Question about Frigidaire PLHV42P8CC Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Need damper for Electrolux range hood, PLHV42P8CC

I tried calling a supply house for a damper for PLHV42P8CC. Apparently it is not sold separately. Would it be connected to the Transition or some other assembly. The supply house agent was of no help.

Electrolux PLHV42P8CC/two lights working two out and replacing bulbs does not fix the issue


Good Afternoon Rick,

I see that you are having trouble with the front right and back right halogen lights not working on your Electrolux range hood, model# PLHV42P8CC. I also see that you have heard of testing and replacing the transformer inside your appliance. I suggest contacting an authorized technician. It could possibly be something other than the transformer or it is possible that it is the transformer and something else that is causing the right side lights to not come on. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

In winter, cold air blows back down and out through the fan.


Hi,
Either a backdraft damper was never installed in the ductwork or the damper is stuck open...
Has it always been this way?? If so then the damper probably was never installed and you will need to have one installed to stop the air...
If it was good at the beginning and now is not then the damper is stuck open...you will need to find it and then get it working agian...
The dampers often are right at the outlet of the hood...if you take down the hood it should be right there...

We have a vented kenmore range hood that is vented thru a pipe (out the top of the hood) to the outside of the house; air comes out the top of the hood and blows into the kitchen. why is air blowing out...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you may have a clog, in the vent pipe, not uncommon in the winter for wild things to build nest..
their is also a air damper plate, that might be stuck, this damper prevents outside air from blowing back in

Cold air is coming in from outside, didn't do this before.


Look up into the duct if possible. There should be a damper in the duct called a "backdraft damper" that closes and prevents cold air from entering the duct when the fan shuts off. The damper could also be located near the outlet of the fan which could be a wall or near the roof level (maybe in the attic if it goes through there).

Range vent damper noise


Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.

Damper need for Broan Range Hood


I called tech support at Broan and was told they recommend two dampers in cold climates ...one at in the wall cap and one on the unit. They make the damper,
(#BP87-7"), that attaches to the round duct plate that comes with the hood. Strangely the unit does not include a round damper and the seller LOWES did not have it, also checked Home Depot,.
The Tech said they can't get stores to stock it. I checked at a local supplier of all kinds of plumbing, heating, and cooling supplies and they only had basic 7" dampers which, I was told would probably be too heavy, and be manual. I ordered it through Amazon/True Value ($11.56 w/ shipping, shipping more than cost of damper). Tech indicated that the 2nd (unit damper) is optional and may not be needed if in a warm climate. I would suggest that Broan include the $5.00 item in their unit or at least sellers stock it.
