Can Powered Fan-Tastic Vent be Opened and Closed Manually


Hello, I have the fantastic fan which is only a couple years old, it is the 6600R and I am converting it to manual operation as Ive lost the square style brick remote. I want to remove the automatic life motor and just convert it to manual operation as the automatic assembly sticks down to far from the unit and is an annoyance. Is this the handle I need to just replace the existing lift motor/handle assembly directly to my crank arm so I can just open and close the lid manually? Thanks...

While there are no replacement parts available for the Fan-Tastic Vent 6600R - the Replacement Lift Arm # FVK1140-09 you referenced is for model 5000RBT Fan-Tastic vents - it should have a manual lift knob on it already; if you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see the knob and yours should have a similar handle which you should be able to use.

If for some reason you are unable to use that knob you would need to replace the unit with something such as the Fan-Tastic Vent Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan - Clamp On - Manual Lift # FV801208.
