How to reset my Jenn-Air Jxt8836ADS kitchen hood?

The electricity went out and when all power was returned the vent lights or fan will not work. All circuit brakers have been checked and everything else is working fine.  Is there a way to reset the hood?  The light on the time is lit and reading "0".

Re: How to reset my Jenn-Air Jxt8836ADS kitchen hood?

According to Jenn-Air (Maytag) if you remove the power from the hood for 15 minutes it will reset the board. So depending on how long the power was out the outage would have done this. There is a good possibility that the outage ruined your board.

Unit has no power. Circuit breaker OK. Is there a fuse somewhere in the hood?

Very likely the power supply unit is faulty or the controller itself. The parts list shows no fuse internally. The power is directly going to the control board (item 3). Make sure you turn power to the rangehood off at circuit breaker before working on it.

How do you replace?

Kitchen hood replacement can be completed easily with a family member or a friend. While you may wonder why anyone would replace a kitchen hood, the answer usually is simple. Here is how to replace a kitchen hood.
Tools Needed

  • New Range/Kitchen Hood
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Friend
  • Wiring Nuts
  • Circuit Tester

Warning: Remember that you are dealing with electricity, so stay away from water and use all safety precautions issued by the manufacturer.
Step 1 - Shut off Electricity

Remember to turn off the electrical supply to the old kitchen hood. You will need to do this via the circuit breaker box. Wait for 10 to 20 minutes and then test the wires with the circuit tester to double check that no electricity is being supplied to the kitchen hood.

Step 2 - Remove Old Hood

After you know for a fact that it is not receiving an electrical current, you can begin the process of removing the older kitchen hood. You should first take off the electrical wiring cover that is located by the light fixture. Then have your family member or friend hold up the old kitchen hood while you remove any screws or bolts from it. Once that is done, you can then freely slide it off.
Step 3 - Check Wiring

Double check that you have at least 12 inches of wiring to connect your kitchen hood to the wall. It should be noted that if you have a kitchen hood without vents, proceed to step 5 next.
Step 4 - Find the Ducts

If your new kitchen hood has vents, you will need to locate the fan or vent duct. Once you have found it, you can open up the vent hole where it will belong.
Step 5 - Wires

Open up the covering for the wiring and put the covering in a safe area for easy reach.
Step 6 - Install the New Kitchen Hood

Have your friend or family member hold up the kitchen hood and mark the areas where the screws or bolts will be. Then have them put down the kitchen hood and screw in the screws half way into the holes. After that, you can slide in the kitchen hood.
Step 7 - Route Wiring

Lightly pull the wiring through the proper holes and connect both black wires from the new kitchen hood to the black wire from the wall with a wire nut. Then connect the two white wires from the hood with the white wire from the wall, again using a wire nut. Next, connect the green wire to the green ground screw. Then place the wire covering back on.
Step 8 - Tighten Screws

Finish tightening the screws in place.
Step 9 - Test

Check to make sure the fan and light work. If it is supposed to vent outside, make sure that the air is leaving the vent with no issues. If something does not work proper, repeat steps 6 and 7 until everything works well. Remember that you will be working with electrical equipment, so follow safety measures issued by the state or the city.

Changed a buld in hood and it touched casing as I was inserting. Tripped the breaker. This is reset but now have no power to bulbs or fan. Is there a trip in the hood?I dont have the model number, it is a...

check to make sure you have power back to the junction on the hood,sometimes just resetting the breaker wont do the trick,it may be a wire at the hook-up open now,there may be a fuse protecting the unit itself for the fan control,but the lights are usually wired direct so re-check the incoming power first
