    No brainer advice, I was expecting advice from some one who has at least a tiny knowledge of the product. from the response it is obvious he/she is very ignorant about the product. This product has two motors, they are working fine, except at the 40% of normall speed, no noise. Even at lower speed it shut itself off about 5 minutes. it seems like something is getting hot and cutting of the power. Please if you are not sure what the issue is do not replay with supid answer. Thanks

    The fan only works at less than 40% of capacity and shut itself off after 5 minutes or less, new filter installed, both fan motors operating, all buttons of the electronic boared functioning. Is there any relay or fuses that causing mulfunction, or low voltage? The unit is about 4 years old, but seldom used and was working fine just two weeks ago.

    Mohammad what do you mean by "check he contencer replace the moter" Could you type in English please.

  • mbeg49 Nov 09, 2008

    Ginko, there are two fan motors, and both works at the lower speed just fine without any noise or hum or getting hot, the blades are very clean, since the hood was hardly used, but shut itself off in about 5 minutes, is there anything that causes lower voltage? Like relay or fuses.

  • mbeg49 Nov 09, 2008

    voodoomox, the hood has two motors and are very clean, both work at the lower speed just fine for about 5 minutes before shutting themself off, I touch the motors while running, neither gets hot or make funny noise as sick motors usually do, and further the possibility of both motors go bad at the same time is slim.

You might have a small short that causes the fan to go at a slow speed and to cut off after five minutes so that it will not catch on fire. You may need a new motor, but get it checked by a professional to see why both fans are acting the same way.

    It also might be the circuit board running the fans that could also be faulty.

If just one of the motors is causing a strain the circuit will protect , the motor doesn't have to get hot or make noises to cause the protect circuit to engage and shut down
the only way we can find out whats going on is to do some tests , can you do some meter testing?

I assume that you have the complete manual, if not you can find it here;
http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=ZV1050SFSS&SITEID=MON2&TABID=4

I find it a little odd that on page 8 of the manual it states your exact problem, almost like they know it's a problem area. Still

if you are able to take the unit apart and get to the control buttons are you able to check and see that they are not jammed up? from left to right button 5 is used to control the delayed timer function. I would look at this one first check that it is not constantly being pressed in or gummed up causing the unit to think that you are depressing the button constantly.

I mention button 5 as the first delay time is 5 minutes you say that after 5 minutes the unit turns off.

Hope this was helpful, even if its just giving you another idea.

Seeing as there are 2 fans and BOTH are working at diminished speeds, it is likely to be a problem somewhere along the speed controller circuit.

First I would check the terminals on the controller switch.
Look for any corossion or visible scorch marks.

Also check the wires leading from the control circuit to the motors for melted wiring or burn marks.
Any Damage discovered should be repaired by an authorized repair tech or someone skilled will electrical repair.

If you do not find any obvious damage, the next step depends on how comfortable you are working with electrical/electronic testing. Using a Volt Ohm Meter (VOM / Multimeter) and or continuity tester, you or a service tech should check each of the 4 speed control circuits leading to the motor(s). Any circuit found to have an open or short circuit should be repaired/ replaced.

Hopefully this helps you out,
and thank you for choosing FixYa

If you can remove the fan itself from the mount, do so and clean the properller, the motor and the case if it is possible. dirt build up may cause the fan to have less power. you may clean the motor part then put some light axle grease on it or a contact cleaner. if the issue persists replace the motor.

    possibly, when you cleaned the motors, did you check if they have scratches, a contact point between the coils and the magnet?

You can try spraying some electronic contact cleaner on the fan motor windings and see if it helps. Once you spray it you can turn the fan by hand to work it in. If that does not help, you either have too low of voltage driving the fan, or the fan must be replaced.

The fan should have a clutch that regulates the speed , when this is defective, it may run slower than normal.

    Tips on how to repair your kitchen hood

    I think they are right , it is a faulty motor.

    I quote:

    "





    1. If the fan instead of turning hums, or moves very slow, or becomes very hot then you might need to replace the fan motor.










    2. Remove the motor and replace but before doing so make sure that you have properly disconnected the power supply.

Fan is not working but makes a humming noise at lower speeds and clanking noise at highest speed. When last working there was the clanking noise when I turned off the fan. Please help.


Then turn it off immediately just to be safe that nothing will be broken, can you see the interior? Is there anything broken or loose that might cause the noize? If yes remove.
If not try to clean it with a little cloth or anything, maybe it is too dusty.

Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

I believe that's the "change or clean filter" indication. Clean the aluminum filters in the dishwasher, replace the charcoal filters if non-ducted, press the fan light over 3 seconds and it should reset.

Took filter out to clean and now have a humming sound when the hood is turned on but the motor is not working.


Hi,
When you took the filter out to clean it you got something against the fan blade....probably when you reinstalled the filter,,,pull it back out and try the fan... if it works then you know the filter is installated wrong...

Fan has a humming noise and locking up


a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!
