Switch to operate the blower unit works sometimes

The switch only operates when it wants to. If I tap on it it will come on. I would like to replace the switch. It is a variable speed switch. Where to find part # and how to install. My model # SGCV36G
Thanks,
Rich

    I have the same unit, the same problem. I popped the cap from around the switch, then removed the cap/cover (just 2 or 3 phillips head screws from the ends). I found that the switch's threading that held the washer (which holds the switch secure) had broken off, leaving less that enough threading to be grabbed by the washer. Now I just have to replace the switch!

How can you manually open the Kitchen Aid KIRD861HSS?


By removing the decorative cover plate you somewhat expose the units inner workings. Carefully, insert a small sharp object into the unit at the point in which the micro-switch(es) are exposed. The micro-switch(es) will appear as small little plastic tabs that are poking out. While simultaneously depressing the power button, insert the sharp object into the micro-switch(es) closing the circuit. The down draft will raise enough to the point in which you can re-seat or install the filter thus making it operational.

Downdraft vent won't stay down. Push the button and it retracts normally, then pops right back up?


check your bottom limit switch - i'm guessing its bad. the unit doesn't stop operating til it trips a (working) limit switch, if the switch is bad it'll cyle right past it and go back up until it hits the top limit switch (again).

Fan switch not work - Viking 3048SS brand new range hood


There is the on off switch and the blower control that controls the speed of the fan. It is more than likley the blower control that would need replaced.

There could also be a wire disconnected in the hood.

steve...first, is the light working? If not, you may not have power. If so, turn off all power to the unit at the breaker. Remove the filter and see if the blower turns easily by hand. Yes...switch could be bad...no...motor bad.

Open up unit and using test light from the hardware store and motor plug disconnected...turn on fan and probe the motor feed wire for power. It may be the switch that's bad. This should tell you.

Unit will sometimes not turn on


NASCAR...I'm thinking more like the switch. If you can, with the power off gain access to the switch wiring. find the lead that goes to the power and the motor. Connect them directly (you might need a paper clip). Tape it all up securely and fire up the power. If it works...you will know about the switch...if not, you might look at the motor. By the way...check that motor rotation...it should turn easily when you give it a spin. Motors of the type used in fans generally don't degrade in performance unless they get gummed up with kitchen grease. Clean the grease off with WD 40.
