Nu Tone Attic Fan - Starts to turn but stops

My attic fan starts to turn but stops, it appears to be over loaded and then waits a while and does it again. Is this a problem with the motor, the capacitor or the temperature sensor? Model # RF-69NR

    It sounds like a motor problem or it is wired incorrectly. Is it new? Have you had it working for you very long? If so, suspect the motor. The motor can be replaced. If it was recently installed, suspect the wiring.

SOURCE: my nutone attic fan 69nr does not turn on

Hello

Check power from the t-stat to the motor or relay depending on how yours is configured for control voltage. If power is present at the motor. You will need a meter that can read amperage, take a ampdraw on the leads of the motor. See what this reading is, on the motor there should be a rating for LRA (locked rotor amps) if the amp draw exceeds this reading your motor is bad. You may also have a split phase capacitor installed which helps start the motor is so and you have a meter that reads in micro farads you could check the capacitor. the symbol for mico farads looks like a uf. Just make sure you discharge the capacitor to ground with a screw driver or insulated tool, if not it will shock you severly. Another thing you might look for is a reset button on the motor. Most likely this will be a red button somewhere near the bottom side of the motor.

2002 4 ton Bryant air conditioner shuts off, fan still runs but not cooling is problem in the controls in the attic or in the AC unit or both?


With a non heat pump it is a simple 24 volt AC control circuit. In the attic there is a relay that is actuated via the fan control wire directly from the thermostat. On the thermostat there is an auto/man switch that controls the fan. Manual the fan runs all the time. Auto fan turns on and off with the outside compressor.

If the system is not calling for cool and the fan continues to run the fan relay is sticking. common problem. Sometimes after running for several days the relay will stop sticking if not, replace relay.

If the system is calling for cool and the compressor stops I would still expect the fan to run until thermostat tells the A/C to off. Some compressor units include a safety switch or high-pressure cut-out switch A blocked internal valve bad control board or external fan in outside unit defective no air flow in outside unit.
High pressure cut out not good,

Suggest turning temp max cool and observe. If acceptable cool and the compressor runs without interruption all is good, except for the blower in the attic. Safely check relay in attic blower circuit.

Hope this helps.

Can the Nu Tone QTRN110 Exhaust fan be installed w/o access to attic? Mounting holes appear to be only on the flanges.


Hello,
Before you put the metal box up make sure you have a couple of securely fastned pieces of wood there that the fan box will fit tightly between. Then put up the box and run screws through the metal box to hold the fan up. Then install the guts of the fan...

Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?


There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.

Sounds like it could be a bad capacitor (black box on side of motor).

Replace old attic fan motor, or replace the entire fan assembly.


I am assuming you replaced your fan by now. However in the future call Gibraltar Industries, they are the ones who manufacture all fans and motors. My attic motor fan also died and I first called Ventamatic and they wanted $65 for a new motor. I then called Gibraltar and they shipped one our for free. 800-527-1924.
