The fan blade came off my attic fan, a Leslie

The fan blade came off my attic fan, how do I re-attach the blade? There only seems to be a spot for a allen wrench but I don't know what was holding the blade in.

Slide the fan on the shaft. Rotate the blade so the allen screw is over the flat side of the blade and tighten it down. That's it! Be careful how far you put the fan down the shaft so it won't hit the motor or the fan shroud.

My Panasonic FV-11VQL2 seems to have the damper stuck in the closed position. The fan does not exhaust well, ever since we got a new roof (vent and 4" duct too). Any way to unstuck it without going into...


Hubby went into attic. The roofer did a poor job installing the new 4" duct and roof vent; duct was poorly attached and pinched at both ends. He redid both connections, and now the fan works well----no more foggy, drippy mirrors!
So, the fan is fine------the installation of the new roof vent and duct was shoddy.

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.

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.

Dayton Attic fan running backwards


First see if the switch has a reverse position. Sometimes you turn the fan assembly in the frame, sometimes you turn the whole frame around. Take the cover off the wiring compartment to see if there are instructions there. Also check on the name plate on the motor, there may be instructions there. Attic fans are usually engineered to blow out.
