Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

Broan elite RM5200 hood fan and light. I purchased this unit not quite two years ago. To date we have had to change the light fuse 3 times! Fan fuse has never needed changing. I am sure this shouldn't be happening. What can I do? Phoned Broan and warranty is over so they won't help at all.

Hi shealy,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: This hood worked fine until a light bulb blew out. Put in a new light bulb, but the lights will not turn off. Is the light switch bad or is there a problem with the control panel? The fan still works fine but the lights will not turn off or adjust dim or bright.

You're on the right track. The light control switch needs replacing. You might try utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If you have the tools and ability just remember to turn off the electric first.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Changing fuse on Nutone Allure Ws2

Hi Mertl, I sure hope you found the solution since, but I am posting the answer for other people like me (and you) who need to find it !

The service manual says:

To replace the fuse:
1. Disconnect power at service entrance.
2. Remove filters, bottom panel, light wire harness, and air chute.

The fuse is actually right behind the fan controls, so to access it you need to disassemble everything that's in the way.

BTW, for anyone wondering if it's the fuse that's faulty, here's a clue:

If the fuse has opened (blown), the green fan-level indicators
will operate properly when the fan buttons/switches are pressed
- but the fan and lights will not turn on.

The fuse is a 5 x 20 mm, 10 Amp, Fast-Acting, 125V (min.).

Good luck all !

How do I replace a fan in a Broan bathroom fan/light combo Model 164-K


I just replace the whole thing if it has attic access. Have an electrician do it if you are not confident of your skill. Having the light work is not very helpful if the unit is shot. Clean and lubricate the fan shaft on your new one once a year and it will last a long time. You may be able to swap out just the fan if unplugs and it is not riveted in but you will have about the same time and money into it as replacement.

Light button blinking why


The fan light switch blinks when it is time to clean the filter. Clean the filter, then press and hold the switch for 3 seconds to reset it.

Brian range hood model CJD130SS fan light on display flashes with fan off or on.


I believe that's the "change or clean filter" indication. Clean the aluminum filters in the dishwasher, replace the charcoal filters if non-ducted, press the fan light over 3 seconds and it should reset.

Broan range vent fan not working; motor humming but will not turn, light works fine, not the fuse.


The motors will go bad from time to time. I would check Broan's web site

Kitchen Hood Broan Nutone RM5200 Hood won't pull air.


There is definetly somthing blocking the air from escaping, either the duct is blocked or the installer did not remove the metal plate which opens the fan up for it to be able to evacuate.

Fan and lights come on and go off all day long on their own


We installed our Broan-Allure range hood about ten years ago. On three seperate occasions since, the fan has randomly turned on and none of the control buttons would turn it off. After a while it turns itself off. During those same times, when you turned the lights on, they would blink before finally staying on. On each occasion, I have removed the screens and metal underpieces to gain access to the circut board. Once you can see the circut board, remove and replace the 3 Amp fuse that is mounted on the board. (Radio Shack part # 270-1054)...even if the fuse looks good, replace it. Each time this has work for about three years, then it acts up again..

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.

Broan Allure II


I called Broan technical support. They said that they had heard of this issue before, but that there was no recall. I suggested that it was a frequent enough problem for it to come up 3 times in 12 mo. on one website. She was underimpressed with this statistic and said that they sell millions of them. She would not disclose the name of their supplier so that I could get some information on the actual controller unit. She did not seemed as pained as I was by having to part with $130 for a new controller.
