Solved- fantastic fan not working in bathroom

2011 Sabre 32bhok fantastic fan in bathroom not working this year.
All the lights in the bathroom work.
The 4 amp fuse on the fan is good.
No fuses are bad in the electrical box.

Only thing I can think of is the switch on the roof vent that turns the fan on and off. Maybe that is bad?
How do I check that?
Any other ideas?

there also should be another fuse in convertor I cannot remember ?
either the case you need a volt ohm meter to make sure you in fact have power to switch coming in and goin out . then you need to check power at the switch on the fan as you saw .

The fan I had, I think was a create a breeze, it would not work without the switch being tripped that made sure the vent was open.

Both switches are on.

I don't have a volt meter with me. Im camping right now.

I will look again at the fuse box.

I don't see a name on my fan.

That looks exactly like my fan. There is a switch that will only allow the fan to run if the top is open. Mine got stuck in the down position, I just had to take the screen off and reach up and (make sure fan is off!) Jiggle the popup part. Ymwv.

Had the same issue with mine, it was the switch under the cover up on the roof. The switch was just stuck a little P.B.Blaster on it and it freed up and solved the problem. The switch is somewhat exposed to the elements and it's a plunger type switch and the plunger gets corrided and gunked up.

X2. On mine, the problem was the ring terminal that is on the switch. This ring terminal grounds the switch body for activation. All was accessed from the roof with the vent lid up.

Thank you guys so much. Got on the roof with the cover up and moved the switch up and down.
Now it Works.
Thanks again!
