Can the Rain Sensor on a MaxxAir Vent be Overridden


Can you override the rain sensor on the Maxxair 4900K?


Expert Reply:

MaxxAir vents that have an integrated rain sensor, like the MaxxFan Plus Roof Vent # MA00-04500K, do not allow you to override the sensor. If you were to override it you would be allowing rain to hit the motor which could definitely damage it.

The sensor will close the lid and shut off the fan when it is wet, but when it dries up the vent will open up and turn the fan back on.
