Questions & Answers
I have a fan serial #FV08VKS2 is it the same as #FV08VKS3
Yes, the Pansonic FV-08VKS2 has been discontinued by the manufacturer and has been replaced with model FV-08VKS3 with the latest upgraded features from Panasonic. (This unit is a direct replacement)
Can I use this fan on the wall to replace an old fan. And what does it mean by continuous run....does that mean it never shuts off at the lowest level? What wall switch is needed and does it come with the fan?
The Panasonic FV-08VKS3 is designed as a continuously running fan for ventilation in large buildings such as commercial buildings, offices, etc. For residential use, or use with a control switch, a fan model suitable for "spot" ventilation is recomended. This fan will run continuously even at the lowest level.
For a comparable 80 CFM WhisperGreen model fan with "spot" ventilation control, refer to the Panasonic FV-08VKM2 (click here to view)
The Panasonic FV-08VKS3 has built-in controls (including an adjustable delay timer set from 30 seconds to 60 minutes) on the side of the fan junction box to accurately control the speed of the fan. For a visual representation, please refer to the additional images above.
For applications where an off-time is needed, this fan can be wired to a timer box, or to a 120V electrical switch.
