By "power to fan" do you mean that the fan part of it works ok and actually blows air through the vents? or do you mean that the supply is ok to the fan but it doesn't turn. If it is the latter then it sounds like your fan is u/s.

If the fan is ok but blowing cold air then have you tried running the fire on gas and then using the blown air. If that works ok but it doesn't work when trying to use the 240v heating then either your 240v is missing (fuse, mcb rcd etc) or else the element may have gone.

The fanmaster fan works on 12v whereas the heating side is 240v so you've got two different supplies to consider.

We have one of these and ours went wrong, the fan worked and the heater worked on gas but not on 240v. It turned out to be the main electronic board inside the fire. Hope this helps.

Hi Dave, it sounds like your fault is different to Chris's. His fan was working ok but just wouldn't heat on 240v. Your fan isn't working at all so I wouldn't think it terms of the control board....yet!

When you say you have power to the fan, have you actually checked the input to the fan with a meter. If you've got 12v going into the fan but it's not turning then I would be pretty confident in saying the fan was u/s. If there is no 12v going in then you have a supply or control fault.

This link will take you to a site that specialises in Carver repairs, they also have online manuals so may be able to help http://www.arcsystems.biz/

Good luck,

Phil

Hi Dave

What exactly do you mean by that...do you mean that the Fanmaster wall controller does not show any lights when you select "on"? If so it may be that you do not actually have a 12v supply to the fanmaster..... maybe a fuse somewhere or a bad connection.

Just out of interest; I have also had a Fanmaster PC control board failure that stopped the heater elements from coming on but the 12v fan still worked ok so we managed with gas for a while. That was three years ago ..the board was about £35 and I fitted it myself. Apparently the early ones were prone to fail and the new PC board is modified not to fail ( it does need a bit of know how to fit one :wink: )

Hi

No sorry no idea where to look but there must be a box with the 240 supply and the 12v fuses and controls some where.
