Question about Cfm 802 Ecofan Table
My fan only turns very slowly , moving very little air.
These fans can be rebuilt! Like many others, our fan died after being placed in the center of the stove top. I took the two halves of the fan body apart, and scraped the heat sink compound off either side of the power plate. I then applied CPU heat sink compound that can be found at any computer or electronics store liberally to either side, and put it back together. The fan spins like new, spread the word!

Send me its technical description. It may be due to weak capacitor. Replace it. First check that it is rotating freely by free hand(without electric supply).

I had the same problem, Ecofan 800 Original was moving slowly.
I tested the motor with a 9V battery to find it was still functional.
I separated the two halves, cleaned off the old heatsink compound and reapplied new compound.
Placed the fan on the stove and it was as good as new!

Fan just quit, replaced motor in early spring so figured it was heat sink. Tested motor with AA battery, worked well. Took fan apart, cleaned heat sink with damp towel, put back together. Works like new again. No cost other than 10 mins of time. Thanks

Mine also stopped so I took the 2 halves apart (black pieces) cleaned the parts, blew out some dust, put it all back together, and right now am watching it spin away, thanks to Nathan's solution.

Cut the wire and hook it up to a dc battery(aa, c or d) and if your fan works it is the
thermoelectric TEG module.
i bought mine off ebay from thermalenterprises. hooked it up and it worked perfect. the are 17-25 bucks
depending on what model you have.
