Dash Fans in Cockpit Not Working on 2007 35A Pace Arrow

Both driver and passenger dash fans above the cockpit have stopped working. While driving recently, I turned on the driver fan to HIGH and then changed to LOW. When I did, the fan stopped working. I checked the passenger fan and it stopped working too. I assumed it was a fuse but have tested out all fuses that seem related to the fans (accessories/aux, etc.) that I've found on the coach and none are blown. I checked the chassis fuse box and the box under the engine hood as well as fuses in the rear of the coach. Am I missing something? I found no fuse label anywhere that said it was for 'dash fan'. Any ideas or do I have to take to a repair shop and spend $$$? Any suggestions or recommendations on how to troubleshoot this would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

On most Pace Arrow models, the fans are on a circuit breaker. It is in the elec box under the hood. You will find it at the bottom left of the box. It is a small button about the size and shape of a popsicle stick.(but only about an eight of an inch long)

I looked for the button for the fan under the hood. Only box is the fuse box - there is no button/circuit for fan that I could locate. Any other ideas? This is a puzzle! Thanks!

Those fans on my 08 Bounder are fused in the battery control center in a fuse marked spare.

Is the battery control center the black box under the hood?

Yours may be under the hood. A quick call to FW might get you some exact answers 800-322-8216. Good luck.

I found the dash fan fuse (F12/15AMP) and it's still good. Guess it's not a fuse after all. The fans worked fine until I attempted to switch one from high to low and then both stopped working. Any other ideas? It's not a big deal and I don't feel the need to take the MH for repair of this one thing.

check the switch contacts, if good it may be a bad resistor in the fan motor housing. semms these things are made in china and vert poor quality.

I had a Fleetwood Discovery and both fans quit working. When I started tracing the problem, I found that one of the fans was completely frozen. It turned out that there was a leak above the windshield and water had leaked in and into the fan and rusted it solid. I just replaced both of the fans with chrome ones from Camping World that cost about $29.95 each. (after I repaired the leak) I would suggest that you remove the fans and check to see if there's power at the fans. If there is, and the fans still don't work, just replace them. It's cheaper than calling a repairman.
