PK2229 blower stop working


Light and fan are two separate functions in your hood. The fan gets very greasy from the cooking. The grease doesn't act as a lubricant but as dirt. Remove the fan from the unit and check to see if the shaft is wiggling,or if it is seized. At this point you may need to replace motor. If it turns somewhat put a few drops of oil at the shaft, both ends if possible, and spin the fan by hand until it's loose. Replace back into hood and see what happens. Many times the bearings in these fans go dry and will not spin. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Hood not getting power. Authorized viking tech said I need to get an installer to remove the hood before he could see what the problem is. Is this typical of techs to not remove to troubleshoot?


It depends on the installation: larger hoods, intricate installs and liability concerns could all raise this concern by a tech. It should be simple to begin by checking for electric at the wiring connection inside the hood terminal box without removing the hood from the cabinet. If there is no power supplied to the hood then an electrician should correct the fault in the house wiring.

Faber range hood fan stuck


Can you start the fan while holding the motor? If it runs fine while not in the hood, then likely the fan is rubbing against something that is not letting it get up to speed. If the motor does not run when removed from the hood, then there's something wrong electrically - a start capacitor, bad motor, etc. Try to verify the fan is not rubbing on something first.

Fan stopped working on our Bosch rangehood (Type D-FX41-8 or E-Nr. DKE935AAU). Lights working but the fan only inhibits a humming sound.


hi ;
the fan motor needs repair , the cause of humming is the vibration of induction on AC current in the motor.
if the motor stopped means it has faulty shafting and bushing, or maybe the starting capacitor needs a replacement, don't turn it on or use it to prevent burning of induction wire,
also it needs a qualified technician to repair ,

Ack the fan doesn't sound like it's working. When we turn it on I hear an electrical hum, but no fan sounds. Turning the fan up to 3 doesn't change the elecrtical hum, but since I can hear that I assume...


Yes Dan the hum means power is going to the fan motor but the shaft is seized. If the photo on this site depicts your rangehood you may be able to fix it. Turn the power to the unit off. Remove the upper cowling. You should be able to see the fan. Sometimes it only takes a spin of the fan and a bit of spray on lubricant on the shaft to free it up. If it spins freely then turn power on and give it a try. Some fans will be seized tight and no matter what you do they won't spin. This means it's time to get a new fan motor.
Good luck.

Vicking VIDV500 Kitchen 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.
