Re: Clicking sound with the unit off.

This has nothing to do with the wind. Our house was recently built. The duct for the Broan fan system beats fairly constantly whether it's windy or not. It's continuous and regular. Yes, before reading this page, I found the source of the noise. Yes, it's the exterior flap. I've noticed that it seems to be caused by a difference in the interior air pressure. In the winter, windows and doors are closed and the thumping seems to be more constant. If I open the back door in the kitchen, however, the noise stops. Sometimes, on the other hand, it stops by itself. I actually called Broan customer service and I'm a bit unclear, but it sounded as if others may have complained about this. For what it's worth, the representative recommended weather stripping around the vent.

Re: Clicking sound with the unit off.

Its probaly the duct. There is a little hinged door which is in the ducking right where the fan connects to your duct's, somtimes they play in the wind. I have heard this problem before. Is the clicking perfectly sycronized?

Is your motor wearing down? It sounds like it needs replacing.
A worn out motor will try to run for a while then finally just give up and quit.

I have QS3 series range hood. Fans are not working though lights are okay. When I click the fan buttons it does turn green, with clicking sound however fan doesn't turn on. Please advice

Sometimes they can be cleaned and oiled and they will work again...
Cleaning the grease and dust with out ruining the motor is the tricky part...
Take the unit apart as much as possible...spray down the fan part with a degreaser or strong cleaner...let it soak and they spray it down with water to rinse it off...
Then work a few drops of light motor oil into the motor by proping up the fan so that the oil will run down the shaft and into the motor...

then get it running smoothly by working it by hand...

Put it all back together and it should work again...

We would like to replace or clean the fan filter

This is a charcoal filter and cannot be cleaned out. If your extractor is no longer working efficiently then you should replace the charcoal filter/s.

I require a circuit diagram for the electonic controls of a Robinhood 9000 series rangehood

The Link Below will take you to their website archive page. You will need the exact model number, with all numbers and letters, from the plate on the unit (Probably inside the vent filter). Click on "Please select a model" and choose your model from the drop-down list and three links will appear. One will be the "Parts and Service Manual PDF" Clicking on this link will give you the wiring Diagram.

Good Luck
