Turboair assisis (curved glass)and splashback

I want to buy the Turboair Asissi 90cm with a curved glass hood, and I need to buy a stainless steel splashback. Does the splashback need to be curved so that the two items fit together? I can't find a splashback made by Turboair, do they make one to match this hood? If I do need toget a shaped one to fit, would the one made for the Luxair hood solve this? Otherwise, how do I solve this?

Many thanks
Lynn Botten

SOURCE: scratched stainless steel

First, I would not use ordinary steel wool. Small microscopic iron particles get embedded in the stainless steel surface and could lead to rust. There is stainless steel wool, but I have experience using sand paper, so I'll tell you about that.

When changing a faucet, thinking it wouldn't harm a stainless steel sink, I used a kitchen knife to scrape that crusty residue left from hard water. I had put in several noticeable shallow scrapes on the top part of my sink where everyone could see it.

I used a series of silicon carbide, wet/dry automotive sanding paper to hide my blunder. First 400 grit, then 600 grit, then 800, then 1000. The 1000 grit was actually to "polished" looking so I went back and finished with 800 grit, blending the refinished area out to the rest of the sink top surface. I sanded in the direction of the surface graining.

For your backsplash, the type of finish will determine what grit you'll finish with. If is it polished to a high lustre, then you'll have to go to finer grits. If it is polished to a mirror finish, then you'll have to eventually finish with a polishing compound.

While working on my sink, I had gravity to help me put weight behind my work (so to speak), but on your backsplash you'll have to awkwardly push sideways to work the sand paper, plus you may have cabinets in the way and a hood to clunk your head into. Depending on how much trouble it would be, you may find it easier to remove the backsplash.

I you are not familiar with finishing metal, you could practice on a piece of sheet metal first, getting used to how much pressure to apply, and sanding in straight strokes so you can match the backsplash's surface graining. If your backsplash has a mirror finish, you could try a polishing disk on a drill or a dremel tool first.

Sounds like the lamp has failed and maybe damaged the power switch. This, if installed correctly, will be fed from either a fused plug or a fused spur.
If it has been fitted incorrectly, no idea.

Hi Dave. you have a few choices on how to proceed with this. one way will be to tape this trim off, put a good drop cloth underneath it and then strip it off in place. Finally, sand it lightly with a 600 garnet paper, and then spray paint it stainless.

Another method would be to go to a sheet metal shop nearby and have them fabricate a piece of stainless trim for you, predrilled which you can simply add over the existing trim with some stainless steel screws. -this would be my choice.

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Fan is not working but makes a humming noise at lower speeds and clanking noise at highest speed. When last working there was the clanking noise when I turned off the fan. Please help.

Then turn it off immediately just to be safe that nothing will be broken, can you see the interior? Is there anything broken or loose that might cause the noize? If yes remove.
If not try to clean it with a little cloth or anything, maybe it is too dusty.

Dumplin husband has cleaned stainless splashback with a scourer leaving loads of scratches in all directions! Any miracle solution?

I recently had a piece of stainless bent for a customer at a sheet metal place. The guy who bent it up for me used an abrasive pad (like those green scourers) to establish the grain look where it had been removed by the bending process. Please realize this is what I observed, not something I have done myself, so you probably save it for a last resort. Good Luck

Bosch dke 935 90cm hood. light and extractor not working

The fuse will be located in the switch or socket that the hood is connected to. This is sometimes inside the flue on the back wall. There should be two small screws either side of the chimney located at the top, unscrew and slide one part of the chimney down, please be careful as stainless steel has very sharp edges.
