Question about Air Conditioners

I have an Advent fan in my downstairs toilet and it has stopped working.It has a separate pull cord to the light. This is right next to the fan. I have taken the cover off and checked the wires are secure in both the fan and the pull switch.All seems ok. I am at the point of needing help, any ideas??

You will need to test the fan motor and switch to make sure the motor does not have an open winding or that the switch in operating properly.

Can not get fan on to turn on. All else fine. heat only furnace. No air conditioning...only air circulation.I used to set it on "Cool" and "Fan On"and get air to circulate. Do I need new thermostat?


Since you have two thermostats that operate the heating unit and the fan, and the fact that neither will turn the blower on, I would suspect the furnace/ air handler. Turn the thermostat to heat and see if the heat and the fan comes on, if it does operate normally in heat, the fan relay or the high speed on the blower is most likely the culprit. (If the furnace is equipped with a circuit board, the fan relay is integral to the board, if it an older furnace it has a separate fan relay). If it does not operate normally in the heating mode, verify power to the furnace, see if the flame comes on, if it does: the fan motor, circuit board or the fan relay are most likely the cause. hope this helps!

I moved into a place that has a MasterCool Evaporative Cooler on the roof. The ownstairs is quite comfortable so I really only need to cool the 2nd story.... it seems as if all the cold air settles...


jbrown - Hot air rises, Cold air falls. If you have ceiling fans upstairs, turn them on to run counterclockwise at highest speed you can stand. Make sure all the windows are closed upstairs. The ceiling fans will help to keep the cool air upstairs and pull some from downstairs.

If you don't have ceiling fans, invest in a box type fan that you can place at the head of the stairs (that's the top of the stairs) run it on HIGH and it will act like an exhaust fan, by pulling cool air upstairs. It may take a while, but it will help cool the upstairs to some degree.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Installed the Altura 56" fan (56ATR), worked fine at all speed until we put on the light. Everything worked fine for about 10 minutes, then the fan stopped working, but the light stayed on. Kept trying...


both the fan and light have a common connection .. usually all the white wires are connected at one wire nut .. check to see if the fan wire has pulled out of the wire nut ... remove the wire nut and re-tighten it .. pull on each wire to make sure each one is secure ..make sure power is off before working on this ...

My ac blows warm air upstairs only but not downstairs in winter


Sounds like you have a zone system? Is it a bypass type? If it is the fan speed of the heater must be to slow to override the bypass damper. Wire the fan to operate at a single speed same speed as on the A/C.

A/C blows weak/low volume of air through vents


I f it is fan that has more then one speed if you run it all the time,it may
not be on high sample : low fan speed runs all the time
med fan speed for heat
high fan speed is usually for air conditioning so if everything is good then it maybe the relay.

No air flow upstairs


Cold air is denser than hot air, so is harder to move. All vents have some mechanism to regulate flow, so close all of the downstairs vents. Check to see if your furnace fan motor has more than one speed, & set it on maximum. Keeping the fan on all the time will help as well. If all else fails, you may need a more powerful fan motor.
