Fantastic Fan home remedy

Recommended Posts

Checking Ollie systems prior to a long outing and discovered the nine year old vent fan would not turn on.  Crud!  Power to unit OK  because hood went up and down and internal fuse is intact. Internet search found the fix. (Gotta love the Web for research)

 

Release 5 screws that hold inner shroud and drop shroud.  Unscrew fan blade and remove (take it inside for a good scrubbing in the kitchen sink)

 

Find the thin silver plunger that tells when hood is down on the forward street side of unit and manually move up and down several times.  Wipe down with cleaner and spray with electrical cleaner stuff in a can.

 

Reverse removal process.

 

Turn on fan. Smile!

 

Avoid departure delay and $100/hour service fee.

 

Life is Goooooood

I was holding the little Whisker Britches up because his legs are too short.

You sure make that pup work hard for his kibble....

 

Good post. Thanks.

 

On another note, we broke that little cover with the five screws this year. When I called Fantastic vent, I was connected to Dometic. Apparently, they bought the company that bought Fantastic several years ago. Still a somewhat separate division, but parts now need to be ordered from a distributor.

 

Nothing stays the same... And Dometic has purchased a lot of the suppliers.
