Whispaire - Fan stopped working

Hello - My Whispaire was running the other night (light and fan) when the fan just stopped running. The lights still work. I checked the wiring per instructions but still didn't do it. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem here. My lights still work on my 6500 but the fan just stopped. if this is a fan motor problem, Can I replace the fan motor myself? Is this a common problem that can only be resolved with a complete replacement of unit? Anyone help please?

You would definetly be able to replace the motor yourself, if your a handy person.

1. You must take off the blade before starting which is only held on by pressure and a mini little metal clip at the tip of shaft.

2. Motor bracket is held on by 4 star/phillips headed screws, two are located under the metal plate the retains all the wires on the right side, and two located on the left side of motor housing.

3. The motor is wired with a plastic connector (plug in plug out). Once motor bracket has been unscrewed and removed there is 4 star/phillips screws holding the motor on the bracket.

Restart proceedure to install the new motor. Part #K7448-000

Fan does not stop running on my 92 VW cabriolet

Take a test light and disconnect you negative lead on your battery. Put one end of the test light on the battery negative and the other end on the negative terminal. If you have a light on the test light then you have a draw. Leave the key off, shut all doors and disconnect your hood light.
Start pulling fuses until the light goes out that will tell you what circuit your draw is on. As for the fan, sounds like someone hard wired the fan to power. Needs to be fixed to OEM

Blank screen although power light on and fan running.


Please force shut down the unit if it still is on. Then, press the power button and see if it starts up.

If that doesn't work, then please disconnect everything from the unit (Battery and A/C) and Reseat the RAM and recheck.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working

It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Nutone range hood fan motor quit

You can remove it and bench test it by applying 120 volts to the fan leads. Do you know how to do this -- it can be dangerous if not done properly.

You can also use a voltmeter to measure resistance and check continuity of the motor coils.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working

Hello jluiken,
The motor in the fan is going bad. Unfortunately it will not be cost effective to repair the item as you will be doing an overhaul on the main component. It would be cheaper for you to just purchase a new one. If you leave the fan on for a long period of time you will see that it will become hotter and hotter, which could be a fire hazard so please be careful. Sorry for the bad news.

If you do not mind, please rate my help, I would greatly appreciate it.Thanks
