    Can you not tell from the angle of the blades whether it is moving the air in the right direction?

    Thanks think it's weird wrongly haven't done much with the inside of the van for doing the oily bits.
    But every thing OK on that front now we have always Ben warm in the van even in the depths of winter.
    But I have always thought That the heating output wasn't right.
    I was sorting out the hot air ducting as it was a bit of a mess had taken off the fan to de fluff it and notest the fan turning to the Left.
    Tryed to swap polarities and it just tripled every thing.
    So put it back as it was the wiring is a mess going to have to make sume changes.
    We're going full time so I would like it to be right.
    Thee was three major things with the hab
    1 the boiler.
    2 heating ducting
    3 getting fridge working on gas
    All the working gas bits we're checked yesterday and passed with flying culors
    Apart from the boiler has a blown bord.
    So it's a new one I think
    Never had one so never mised it was thinking abut a coild heat exchanger from engine

    If it's blown air, the question must be "does it blow or suck".

    If it blowing it must be going the right way Bill so just check the ducts for leaks or crushing.

    Put a piece of tissue by the fan Bill to see if it's sucking or blowing, you say when you reversed the polarity everything tripled?, do you mean the fan speed, if so you may have a faulty rheostat and by reversing the polarity you have bypassed it, worth a thought.

    It's a bit older than mine.. but similar... here is my guess...

    Aus is off .. (you knew that)

    Sommer is hot water only

    Winter is Hot water and Blown Air heating

    Red light is ' failed to ignite ' .. no gas or ignition not working

    Green Light is heater On

    Had a birds nest in mine Bill......almost inside the heat exchanger.
    Full heater removal and stripdown to get the bugger out.
    Problem is Americans use a very open air inlet vent and small birds, possibly a wren or bluetit, can get in with ease.
