    Hi - my first time on this forum.
    Has anyone come across the problem where the 24v DC sump fan on an Oakhurst Optimyst Electric Stove isn't turning but the lights and transducer are powered and working. I've tested the fan with a 9v battery and it turns fine. So it feels to me like the DC power source must have failed?
    Not sure how likely or common this is or whether it's possible to effect a home repair? Grateful for views.

    Hi
    Just had similar. Transducer creating mist, fan not turning. It seems there must be an amount of ' captive mist ' in the closed tank, before the fan kicks in. Also, our fan ended up being u/ s. Got a replacement alike off the bay. Look for 24 volt, 50 X 50 mm blower. They're used in 3D printers cost £3 delivered!!. Just swap the plug, solder & sleeve, make sure colours/match.
    Sourced replacement transducers, complete, plug& play, £19 delivered, same place btw!
