Question about Broan-NuTone Allure II QS230SS Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Light won't shut off

A bulb blew, and after that the light was stuck on it's brightest setting and won't shut off.

I opened up the rangehood (which is actually the same unit marketed by Sears/Kenmore) and banged around the various relays with a screwdriver (hoping for dumb luck), to no effect. The controler is $150, which almost makes it as cheap to buy a whole new unit. Is there a way to replace individual parts on the controller? Is it, in fact, the controller and not one of the transformers (that seems like a long shot).

Westinghouse range hood wrf900cs light blew, light globes replaced but lights still not working

I had the same problem. An audible pop and the lights stopped. Fans still works, light bulb filaments appear intact.
My problem was that a short piece of the copper on the printed circuit board, inside the switch housing, had vaporized as if it were a fuse. I soldered a bridge of copper wire across the small 5mm gap and all was working again.
Access the switch compartment by removing the filters, undo a couple of retaining screws to remove switch unit.
Make sure the electricity to the unit is Off/unplugged before proceeding!!!
Switch unit cover has 4 screws holding it on. Once inside the unit, trace the wire (mine was grey colour) from the light switch to the small printed circuit board. The copper printed circuit link to the connector had sign of burning, just gooone!
Solder a bridge of copper wire across the gap and reassemble switch unit to test.

I turned the lights on the high setting for a couple of hours, and the bulb just blew out. I then touched the top of the hood and it was very hot. Should a bulb blow out for no reason? I am worried that...

Check the documentation and make sure the wattage on the light bulb does not exceed what is recommended. For instance: Mine says no more than 75 watts incandescent light bulb.

I need to find out the light bulbs relacements for a zephyr rangehood, model venezia

Check out the zephyr Site. The halogen bulbs they use are very unique. Have two clients that have Zephyr hoods and took me a while to locate replacement bulbs. Could not find them at the local lighting stores nor hardware stores. I believe it is a 35 watt halogen (sort of an MR-16 size) with an entended base.

GE Deluxe 30 Range Hood ---can't find a 2 way bulb (Light/night light)???

The current Convertible Deluxe rangehood from GE doesn't support a two-way (light/night light bulb). You can use an incandescent light with an A15 type (60 watts or less) or a compact fluorescent (A17 or T2) with an ordinary screw base that draws no more than 13 watts. Some models can only use the incandescent light (RN328, JN327, JV338). The recommended compact fluorescents are available from (product codes: 85383 or 47486). Check you manual or for a pdf of your manual.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Problem changing halogen bulbs on perla rangehood

The more I worked with it, the more I discovered that the real problem was that a screw was not all the way screwed in and it was preventing the panel from sliding. Another problem I may have is finding the glass covered halogen bulb.

WS3 Broan Allure Range Hood Premier 36 inch

Hi shealy,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: This hood worked fine until a light bulb blew out. Put in a new light bulb, but the lights will not turn off. Is the light switch bad or is there a problem with the control panel? The fan still works fine but the lights will not turn off or adjust dim or bright.

You're on the right track. The light control switch needs replacing. You might try utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If you have the tools and ability just remember to turn off the electric first.

Feel free contact me again!

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.
