Question about Baumatic F60 Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

Light blown then fan doesn't work!

This is a white baumatic QF6CW 60 hood and in nearly 2 years old. One of the lights blew and they are standard screw in candle bulbs. When this happened the fan then stopped working. I just wondered does anybody know if there is a fuse or something as now both lights dont work with new bulbs nor does the fan. Thanks

Re: Light blown then fan doesn't work!

Take out switch assemby and check if the track of the pcb is blown - caused by the bulb goiung. you can often repair by soldering in wire links. bet you have 12a fuse in system - should be 3a. track has blown instead of the fuse

The light blew on my Beaumatic F60 extractor fan, thought the bulbs had gone so changed the bulbs, they lasted a couple of minutes before blowing again and then the fan wouldn't work also. I can't find a...

Look at the instruction/installation manual.
Are the bulbs 12volts or 120vac? If it is 12v there is a transformer that might be shorting to ground. If no transformer, the control panel or the control board has a short.

Lights won't turn off - everything else works fine

I have a NuTone Allure WS2 range hood. The fan works fine, so does the control board seem ok, but the lights work only intermittently. NuTone tech support said to replace the control board, which I suspect is its kneejerk response. The board costs almost $200--and for two lights???

My problem is similar to the one whose lights work, fan doesn't, but I have a feeling my problem is different.I hope simpler.

Thanks in advance for help (light) on the problem anyone can offer.

Baumatic hood bt82.1 lamps blown..

Hi johnnyi6,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: had a crackling noise then pop..looks like transformer has blown,replaced
but still no lights o.k...don't appear to be getting any power to transformer via switch? do you get push button switch out?...
bypassed light switch and lights o.k with new transformer..any ideas..

Yes, I agree, the switch went bad. It snaps in so you will break it during removal. I recomend you get the replacement switch first so you don't have a wire hanging out while you wait for the new one.

Feel free contact me again!

The extractor on my Baumatic fan stopped working. Thsi was shortly after the light bulbs blew which I replaced and they work OK. Any suggestions as to how i can resolve this?

Sounds like it was the main fan motor - that caused the lights to blow in the first place.

Isolate from supply, and get the fan motor checked out. If it is burnt out (inside) you will need a replacement.

Hope this helps.

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)

Light doesn't work on Kenmore Model 55022 Range hood...

If you have 120VAC on the center contact of the light socket, and a working fan, but the bulb won't light...the most likely cause would be a disconnected neutral wire (white) in the light wiring inside the hood....assuming everything else is wired correctly.

If you're comfortable with further electrical testing...let me know, and I can describe a detailed procedure to check the status of the neutral wire. Otherwise, you may need the assistance of someone familiar with electrical troubleshooting or appliance repair.
