Fantastic Fan Motor Keeps Activating, even when already closed


I have a fantastic fan in my 2015 Classic 30 that keeps activating the close function when it is already closed. This has mainly been happening at night time, located currently in humid Houston, TX. My theory is the dew (or humidity) maybe activating the rain sensor? But I don't understand why the motor keeps activating when it is already closed.

The gear sometimes out of place and the motor just keeps whirling and making noise until I walk over and push the knob up and the motor stops. Very annoying to keep waking up like this.

Is the best fix to disconnect the rain sensor? I am loathe to disconnect it because it has worked in the past to prevent rain from entering the fan a few times. No way to get it to work correctly and stop activating when it is already closed?

Sounds like your ‘closed lid’ switch is wonky.
