Hello,

There is actually a fuse on the power panel of this unit. The KitchenAid warming drawer is having a power problem since its not having any power. Now, you need to check the area/part of the unit which has to do with power and that would be the power board.

Get a screw driver and find away to disassemble the unit. Check the power board for any blown fuse and make necessary replacement.

You should find what's wrong the moment you disassemble the unit and check then power board.

Good luck.

follow this steps with VOM and fix it. God bless you
1. No power to the range hood
Make sure there's power getting to the range hood. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket (unless the hood is hard wired) for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Fan switch
If your range hood only has a fan and no light or any other features, it won't start with a broken fan switch. Replace the switch if found defective.

3. Fan motor
If your range hood only has a fan and no light or any other features, it won't start with a broken fan motor. Replace the motor if found defective.

if both fan and light have quit working then you have an electrical supply problem. start with checking for thrown breakers in the breaker panel. if none are tripped then you have a broken wire or a wire no longer making a good connection. try twisting the wire nuts tighter were it wires in above it

Hi,
It is possible that if you can get the motor out of there and get some WD-40 worked into the bearings you can get it running again...
turn it so the shaft is pointing up and then spray the WD-40 right on the shaft and let it run down and into the bearing...

once you get the shaft spinning more freely then place a few drops of light motor oil or sewing machine oil on the shaft and let it run into the bearing before turning the motor from the shaft up position and reinstalling...

Suddenly the light and the fan quit . Is there a reset


the only "reset" is the circuit breaker.... if they both suddenly quit working, there is no power to the hood at all.... if the breaker/fuse at the box is good, then the hot wire has slipped out of the connection.... not an easy way to trace it. all you can do is work backwards, starting at the power box up inside the hood. if all those connections are tight (power supply to unit's wires) then it's in the wall, attic, or under the floor.... no fun.

The blower motor hums but does not move/work. When I give the motor/fan a little push with hand it starts working. A day or two later it is back to the same situation where it hums and needs a push.


The little fan is going out.you can disconnect the power to it,and remove it,to see if you can clean it,then it might start working,do not oil it,it will catch fire,but I suggest to replace it.I hope this is helpful,if so,please let us know,thank you.

Fan not working The fan on the hood stopped working (i.e., nothing happens when I turn it on). From this wiring diagram: http://www.fixya.com/support/p106093-kitchenaid_kwcu265hss_kitchen_hood/manual-13670/page-9, you can see that the hood has two circuit boards. One for slided switches and speed control (Part Number: AP3133509 made by WHIRLPOOL), and one for motor control (Part Number: AP3105889 made by WHIRLPOOL ). My best guess was that the motor control board went bad, so I ordered a new motor control board to replace it. You will see five wires coming out of the speed control portion of the first board. The white wire goes directly to the fan motor, but the other four (blue, orange, black, and black), go to the motor-control board which also has four wires of the same colors. OK. Blue to blue, orange to orange. No problem. But what about the two black wires coming from the speed controller and going to the two black wires on the motor-control board? Does it matter how these are connected? I figured if it mattered, they would also be color coded, so I just connected black to black, black to black (random order). When I turned on the fan, it blew out my new motor-control board. I have a new motor-control board. I was going to try reversing the two black wire connections, but don't want to blow out another board. So, my question is, do you think it is important to match a specific black wire on the motor-control board to a specific black wire coming from the speed controller? It seems strange to me that it would work this way, as these wires snake around through the hood, and it virtually impossible to tell which is which when when they reach the motor-control board. I don't know how they would be been matched during original assembly. But I can't think of any other problem. By the way, I was able to by-pass the motor-control board and run the fan directly, so I don't think the problem is with the fan motor. I have also replaced the control board used for the slider switches and speed control, so the problem is not there either. Thought welcome. Thanks. jp
