What to do when there is no electricity on the wiring for the range hood

I am trying to install a Broan Allure III, which I need to connect the house wiring to range hood. After I have done so, when I tried to turn on the fan, nothing happened. I used the voltage testing on the black and white of the house wiring and did not detect any electricity. What should I do now?

Thanks in advance....

Check the breaker first, is it tripped? Most likely have wires crossed.

If breaker is on and not tripped and there is still no power check to make sure any splices you made are tight and copper is contacting the inside of the wire nut.(i.e. did you strip enough insulation back?).

The next thing i would do if were trouble shooting would be to check the wiring from you hood fan to the panelboard. Are there any junction boxes that were disturbed and maybe a joint came loose? Did you accidently cut or nick a cable in the wall?

Let me know if any of these fix it and write back.

NOTE: BE VERY CAREFUL when tracing cables and checking joints sometimes wire nuts can pop off just by touching them, exposing live voltage. Cables can have nicks that are unseen so don't run your hand along supicious cables.

Broan Allure range hood fan will not turn off, no matter which button is pushed.


The fan switch contacts are probably welded together or the actuator mechanism is broken. Your best bet is to replace the fan switch, probably with a similar type having a higher current rating so the new one won't also be susceptible to contact welding. If you have an industrial electrical supply dealer or electronic surplus parts store in your area, those would be good places to look for a replacement.

Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.

Electrical hookup


If you have the hot and common wires connected (black to black and white to white) it should work. If not, try connecting a length of wire to the ground wire and connect to ground, such as a copper cold water pipe, radiator, heater vent, or the ground terminal in a nearby outlet. If it works then, you need to splice an extension to the ground wire to connect in the box where the hot and common are. Keep in mind all splices must be inside an approved box. If it still doesn't work, yours is not the first nor the last defective hood to be sold.

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.

Broan Allure QS3


Hello,

The Problem is the wiring. Take the 2 screws retaining the metal plaque off underneath the filters. You will see the wires leaving the motor going into a "molex" plastic connector which connects two another set of wires going to the control board. Check to see if the wiring colors match from side to side of plastic connector. Ive only seen it happen once but it was exactly that. I do service calls for broan & Nutone
