Exhaust fan over stove not working

Hmmm, seems the little exhaust fan that lives over the stove isn't working. How hard is it to swap out the motor? I could return it to the dealer but it's a long ways away for such a small item.

Shouldn't be a big deal to replace the fan motor yourself. I'd call the dealer and send them the bad one and have them send you the replacement if it's under warranty. If not, pickup a replacement on the internet.
I assume you've made sure you have 12v to the fan by checking fuse, using meter at fan, etc.

Jenny. Quite a few times if you contact the warranty manager at FR, Travis Bird, you'll get faster results rather than dealing with the dealers. I had a problem, while under warranty, with one of my light fixtures and he had the mfg. send me a new one. Just had me trash the bad fixture.

I had the same issue. It turned out to be a fuse that was actually at the fan wiring not in the fuse panel. My dealer fixed it under warranty.

Stove vent fan

Wayne & Sherry, I replaced the noisy vent fan in my RV over the stove with a "SAM-1" by www.fabulousoperatingproducts.com .

They were at last years rally, I purchased and installed it after returning
home. It is super quite, variable speed, led night light & daytime cooking
light.

What a improvement!
