered correctly
Thank you for your question on the model 510 through the wall fan. The aluminum grease screen (part number 97010271) would be the only filter available for this unit.
