You can also check that the back of the motor is clean of debris. i have the same issue but i recently cleaned the back of some cat hair, not too much and it seemed to be ok now. i never had this problem until about 6 yrs after i bought the fan so i know it isn't a heat issue or sensor control issue or it would have done that from the start

This thermal switch may be of the type where it is saving power by turning off motor when air is sufficiently cooled. You obviously want the air cooler, so you can place a wire across the two terminals of that switch to defeat the power save. If the switch is to prevent motor over-heating, however, then you cannot jumper that switch. Do this test: open back to locate switch. if switch is located directly on motor housing, then that switch is cannot be jumpered out. if switch is located in air stream, then it may be possible to jumper it out. Try the jumper and observe for many operations of fan useage to ensure jumper is safe. Ensure no bare wires or electric terminals exposed when done.

    added: if the motor is really not over-heating, then the switch is over-sensitive and it may be replaced...what is the current draw on fan's nameplate? If 5 amps or less, the switch may also be jumpered out for continuous operation, after ensuring that motor is not getting hot ever.

Sounds like the mass air flow sensor or the air intake temperature sensor. Sometimes just wiping out the throttle body/air intake can make all the difference

I would guess that the motor is pulling to many amps, it could be to small (not the horse power as should be), could be bad incorrect fan blade (to many blades or pitch on blades) over loading the motor. I have seen fan motors get to hot and stop from a dirty coil. Take a garden hose and a nozzle use a solid stream carefully watching the fins don't bend by high water pressure. Throughly clean the coil every inch or it. Hope this helps.

Patton PRH11 Buzzer Sounds on HIGH after 2 minutes


There is a round sensor under the heating elements which sets off the alarm when it thinks it is overheating on the PRH11. Unfortunately, a dirty sensor will fool it into reacting like it is overheated. I cleaned the sensor which was dark and revealed it to be a lighter goldish maybe brass in its original color. If your sensor is dark, it will continue to trip the alarm for overheating and will need to be replaced. If you were lucky like I was and can clean it, the problem should be resolved and it will operate like normal until it gets dirty again. This procedure lasted for 3 days and I had to clean it again. I believe I left the dirt on too long and now my sensor has tarnished plus I live in a rural area with significant dust requiring this recleaning every few days. I only used a damp paper towel with water to clean. Cleaning may work better with alcohol or a tarnish removal solution.
