How did the fan come off the attic fan mount?

It's about the attic fan blade again, how do you think it came off. As far as I can tell, the house was built in 1988, it's the only fan installed since, did it just wiggle off? Any idea on what size allen wrench to use?

Yes, I think that it just wiggle off, because it is lousy mounted.
Please check all the mountings and thigt them.
Get an allen wrench set and check it.
I'm sorry.
Thank you

How do we install a solar attic fan to our house?


If you have basic carpentry skills it is a 6 on a scale of 10 for difficulty. You must cut a hole in your roof, install the fan and flashing that comes with the fan then replace the shingles that were removed in the process

We have recently purchased an older home, built in 1931. There is a whole house fan in the attic that we would like to get working again. We do not know when the fan was installed or who made it - however,...


What and interesting situation. I have seen installations like what you describe, but not in a residential application. Industrial applications that had very high ceilings and in very old apartment buildings, But not in single family resident. I suspect, that the previous owners "acquired" it through unusual circumstances.

In any event, 1/3 horsepower electric motor is not that hard to find. The real key is getting the right rotation, so the blades will pull the air up and out instead of in and down. Remounting a new motor coupled with the right pulley size for a fan belt ,can control the speed of the fan. Rarely are hold house fans direct drive. Which may be the case with yours, I don't know.

As far as a new 1/3 Hp motor is concerned, I would recommend Grainger Industrial Supply
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/start.shtml. They have locations throughout the country and their staff is knowledgeable. They can probably help you with designing a belt & pulley system, to control the speed, if necessary. Keep in mind, 2-speed motors are also available.

Redesigned properly, you can do away with that horrendous shaft.

Hope this helps steer you in the right direction. If nothing else, food for thought.

Blower in attic & AC unit outside continuously run


Sorry to hear about your miss-fortune, you are right it is an wiring problem. Can you turn off the blower with the thermostat (cool-off-heat) or what happens when you switch the fan to (auto or on) When you say the outside unit is "rigged" is it mechanically being jammed or electrically? If its mechanically that should be removed (what a crappy thing to do) other wise it will run continuously as you may already know. That is what it sounds like, you should just be able to shut the entire system down by turning off the switch to the furnace. If it is electrically being held closed, he changed some of the wiring around in the attic unit, you better hope he was lazy and jammed a stick in the contactor in the outside unit or else you may need to learn more about HVAC wiring, none the less I would double check the thermostat wires going to the attic furnace there should be nomenclature on the unit or at least somewhat marked. This was probably disturbed when the new blower was installed, by the way that was your initial problem. Good luck and becarful

The fan blade came off my attic fan, a Leslie


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.

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.

Installation of a Panasonic Fan FV-05VFL2...


If you are not very handy I don't think I'd tackle this project. There's going to be drywall cutting, backing to install, attic crawling, wiring, ducting to attach, proper insulating. As an electrician I've done this sort of thing in between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how smooth things go. If you find somebody you trust that's done it before who is willing do to it on the side for cash you're looking at $25-$60 for labor. Is it worth it to you?
