got a call last summer for an attic fan that seemed to be making excessive noise.... Funny, it seemed to start after the satellite installers were there!!

Can we say DUH? I hope the homeowner sends your repair bill to the installer!!

And is it the lighting or is that motor burned out?
Stupid should be painful.

LOL Randy!.
I bet that fan hasn't been having much fun with them Coax's in the way.
And is it the lighting or is that motor burned out?

It would surprise me if it wasn't!.

Maybe the fan blades were knocking the coax cables out of the way as they hit it?

That is SERIOUSLY a DUHH moment!!

Randy, I hope you gave a copy of that picture to the homeowner!

Another way of saying that need to add some disinfectant to the gene pool.
