I have been repairing my Lionel product # 6-38095. On the fan driven smoke unit the resistor was bad and the AC regulator board was shot. I have replaced these components. My problem that still exists is that the fan will turn on for only about 2 seconds and then will shut off. If I use my remote to turn smoke off and then back on the fan again will run for about 2 seconds and shut off again, the resistor for the smoke unit stays on the whole time I have the smoke unit activated. The fan itself works when bench testing and I am struggling to find what my next step is. Could it maybe be the separate capacitor in this circuit? Any suggestions would be awesome.

What resistor is in the smoke unit? If its a 6 ohm resistor you should replace it with an 8 ohm resistor as the 6 ohm resistors have a reputation for eating AC regulators. Another possible culprit is the wires going to the fan motor may need to be re-tacked with fresh solder or replaced. A similar thread for these problems popped up a while back and here's the link for it, hope this helps.
