Overhead drivers windshield fan?

My fan stopped working. I found that the blade in the chrome fan cage had gotten stuck. I cleared the stick and it spins freely. Now it wont turn on. The passenger one works fine. I figured there must be a fuse somewhere for the fan.

My RV is a 2004 Mandalay 40D. the only DC fuses I know for the inside is located under the dashboard behind the instrument panel and under the foot of the bed in the back bed room. I cant find on the chart anything about the fuse for the fan.

Does anyone have any information?

Thanks in advance.

Could there be a reset on the motor?

I don't think they're fused. They're made to plug directly into a power socket or hardwired to a 12v source.

Did the motor get hot/very warm? If it did, have you left it off long enough to cool. Most small motors are internally protected (impedance protected). Since the other fan is running I doubt a fuse is the problem. I have a fan I need to replace on the passenger side, bearing getting dry. When the fans are first turned on we have to spin the fan with something that will fit through the guard.

Remove the fan and wire it stright to your starting battery to see if it will run. If not, you are half way through replacing it. These are shaded pole motors with small windings which fail when a motor is prevented from running with power applied. Good thing though, they are also cheap to purchase.
