Question about Range Hoods

Range Hood Issue

I have a range hood with a fan speed issue. The lights work, and the fan works, but only on the highest speed setting. If I turn the fan on, then slide the fan speed switch down to the lowest setting, it just clicks a few times as I slide it towards "full power," then finally kicks in at full power when it reaches the "full power" setting. Any idea what needs to be repaired? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    New installation. Everything appears to work fine except that the fan seems to run almost at high on all three settings, with a bearly perceptible change from high to low. Very annoying!



    Is this an issue with the model or is this a manufactoring defect?

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.

Medium Fan Speed not working


Switch is probably faulty, or wire / connection to switch. If switch and wiring test ok trace wire from that button back to wherever it goes and look there for fault.

Why won`t the fan of my venmar range hood turn off?


Sounds like you may need to replace the fan switch. The fact that it wont turn off and that it only works on low speed supports that switch is broken.

Fan switch not work - Viking 3048SS brand new range hood


There is the on off switch and the blower control that controls the speed of the fan. It is more than likley the blower control that would need replaced.

There could also be a wire disconnected in the hood.

BABT83.2AL Canopy Rangehood The fan/suction is not working. A slight straining noise is heard. The light is working as is the display panel.


These units have a history of fan failure due to inferior 220 volt Italian fan.

I have just had fan fail and retrofitted a ebmpapst blower fan model D2E146HT6702 which is readily available in Aus for around $120.

The fan speed control is by inverter variable output so you don't use all the speed select wires that this fan has. Connect the Red wire on the range hood to the Black on the motor (High speed winding) and the Black on the range hood to the Blue on the motor (Neutral) and the earth to the earth (Green).

Disconnect and toss the cap in the white enclosure under the PC board enclosure (the new fan has the cap on board). Don't know how easy to fit in the range hood as mine is in an acoustic fan housing in the roof (makes it wisper quiet when running)

I called Broan technical support. They said that they had heard of this issue before, but that there was no recall. I suggested that it was a frequent enough problem for it to come up 3 times in 12 mo. on one website. She was underimpressed with this statistic and said that they sell millions of them. She would not disclose the name of their supplier so that I could get some information on the actual controller unit. She did not seemed as pained as I was by having to part with $130 for a new controller.
