Maxxair fan blowing fuse

Recommended Posts

The Maxxair fan stopped working with the manual buttons on the fan, but it did work with the remote.  Then it started to make beeps every 10 seconds or so.  I checked the fuse and it seemed partially blown, if that’s possible.  I put in a new fuse and the same thing happened: beeping, working with remote and not buttons, and the fuse seemed blown again.  Any ideas for something to try to troubleshoot this?  The fan is 16 months old so still under warranty.  Thanks for your thoughts and ideas.

Since it’s under warranty, I’d talk to Oliver about getting a replacement control board. Mine did the same with the remote working but not the buttons and a new board did the trick. It’s a pretty easy DIY if you don’t want to bother with taking your trailer in for service.

FYI here are pics of my board. Check Youtube, there is a video by a guy who repaired and modded his due to condensation damage. The IR sensor for the remote  extends down into a clear bubble. I don’t think you would necessarily have to do his entire mod, but drilling a tiny drain hole there is mandatory. IMHO.

BTW, the guy in the video camps in -30 degree F temps, for us mere mortals, especially those in a dry climate, his coating mod is optional. For those Ollie owners who routinely winter camp in frigid temperatures, do this!

Thanks for sharing this video. 
It’s 2020, Maxxair reeeeeally needs needs  to step up their game and produce a much more reliable higher quality product. Complaints about the Maxxair fan seem to be a regular bane.
