FV-11VQ3 panasonic fan is not working properly

We have just installed the fan and even if we stand underneath it and blow smoke into the fan, it sucks air very lightly - something clearly is not done right during the installation

I called panasonic and they said to take a look at the damper to make sure it is opening, as well as the ventilation flaps on the outside

but he said in order to get to the damper I have to remove the unit - is there an instruction guide a how to - or will I find it straight forward - if you could let me know I would really appreciate it

    Are there any filters on the unit?

I found this installation manual:

http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/rewilliams/fv05vq3.pdf

There are detailed pictures of the whole fan assembly in it.

I dont believe there are any filters - I looked outside and the flaps were open and also looked like the damper was fully open - so not sure why it is not as powerful as I thought it would be

I do not see how to get at the lightbulb in my Panasonic Whisper Fan/light. I can not see any way to open the cover where the light is. What is the procedure?


Hi, I searched the web for answer and finally got it from the installation manuel. You have to take the whole cover off, not just the cover for the light. Below is the website for the installation manuel. ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/pub/Panasonic/business/building-products/ventilation-systems/pdf/install/08VFL2-E.pdf

The answer is on P.13-14.

My Panasonic FV-11VQL2 seems to have the damper stuck in the closed position. The fan does not exhaust well, ever since we got a new roof (vent and 4" duct too). Any way to unstuck it without going into...


Hubby went into attic. The roofer did a poor job installing the new 4" duct and roof vent; duct was poorly attached and pinched at both ends. He redid both connections, and now the fan works well----no more foggy, drippy mirrors!
So, the fan is fine------the installation of the new roof vent and duct was shoddy.

Cleaning the blades


An air compressor would work. It might be a bit too powerful for it.

Those cans of air they sell in office supply stores might work too.

Installation of a Panasonic Fan FV-05VFL2...


If you are not very handy I don't think I'd tackle this project. There's going to be drywall cutting, backing to install, attic crawling, wiring, ducting to attach, proper insulating. As an electrician I've done this sort of thing in between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how smooth things go. If you find somebody you trust that's done it before who is willing do to it on the side for cash you're looking at $25-$60 for labor. Is it worth it to you?
