Atic ventilating fan

My atic ventilating fan is not working. This is our first summer in this house. The fan has a thermostat on it and when I bypass the thermostat the fan does come on. It has been pretty hot here (90 F) so I would think that the fan should be turning on. Could the thermostat be faulty? Can I get parts?

Thank you
Jess

If you are bypassing the t-stat and it is running I would say most likely that the t-stat is your problem. I would need more info on this device to see what options you would have for a t-stat controller.

Hope this helps Ya

Model 854 1946?


pretty good, take that one out along with the attachment bracket and take it to your local hardware store. all that has to match up is the bracket onto the new one as well as the blades and motor not being an bigger than yours, then you'll know it will fit in the ventilation shaft. the electric plug should be the same 2 prong cable.

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?


Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

Can not find directions to reverse fan rotation for summer


it should be a simple slide switch on the side of the housing that moves up and down to change the direction of rotation of the fan motor and blades. look at the manual that came with the fan to make sure it has this feature but i personally have never seen a fan without one.

Yellow wire is light. Blue is vent. Red is heat element and fan after going through a circuit breaker and thermostat. Brown is night light. White is common to ventilator housing. Black is power to switch cluster.

We do not know how to turn the whole house fan on. Does it work through the thermostat on the walll for the air- heat switch?


To turn on your whole house fan, got to you thermostat. Open the door and look for where it says fan, most will have a selector switch to select "auto" or "on". You want it "auto for it to work properly with your furnace and or central air. If you flip it to "on" it will run 24 hours a day none stop, warning this may shorten the life of your fan a little.

I have 120v going to fan ,thermostat has been put on 80 degrees and it still won't work .Do the heat sensors go bad ?


The heat sensor or thermal switch can go bad, so can the motor.
Try a few things;
shut off power going to fan. try cleaning out the thermostat housing using some compressed air on low pressure, or use a vacuum cleaner on blow, or a hair dryer on no heat. you can also spray the inside with contact/motor cleaner(home depot electric dept.) and then blow the thermostat out of any dust or particles that may have lodged inside.
To see if the thermostat works at all, turn power to fan on. Take a hair dryer on heat and place near thermostat - to see if fan comes on.
To rule out a bad motor, the thermostat can be bypassed by hooking up the feed wires to the fan itself, if you're handy with wiring.
Ventamatic web site does list replacement parts for fans... Good luck!

Air and heat have both been running on Hunter 44155C


There should be a switch on the thermostat.
AC-OFF-HEAT
And another switch
FAN ON-OFF-AUTO
Normally, you just set it for heat or AC and set the fan for auto. If it isn't wired correctly, the switches won't make any difference. It will either run all of the time or not at all.
