Broan 506 Reviews
Rated 4 out of
kitchen fanThe kitchen fan was the exact model of the one that needed replacing. I hired a handyman to install it and it took him 2 and 1/2 hrs to do the job. He had some difficulty with getting it to fit. The fan works well but the chain is a little tricky to operate with turning on and off.
Overall I am satisfied with the product.

Great PriceBest price I could find on the internet and in stores. Easy install/replacement. Only thing I wish it came in different colors, but I will paint the cover once I re-paint my kitchen. Quick shipping and great follow up.

Piece of plastic garbageExtremely disappointed; literally fell apart after 5 months of moderate use. Miss my high quality NUTONE stainless steel!

Can I hardwire this and not use the chain, meaning could it be operated with a wall switch only?
A. The Broan 506 is designed to be operated with a pull chain only. The 510 might be a better model for that type of installation.
Is there a cover to put over the fan when not in use
A. The Broan 506 does not have a cover that you can put over the fan when not in use.
Can you mount this in the ceiling with a direct discharge through the roof vent?
The Broan 506 is not designed for a vertical/ceiling installation as it meant for a through-the-wall applications only. However, the Broan 504 is designed for a vertical/ceiling installation, with the only caveat being that it's not actuated via chain pull and must be wired to a on/off switch. Broan mentioned to me that they do not manufacturer a ceiling-mounted exhaust fan with a pull chain.
