Kitchen Ceiling Fan Inop

My kitchen ceiling fan will not work. The fuse is good, the cover is cranked open and the three speed switch at the fan is on, but the fan won't come on. The bath fan has a separate wall switch. Is there a wall switch for the kitchen fan?

In my coach there is a switch on the kitchen cabinet next to the hot water switch

Over the years I have had 2 fans fail in 2 coaches. If your switches and fuses and power are okay, most likely the fan.
I would see if will work with direct power, but would not advise it to you if you dont want to get sparked. Dont wanna risk an iRV2 friend.
I had one on a popup that just needed cleaning and oil.

Mine has a rocker switch for both fans as well. Same location as others stated. Check the fuse panel for the fuse for that circuit as well as the fuse on the unit. I think it is rare for a Fantastic vent to fail.

My switch is also located under the water tank switch under the counter. If that switch is okyou might check the fan cover interlock switch which occasionally sticks in the down position.

I agree with Ken--interlock pin was stick down.

On my coach the kitchen fan is controlled by a thermostat next to my refrigerator. It's weird. I have my 2 zone digital thermostat which controls my heat and AC. right above it is an older style thermostat that controls that fan. I can set it for 75 degrees. If the MH heats up above 75 it kicks the fan on. That's how mine works. 2001 diplomat. 38A
