Question about Faber Pro Magnum 605989 Kitchen Hood

Open Question

Grease dripping out of control panel

We have the Faber Pro Magnum and we love it's blower power. It is a little loud at full blast but the exhaust is great. However we have been using it for 5 years and though we have cleaned the filters fairly regularly the grease seems to have built up in the channels on the control panel is oozing grease as well as the area nearer the back of the range. It looks like it is hard to reach that area. Any wisdom on how to clean this and stop the build up? Thanks David

As the fan is not working but the light does work, it is either a defective fan switch or burned out fan motor. You can replace either one without removing the vent hood from the wall, but you need to use an ohm meter to decide which component is defective.

The fan switch should have 0 ohms of resistance when switched on. If it doesn't, replace the switch. If it does, you need to replace the fan motor.

Note - This is only for informational purpose.This is mere speculation what could be the cause on the basis of the symptoms you mentioned.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Can you suggest a good degreeser to clean cassete filters tried several products but not very effective

I"m not sure what you mean by cassete filters, unless it's two filters. I take mine out and put them in the dishwasher!! Works great, The grease comes out and they shine again after I take them out. It does not hurt them, I have been doing this for years.

Problem changing halogen bulbs on perla rangehood

The more I worked with it, the more I discovered that the real problem was that a screw was not all the way screwed in and it was preventing the panel from sliding. Another problem I may have is finding the glass covered halogen bulb.
