Zephyr Milano hood fan and lights stop working. Power is on.

After the power went out this morning our Zephyr hood lights and fan don't work at all. There is a faint glow on the digital display but the fan and lights don't respond to pressing the control buttons.

    Hey Harvey,

    Thanks for the information. I now know more than I did before about this unit. Meanwhile, I called Zephyr in San Francisco and they called me back! The solution was to turn the breaker off and wait a few minutes (25-30 was recommended but it didn't take that long) and turn it back on. This worked. The technicial expert at Zephyr explained that this is a saftely feature of the device and this is how it responds to power off situations sometimes.



    Thanks for the response



    Ciao,



    ...Ron

Hi ronio,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: After the power went out your Zephyr hood lights and fan don't work at all. There is a faint glow on the digital display but the fan and lights don't respond to pressing the control buttons.

First check the circuit breaker. If OK then check the transformer in the unit. It's next to the fan motor. If no power on the high side then you have a loose or broken connection. If you have no power on the low side the you have a bad transformer. If OK then you have a bad control board.

Feel free contact me again!

Terrible noise when fan comes on...


The fan is most likely hitting or scraping into something. Disconnect the power and open up the fan panel. Push the fan blade manually and see if it's hitting into any walls. If not it may be the vibrations from the motor. In this case you should tighten any bolts that aren't completely tightened

How do I change light bulbs on a Zephyr Milano hood?


Hi elenara, try applying slight upward pressure as you turn the bulb. Remember righty tighty, lefty loosy. This worked for us, now if I could only find a replacement bulb. Good luck!

Replaced light bulbs but no light


Original bulb has a JDR designation. I ordered bulbs and received bulbs with a JDRC designation, the brand was Hikari--these bulbs were shorter than the original bulbs and will not seat properly even after removing filters and turning bulbs by the neck of the bulb (porcelain section). Since they won't seat completely in the socket there is no electrical contact and they won't work.

Can't figure out how to get bulbs out of hood to replace on Zephyr Milano-G ZMI-M90G Kitchen Hood


just use an adjustable pliers wide enough to grip the outer small edges. Grip, turn counter clock wise and remove. The other way to do this is unscrew the panel behind the filters and you should be able to reach the neck of the bulbs.

Zephyr ZMI-M90S stopped working


The company doesn't list such a part. Probably, you have a bad connection in the unit. With the power off, remove the motor housing. Find the connection box and fix up the connections.
