Question about KitchenAid KWVU205YBA Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Light and blower speeds malfunctioning

The vent hood has two problems. First, the mid-range blower speed and indicator light quit working. If the high speed setting is turned on, the mid-range speed indicator light works.
Second, the hood light works intermittently. Sometimes the light will not work at all. Other times, the light will come on when the hood is slid out, but the on/off button does not operate the light at all.
My neighbor, who worked in the electronics field for years, tested the touch panel and was not able to find any problems with it. He was testing the continuity of the push buttons and the connector where the wiring harness connects to it. No problems were found. He believes the problem is in the microcomputer board.

Hood has a remote blower (VTR1400Q). Only working on MED and HIGH setting.


See if it has a blower motor resistor(controls speeds) and replace it.
Look up model at repairclinic.com & see it the resistor is a listed part. See link, go to repair help by model number. Forget it. I just checked the only part they sell is the motor for $267. You can buy a new hood for that.

I installed a new Broan QML30SS range hood and fan makes loud humming sound as it runs


An old elecricians joke says "do you know why it hums? It dosn't know the words" Al kidding aside ,have you checked to see how free the fan blade is? The should spin very freely. It kind of sounds to me like it may be having a hard time comming up to full speed. You may try some graphite lube on the motor. If I recall Broan has a lifetime garrentee on the motor. You might just want to repace it if I am correct.

I have a Best K41-1 and my variable speed on the blower does not work. It only works on high speed when slid into that position. What could be the problem?


I have the same problem (again) but with the lights not working also so something else is going on. The usual fix for the fan on high issue is to replace the switch assembly (SB06105117). It's an $80 part. This worked for me the first time it happened. If you are handy then it's a 1/2 hour project - turn the power off at the breaker.

BABT83.2AL Canopy Rangehood The fan/suction is not working. A slight straining noise is heard. The light is working as is the display panel.


These units have a history of fan failure due to inferior 220 volt Italian fan.

I have just had fan fail and retrofitted a ebmpapst blower fan model D2E146HT6702 which is readily available in Aus for around $120.

The fan speed control is by inverter variable output so you don't use all the speed select wires that this fan has. Connect the Red wire on the range hood to the Black on the motor (High speed winding) and the Black on the range hood to the Blue on the motor (Neutral) and the earth to the earth (Green).

Disconnect and toss the cap in the white enclosure under the PC board enclosure (the new fan has the cap on board). Don't know how easy to fit in the range hood as mine is in an acoustic fan housing in the roof (makes it wisper quiet when running)
