Fantastic fan problem

I have a Fantastic fan that stopped working. The fuse looks good. What are the steps in trouble shooting?

There is a pressure switch on the top, make sure that it is not stuck down.

If you got one of the fancy ones with a thermostat...is the thermostat set correctly?

(sorry - just throwing out cheap suggestions).

Call Fantastic fan they will help you trouble shoot the problem and send the new parts to a new fan as needed. I had a problem and they were fantastic, sorry for the play on words. They really were great.

Thumbs up Found it

I called fantastic fan, they asked me to climb up and remove the automatic shut off plunger and clean it. I did, it sure enough needed it. But it wasn't the problem. I took the fan apart from the inside and it turned out that the wire to the automatic shut off had become disconnected. Glad I got that fixed, I really need that fan.....

Thanks for the help everyone.

Generally those are the things that get me into trouble. Not plugged in and so forth. But not today.

Pretty much, you may have been right even. The wire may have come off when I took the plug out.

Check your fuse in your distribution panel.
