Question about Broan-NuTone Rangemaster RMDD3004 Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

Broan kitchen hood - frenetic chimney

Hi

We have a RMDD3004 bron hood. Yesterday evening, al of a sudden the chimney went crazy, rising and going down over and over again. The control button did not seem to work.

I tried to reset it by cutting off the power with the breaker... no change.

And of course... warranty has expired 2 weeks ago...

Any help to fix this would be very welcome.

Thanks!
Flo.

It can be 2 things.

1. The motor that elevates the fan is turning a tad to much. Just by stepping on the floor near it could cause it to go up/down constantly.
2.Or what i had seen was the wires that go to the switch dont have enough slack, and are just making contact to the switch causing it to think somone is pushing the button constantly.

There is way too many steps involved to type out.

My Broan range hood keeps going up and down. Will not stop. I unplugged it and plugged back in but keeps going up and down. The hood is almost 2 yrs old. Pls help. Thank you.


This sounds like something has got into the track area and is setting off the safety. they are designed to stop raising or lowering if they meet any resistance and anything in the track area will cause it to happen in both directions

Lights on hood fan will not shut off.


It sounds like your switch is getting stuck internally. It most likely needs to be replaced.

Here is a break down of your unit. http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop?DSP=30200&PCR=1:1000&IID=QS330AA&imagesequence=

Also, you can order parts directly from Broan, here. http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop?actn=quicksearch&searchtype=all&indextype=7&keyword=QS330AA


Hope this helps you somewhat, please post back if you need more help.

I have a Broan 2736 Eclipse downdraft blower system. When I push the button the downdraft rises but then immediately goes back down


Gail was spot on. That worked for me until the unit would go up and/or down on its own. The problem was traced to the double microswitch called the 'Lower Switch Bracket Assembly' ($24. thru Lowes ). To replace these switches is not for the faint of heart as it is deep within the assembly. A good weekend mechanic can look at the exploded parts diagram and see what / where. Found grease residue on- and slightly within- the microswitchs due to Broan not properly design shielding and protecting these critical switches from grease. Did not find any ghosts, however.

I have a Broan Elite 2736 downdraft range fan that is 3 years old. Upon using it , it started to go up and then down without stopping until I unplugged it. I replugged it in and it continues to go up and...


Broan model 2736A won't stay up

In my case, I pushed the button, the housing goes fully up, then right back down. I removed and disassembled the unit for cleaning. After Assembly I located two microswitches that cause the extension moror to stop at the top and at the bottom of the swing. In my case, the inertia of the motor caused the unit to "Coast" thru the top of the stroke and continue back down. I bent the outer 1/3 of the metal tabs that depress the microswitches so that the unit stopped rising a wisker sooner and no longer goes back down without pushing the button. The same coasting theroy may apply at the bottom of the stroke. The motor that runs the up and down motion is controlled by three switches, the two limit switces plus the momentary push button switch. If you don;t need to completely remove your unit for cleaning, the microswitchs can be located by removing the fan housing and looking up from inside the cabinet (under the stove) on the right side. IN my case, there was 10 years of goop to be removed.

I just had a Broan Elite E662 hood installed and it is blowing out instead of pulling air in. I held a tissue up to the filter and it does not pull it up...rather it blows it down. Was something done...


It sounds like the fan blade may be installed upside down, or the entire motor/fan assembly is upside down. Typically, these small motors aren't reversible, so you should check the blade first.
