3 Exhaust Fans Not Working

Strange. None of my 3 exhaust fans are working via the wall switch pads. All have power, and will work manually, but I cannot get them to operate using the wall pads. I have pulled the fuse for the wall pad (which occasionally resolves other issues) but can't seem to get this one sorted. Any ideas? No rain nor moisture here; the lights on the wall pad will not light up when pressed.

I had a similar with my '05 Mt. Aire some years ago Fantastic vent said remove the wall apnals and see if there is condensation. There was, they sent me new panels and I replaced them and included some insulation around them. No problem in 10 years. Fantastic vent said they told newmar to provide insulation.

Thanks Al. Do you have the Silverleaf panels or the regular fan control panels? Mine are Silverleaf. I assume the Silverleaf panels can be gently coaxed out with a screwdriver? I don't see any other way to remove them.

Let me suggest that you contact SilverLeaf Electronics at (888) 741-0259 and speak with one of their technical staff before messing with the touch panels. I have called them and found their technical people to be top-notch and willing to help. They may have encountered this problem before and have some thoughts or suggestions. It doesn't cost anything and may save you some grief.

We have 17 MA ,and had problem with the pads but for different shade controls
I've just turned off the 12v switch by the door (the storage button) and then turned if back on....seems to reset the pad....C

Another trick I found out is you can disengage by holding switch/button down for 2-3 seconds and that will reset Fantastic Fan

Thanks Chuckster. That is what was suggested by Newmar and it worked perfectly. Everything operates as intended. I guess the can glitch up from time to time but the reset worked swimmingly.
