Exhaust Fan in Kitchen Ceiling

There is a huge exhaust fan in the kitchen area. It has a rotary switch that does nothing when I turn it. My past experiance (limited) with my coach (I'm a newbie) tells me that Monaco always has numerous ways to turn things on and off. Before I tear into trying to get this fixture working I need to ask the experts, Is there is a switch/button/sensor that may be in and/or around the kitchen area that really controls the workings of this exhaust fan.

thanks...Pat

There should be a separate thermostat on the wall to control that fan.

IF like ours, there should be a fuse next to the numbered "speed control" on the fan. Diagonally across the fan is a knob that opens/closes the outside cover??
This cover must be opened at least 2 inches for fan to operate. MOST IMPORTANT - there should be a "box" mounted on the side wall that looks like an a/c thermostat with a sliding switch. Graduated from 60 to 90 with an OFF position??????????? This controls the fan based on the speed selected at the fan.
Some of these fans have a "rain detector" and automatically close - ours does not so perhaps others might chime in.

Sounds like a "Magic Fan" we went through the same thing when we bought our Winnebago. The dealer had to point out the thermostat. The one in the bathroom has a switch.

I have a 97 Dynasty and the fan is also controled by a thermostat on the wall in that area. There should be an on-off switch on it and a knob to set the temp to come on at. The switch has to be set to on and the temp set to something lower than the current temp in the coach. Then you set the fan speed on the rotary switch on the fan itself. If it still does not work check the fuse in the front run panel. Check your owners manual to find which fuse.

We have one, too......couldn't figure it out till we asked our RV guy to take a look at it. The 'thermostat' on the wall was the answer.....works great, too.

You guys are GREAT. That is EXACTLY what it was and it does work just fine. I thought it was an old wall thermostat that was left there when the factory installed the Aqua Hot System.

Now we'll actually use it.

Thanks again for all your help.

Pat
