power vent fan control

PostBy: StokerBub On: Thu Jan 05, 2017 11:40 am

I have a Pioneer LE/T with a power vent with fan speed control. I have it set for the perfect draft and at various times it will go wild and run at max. I can adjust it back to the normal speed but it will run off again and again. Any Ideas?

:idea: May be caused by pressure changes in the house envelope, cracking a window may alleviate some of this effect. :idea:

Does it have a locking nut? Is it slipping?

Get voltage readings of before and after you re-adjust the speed and report them back here.
