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?

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!
