Plugged in my fan, but it does not work. Is there a fuse that may have burned out?
First, is there power at the outlet? If so, try another outlet. There's a reason for this, but I'm trying to keep this simple. Now, let's say that the outlet isn't working, then check and see if there's a switch operating this outlet. If so, then turn it on, and you should have the outlet working again, along with the fan. In addition to this, also check your circuit breaker to make sure it hasn't been tripped. Also, it's a stretch - but if there's no power at the outlet, you could have a tripped GFI breaker (normally in your bathroom) that is wired through your rooms for added grounding protection. Okay, you've done all of the above - and still nothing. With the fan unplugged, take apart the fan and see if all the connections are good. If so, your fan motor could be bad. Its at this time if you see if there's a fuse in there. I'm not sure, but you'll see a fuse holder in the housing when you take it apart. But I'm not sure if they have a fuse with this fan. Also, there could be a reset button, but again, with this model, I'm not sure. But being an electrician, I usually find a lot of problems with fans being something other than the fan itself. This is why I check the other factors first. It takes a few minutes, and easy to work with before having to take apart the fan. Good Luck to you, and I hope this helps you. Feel free to contact me again if you have any further questions. Jim
