Problems with Kenmore 30 in. Updraft Range Hood with 3-Setting Ha

As soon as the lights are screwed in, they are at the brightest setting. Can't adjust to other settings or turn the lights off with out using a  potholder; the lights will burn you.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description of the problem indicates a most like faulty 3-setting switch. Specifically, the last setting/brightest is shorted hence any other setting would makes no difference.

An alternate likely possibility is a burned wire/connector or relay/triac short.

While relatively a minor/easy repair, it is the dis-assembly to have access to and remove the 3-setting switch is the challenge.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like you may have a burnt out resistor internally in the device and then it goes to the default setting with that being the brightest. You will need to find this burnt out resistor and replace it. It shouldn't cost too much for a new one. I would think that Kenmore would have a replacement if you give them a call or depending on its design, Radio Shack may also have one.

Lights quit working on broad range hood


The tiny metal tabs that contact the very end of the light bulb after it is screwed in making a circuit get pushed back too far when you tighten the bulb and with all the steam and muck eventually fail to make contact. shut down the power and use a tiny screwdriver to gently nudge the electrical contacts back up "a little cleaning wouldn't hurt either" look at the very bottom of your bulb, clean that too perhaps with a few strokes of a wire brush, gently put the bulb back in and you are good to go, mine did the same thing.

Kenmore range hood model 31093. The fan motor sounds like its running but the blade is not turning. The blade turns freely when swith is off.


Hi,
The fan shaft is stripped out inside the hub of the fan...this is fairly common and can be tough to fix...some hubs can be "egg"shaped with a large pliers to make them grip the shaft...
Others I have jammed a small piece of metal in to make them grip...
Also have glued some together with a glue like an expoxy cement that will get hard and hold everything together...

Each one I view and do differently depending on what I find and what's available...

GE Deluxe 30 Range Hood ---can't find a 2 way bulb (Light/night light)???


The current Convertible Deluxe rangehood from GE doesn't support a two-way (light/night light bulb). You can use an incandescent light with an A15 type (60 watts or less) or a compact fluorescent (A17 or T2) with an ordinary screw base that draws no more than 13 watts. Some models can only use the incandescent light (RN328, JN327, JV338). The recommended compact fluorescents are available from www.gelighting.com (product codes: 85383 or 47486). Check you manual or products.geappliances.com for a pdf of your manual.

I wish that I could be of more help.

How to adjust headlights-2002 Grand Prix


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

How do I adjust the headlights on 2001 hyundai tiburon?


Pop the hood and you should see two dials (hex shaped plastic screws) on each of the headlight assemblies. One is for your high beams and one is for your low beams. You'll need to measure from the ground up to the center of your bulb and make that marking on the wall for each of your bulbs (so four marks). Then park about 30 feet away from the wall (make sure you're on a level surface that's level with the wall base. If the light says VOR, then the top of the brightest area of the light should line up with the mark. if it says VOL, then the top of the brightest area of the light should line up two inches below the mark.

Broan allure II range hood


Did you ever find out what blew the fuse originally? Do the lights have a dimmer feature on them? If so, the reostsat may be bad, or the switch that controls the light intensity, 1,2,3. ect. Something caused the fuse to blow, maybe a wire on the bulb or switch somewhere.
