Hoping someone might know about the DVS home ventilation systems.  I have a DVS-5 fan unit which I took out of our house.  It originally had a power box which a switch plugged into which I only can guess controlled the speed of the fan. I can plug the fan directly into a wall socket and it appears to run at full speed, i.e.  2600rpm.    I would like to install this at a property that I own however DVS say they no longer stock the parts so I am trying to figure out how I can get another switch to control the fan.  I know it is a long shot but has anyone got any ideas?

It wont be as slick as a DVS control but a standard fan speed controller should work

What functionality did the original control give you? Just fan speed?

Thanks.   Unless anyone know better as far as I could see it only controlled the fan speed.

How old is it? They have to supply parts for those things for a reasonable period of time...

7 years is pretty young, and considering the cost of them, they should be able to help you out and work out an acceptable solution for you. Consumer has a chart in one of their mags on how long appliances should work, and some they expect to last at least 15 years.
