Caframo Ecofans are known for giving years of worry-free performance, and that's one of the reasons they are so popular. Like anything with moving parts, however, they will eventually require maintenance. Fortunately, we have all of the replacement motors with easy to follow "how-to" videos on each page so you can get your Ecofan running like the day you took it out of the box.
The blade fell off of our Caframo Ecofan. How do we reattach the blade?
You should be able to insert the fan blade assembly back into the hole and then use an Allen wrench to tighten it back on. The hole for the Allen wrench is located on the side of the hub on the front of the fan blade assembly.
The manufacturer offers a 1 year warranty against defects in workmanship. If the fan should fail in that time frame, we can file a claim with the manufacturer for replacement parts or a replacement fan.
I have an Ecofan Airplus, 3-blade, with gold blades that will not work. I can't locate a model number, maybe 802? I tested it with a small battery to the terminals and blades started to turn extremely slow, for an instant.
If the motor will function a little, do I need to replace it? If so, which is comparable or will move a little more air as we want it to move more.
A weak motor can indeed turn the fan blades for a few moments before becoming too hot to continue functioning. The highest CFM output fan we offer is the Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 Heat Powered Wood Stove Fan. This fan was recently updated from 150 CFM to 175 CFM air movement capacity and operates at a very broad temperature range. The fan also offers superior air movement at lower temperatures, when compared to previous models.
