Bathroom fan...

Hi all,

When all else fails, go to the forum members for help!

I have 2910 rockwood 8316ss with a create-a-breeze bathroom fan. We returned home from our last trip to find the fan was no longer working. I replaced the fuse in the fan and checked the breaker box and still no luck. Does anyone else have any other suggestions before I take it back in for service?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kelly

Make sure the speed selector hasn't been moved to a position between numbers.
This is a long shot but I have seen this happen before.

Our TT has a wall switch for the light. The same switch will turn off the power to the fan. Could this be the problem with your unit?

I have checked all the knobs and switches and know that's not the problem. I think it is either a loose wire or the motor has burned out. I can't think what else it might be.

Long shot but check that the vent switch is not stuck in the depressed (off) position.

Looks like you need to a fan. If it's under warranty should be easy.

By the way:
- Fan-tastic fan: high speed fan in bathroom
- Create-a-breeze fan: light/fan combo that hangs in the bunk/sleep area

Good luck

Another long shot - make sure that one or both of the GFI's have not been tripped.

So are you telling me that they have installed the wrong fan in the bathroom?? Not sure how to interpret what you have said. The create-a-breeze fan in my bathroom is not a combo fan just a straight 3 speed fan.

Create-A-Breeze IS a vent fan manufactured by Fan-Tastic Vent Corp.

So here is the update....we took the trailer out this past weekend and the fan started to work again. Loose wire? Most likely. The tt was scheduled to go in for warranty work, added that to the list. Thanks for all the replies!

Cheers!
