Hi,

We are having problems with the fan in the vent of the bathroom. It's not turning on at all. Checked breakers and fuses, all OK. The hubby tried getting up on the roof to remove the fan, but he can't see where it's hooked up-he took out all screws he could see and it still won't come out. Any ideas? Are these one piece assemblies? Help, lol

Nell

Nell,
I will take a look at mine today to see what I have. They usually are not that good of fans, and allot of times the connections are loose up there and it shorts out.

Hey, we are neighbors, (well almost- Gardiner) you should attend one of our rallys if you have not already.

I will get back to you!

Assuming you have one of those little noisy fans in the bathroom vent, it is serviced from inside the camper not from the roof. The crank handle, screen and inside bezel are removed from the inside. Once the bezel is removed the wiring should go into the ceiling and is probably connected to a nearby light fixture. It is possible that the switch is bad or there may be a thermostatic control that is set wrong. That would only be on a higher end unit like a Fantastic Vent. If it is a Fantastic Vent, they have "fantastic" customer service. Their number can be found on a Google search.

The phone # for Fantastic Fans is 800-521-0298. Their service is unbeatable! Good luck.

If it is like mine, there are spade terminals on the top of the motor.

I think my first step would be to put a volt meter across those, so you could quickly determine if the switch or wiring is the problem, or if the motor died...
