Hi: I have an bathroom heater fan, Thermosafe model:3208,(new Zealand) one day i found out that i could not turn it on, it even not make the "clip" sound (this heater wasn't designed...


From your description, it sounds like the pull chain ON/OFF switch is broken.Admittedly, this is the first time I have ever heard of a pull chain switch being on an electric heater, But, I guess it is in the ceiling and not wired to a wall switch, it's the only way to turn it ON or OFF. I wouldn't think that replacing the pull chain switch would be that difficult or expensive to replace. Most home centers and hardware stores sell this type of switch for use in ceiling fans, The key would be removing the faulty switch and taking it with you to buy a new one. You want to be sure that the new switch matches the amperage and polarity of the old switch.

As far as the unit only being a year old and the switch failing so quickly ... it's in a warm moist environment 24 hours a day. It doesn't surprise me that the switch broke. You might want to consider replacing the pull chain switch with a hard wired wall switch. Certainly, it would cost more than replacing the pull chain switch, but you'd never have that problem again.

I hope this helped you, Mary. Please let me know.

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch


My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

Don't even bother to repair the pull chain switch, get a new one at KMart, HomeDepot or similar store for less than $2.
Two times I've repaired one, it comes apart when I need it the most.

The pulley chain broke on the light on my ceiling fan and there is no slack to turn the light on or off. Can you please tell me how to fix or replace pulley?


To replace chain switch with a new one (available at a hardware store), first turn off power to the fan. Unscrew the nut on the bottom of the fan which holds the coverplate in place. Find two wires going to the switch, pull them out of the enclosure, take the wire nuts off. Now you can take the old switch out by unscrewing the locking nuts that hold it in place. Put the new switch in by reversing the instructions for removal.
Good Luck.

Pulled chain to slow down fan speed. Chain came out of the housing. Yikes. What should I do? Perfetually have the fan running or can I take it apart and fix it?


Turn the fan off at the breaker. Is there any chain still hanging out? If yes, buy new section of chain at hardware store. If no, buy new pull chain switch at hardware and replace.
