Did you have the fan running already? or had you just turned it on?

The fan may be drawing to heavy for the switch control to handle if it is not on a relay.

I think your controls are different than that on the Clipper, but this may help.

If you could smell smoke in the cabin, chances are it is not the resistor which controls the lower speeds and is located on the front outside firewall on my Clipper.
Probably either the wiring at the switch or motor.

Its always nice when you find the problem and can get at it.

I updated my same fuse holder to one with a cover, to protect it a bit from the weather.



That fuse holder you have is available on line, and is expandable, but with no cover, I recommend just changing it to a protected style.

The other thing that you need to explore, is why it is drawing that much power? Have you changed the blower fan, as if it is at end of life, it may be drawing too much juice.

The other option, is to install another relay.

Interesting discussion. My fourth position just doesn't work. The first three all function properly. I hadn't worried about it until reading this post. Now I'm wondering about the problem.

I might clarify that this fuse holder, on the Clipper, is somewhat exposed to the elements as it is mounted on the front outside bulkhead. This is why I recommend a cover for protection.
Later models I believe, have it mounted in the front ds compartment? and it should be weather protected there.
