    After ten years of faithful service, my attic fan stopped working. I've checked to be sure it's getting electrical power. Is there a fuse or something I should check before installing a replacement?

    Hello,

    Do you see a red button on the back of the fan?

All attic fans, by enforced standards and codes, have a thermal fuse. Most are one time fuses wich trip usually when resistance to the motor reaches a peak point. This almost always happens when your motor gets older and needs to be replaced. Resistance occurs and progresses when dirt,dust, grime ect build up on the once freely spinning system. There are some savy folks on the web that get into soldering on a new fuse but at the risk of time, fire and electricution... you'll be better off buying a replace motor and putting your faith in the professionals.

On/Off switch may be in the attic, or somewhere else in your house. You may have to go into the attic and unplug the fan.

Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?


There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.

Replace old attic fan motor, or replace the entire fan assembly.


I am assuming you replaced your fan by now. However in the future call Gibraltar Industries, they are the ones who manufacture all fans and motors. My attic motor fan also died and I first called Ventamatic and they wanted $65 for a new motor. I then called Gibraltar and they shipped one our for free. 800-527-1924.

Dayton Attic fan running backwards


First see if the switch has a reverse position. Sometimes you turn the fan assembly in the frame, sometimes you turn the whole frame around. Take the cover off the wiring compartment to see if there are instructions there. Also check on the name plate on the motor, there may be instructions there. Attic fans are usually engineered to blow out.

Attic fans


I just fixed a Broan-353 with a similar problem - the fan was short-cycling, turning on and off within a minute or less.

These fans have a thermostat which is designed to turn off 10 degrees below where it's set to turn on. Apparently, one failure mode is this temperature delta stops working I've had this happen twice, each time after about 3 years.

Replacement thermostats are available from Broan for about $30 http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop It's a 10 minute repair if you have easy access to the fan.
