  • ILF120 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product I have in my home 4 of these fans for bathroom exhaust. They are so quiet that I have look at the timer light to see if the fan is on. All 4 have been in service for 15 years without the slightest problem. I installed two of the NuTone 6" fans as exhaust fan in my shop. They are great, mounted above the ceiling you can barley hear them. I highly recommend them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This unit is extremely noisy This unit unit was installed by the builder of the condo where I live or by the previous owner. The fan is located in the basement and is used as an exhaust to the clothe's dryer which is located in the first floor. This fan is attached to the rafters in the basement. The problem is, this unit is extremely loud and and produces a lot of noise in the areas near where it is located. Not a low noise unit as the manufacturer claims.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bathroom Fan Fan installed easy. All parts expected and needed were there. nice and quiet. I will likely get more for the other bathrooms although will likely get the 6" duct version.

  • NuTone ILF 150 is very noisy

    I live in a condo and the previous owner or builder installed a NuTone (ILF120 model) fan in the basement to ventilate the clothes dryer which is located in the first floor. The unit was attached to the rafters in the basement. The problem is, this unit is extremely noisy and produces a lot of vibration which can be heard throughout my hole place, especially in the master bedroom which is directly above the area where the fan is located. I have tried to put some padding around the unit but the noise is still the same. The previous owner did not leave a user's manual. What can I do? Thank you for your help

    To be fair. I think I have found an acceptable solution to the problem. It came to me that the fan might be plugged with lint and for that reason the motor was working extra hard. Although it's not easy, I was able to clean most of the lint out of the fan. To clean it, I had to disconnect the duct pipes leading into the fan. You need to disconnect the power to attempt the next step. Once the power was disconnected, I was able to get my fingers in the fan and started taking large chunks of lint. I was also able to get a hose from my vacuum into the fan and that finished the cleaning process. Put everything back and repeated the duct pipes. Not an easy process, but that seems to be the only way to cleaning and eliminate most of the noise problem. Now the motor is quiet enough that it doesn't bother me anymore. I hope this helps others.

    can a speed control be used on this motor?

    Asked by: rj868
    Thank you for your question on the model ILF120 in-line fan. You can control the speed of the ILF120 with a solid state speed control. We have a model 57W (white) or 57V (ivory) that would work fine.

    What is the maximum distance that you can run the vent on a ILF120 or ILF130

    Asked by: "Chewby"
    Thank you for your questions on our in-line fan models. The duct work for the ILF120 using 4" round duct can run approximately a distance of 25'. The ILF130 using 5" round duct can be run approximately a distance of 55'. For further information on either fan, and the specific duct requirements needed, please contact our Technical Service department at 888-336-6151.
