2000 450 Voyager Head vent fans

Postby dkslange » March 15th, 2016, 11:22 am

I have recently purchased a 2000 450 Voyager with neither the guest head ventilation fan, nor the master head ventilation fan working. I have done some cursory searching for the fans locations, but have come up empty. Does anyone know how to get to these fans for repair or replacement?

Hi there , I have a 2000 456 My
Firstly , it's very unusual that both fans would fail at the same time or at all considering how infrequently they need to be used.
I'm assuming you've checked your circuit breaker panels.
In both of my head compartments the fans are operated by typical wall switches.
Both fans are attached directly behind the wall grill , which is approx. 4" square. The grills are plastic and off white in colour.
The fan in the Aft Head on my boat is accessed through a removable panel held on by 4 screws. Access is limited but it's there.
The fan in my Fwd Head is located above the bath tub but access is from behind the Salon Couch Back. In my case , I hope I don't have to get at that one. It's a tight squeeze.
I did look up the make model and serial number and easily found the exact fan online.
It appears that these fan motors have lubrication ports . You might have to remove the mayor to drop some oil into those ports.
I would definetely check your circuit breakers first .
I couldn't imagine Carver making these fans optional .
Good luck
Victor

Additionally I forgot mention that both Heads are on the Starboard side of my boat , could be different on your Voyageur.

Thank you Victor, I have checked the breakers, the boat spent it's first 15 years in Florida with only 390 hours put on the engines. I have a feeling the environment coupled with the lack of use is what caused the malfunction. The heads in this boat are one each side, I will give what you suggested a try and see what I can come up with.

Hi Darryl
I think you are correct , I hadn't thought of the salt and possible corrosion. Perhaps the armatures are stuck and a little lube and persuasion will get them going.
This morning while leaving my boat , I looked at the Stainless grills on the Hull side , this is another good clue to where your fans are located.
I also brought my boat from the Coast and although minor, I do expect some corrosion issues. I did replace all of my Ball valves as a precaution .
I'm located in downtown Toronto Canada. Where do you have your boat?
I decided to get the 456 because I live aboard year round but I looked at and love the Voyageur as well .
Good luck
Victor

Hi Victor,
We're slipped in Prescott, WI, near Minneapolis, MN. I wish we were live aboard, but that will come with time, that's the retirement plan. We bought this particular boat for that and to do the loop on.
Regards,
Darryl
