Question about Kenmore 30 in. Updraft Range Hood with 3-Setting Halogen Lighting
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.
