Whole house fan does not draw air

Everything seems to work, fan moves hi and lo, but it does not have any draw of air. I can stand right underneath it on hi and it won't even move a piece of paper on my hand. I had a whole house fan in my last house and it really caused the air to move in the house. What should I do?

Hi my Therma-Stor is not working, the motor makes a humming noise but does not move. Do you no what could be wrong with it? Thanks


Check that the fan blade is not binding on the inner surface of the fan housing preventing rotation. If the blade is free to turn, then it is likely a motor or motor-capacitor issue. Call Therma-Stor service for help diagnosing this problem and for service parts 1-800-533-7533.

Continuous squeeky noise from underneath the burners.


Permanently? A fan will come on when using fan forced, another fan will come on(approx 5-10 minutes) later, which is the cooling fan,and can run for up to an hour after turning off. Turn off oven at mains to determine if it is electrical related fault.

Is the unit on the return side or the supply side of your system ?
Is the system upflow or downflow?
You are right in your assumption about the air needing to be drawn through the Humidifier, now before changing the direction of the motor, we need to look at if the unit should be moved to the other duct, its alot less complicated, now when the fan comes on from the furnace, you have no trouble heating the house right ? if that is the case then moving the humidifier to the other duct would be your best bet, if your heating for some reason is only comming out of the return then yes you will need to change direction on the fan, but I would bet that moving it would do the trick for ya, I have only run into a couple of fans that actually were running the wrong way, thats why I asked, well anyways, you will need some tin, zip screws, tin snips, maybe a little more wire, let me know what ya find, I really appriciate your question back to me, anymore question please ask ! thanks again.

My tall Cinni standard fan isn't working. When you switch it on you can hear the motor trying, but the fan blades don't move at all. It's boiling today in my office, so we'd like to know what might be up...


Stage 1: unscrew 2No. top and bottom nut/bolt put to one side, lift 4No. hinge clips and remove front cage.
Stage 2: partially unscrew spindle screw on fan body then slide fan off spindle.
Stage 3: plug in fan turn to setting '1' (lowest setting, the motor will hum but not rotate) now with a hammer 'carefully' tap the spindle so that it is aligned within the housing, it may need to lo left, right, up, down whatever direction it needs to sit centrally withing the bushes of the front and rear housings. Then tap the end of the spindle which sometimes re-engages/realigns the spindle within the rear bush.
Stage 4: reverse of stage 2 & 1
Good luck

Lack of humidity


Try the following test, ( I will resume this is a flow through humidifier)

Spray water directly oin the filter make sure it is saturated. Some water should leak from the bottom. After 10 min measure the Humidity to see if this helped. If there is a higher level of humidity the pbm is that not enough water is saturating the filter. Check the level of the filter & water feed nozzle.

Option 2 is to connect the water feed tube to a Hot water source.

Hope this helps.
