SOURCE: Rangehood lights not working
I have a Fabyka Range Hood and know three other people who have had this exact problem (i.e both lights go out simulatneously but fan works fine). In my case I was able to pin it down to the transformer used by the halogen lights. This is an electronic transformer so it is less tolerant of power surges and such.
In the case of Fabyka the transformer is a black box connected to the inside of the hood with sticky tape with a black and white wire and two red wires. It is only used for the lights.
It is connected to the AC power via a black and white wire. you can disconnect this and us an LED power tester (about $2-$5 at most hardware stores) and see if you have power when you hit the switch.
In my case it is a 70W 120v to 12v halogen transformer. You can by a replacement off Amazon for about $12 including shipping or you can by a new one from Fabyka for about $30. I would suggest getting a slightly higher wattage transformer (I bought a 105watt for a dollar more).
You will need to disconnect the power before replacing but it is an easy fix.
1. Disconnect the AC power connector (black and white wires.)
2. The red wires coming out are the 12volt lines. If there is a connector, you can disconnect this, if not, you may need to cut these off.
3. Pull the tranformer off the back of the inside of the hood.
4. Cut the connectors off the old transformer. (Unless you buy Fabyka's.)
5. Connect them to the new transformer using wire connectors or crimps. (Make sure you connect black to black, white to white, and red to red.)
6. Make sure you have no exposed wires.
7. Connect to the corresponding connectors inside the hood. Connect the AC connector last.
8. Verify that the lights work properly.
9. Use sticky tape (or Gorilla tape) to attach the connector to the inside of the hood.
10. Enjoy the light.

Remove the filters and see if you can see the fan blade. Try turning the fan blade by hand. If its jammed up or tight, you may need a new motor. If it spins freely, turn on the rangehood and give the fan blade a spin . BE CAREFULL when doing this, if the motor starts up and runs properly after spinning it, it could be the start capacitor has failed. If it still wont run or if the fan is tight, you may need a new motor. Spare Parts should be available. You will have to trawl the internet looking for Baumatic parts suppliers in your area.

Testimonial: "thank you Steve, actually the fan started when i turned on the rangehood switch without I have to start it manually. But I don't think it is sucking as previously, very very weak, and when I change the no of fan to 1 (smallest) the fan stopped. When the no of fan to 6 (highest), the fan run but it's not strong. Appreciate any advise.. thanks again"
