    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.

Hi, my toyota yaris engine fan was working well but since winter come its working slower than in summer.is it normal??


Most radiator fans have two speeds ( high and low ). Depending on engine temperature, the computer decides which speed to operate the fan at. This may be a normal situation and you may just be noticing the fan when it is operating at the lower speed

My TLP-S10 lamp will not stay on after a couple of moments.


Is the fan working. Check fan. Very likely the device overheated. If fan is working the air filter might need to be cleaned. See you manual how to clean filter and reset the filter cleaning counter so that the device can work properly again.

Can u hookup hayward Aquabug to intex above ground pool without disconnecting existing filter? Will both filters work at the same time? I would like to clean the top of the pool at the same time I clean...


You Aquabug pool cleaner works WITH your pools filter. You much connect the cleaner to your filter system and the filters suction is what powers the cleaner. Since they operate together, you should always run your filter while you are cleaning, but it will never operate in its normal capacity since you are using it for a different purpose. Here is a copy of the users manual if you have any questions about how the cleaner works.

System is experiencing above normal temperatures unless corrected system will automatically shutdown. see manual for re-installation


Hi,I will suggest to check if fans are running properly,also dust them out with an air pressure can ,they could be filled with dust that is blocking them or making them slower.If they are not working properly after that you will need to replace them.Found some right here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/SAMSUNG-Cooling-Fan-Set-p/1173797.htm also check cooling sensor it seems to be a common failure.

2004 GL1800 gauge shows overheating at 60 mph almost to red line


Hi there!

Poor oil circulation might be the cause, purchase a new oil filter (or clean it). Do an oil change.

I would recommend the K&N Oil Filters, they are reusable and have better flow than stock.

Hope this helps!

Exaust vent/ fan very weak


In your duplicate post, you mentioned your model, so here you go:

This is due to poor air flow, either to a blockage or a problem with the internal cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan.

Are the grease filters or charcoal filter clogged?

You may want to check your owner's manual for info on checking the filters. Grease filters can be cleaned, but charcoal filters must be replaced about every 6-12 months.

The installation manual will tel you if there's some error in the installation setup.

You can download Maytag owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The ozone plates need to be cleaned monthly to work effectively. You can get an owner's manual for free from the manufacturer's website, it's at:

The manual has a description of the type and frequency of cleaning of various parts of your air purifier. Hope this helps!
