No Power - Problem locating fuse

The hood has lost power and I am trying to verify that it is not a problem with the fuse. I was told that to locate the fuse, I need to take the duct outer panel off. I unscrewed the top screws, thinking I could easily take the cover off. However, that was not the case. Next, I tried removing the bottom portion of the hood, thinking that the cover would slide down, but this did not work. So, I am thinking I may need to take the motor off to find what I am looking for, but this seems ridiculous. Does anyone have a recommendation to be able to find the fuse on this hood?

Re: No Power - Problem locating fuse

Unfortunately on these island hung types you have to drop top duct slightly and remove the WHOLE canopy (yes I know it's huge) and then remove the duct completely to expose the box housing the pc board. The only other way is to remove all the panels from the bottom and remove canopy to bottom, and then slide ducts down untill box is exposed. In any event this is not an easy job, and I wouyld advise expertise. Good Luck! Oshie

Re: No Power - Problem locating fuse

I have repaired many Gaggenau extractors before. On this model you were correct to remove two top screws from duct. The top and lower duct slide inside each other, and should be removed as 1 unit, by lifting the lower duct UP and then away from the wall. Sometimes there are two further screws holding the bottom duct to the canopy. Remove the filters and check for screws from inside canopy. Once ducts are removed you will see the a box, metal or plastic. Remove lid and you will see the pc board. There is a 10A fuse on there. Some models do not have fuses, and the whole board should be replaced! Good luck! C.

Unit has no power. Circuit breaker OK. Is there a fuse somewhere in the hood?

Very likely the power supply unit is faulty or the controller itself. The parts list shows no fuse internally. The power is directly going to the control board (item 3). Make sure you turn power to the rangehood off at circuit breaker before working on it.

Bosch dke 935 90cm hood. light and extractor not working

The fuse will be located in the switch or socket that the hood is connected to. This is sometimes inside the flue on the back wall. There should be two small screws either side of the chimney located at the top, unscrew and slide one part of the chimney down, please be careful as stainless steel has very sharp edges.

Jenn-Air 30 in. Under Cabinet Hood had no instructions on how to

This is a straight forward wiring project involving 110 volts of electricity and a 15 amp circuit.

If there is already power available at this location use it. If not, run a wire to the cabinet above the hood location with enough extra to drop down into the hood area and hook it up.

Once you have the power wire in place it is just a matter of hooking the wires up black-black, white-white, ground-ground screw.

enjoy your new hood.

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.
