Fantastic Fans Not Working

All (3) of my fan vent covers open when I press the auto switch but the fans donít come on. Initially when I switched it to manual the fans came on at the lowest speed only. Eventually that also stopped working. Any ideas? This just came out of nowhere. Thanks

Sorry, not quite understanding you. Are you saying all 3 fans operate through one switch? Do you operate them through a handheld remote? If so perhaps the battery in the remote is low.

I have had the Fantastic fan with thermostat, control and had to change the temp settings when in auto for them to work. Is this what your describing?

Yup .... my older ones had thermostats, on/off switch, and fan speed. And ... a "lid up" switch.

I believe there is a pop-up switch that turns the fan ON when the lid is open.
I had to bump the fan/ceiling to make the switch work. You would have to get up on the roof and the cover OPEN to lube the switch.

We have 3 Fantastic fans. Occasionally one or the other will stop working but the there is power to the controling switch. When that happens we open up the switch and unplug it and plug it in. For some reason that resets the controls inside the switch. Hope this helps...

Sorry for the delay in answering. No. Each fan has its own switch. One each bathroom and one over kitchen.

I think so. They’re not working in auto on any temperature setting but when I switch it to manual at lowest setting it works. All 3 acting the same

All fans have water switch that when wet stops the fans from working. On our 18 London Aire I cut the wire to control fan when a little water gets in the cover and put covers to allow us to run the fans even if raining. Sometimes fog can cause these fans to stop working.
