    Seems there is a real problem with the control panels on these models shorting out and frying both the circuit board and the plastic control panel after 2 to 4 years of service. It is obvious Zephyr should be doing more than just sending free parts but that discussion is for another time and place. Removing the cover panel is a snap (5 screws) but removing the plastic front control panel and circuit board seems to have an trick that is not at all obvious.

My Zephyr Typhoon Range Hood (AK2100) neither light nor fan work i can not find fuse box


There shouldn't be a fuse box on the range hood.
You'll have to check your main house circuitbreaker or fuse box.

Fan and lights blew off


check the fuse. (see post about control board.)
excerpt: ... the control board is in the front of the hood behind the speed & light power buttons. There is a 3/4" Buss fuse onboard that seems to pop on my hood every few months.
