I have a Best K41-1 and my variable speed on the blower does not work. It only works on high speed when slid into that position. What could be the problem?

I have the same problem (again) but with the lights not working also so something else is going on. The usual fix for the fan on high issue is to replace the switch assembly (SB06105117). It's an $80 part. This worked for me the first time it happened. If you are handy then it's a 1/2 hour project - turn the power off at the breaker.

The fan motor makes a noise but doesn not start rotating, if you rotate the fan the motor kick in and continues to work until it os turned off.

The motor probably is not starting because the bearings are a bit stiff....
Take the hood apart and give it a good cleaning, being careful to not get the motor wet...
Then if you can get the hood in a position to run some light motor oil down the shaft and into the motor... spin the shaft as you do this... get oil worked into the motor bearings then it will probably work again...

I have a Broan Elite 2736 downdraft range fan that is 3 years old. Upon using it , it started to go up and then down without stopping until I unplugged it. I replugged it in and it continues to go up and...

Broan model 2736A won't stay up

In my case, I pushed the button, the housing goes fully up, then right back down. I removed and disassembled the unit for cleaning. After Assembly I located two microswitches that cause the extension moror to stop at the top and at the bottom of the swing. In my case, the inertia of the motor caused the unit to "Coast" thru the top of the stroke and continue back down. I bent the outer 1/3 of the metal tabs that depress the microswitches so that the unit stopped rising a wisker sooner and no longer goes back down without pushing the button. The same coasting theroy may apply at the bottom of the stroke. The motor that runs the up and down motion is controlled by three switches, the two limit switces plus the momentary push button switch. If you don;t need to completely remove your unit for cleaning, the microswitchs can be located by removing the fan housing and looking up from inside the cabinet (under the stove) on the right side. IN my case, there was 10 years of goop to be removed.

My Range Hood (Best by Broan K260A) is just two years old in a new house. WHen I use it, fat & grease drip down from the left and right edges against the wall. Can someone tell the problem?

grease accumulation, remove the fours screws on the lower plate, to remove excess grease. further you can unscrew the bolt that are holding the assembly and unplug the unit. after remove fans with allen key and remove motor , clean and reassemble , make shure to put motor the right back the same way. reassemble the same way , problem should be solve for at least 7 years depending on cooking.

I just had a Broan Elite E662 hood installed and it is blowing out instead of pulling air in. I held a tissue up to the filter and it does not pull it up...rather it blows it down. Was something done...

It sounds like the fan blade may be installed upside down, or the entire motor/fan assembly is upside down. Typically, these small motors aren't reversible, so you should check the blade first.

Noisy fan or motor?

HI. The most common issue here will be with a loose motor shaft. This is the part that the fan blades are mounted on. When this occurs, the looseness will cause the motor, and shaft to wobble, thus, causing this noise you here at high speeds. The wobble is less violent during the slower speeds, so it is not loud, in this case.

The second issue will be a warped fan blade. This will cause the fan to rub against the shroud, thus, creating the noise, as well.

If the shaft is loose, or bent, the entire motor will need to be replaced. Now, if the fan blade is warped, you can, simply, unscrew the blade from the shaft, and replace it(on most model)

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

Whispaire - Fan stopped working

You would definetly be able to replace the motor yourself, if your a handy person.

1. You must take off the blade before starting which is only held on by pressure and a mini little metal clip at the tip of shaft.

2. Motor bracket is held on by 4 star/phillips headed screws, two are located under the metal plate the retains all the wires on the right side, and two located on the left side of motor housing.

3. The motor is wired with a plastic connector (plug in plug out). Once motor bracket has been unscrewed and removed there is 4 star/phillips screws holding the motor on the bracket.

Restart proceedure to install the new motor. Part #K7448-000

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.
