Airking Granada 36" Range Hood - fan doesn't work

Yesterday i was cooking i had 4 burners on and my range hood on low. All of the sudden, the fan/motor just stopped working. I thought it overheated and would need time to cool off and would work again. But a day later, the fan/motor is still not working. The light button works and they turn on and off, but none of the fan speeds are working. It just makes a little click sound when i press the fan buttton. Any ideas? I checked the instruction manual and there is no troubleshooting for this particular model. I had the hood a little over a year and haven't had a problem up until now. It isn't covered under warranty anymore i dont' think. Thanks!

Re: Airking Granada 36" Range Hood - fan doesn't work

Often these motors have a condensor on the side - a bit like a cross between the little white cylinder in a flourescent light housing and a starter motor - they are a bit vulnerable but are pretty cheap and easy to replace. Sounds like that is the problem - little click is it trying to start but not getting the extra help from the condensor. any good electrician should be able to fix it quickly, unless a part needs to be ordered in. he should also check if there is a fuse inside, and if the main part of the motor is ok. If the motor has died completely (which is rare) then it is still probably worth replacing, but might be a but costly. also there could be a relay connected to the switch (a way for a small switch to transfer heavier current to something) - and sometimes these can also fail. Also easy for an electrician to check and fairly cheap to replace. some motors also have a thermal protection device, which may be able to be reset by pressing a small button on the side somewhere, also possibly faulty and cheap and easy to check/replace. if you can look at the motor easily, just see if there is a small plastic push button switch (almost certainly connected to the body of the motor somewhere) if so, make sure the power is off, push it in and it should click to an "in" position. Might solve the problem. If you get a guy in to look at it and he is struggling to find the parts, please post again and we can try and source them online for you. If you fancy trying it yourself then post again and we can try and talk you through it, not TOO hard but you would need a bit of electrical knowledge and tools. Hope this helps :)

Thermador CVS36R Cook'n'vent vent won't go down and fan stopped workin

You probably will find that the vent is clogged with grease. A switch device works with the vent so the fan operates only when the vent is open and does not operate when the vent is closed. Things should get back to normal after a thorough cleaning unless the fan is defective and won't operate at all.

Oven won't pre-heat

you have either a bad touch panel or a bad control board. try reseating the ribbon cables on the control before replacing. just remember to turn the power off before opening the unit
