All the 12v fuses are probably together - check your main control box.

I have read that if you turn the fan on third speed or change direction of air flow without letting the fan stop first the fuse may go. The Omnivent fitting instructions say the peak current on doing this is 15A. If the fan is original fitment there will be a separate fuse for it. Get a couple of spares in case it goes again!

Thanks for that,thats what exactly happened,I changed the direction rather quickly.It was an orignal fitment so the fuse could well be in the ceiling with the fan switch maybe?
