Dash AC fan motor replacement

Has anyone changed the dash AC fan motor in a 1995 Monaco Dynasty? If so, how did you get access to it? Any info will be appreciated.

Do you have a Evans tempcon plastic ox covering you ac unit on the outside of your firewall in the front?

If so you have to take that off to get to the fan cage and remove it.
Then you would remove the fan under your dash.

dash AC fan motor access

It appears that the motor may not be accessible from front of coach. The motor can barely be touched through a small intake grill under the dash to the right of the storage drawers up front and inside the coach. Hoping not to have to remove dash for access.

Thanks for the input.

Buster based on what I remember I have read the dash does need to be taken loose and pulled back on the right side....I know I will get to do this job and I'm not looking forward to it

Thanks for the less than desirable input. I was hoping for an easier access plan, but it appears as though I will have to bite the bullet and pull the dash. A reputable dealer might be the sensible option on this one. Thanks again for all of your input.

Are you possitive it is the motor and not the fuse??? I had the same type of problem . Turn out to be the fuse a bad speed control if you will that looks like it has three springs or coils if you will. Right now i just can't think of name of the part. Anyway this part was the cause of bloeing the fuse. Power was not even getting to the motor as the fuse kept blowing. Food for thought.

I think you are right. I am having the same problem also. I believe it is a resettable fuse. Too many amps are pulled for what ever reason when the fan is on high and blows the fuse. But since it comes back on, it must be a resettable fuse. The cause is something else as other have mentioned, such as a bad fan motor, or a bad fan switch control. The 3 springs or coils you mention is probably the resistor.

In my case I have already replaced the fan motor, the fan switch and the resistor but I still have the problem. I believe that I have a resettable fuse that may have been weakened due to the bad fan motor and fan switch.

Problem is, I can not locate the fuse. I am still looking. It doesn't appear that I have a relay for the high speed.

When my fan stops all power is off on the controller. I discovered that by having it happen at night with the dash lights on. When the stops the light on the control goes out also. Again indicating that a fuse is be blown and then reset.

Thanks again for the input. The fuse appears to be fine. Reaching through a vent hole, the motor can be tapped on and it will start again.
