Re: Fans do not work properly

If the hood fan is not working at all, it would be due to a bad connection or other problem on the control panel (circuit board) or an open thermal or winding in the hood fan motor.

If you or a friend want to troublesoot this, I can give you some tips.

Is hertz the same as amps?

No, hertz (Hz) is the name for "cycles per second". Normal AC power (in the USA) is 60 hertz or 60 cycles per second. 1 kiloherz (KHz) = 1000 cycles per second. 1 megahertz (MHz) = 1,000,000 cycles per second. Amps is the measurement of current flowing through a device or circuit. a 100 watt light bulb pulls about 0.9 amps. A toaster or microwave oven pulls about 15 amps.

My microwave intermittently blows the downstairs sockets

If it is tripping the breaker when you just close the door, I think it might be one of the door switches that the latch activates. There are usually 3 switches behind the latch holes in the microwave. One is a safety monitor switch that is suppose to blow the internal fuse if the microwave is started and the door is not closed properly. It should blow the micro fuse before the house breaker unless you have a weak house breaker. It will do the same thing if start is pressed and it senses a problem with the door. You say the problem is intermittent so I assume you do get it to work at times so I'm guessing most of the microwave is OK. I'm pretty sure you have a door switch problem--- either out of adjustment ---or 1 of them going bad.

We have a Kenmore builin icrowave with exhaust hood over the range. The exhaust fan appears to recirculate the air into the kitchen and not sending it out. This causes the cooking smell to remain inside...

some fans have a charcoal filter that needs replacing others are supposed to be vented out side by the roof or out the wall to see if the vent is going outside you will have to unmount the unit tak it down and check and see if it is conected to a duct in the celing or through the wall hope this helps

Maytag mmv5000bdw Touch panel works intermittently The panel will not respond to the touch. Work around include: 1. closing the microwave door hard and trying again. 2. unplugging the microwave and trying...

If nothing works, it sounds like you didn't get the cable inserted properly. It should fit into a connector which carries signals to the microwave's control components. These connectors usually pullup, you insert the cable, and push the connector back down.
