Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of plastic garbage Extremely disappointed; literally fell apart after 5 months of moderate use. Miss my high quality NUTONE stainless steel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price Best 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from kitchen fan The 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.

  • 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.
