But one of the things he noted was that the fan was still running. The loss of one live line and a 240 volt fan still running don't go together.

Stan get a pencil and draw a diagram of a 240 3 wire circuit.Open a fuse on 1 side.That side is dead until a water heater element turns on.Now the element feeds the dead side.Lights will come on dim and the fan motor will run wether its 240 or 120.I do think my Lincoln 225 welder has a 240 fan motor.I have run across the lost leg problem many times doing appliance repair.Happens a lot on underground service with aluminum wire.Ive found out side service lines open on one side.Happened in my barn shop.Fluorescent light came on very dim.Barn line has 40 amp fuses.Pull them and find one open.No problem , just an old tired fuse.

Fan will run on much less than 240V. It will spin just fine on approx 120V throught the neutral backfeed from the "dim light" side of the panel.

One of these days, b&d, I'm going to be right and you're going to be wrong. Maybe next time.
