    the lights comes on and the tower rotates, but the fan does not work.

    Same problem as above. I totally disassembled this fan, testing various connections and componants. I found the motor was bad. The leads from the power to the field windings of the motor are the thickness of a few hairs! If one breaks or tears, it's over.

    It is more than likely the thermal fuse between the red and white wire within the motor housing. The motor itself seems to be of decent quality.

I just replaced the thermal fuse in the motor case. You can find replacements at Radio Shack. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12505747&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PPC&utm_term=55048814&utm_content=Exact&utm_campaign=PLA&%7bifmobile:ds_dest_url=http%3A%2F%2Fm.radioshack.com%2Fradioshack%2Fproduct%2Fdetail.do%3FitemId%3d12505747%26utm_source%3dGoogle%26utm_medium%3dPPC%26utm_term%3d55048814%26utm_content%3dExact%26utm_campaign%3dPLA%7d&cagpspn=pla&gclid=CIjo_4_ylrkCFUcGKgodMG0AAA&gclsrc=ds.ds
You will need to open the motor case and carefully cut the heat shrink tube off where the red wire connects to the white wire. I do mean carefully, as you don't want to cut the tiny coil wire soldered to the white wire and the thermal fuse. Cut the old one out, leaving some of the old lead to solder the new one too. Be sure to add new heat shrink tube before soldering the new one in so you can get it all back properly. This certainly took some time and patiance but was better than throwing it out and spending another 60 to 70 bucks.

Replace motor. Probably cheaper and less hassle to buy another fan, unless you are about principles and demand the company replace their subpar motor of an otherwise exceptional fan.

The air speed control switch in my 2003 chevy venture is not working even when I rotate it to high, it continues to run at one speed; is there a fix for this problem?


Do you know what speed the fan is blowing now. if it is on high, then the high speed fan relay could be stuck on if that's the case locate the relay & tap on it with a screwdriver handle or Something of the sort. Otherwise it may be the ballast resistor ( speed resistor) for the fan. It could also be the fan motor itself, but not likely

The fan is faulty. -
Check the fan connector.
- Replace the fan.

Switching between full-speed rotation and half-speed rotation is controlled as described below.
1) Full-speed control
When the CPU on the DC controller outputs a fan full speed signal (FAN_FULL), the fan drive voltage switching circuit supplies a +24 V fan drive voltage to turn
the heat exhaust fan at the full speed.
2) Half-speed control
When the CPU on the engine controller outputs a fan half speed signal (FAN_HALF), the fan drive voltage switching circuit supplies a +16 V fan drive voltage to
turn the heat exhaust fan at the half speed.

E805-0000 (Main body fan error)
When the cooling fan of the main body starts, the fan lock detection signal (FAN_LOCK) has been held at the "H" level for longer than the prescribed time.

After powering on monitor says no sync


I've almost the same problem. When the system turns on the monitor doesn't sync. After a variable trials with down/up the sync is enabled and the computer starts.A very clear event occurs : when the monitor can''t sync ( and system doesn't boot)you can hear very clear a high fan rotation. When I look/hear in the system the Isuspect the cpu fan. The system boots ( monitor syncs) when the fan rotationgoes from high to low. So the system hangs on an internal check on the rotation speed of the cpu fan.I've googled a lot , but until now doesn't find an answer . Possibilties which I think about : replace cpu fan , clean cpu fun ( but it looks clean).I cannot measure the fan rotation speed when the system is hanging. At normal rotation all info can retrieved witth the program cpu-z.Did you already have a solution ?

The fan speed could have a lot to do with the problem you are having. If the speed isn't right the a/c could ice up or not supply the proper air temp. 2 things could be happening here 1st the capacitor for the fan could be going out causing the fan not to rotate as needed This would need to have the capacitor replaced. 2nd. the fan motor itself could be going out on the speed needed for the a/c. Both problems require a tech to check them out. Good luck and hope this helped you some

Rotates in only one direction


There is a small 'slide' switch on the fan body that will reveres the motor. There is a pull chain up there too, pull it once to change speed and again to change speed again.

1st two speeds not working


If the fans rotate on high, then they can rotate on low. So it's either the remote or the receiver that's not succeeding in adjusting the speed. You might try changing the dip switch settings to a different combination and see if that helps. Otherwise, my first guess is that it's the receiver since it has the "brains" of the unit. Also, with electronics it sometimes helps to completely remove all sources of electricity for a minute in order to reset everything. That would mean turning off the circuit that powers the fan for a minute then flipping it back on.
