    When did it last work? If you lift out the false floor in the wardrobe, and try to turn on the blower, is there any sound? Like the ticking of a relay? If so, the motor could be either dead, or jammed with dust. If there is nothing, it suggest no power reaching the unit, can you put a multi meter on the terminals?

    Also, I meant to say, have you tried the blower in both positions (auto and static) and have you twisted the thermostat to see if that helps?

    Sorry this is turning into a famous Daniel stream of conciousness! :D
    Working with computers, the two most common support calls I get can be classified into the following errors:
    NPI and NSO, which stand for "Not Plugged In" and "Not Switched On", so I do have to ask this blindingly obvious question, is the habitation power switched on?
    Sorry, but have to cover the obvious :D

    Had same problem last week. Found a fix on google. Switch off power for 15 minutes. This is instead of reset button. Was ok after doing this.

    Hi Daniel thanks for the reply, The last time it worked was last night. Looks like I will have to get the false floor out the wardrobe and investigate in there. been living in the motorhome for 5yrs now, so its had a lot of running time, I did notice it started to make a bit of a winding noise lately, So got a funny feeling the motor might have packed in. I will have to get a auto electrician to check if there is power getting to it. Thanks for your reply.
    Regards George
