Improper air flow was also my problem. The contractor did a terrible installation job. The duct work was incomplete at the transition piece (he used the under cabinet space as part of the duct) and did not seal the duct to the fan assembly. Both items were not readily visible. Once the duct was correctly installed, the unit works fine. Remember a down draft is never as good as an overhead vent.

Fan is not working but makes a humming noise at lower speeds and clanking noise at highest speed. When last working there was the clanking noise when I turned off the fan. Please help.


Then turn it off immediately just to be safe that nothing will be broken, can you see the interior? Is there anything broken or loose that might cause the noize? If yes remove.
If not try to clean it with a little cloth or anything, maybe it is too dusty.

Need Fan Switch part 19-11-915-01 Model H30HQS


Ouch.
Looks like you are out of luck.
Even the compatible Bosch part AP2831861 is discontinued.
As shown below, it appears to be just a standard, variable-speed switch.
I suggest trying to find one at the hardware store that is the same size or trying check an electronics shop that something similar.
Good luck.

Taillights wont work, flashers work and brake lights work


The "Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel RH361 36" Wall Mount Range Hood with 3 Speeds and 600 CFM Power" doesn't have tail-lights, but you probably knew that.. ;)
On all vehicles the tail lights are a completely separate wiring than the brake and flashers. Look at the fuses for tail lights rather than brake, turn signals or emergency flashers. The tail lights many times use the same fuse as the dash lights, so look for those fuses too.
The bulbs could be bad, but it's seldom both side would be out at the same time.. also look at the wiring, though this would be difficult to trace on most autos.

I installed a new Broan QML30SS range hood and fan makes loud humming sound as it runs


An old elecricians joke says "do you know why it hums? It dosn't know the words" Al kidding aside ,have you checked to see how free the fan blade is? The should spin very freely. It kind of sounds to me like it may be having a hard time comming up to full speed. You may try some graphite lube on the motor. If I recall Broan has a lifetime garrentee on the motor. You might just want to repace it if I am correct.

KWCU405SSS fan motor high speed only


Agreed! It totally works. Our fan and lights were stuck on high. Flipped the hood circuit breaker off for 30 seconds then back on again and all controls are working normally again. Thanks!

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.

Nutone WA6500 range hood fan motor noisy


We have the same product, 18 months in use and the very noisy motor has finally seized up. I contacted the manufacturer and was advised that I need a new motor, motor mounting bracket and fan rotor. The agent was not able to quote me a price for the parts but stated that even though my 1-year warranty had expired, if I faxed them a copy of the original sales reciept they could possibly send me the parts for free under the original warranty agreement. I've done as they asked but haven't received a reply as yet. After reading about all the problems with this product I'm tempted to dump the whole unit and try to find another manufacturer that has a reliable and QUIET range hood.

Random fan speeds and light levels???


I have the same issue. Have to reset the breaker to make it stop. Bet it is a bad controller (design fault).
