Extractor fans work like vacuum cleaners – filtering out the hot and humid air from your house. This means dust and dirt easily collect on the blades. To keep your fan in good working order, you’ll need to clean it regularly.
But sometimes, these fans will stop working, even after a good clean. This could be due to faulty wiring or a broken motor. And since both these issues involve electricity, it’s best to get a qualified electrician on the case.
Your electrician will safely turn off the fuse or circuit breaker before removing the cover plate to check for loose wiring and screws. If they can’t see an issue, they’ll test the motor and switch and repair or replace these if necessary.
If your extractor fan isn’t working and you suspect faulty wiring or a broken motor, a Part P qualified electrician is the best person for the job. They are certified to do work in and around your home, get assessed regularly and follow rigorous health and safety regulations. We have hundreds of these professionals on our platform. So simply tell us where you are and we’ll match you with a Local Hero.
