Question about Panasonic Dryers

1 Answer

What could be the cause of the fan not ventilating the room?

We purchased a house recently that has a Panasonic model FV-11VHL1 and it does not ventilate the room well at all. Moisture accumulates in the bathroom with runs on the wall on drips on the ceiling.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: Our new bathroom fan is not clearing the room the

I use to be a chimney sweep. One of my jobs was to clean vents for dryers and bath vents. What could be your problem is that you have a bird nest in the vent system. It sounds to me that you have a vent on the roof for the fan. A bird could have damaged the cap to gain entrance and built a nest. With the cap gone, rain can come in. With the nest, it will not vent out the room. You could call your local chimney sweep company and they will clean it for you. Or if you are capable, Lowe's or Home Depot sell dryer vent cleaning rods. They are sturdy but flexible rods with a 4" brush on the end. Two other handy tools will be a high power shop vac to **** out anything from inside the vent, and a high power blower that has vacuum capability to use out side the house. Cafe full though, if it pulls out a nest, it will shoot it out with great force.

The heating element and heater fan in our FV-11VHL1 vent unit stopped working. How do you get at the heater box assembly to replace the fuse or thermostat? It appears to be screwed together to the heater...


Hi Ricatoni,

The procedure for doing it as as follow , patience is required..:)

First you should remove the cover by pulling down and squeezing the wire arms on each side.


Then You need an extra long screwdriver to remove the entire motor/fan/light assembly from the housing (8 screws total).

Place the assembly on the floor and look for the fuse on top.

The fuse is on the motor and not near the heater portion.

It is a ceramic, not glass, cylindrical fuse, 20 amps, 125 volts.

This fuse is sold as a microwave oven fuse & costs about 2 bucks at a hardware store.

Then you can replace, hence reinstall and then you're done.

Hope this helps ..:)

Not getting enough heat from my panasonic fan heater


Since the heater takes in room air and then heats it, the heater coils inside may very well be clogged with dust & lint. Turn off the circuit breaker that feeds the heater. Remove the front cover and carefully vacuum the interior with a brush attachment. For those areas that the brush attachment can't reach use canned compressed air (like you clean your computer with) with a straw nozzle to blow the dust and lint out and vacuum again. Replace the front cover, turn on the circuit breaker and you should be ready to go.

Burning smell coming from heater. what could this be? no smoke and goes away when heater turned off


You will need to unplug it. Take a vacuum cleaner and get as much of the dust out as you can. Use a high speed fan, and try blowing it out. Plug it back in, and see if that will remedy the situation. Otherwise you may have to take off the houseing and clean it out. Also, it could have a short that you are not seeing, so check the wiring also.

Panasonic Whisper Warm Installation


The vent fan must be exhausted into the outside air via a 4 inch flex duct, this may be difficult if installed in the wall!

Panasonic Whisper Warm Heater Thermal cutoff. How to reactivate?


I had the same problem and mine was cause by a blown fuse. It's not too hard to fix. Remove the cover by pulling down and squeezing the wire arms on each side. You need a VERY long screwdriver to remove the entire motor/fan/light assembly from the housing (8 screws total). Place the assembly on the floor and look for the fuse on top.
