Northern Breeze

I have a Northern Breeze fan in my camper and today I noticed the hatch was open so I went inside and noticed the knob to open it was lying on the bed. I've tried screwing it back in but it doesn't seem to work, does anyone have some experience with this fan?

Welcome to irv2 bluehaven.
The threads may have been stripped on installation, try some Lock-tight on threads or some plumbers tape on what threads you may have left.

Is it just the knob, or the knob and shaft? If its just the knob there's a couple options.

1.) If the threads on the shaft are intact and are of a machine grade, it may be possible to drill out the original handle and glue a properly sized nut inside the handle and secure it in place with a little loctite.

2.) If the threads are intact, order a new handle from the fan manufacturer.

3.) If the threads are not intact, order replacement parts from the manufacturer.

4.) Replace fan

It's the knob and the shaft, the knob is still attached.

I got a hold of Mitch at VentLine today and he sent me a couple of pdf files to show me how to take the fan apart and the manual for the fan. It ends up being a part called the operator, about $20. Mitch was obviously very helpful and new what to do. Now I just have to wait on the parts and hope I don't brake anything putting it back together.
