Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

My nu tone bathroom fan with heater is stuck "on" . It seems like the dial may be stripped but when I pull off the dial, I still can't get it to turn off. I'm afraid it could be a fire hazard

SOURCE: Smell of electrical burning.. no more heat in house!

First of all keep this in mind.
You will need to locate the wires that got hot. If you can't or if your not sure, I suggest that you call a service company. If they ok the unit and it catches on fire after wards, their insurances will cover you unit and or home if god forbid it burns. This is to be on the safe side.
Now, this is where I would look. Your element should be on it's on circuit. There should be a disconnect within reach of the air handler. Some are fused and some are not. The wires that got hot enough for you to smell them should show signs of being hot like the plastic will be melted around the wire. You said that the heater was running. Was this the first time you have used it this year? If so, are you sure it was not the dust burning off the elements? They will smell like something burning when you first turn them on each year. Although if your sure you smelled wires getting hot, please continue looking for just that. Keep in mind that the elements have 220 volts coming to them. It comes into the unit and go to a switch or relay. From there the power goes to the elements and then to a neutral. These are the wires you will need to pay the most attention to. Good luck.

SOURCE: fan will not turn off

With your breaker on, the system selector switch (at your tstat HEAT/COOL/OFF) in OFF and the Fan Switch (ON/AUTO) in the AUTO position, Trace the wires from the Blower Motor to the blower relay. Try tapping gently on the relay using the plastic handle of your screwdriver/nutdriver. If the blower shuts off, the blower relay is sticking and needs replaced. Fortunately, this is a problem that will allow for the system to continue to control the temperature while you are awaiting your new part to arrive.
This is the problem for 90+% of the problem you are describing. If this does not resolve your problem, let us know and we'll look into another area.
Good Luck in your endeavor! :-)

SOURCE: won't fire

It may also be the high temp switches under the 2" inlet/outlet header. The 150 degree high-limit switch sits horizontal and corrosion happens often there. But be careful removing as if the header is corroded and the switch is also, water will flow out , so be ready to bypass the heater. You will have to replace the header. Try to jumpe that switch out and I'll bet the heater fires up.

It sounds like you have indeed bought fluorescent bulbs. manufacturers are encouraged to replace the incandescent bulbs with more energy saving fluorescent bulbs. They are made to look like standard bulbs so you need to look at the package carefully to see the difference. The Nu Tone and other special bulbs may still be available in the old filament style for a while but you may have to look harder or ask if they are still available. The amount of flicker often reflects the quality of the bulb. It will sometimes decrease over time.

I have an ATXSTF OXN Gateway that was used for dial up. I have ATT Uverse.I can't seem to switch it over. It keeps saying that it can't find a dial tone. Can you suggest how to switch it?


Not sure, but consider it just like a regular land line phone. So connect the line to the modem and plug a phone to the line port. You should get dial tone. The modem may need to re-seated or re-installed if there is no dial tone.

From your description, it sounds like the pull chain ON/OFF switch is broken.Admittedly, this is the first time I have ever heard of a pull chain switch being on an electric heater, But, I guess it is in the ceiling and not wired to a wall switch, it's the only way to turn it ON or OFF. I wouldn't think that replacing the pull chain switch would be that difficult or expensive to replace. Most home centers and hardware stores sell this type of switch for use in ceiling fans, The key would be removing the faulty switch and taking it with you to buy a new one. You want to be sure that the new switch matches the amperage and polarity of the old switch.

As far as the unit only being a year old and the switch failing so quickly ... it's in a warm moist environment 24 hours a day. It doesn't surprise me that the switch broke. You might want to consider replacing the pull chain switch with a hard wired wall switch. Certainly, it would cost more than replacing the pull chain switch, but you'd never have that problem again.

I hope this helped you, Mary. Please let me know.

Does the motor for a nu tone bathroom fan #86933-000 supposed to have 2 mounting studs opposite the shaft end? 8664RP


Yes. This motor has two studs opposite to the shaft.

Here are some pictures:
http://bit.ly/8YIowa

It is actually a better value to purchase the motor assembly S97017706 or S97017705, both fit.

Nu Tone Bath Exhaust Fan - QT-110N-B - motor vibrating


You can buy just the motor assembly. You would remove the grill. Usually there is a plug to disconnect the motor. Remove screw(s) and the motor and fan assembly will come out leaving the rough in housing in the ceiling. I did not locate your model number as you listed it however the QT line has numerous model numbers. Here is a link to the nutone page. You should be able to purchase a "trim kit" which would include the fan,motor,and grill. You can either buy it on-line, or you might try an electrical supply company.
