Question about Fantech EDF5 Intellitek 5MR Control for HRV/ERV's White

2 Answers

Is EDF5 required to have intermitant running of Fantech HR 2005R?

Installed SHR 2005R on new HVAC system (indoor exhaust from hallway return air and with fresh air into house thru return air trunk before it turns down to filter and air handler). Wired per Alternate Accessory Control Contact as in manual (to exterior COM, N.O. & N.C. contacts). If I set to low or medium with rocker switch, furnace fan runs continuous along with HRV fans. If I set rocker switch to stand by it does not cycle on when furnace comes on and blower is running. Is there a way to wire the HRV to operate any time the air handler is running (heat or air) but not operate continuous as it does now when rocker is set to low or medium (which also runs air handler all the time??

In my case I didn't have to get additional controllers to make it work intermittently.

I wired it to my Honeywell VisionPRO IAQ thermostat interface, which has 2 dry contacts for ventilator. They should be wired to the "dehum" contacts on the Fantech system.

Then you'll have to control it via the thermostat on timed operation or leave it on "Auto" and will automatically circulate based on your settings. I hope this helps.

The SHR2005R will turn on the furnace Blower if the furnace is not running to circulate the fresh air. The reason the furnace will not trun on the HRV is, the purpose of the HRV is continuous Ventilation in your home. It should not be turned off when your furnace is not running. That why Fantech has not design the HRV's to run that way. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Fantech FD60EM electronic timer control makes a loud buzzing sound and does not operate the fan

This timer appears to be Leviton LTB60
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

Timer has 1 year limited warranty, evidently from manufacturer.
If timer is making humming sound, then it is defective, possibly receiving undervoltage on the line, or wiring installed incorrectly.

Switch noisy timer with one of the other timers, and see if problem follows the timer, or is related to the specific location.
Otherwise replace with LTB60 from Amazon for $24.
Or buy Intermatic Ei200 timer, or replace non-electronic with spring-wound timer such as 60-minute Intermatic FD60, or 30-minute FD30, etc.

I installed a woods indoor timer model 59018 on a 3 pole circuit for my outside lights. The lights would not work until I installed a jumper wire from the red line to the white line of my other wall...


Woods 58018 is White-colored 120Volt 7-day programmable timer that replaces single-pole switch only.
I am not certain what is meant by 3-pole circuit.
If you mean 3-way circuit where more than one switch control same light, as you find with hallway light, then 59018 is not correct timer.

Open following links to see list of timers suited for 3-way switch replacement.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59028
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15312
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#ST01C

Timers that work for 3-way do not replace 3-way switch wire-for-wire.
Read manual carefully.
When you replace 3-way switch with a timer, one 3-way switch is replaced, and other 3-way switch remains.
The remaining 3-way switch is always rewired so the 3-way timer works. AND each brand of timer requires slightly different wiring parameter.
Some 3-way timers can only replace the 3-way switch located closest to circuit breaker box, commonly called the LINE side. Others can replace either LINE side or LOAD side 3-way., and wiring is different for each. Some timers require neutral wire and some are battery-powered.

Add a comment with exact information about switch and wiring you are working on for suggestion of best timer for that purpose.

The 15 min timer doesn`t work anymore tried getting a new switch and still nothing. Any suggestion?


Fan or electrical wiring or power source are suspect.

Fantek RTS2 is supposed to boost HRV/ERV system into high speed for 15 minutes.
http://www.iaqsource.com/category.php/fantech-ervs-and-hrvs/?category=1494

If new RTS2 is not working, then either the wire to HRV/ERV system is suspect, unit is not getting power, or the HRV/ERV system is suspect.
If you are using RTS2 for ordinary ceiling fan, then install regular on-off switch and see it that works.
Check that you are getting power to switch and to fan. Check circuit breaker.

We installed a new ceiling light fixture in our hallway. I used the 13W CFL bulb. Just recently, I turn on the light and a hour or so later it turns off. It takes a few minutes before I can make it turn...


DON"T USE TILL YOU FIX- the connections inside fixture are getting hot and expanding- OPEN SHORT_FIRE HAZARD- that is why going out after an hour and then works after a few minutes of cooling- take down and check you connections

My intermatic timer won't trip back on


I don't think the timer runs on 240 volts does it? You can switch 240, but the timer uses 120 volts to run. You might check the connections and timer clock rating more closely. Also, the 'off' & 'on' trippers are different, make sure you use the right one.

Size of vent pipe


You will be fine with 2 bends in an 8 inch pipe. If you bend it more than 3 times though you will loose fan force. If you up to a 10 inch duct you will not have good fan force because the space is bigger.

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!
