The genset in my 1990 Newell is overheating due to the cooling fan shutting down after a minute or so of operation regardless of the temp showing on the gauge. I was of the understanding that the fan was controlled by a thermo switch set for 170 degrees. I would like to know location of the switch in order to check if it is operating correctly. Any information would be very much apprecitated. Thank you.

Did you ever find that replacing the motor fixed the problem?
