Apparently my fan motor must be dead. Fan will not budge. After numerous attempts, and power off, power on, it started to smoke.

Now that you let the smoke out it's time for a replacement. If you are near a motor shop and time permits you could get it rewound at a $$$ savings over a new motor.

New fan motor wouldn't cost much if you install yourself.

I think a new one is around $110-120. I uust need to go back up and double check the numbers. I'm assuming that splicing will be required? I didnt see any 'plugs' at either end of the wires.

Vise grips on shaft and start working it back and forth, it will eventually break loose.

There was a problem with some Dometic AC's a while back. You can get to the inside blower wheel from inside. Just drop the ceiling Assy. It's very easy to do . then, take out the screws holding the sheet metal plate you see above you that will expose the interior blower wheel. With the air turned off, spin the blower by hand, then try to turn on the ac. that should do it.

AC - no fan

I have a 25.5 2008 Lexington B+. We have not needed the ac in a while and when we tried to use it the fan did not work. After reviewing the comments on this forum, I checked the fan by taking the cover off on the roof. There were several dirt dauber nests that were keeping the fan from turning. After cleaning them out and rotating the fan, ac was back to work. This forum saved me a potentially expensive repair bill.
