Can’t comment on your exact situation (how old is your Nuevo).
What I can say is that my extractor fan is just fed by a single 12v supply, if yours is similar then it’s got to be a problem within the extractor if the lights work.

Then I would imagine you have the same extractor as me Skegguy.
I don’t know what skills you have but it’s a pretty simple job to get to the insides and investigate with a meter.

I doubt many have probed inside the actual extractor unit. 
Disclaimer...don’t go there if you are not competent!
There are 2 screws at the front corners which drop the outer cover on a hinge and reveal the innards.
From memory all the components are easily accessible for diagnosis but don’t quote me on that as it was 6 months ago!

OOH well done, I'm jealous. I usually take at least an hour to persuade wifey that we need to change our van!

Yes, it's not the fuse. If the light works the fuse must be OK. Most likely a stiff bearing in the fan motor, assuming it hasn't burnt out. If you go to a plumbers merchant you can get a special bottle of fan bearing oil, for gas boilers. The bottle comes with a tiny extendable tube for a spout so you can put just one drop exactly where you want it and not spill it all over the rest of the motor.
