fan in the front of my house in the attic


HI,
I am new to home improvment stuff so bear with me.I have a fan in the front of my house right below the roof line. I went in the attic to make sure it was an acual fan and it was. What is the reason for having that and is it suppose to be running?

thanx
david

I don't know why I missed this a couple of days ago, so sorry about the delay.

It is probably a gable ventilator fan.

It probably has a thermostat which will turn the unit on when it reaches the temperature setting that was done before you were aware of it.

If it does not run at all, then it is probably a burned out motor or a short in the wiring, or there is a switch which needs to be turned on to supply the juice to it.

Pictures would be helpful if this does not directly answer you question.
