Light fan need electrician


Recommended Posts


Ok so this is the plug to my fan on my light I can not find my power supply for it. I have alot of random plugs that plug in the wall and have the same connection.

I was wondering if I splice the two wires on this connection and the one that plugs in the wall will it work, all those master electricians out there i need you the light get really hot to the touch with out the fan on.

I've definitely have seen those at the LFSs, so you might check with them. You can also start another thread trying to track someone with this fixture. Are you able to remove the fan from the housing to inspect further? There's usually a label on the fan housing.

Btw, it's probably a 12V fan, but there are 120V fans out there too, so...

The fan is 12V. It's the same fan as the BC29 hood fan. - http://www.directaquarium.com/product-p/20568.htm

You just need a 12V AC adapter that can supply at least 1W.

But to answer your question, you would be fine hooking 12V DC supply to a 120V AC fan. Nothing would happen though. Do not attempt the opposite as you could start a fire and would burn out the fan at the very least.
