Fan goes on and off, automatically... it has it's own mind

Our fan looks like the one pictured.

The fan has started coming on and off randomly.
Yesterday I just turned it to max, then clicked on the other speeds then off and it solved the problem.

This morning it was ON and to no avail did pressing any of the buttons, light, fan 1,2,3 did anything happen.

What Can I do?

My bmw750li has a loud fan noise that randomly comes on. It seems like it happens when I get low on gas. It sounds like a blower going up and down. Could it be an oil filter? Fuses?please help

When the engine temp reaches a certain temperature, the aux fan automatically shifts into high speed. It is a bit loud. Does the fan noise come one while idling for a long time?

2000 chevy impala fan doesnt stay on when i start the car

I assume you mean the cooling fan on the radiator?? The fan should only be on when the motor has reached temperature. Perhaps the fan starts automatically and then if the temp isn't hot enough , it turns off., When the motor gets warmer, it should restart.

1995 Aerostar engine runs hot when stopped . when ac is running it goes the temp. goes up when off the temp goes down normal

I would start by checking to see if the fan is running. With the AC on, the fan should come on automatically. Could be a bad relay, bad fan motor, blown fuse, etc.
Should also check the belts and cooling system.

How to reset thermostat on honeywell gas ducted heater?

You more than likely have a bad fan cycling temperature sensing thermostat. One of the wires to the fan connect directly to the power coming in, the other wire goes through the aforementioned thermostat. Turn the power off, trace the wires, locate the control and replace. Contact a local supplier of that particular brand and they will give you a dealers name. Try a generic one from WWGrainger or Johnstone Supply if you like. With a little effort and a mind for electrical safety, it can be accomplished easily.

Computer Randomly Cuts off

processor overheating. When it gets too hot it automatically shuts your pc down and boots it back up. Even if the fan is running, it could not be supplying enough cool air anymore.

Must hit f2 for computer to work

One of the fan monitors in the BIOS is detecting a problem with a fan.
This would be a good time to pull the cover off the computer and clean ALL the fans. either a fan is dead or struggling. any fan in your computer can be replaced for less than 40 dollars.
Keep in mind that of the fan is weak and goes out, it may take the cpu or a video card with it.

Fan and lights come on and go off all day long on their own

We installed our Broan-Allure range hood about ten years ago. On three seperate occasions since, the fan has randomly turned on and none of the control buttons would turn it off. After a while it turns itself off. During those same times, when you turned the lights on, they would blink before finally staying on. On each occasion, I have removed the screens and metal underpieces to gain access to the circut board. Once you can see the circut board, remove and replace the 3 Amp fuse that is mounted on the board. (Radio Shack part # 270-1054)...even if the fuse looks good, replace it. Each time this has work for about three years, then it acts up again..
