Question about Broan-NuTone Allure II QS230SS Kitchen Hood

Broan Allure II

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)

Re: Broan Allure II

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.

Re: Broan Allure II

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 !

When i removed the burnt out bulb, the whole socket, (rings) came out with the bulb, I didn't notice it until I returned with new bulb, at that time old bulb was already gone.... can i purchase a new...

I am sure that part is still available, however a model number would help in locating the part. NuTone has three different Allure series. You can check here for the part this is NuTone's website
Or this company has a form to help you find the part

42" Allure II Broan Range Hood I put a new bulb to replace

Get two new bulbs and install them. These bulbs are exposed to a lot of heat above the stove and the filaments get brittle. I suspect that the filament on the bulb that still worked broke when you were screwing it out or back in. good luck. please rate my answer. thanks noreen.

Can not get halogen bulb out of my kennmore elite range hood

You will have to do the following steps.

1. remove filters
2. Unscrew 2 screws retaining metal plate under the filters.
3. Now you must remove the whole light panel. 5 screws in all, three under the front lip and two at both back ends of the same panel.
4.You now unhook the light wires (plastic connector with two wires)

Now you have the whole pnale in your hands. Unclip the socket of "problem side" and unscrew the socket from the bulb. Re-do steps

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.

Did you ever find out what blew the fuse originally? Do the lights have a dimmer feature on them? If so, the reostsat may be bad, or the switch that controls the light intensity, 1,2,3. ect. Something caused the fuse to blow, maybe a wire on the bulb or switch somewhere.
