Question about Broan-NuTone Allure II QS230SS Kitchen Hood
I have a Broan Allure range hood. It's 5 years old. Recently the bulbs went out, a few weeks apart. My wife said it made a big flicker and blew, now upon installing the new bulbs, there is no control over the lights - no on/off and no dimming function. Any ideas? Everything else works fine (fan on/off and multiple speeds)
The problem is definetly the control board.
Part# R111638=$110.00. I do service calls for broan.

My range hood lights would only work on highest setting. nothing on low or medium setting. fan working fine. I tripped the breaker off then on again at the electrical panel and behold, everything works perfectly fine now. don't know why it worked but it did!

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.

Had a ghost operating the fan; would start at any time, change speed on its own... So I took the dawm thing apart to see what was underneat, 10 screws to remove quite easy.
Did a "reset": disconnected the electric board connectors (there are 2 connectors located in the front part of the fan right behind the control buttons. Just pull the connectors and reconnect them a few seconds after, though you achieve similar results from the electric box, turning off the braker for a few seconds. So far so good, the exorcism seems to work !
