[DML] Re: Cooling Fans Not Turning On

The fans should start right up if you jumper the 2 wires that connect
to the otterstadt switch with a paper clip. If they do then you may
have to replace the switch. Is the switch facing up or down? If it is
facing up you should change it to the later style so an air bubble
can't interfere with it's operation. If the fans do not start with the
wires connected together then you will have to troubleshoot the fan
electrical circuit. 220 is way too high. Your temperature gauge could
also be off some. Measure the temp and see if the gauge is close.
