Maxxfan not working

Just realized the Maxxfan is not working.. I think there used to be a light on the panel, right?

As I recall the MaxxFan does not have a visual indicator light on the control panel when it has power or is operating in normal mode. The only time a light is on (green LED) is if Auto is pressed. That could still help with troubleshooting.

thanks, rubicon. I usually leave it on auto, so maybe that's why I remember seeing the green light.
However, it's just not working anymore

I assume you checked the fuses in the WFCO power center panel? An LED should light up red next to any blown fuse.

The MaxxFan does have a “self-resetting” fuse in the control panel, but to reset it you need to cycle power. With no shore power you can flip the battery isolation switch off or you can try to identify and pull the proper 12V fuse from the converter fuse panel. I would give this a try.

Hi, had the same problem just a few month's ago. The circuit card was the culprit. I contacted the company and was sent a new card within one week. Great service from the company. Very simple install, Pat

Thanks, rubicon. No led lit, I cycled power but no luck.

Thanks again Pat. They are going to send a new board. but the customer service for me is less than desired. When there's no service center 500 miles of metropolitan area (according to their web site), it's especially important for customer service to be courteous to retail customers. The phone recording kept on saying this line is for commercial folks, and the guy on the line did not have much patience and guidance for consumer like me.

Attention Admins

FYI, there seems to be an issue posting replies? it's happened with dragoon's reply on this thread and wetzk's reply in another thread.
I get emails for both, but neither posts are showing in the web thread
