Tip & How-To about Cfm 802 Ecofan Table

Rebuild the fan when it stops working!

Caframo advertises a feature in this fan which will shut the fan down if it gets too hot, and then start it again when the fan cools down. In fact, this feature is heat sink compound between the two halves of the body (which are each heat sinks) and the power plate between them. That compound breaks down over time and use. If the fan stops working, take it apart and scrape that compound off (it was silver on my fan), and replace the compound with a thin coat of CPU heat sink compound from an electronics store. Put the fan back together and let the compound set up over night before placing the fan back on your stove. Should work like new!

Drive for about 15 mins and car get to a warm temp and then suddenly turns off with no hesitation missing or warning then will not start again for 30 mins when it has cooled down, temp doesnt get hot.


To start with check the coolant level in radiator...Your vehicle is equipped with a head temp sensor that is designed to shut motor down before it reaches temp. that will result in engine damage..If level is ok then i would look at the water pump at being your next culprit.In either case i would definetly check your temp. sending unit to make sure its operational due to the fact you state that vehicle doesnt get hot...Another thing you can check is to make sure that your cooling fan turns when car gets hot...If fan doesnt come (after you have made sure coolant temp sensor is operational) check fan relay located in power distribution box in engine compartment...

when i turn off the car the fan continues to run?


Many cars have this feature. The fan will run for a few minutes at a time until the coolant in the radiator drops below a certain temperature. Most vehicles with this feature will have a warning label on the radiator shroud indicating that the fan may start without warning when the engine or radiator is still hot. The only time you would need to be concerned would be if the fan continues to run without turning itself off, and causing the battery to be drained.

is there a thermostat shut off switch . car runs


The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too
