Question about Cfm 802 Ecofan Table
The problem could be with the thermoelectric module. You can easily test if this is the case by trying to run the fan off of any household battery. If the fan works off the battery then the problem is definitely with the thermoelectric module.
They are easily replaced by taking the two halves of the fan body apart. Just be sure to use CPU heat sink compound (thermal grease) on both sides of the new module before you reassemble the fan.
You can get the peltier modules from Thermal Enterprises by contacting them through email to email@example.com or searching for Ecofan Repair on eBay. The CPU heat sink compound (thermal grease) is available at any "Best Buy", "Radio Shack" or electronics store.
Hope this helps.

My stove fan has been getting progressively slower over the past few weeks and I've been concerned because it's only one year old.
I have read the remedies on this website, as a result of which I did connect a small 1.5v (AA) battery to the terminals of the motor and found that the fan rotated fast and freely.
Therefore, the only possible problem had to be with the thermo-electric module. I tried to disconnect the top half of the fan stand., i.e., the bit with the air-cooling fins. (The flat thermo-electric module is sandwiched between this half and the bottom half.)
I discovered, to my frustration, that this is secured by two 'Allen' screws of a most unusual size. (3.5mm). I managed to find a flat-bladed screw driver which fitted the top of these screws and, to my amazement, I found that both screws were loose!
I tightened both screws carefully, by the same increment as each other, so as to keep the top half in level contact with the module. Both screws were really tight when I completed the task.
I then placed the fan back on my stove and I am delighted to report that it is now spinning so fast that it is trying to take off!!
The moral of this story is - check the tightness of your screws!!
Good luck & kind regards, Jimmy.
