More summer fun with electrical :)
We have 4 Bora 3-speed, 12V fans in our boat and one just up and broke. It stopped working altogether. They, of course, are out of warranty. The manufacturer (Caframo) said they would sell us one at a discount. Two others broke at the switch. So neither turns on!
We purchased three of these at Home Depot for the fans (Standard Cord switches by Leviton). They are just thumb switches. We thought we were very fortunate to even find these here in Mexico.
Now the head Bora fan turns on by the thumb switch and you can use the Bora switch (in the center of fan, gray) that used to turn it on and switch speeds to now switch speeds. It does not turn it on. So we got it to work with the thumb switch.
The Bora fan in the salon quit working also. Debbie put a switch on it and it now works at high speed only. At least it works now and if we could choose a speed it would probably be high speed!
