Maxxfan 4301 Opening Mechanism Stripped

We are in the middle of a six week trip. Use the Maxxfan over the bed for ventilation almost everyday.

It is manual. For a few days could push it open and it would lock open.

Now it will not stay open at all. If push up it just falls down.

Any ideas?

Is there a drop in replacement?

Mine did the same. I went to replace it and had snapped. Just cheap pot metal.

Search this part number. It's the same across the board: 10-20281K

Good luck. I think there's somebody out there buying these up or they're just that cheap that they keep breaking.

I got mine here. Note the difference in price. Up from when I bought mine just a few months ago. Unfortunately no longer available on their site either.

Smile Thanks and follow up question

Thanks for the quick replies. Very helpful.

Following up, to replace the part on the fan. Can you access from the inside? Just unscrew the inside portion, drop the fan and replace? Or access from the outside.

Regards and thanks,
