Video Transcript for Review of Maxxair RV Vent and Fan Parts - Replacement Lift Motor - MA10-20270

Ellen: Hey, everybody. I'm Ellen here and we're going to be taking a quick look at the replacement lift motor for your MaxxFan Plus roof vent. So if something's happened with that roof vent, it's gotten damaged, or it's just not working anymore, but you don't want to replace the whole thing. Everything else is working just fine. This is a way to keep that fan working for many more years without having to take out that whole unit and replace it with a completely new fan unit system. So let's take a closer look and make sure it's the right fit.

Just has this little plug that goes into the connection to the rest of the fan. And we'll have our two arms to connect into those mechanisms to lift and lower that vent lid. Works with several different models of fans. The list of those is on our product page here at so you can check with that to make sure that yours is a match for it. And this will be for obviously the electric fans, not the manual.It does not come with any mounting hardware so you will need to reuse the mounting hardware from the original to get this in place.

But that's really about all there is to it for our look at the replacement lift motor for your MaxxFan Plus roof vent. Hope this video's been helpful in deciding if this is the right part for you. We do have a lot of other replacement parts available here at and we also do have new fan units as well. So if you need to go down that road, we got you covered. Thanks for watching..

Replaces the lift motor needed to open your MaxxFan Plus roof vent.


Well they are replacement parts, So there's not much to say about them except I'm Glad there was a "used" option for 1 of the items to help with the cost. My disappointment is with the MaxxAir fan that REQUIRED these parts after only just over 2 years with LOW use hours! MaxxAir really needs a better warranty for such a (supposedly) top of the line fan with a Top Price to go along with it! Or maybe offer the parts at a lower price point! I struggled with the decision of buying the parts or just getting a whole new fan! I opted for the parts ONLY because of the extra work it would have been to remove the calking & mounting bracket stuff. As it was I still had to do some pretty involved disassembly & R&R work to replace BOTH a bad lift motor AND broken ( Pot metal) Operator Mechanism!!! NOT impressed with my Maxxair roof vent AT ALL!!!!


This lift motor is just about dead and struggles to lift the cover every time we use the vent. Not sure if we got a bad one or if these motors are just junk. I guess they only last about a year and now I've got to think about purchasing another motor or just using the vent manually....


Old gearbox locked up. This gearbox boltin placeand works well.


The motor is exactly what I ordered and replaced the old one but my fan still doesn't
Work. I must have an electrical issue. I'll keep this one as a backup tho.

The package arrived ahead of schedule and I am pleased with that. We are full time RV'ers
and will come to this site as something else needs to be replaced.


I received it three days after I placed the order. Had it installed in less than 30 minutes. The tricky part is matching the small aluminum sleeve to the two splined shafts for a proper fit.


Thanks for the update and nice comments.
companies service has been great.

I bought a operator mechanism last year thru Amazon and other supplier.
It failed after 2 weeks but I didn't install it till 30days had passed and my claim was refused.
Reading reviews these units seem to be very unreliable.

I chose ETrailer re stock, price and the 60 day term hoping it might be made better.

I went on the roof to install my 1st order from you and found it looked the same.
I couldn't see a problem with the one I had. Installed yours and guess what, it wouldn't work either.
My neighbor has lots of experience with these fans.
Explained how the motor works and how high voltage (friction) is how it stops.

My knob has been very tight to move manually.
So it turns out my 2013 motor is the issue. He had a spare and loaned it to me and everything now works the way it should and the knob and gears are easy to turn.
My second order is to replace his and I will now have a spare for my second fan that will be a 2013 original.
10 years life on the 7500 Deluxe unit isn't something I'll complain about.

Thought this might be of interest to you.


The parts returned my Maxxfan to fully operational.


Great service

Has been working perfectly

@DavidN Great to hear. Thank you for the update.


Just what I needed to complete full remote operation to the Maxx Fan in my ATC toy hauler. The fan cover could be opened and closed manually, but I really wanted it returned to remote control use due to the distance was a little too high for my wife to reach. Great service and good products at reasonable prices, thank you so much!


Fast delivery direct fit no modifications needed no special tools needed


Products arrived quickly and as expected. I got them installed without any issues and the vent works as it should.


Easy to replace and fixed my problem


Was an easy installation and has not failed to operate when turned on. Seem to have been accurately represented. This would be my go to company for any future part needs.


I am very satisfied with e trailer, customer service is on point with a great attitude, would recommend them to anyone needing RV parts and will be using them in the future
Thank e trailer !


Exactly what we needed. Perfect fit.


perfect fit; quick ship


Excellent service!


Installed easily! Great job!


I think the replacement motor did the trick, now the vent cover opens and closes the way it was designed.


Worked good


Part worked perfectly


My husband and myself installed this ourselves and went exactly as planned and continues to work well one year later. Glad we couldn’t find someone to do this for us. Would have cost us so much more because they wanted to replace the whole A/C unit!


It was a quick and easy DIY project to replace the defective motor


Very fast delivery and very knowledgeable of product.They email you product is shipped and when it arrives at is destination !!!!!!!! Great services!!!!!!!!!!!


As usual service from e trailer is top notch. Have not installed new part as of yet.

  • What Causes MaxxAir Maxx Fan Lid Not to Open or Close
    The two most likely causes of a MaxxAir vent fan lid not opening or closing are either going to be a lift motor or operator failure. I recommend removing the motor and applying power directly to this to see if the shaft turns. If not, you know the motor is bad and needs to be replaced for which we have the Replacement Lift Motor for Maxx Fan Plus Roof Vent part # MA10-20270. If the motor works properly then it's most likely a bad operator for which we have the Replacement Operator Mechanism...

  • Troubleshooting MaxxFan RV Roof Vent That Clicks When Closing
    Sounds like your roof vent lid isn't closing all the way when you ask it to which is why the fan isn't shutting off and also explains the clicking of the operator as it's trying to close it. In the past we've seen similar issues to this turn out to be fixed by replacing the operator with the part # MA10-20281K-1AF which is correct operator for your MaxxAir MaxxFan.

  • Lid Wont Open on MaxxAir/MaxxFan Roof Vent Fan
    If the lid won't open then that usually means either the motor or operator mechanism is bad. That said, if the manual knob is difficult to turn then that points to a bad operator mechanism instead of a motor and in which case you'd need the Replacement Operator Mechanism for MaxxAir MaxxFan Plus or MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vents part # MA10-20281K-1AF. If you wanted to test the motor just as an extra precaution, you'd apply power directly to the motor as if it did not function you'd know it's...

  • Troubleshooting the Vent Lid and Parts Needed For the MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan
    Most likely the problem with the lid not opening is a combination of the circuit board and the operating mechanism. I think the circuit board is why it is cutting in and out and the operating mechanism is causing the clicking noise. You could be correct in needing the Replacement Lift Motor for Maxx Fan Plus Roof Vent # MA10-20270 which is the correct replacement for the MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan # MA00-07500K. But more likely it is that the operator mechanism for the lid needs...

  • Fan And Lid Does Not Operate On MaxxFan 4751KS Roof Vent
    I recommend verifying if the fan is getting 12v to the motor when the button is pushed. You can use # PT29ZR to verify if you're receiving 12 volts. If you're not receiving 12v, then you likely have a bad motor, which you can replace it with # MA10-20270. If you're receiving 12v to your motor, I suggest next checking your operator mechanism. You'll need to head to the roof, open the cover manually, and visually inspect for damage. If it's broken, you can use the Replacement Operator...

  • Troubleshooting A MaxxAir MaxxFan 7500 That's Running And Not Responding To Buttons Or Remote
    Hey Sam, Typically if an RV vent fan is having issues it's going to be caused by your power and ground or a faulty circuit board. With yours running full blast randomly and the buttons not working the power most likely isn't the issue but it wouldn't hurt to check the voltage running to the power wire with a multimeter # PT89ZR to see if you're at 12 volts or if you're getting less or more, causing an issue for the circuit board. You should also verify that you have a good ground connection....

  • Replacement Parts For a MaxxAir MaxxFan Deluxe 8951K
    We do not carry an exact replacement unit for the MaxxAir Deluxe 8951K. We have the Smoke # MA00-07500K or White # MA00-07000K which would be the closest replacement. These fans use the same lift and fan motors but the control panels and circuit boards are going to be different so you would not be able to swap all the parts. Here are the replacement parts for your fan if you want to try changing out certain components. Also be sure to first check the power going to the fan as if the voltage...

  • Troubleshooting MaxxAir MaxxFan 4951 Motor Will Not Run
    The first thing I would check on your MaxxAir MaxxFan 4951 is the power. It is possible the motor is not getting enough or any power which would explain the issue. You can check the 12V power using a multimeter like the # PT89ZR. Assuming the power checks out I would say that the motor is bad. The correct replacement motor is the Replacement Lift Motor for Maxx Fan Plus Roof Vent # MA10-20270.

  • What Would Cause Two RV Roof Vent Lid Motors to Not Be Able to Lift Lid
    What's the condition of the battery that is powering the lift motor? It sounds like it needs to be charged and that's why it's not lifting the lid with either motor. Otherwise check wiring and make sure there's nothing obstructing the lid from opening.

  • Troubleshooting MaxxFan MA00-07500K Deluxe Foof Vent Fan
    I spoke with the folks at Airexcel, who ran through a few different troubleshooting scenarios with me. As a first step, disconnect power to the fan for a few minutes, then reconnect power to reset the circuit board. If that fails to solve the problem, there are other things you can check. Can you operate the lid manually with the knob. If you cannot, it's an indication that either the mechanism is jammed or the lift motor is shorted out and needs replacing.

  • MaxxFan MA00-4500K Vent Lid Will Not Open
    As a first step, disconnect power to the fan for a few minutes, then reconnect power to reset the circuit board # MA10A21275K. If the fan fails again it could be the circuit board. Your rain sensor could incorrectly think rain is present on the rain sensor # MA34FR. Unplug rain sensor, leave unplugged and try again. If it begins working, it could be the sensor. If you cannot open the lid manually it may be a jammed or stripped operator # MA10-20281K-1AF, or the lift motor is shorted out...

  • Help Opening Vent Lid On MaxxAir Roof Vent Fan After Removing Lift Motor
    It sounds like your Operator Mechanism # MA10-20281K-1AF is not allowing you to open the vent lid after you removed the motor. As you have removed the Motor # MA10-20270 you can try to stick a screw driver up into the gear on the operator mechanism to turn it manually and raise your vent lid. This may be a 2 person job to provide slight pressure opening the vent lid while someone else turns a screw driver in the mechanism. A flat head as close to the size of the gear on the motor is going...

  • Trouble Removing the MaxxAir MaxxFan Lift Motor From Roof Vent
    I think you may have missed a screw as there are 3 screws which hold the Lift Motor # MA10-20270 in place on your MaxxAir MaxxFan. With all 3 screws removed the motor should fall out fairly easily. Be sure you are removing the mounting screws and not the screws which hold the case together as there are also 3 of those.

    In order to test the motor on a MaxxAir MaxxFan similar to the Mini Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan - Manual Lift - 4 Speed - White # MA00-04301M you'll need to supply power directly to the motor itself; if the motor works when it receives power directly from the battery then the issue would be your touch pad or control board. For reference, the # MA10-20270 is designed to replace the lift motor on MaxxFan models 00-4501K, MA00-04500K, MA00-07000K, or MA00-07500K. If you can provide the model number...
