If the fan blade is on properly, then you probably have the wiring reversed. If you connect a line from motor to red box wire, and other motor line to black box wire, it will turn clockwise. If you reverse the wiring it will turn counter-clockwise ;-)

Look at the blades. The flatest edge is the lead edge. If it isn't running backwards, turn the fan around.

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.

I am not drawing air at my AC return\intake installed in ceiling. I just replaced the fan motor in attic. Is the rotation on this motor need G to be reversed? If so, how?


Chances are that there is a plug on the motor that switches from ccw or cw, usually black and white wires. If motor is running backwards reverse the plug

I just bought a new motor and installed it but now


Centrifugal force.....If you replaced the motor only and not the blades, the blades are likely out of balance or possibly bent. Check for wobble and to see that the shaft is fitting tight inside the blade collar.If there is a bushing on the fan blade or shf itself, check it for play as well

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.
