Customer Question
My fan tech 110...

My fan tech 110 comes on when the dryer comes on but the fan tech stays on long after the dryer is off. Is there an adjustment the do switch?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

The unit was never turned on. This is the first time

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the unit's filters?

What thermostat? This is an exhaust from a dryer as the dryer has an exhaust pipe about 25 foot long

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I am a licensed master electrician

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The wiring was triple checked

The fan tech should turn off when the dryer turns off. There is not setting on these units. If they feel air coming with their sail switch sensor, the fan turns on. Once the dryer stops blowing air the switch should go back and reset cutting power to the fan tech. If it's staying on longer than that, there is a bad sensor on the fan and it thinks it's detecting the air blowing even though it's not so you need to replace the fan tech in line blower fan.
