Replacing fan speed control circuit board on a Broan range hood

This is the Broan Nutone QT236. The fan switch shorted out during an install, so I got a replacement part sent out. I am not familiar with the harness the red and black leads go into...the old one is still installed, so I can see where they go, but it is not obvious to me how to remove the old ones from the harness. The replacement red lead has a clip on it, which does not look like it wants to come out of the plastic harness fitting easily, once in place. The black lead is just straight wire, but the old one does not just pull out easily from the harness fitting. Thanks!

Hi if the new part has no screw holes or place for clip and it is only push in connector ie you dont need to solder the wires to it then it will just pull out use a small screw driver under the edge and gently pry free you cant damage it anymore than it is anyway can you.
Also on the side of the new switch if their is no groove cut into it for a push on clip to hold it in place then it will just pull out and push the new one in.

Hello,

The Problem is the wiring. Take the 2 screws retaining the metal plaque off underneath the filters. You will see the wires leaving the motor going into a "molex" plastic connector which connects two another set of wires going to the control board. Check to see if the wiring colors match from side to side of plastic connector. Ive only seen it happen once but it was exactly that. I do service calls for broan & Nutone

SOURCE: Broken light switch on a Nutone

The Black 120vac Line In wire goes into "L". The Black wire goes into "2". The Red Wire goes into "3". When you install the switch, the Red and Black wires will be on top of the switch.

Fan turns on and off since turning hood light on a few days ago


If it is a Broan, there is a delay button that was also depressed. It will turn the fans off after a few minutes. If not, then you're shorted out either in the control panel or the wiring in the range hood.

Lights won't turn off - everything else works fine


I have a NuTone Allure WS2 range hood. The fan works fine, so does the control board seem ok, but the lights work only intermittently. NuTone tech support said to replace the control board, which I suspect is its kneejerk response. The board costs almost $200--and for two lights???

My problem is similar to the one whose lights work, fan doesn't, but I have a feeling my problem is different.I hope simpler.

Thanks in advance for help (light) on the problem anyone can offer.

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 range hood


Did you ever find out what blew the fuse originally? Do the lights have a dimmer feature on them? If so, the reostsat may be bad, or the switch that controls the light intensity, 1,2,3. ect. Something caused the fuse to blow, maybe a wire on the bulb or switch somewhere.

Random fan speeds and light levels???


I have the same issue. Have to reset the breaker to make it stop. Bet it is a bad controller (design fault).
