Question about Zephyr Typhoon AK2100 Kitchen Hood

4 Answers

Neither lights nor fans work

While attempting to change a burned out light, the unit shorted and now nothing works, neither lights or fans. I cannot see any fuse box or breakers that are burned out or tripped. Everything else in the kitchen works. I opened the hood but nothing appears amiss inside. What do you recommend?

Don't know model but they are all much the same.
there will be a pcb behind the control buttons and you will find some of the track burnt out causedd by the bulb blowing. do a soldered wire link across the burnt section of the track

David, I have exactly the same problem. My unit is a Zephyr Napoli zna-m90s. I tried to find where the fuse is but no success. I saw three light colored plastic containers next to blower. One for electric connection, one for control circuit and the third one with a big metal cylinder which i am not sure what it is used for. But no fuse. I checked that power is coming to control circuit. Did I miss anything?

Had the same problem with a Zephyr Napoli. My fix: there was a blown miniature glass fuse on the control board inside the control box next to the fans. You need to do some disassembly to get to it but it's easy enough to replace. The bigger problem: The blown fuse is the result of a short circuit in the leads going to the G4 bulbs. They burn hot and destroy the insulation on the leads going to the ceramic socket. A penny saved by using cheap cabling. You will need to insert some heat resistant insulation between the leads and the metal bulb brackets or else it will repeat - or cause a fire inside the unit.

Lights and fan do not work yet power is still going to the back of the unit of the Zephyr Typhoon Hood AK 2100. Light burnt out, the unit shorted and now nothing works, neither lights or fans. I cannot see any fuse box or breakers that are burned out or tripped. Everything else in the kitchen works. I opened the hood but nothing appears amiss inside. But the buttons do not even light up...What do you recommend?

Westinghouse range hood wrf900cs light blew, light globes replaced but lights still not working

I had the same problem. An audible pop and the lights stopped. Fans still works, light bulb filaments appear intact.
My problem was that a short piece of the copper on the printed circuit board, inside the switch housing, had vaporized as if it were a fuse. I soldered a bridge of copper wire across the small 5mm gap and all was working again.
Access the switch compartment by removing the filters, undo a couple of retaining screws to remove switch unit.
Make sure the electricity to the unit is Off/unplugged before proceeding!!!
Switch unit cover has 4 screws holding it on. Once inside the unit, trace the wire (mine was grey colour) from the light switch to the small printed circuit board. The copper printed circuit link to the connector had sign of burning, just gooone!
Solder a bridge of copper wire across the gap and reassemble switch unit to test.
....send beer donations to me in qld...cheers!!!

We heard a loud pop & now the lights won't work. Tried new bulbs & nothing. Can we order/buy a new light assembly?

Best to look for a wire that shorted out ( made the popping noise) and repair it.
Turn the power off and disessable the fixture carefully looking for a wire that the insulation ha worn through or that has broken or come free. You'll also probably find a nice burn mark.
Check the breaker that the light is on also ... it may be tripped

Burning smell when lights are on

If the smell is gone 24 hours after the lights were turned off, turn on the fan & leave the lights off. Check for the burning order again. If you can smell it replace the fan. It will be the armature shorting out in the fans motor

Lite bulb & fan stopped working but oven works fine.

had the same problem (self induced) and shorted out the oven.  took the control board out and found i had burned the circuit between the connector and high/low light microswitch.  just jumped the circuit with a piece of solder, reinstalled the board and the fan and light started working. it doesn't have a low light setting anymore but who cares, just saved 130 bucks.  not going to tell my wife how i broke it, only how i fixed it. very proud of myself and learned a little bit, mainly unplug the unit before working on it.

Fan and light stop working

Has the breaker been checked? and reset?
I would check that voltage is getting to the unit with a volt meter.
To be done only by qualified persons.

No fan power and no lights would indicate no power is getting to the unit. I would check and possibly replace the wall switch. They wear out sometimes and fail to work properly.

If you do not know how to work with AC voltage then DO NOT ATTEMPT call someone that can.

I'm going to make my first bet on the switch. Usually, this is a plunger unit on the doorframe along the line with the hinges. It is either stuck or burned out. Usually, you can dig the switch out with a small screwdriver. If the switch has only two wires going to it, you can test by shorting out the two wires to each other. This can be done with a paper clip and then taping it up. Since there is power running through these lines, it is suggested that you unplug your unit before attempting any of this. Your fridge should be unplugged for at least 5 minutes before re-connecting. If more than two wires are involved, you can still connect them all together. Sometimes, the fan is shut by a switch when the door is opened. That would be the connection for another wire. If this is the case, carefully note which wires go where before you begin.

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
