The lifting device knob on the new model fans do not disengage by pulling them down. If you want to manually open or close the fan you turn the knob and you can feel the resistance of the gears and motor as you move the lid. Call Fantastic. There service folks are great and will walk you through what has to be done and will send you the replacement parts and you can fix it without going to a dealer.

I called the 1-800 number for Fantastic Fan, told them my problem (motor just whirrs away without lifting lid) and they said immediately that they've had this before, the motor is shot, and they would send me a replacement right away. They said it's simple to replace - 2 screws, two wire connectors. I'm supposed to receive it next week. Friendly and speedy service.

I now have to confirm with my dealer that my doing the install (instead of a RV repair place) won't mess with my AS warranty on the fan going forward.

Will keep you posted.
