I recently installed a pellet stove in the basement and wanted to take advantage of the over abunant heat in the basement by cutting holes in the floor so that heat could flow up into the first floor. To facilitate heat movement, I have attached blower fans to move basement air upwards. I've wired the fans in parallel into an exisiting outlet with a simple single throw switch.
The far fan works, but the near fan (although working prior to install) stops working (burns out? - resistance goes infinite). What's the deal and how do I make a work around?
A home owner with the maintenance bills to prove it.
