first check the coolant level, the thermo switch for the fan will not work without coolant in the ststem.

The fan normally cycles after about 5 min. running from cold (around 180f water temp i think) . If it does not come on,

disconnect thermo switch and connect wires together, start the motor and the fan should run. This is only a temp fix!

If it still does not run, you have problems! :wub:

Try to jump start the fan by flicking the blades with your finger once it's warmed up.

Or stick a 12 v battery charger direct to the fan. That way you'll bypass everything and know if it's just the fan motor that's had it. No panic if it is. Sherco ones tend to be quite expensive so I stuck a gas gas one on mine for half the price. Just had to extend the wires slightly. Good luck
