We attempted to send in a warranty card. The card was returned by the postal service stamped with a message that the prepaid code was not active.

This site has manuals - I checked 2 models and there are manuals.

Hmm, interesting that they provide a manual for PC Board replacement, but not an operating manual.

There is an installation/operation manual available for the deluxe model in the file section in the forum here.

Maxx fan question - lock position

can't seem to get the fan in the lock position, have tried pushing on the knob but it does not slip into lock position (don't want to break it). the vent is closed. any suggestions?

also, it seems the fan just does not move a lot of air,even with the vent open fully. we close all but one window but that does not seem to help.

the lock is not that critical, as long as it is closed I doubt it will open. The speed and air movement is important, do you have it on max speed and is it in or exhaust?

its on exhaust, max speed. just seems to be less effective than the fantastic fan we had previously.

K,
The MaxxFan in the Escape has 2 controls: a continuous Thermostat control and a distinct 1..2..3.. control knob. The one in the Scamp did not. So you can control speed via that thermostat in addition to the 1..2..3.. knob. It took us a bit to sort that out after having used the Scamp fan.

I find it operates better off the thermostat, that setting regulates the speed, in manual you will have 10 speeds, try all 10 and compare.
