Question about Miscellaneous

Open Question

Looking for help ! The fan on my Zephyr Venezia Stovehood Fan Model ZVE-E30AS has stopped working.

I has 6 speeds up to 750 CFM. Lights work fine. It is over 10 years old. I have previously torn it down to change bearings twice over the years so I am quite familiar with the guts of it. This has me stumped a bit. Unfortunately, I cannot locate the wiring diagram nor a repair manual. I am trying to find which electrical component is bad. The issue starting happening after a neighborhood power glitch which also blew out my Verizon FIOS requiring a new distribution box. When you push the fan button there is no noise at all, no hum, nothing. I did a complete teardown, used jumpers, and this is what I determined: 1. Switch continuity verified OK 2. Circuit board output to the fan motor with motor unconnected is OK at 120v. 3. Circuit board output to the fan motor with motor connected is NG at 0v. 4. Starter capacitor 25 uF tested OK on meter, spike on meter repeatedly as you switch leads. I do not have the right meter to test the uF tolerances. The cap was physically perfect with no bulges, etc. 5. Hooked up the fan motor direct to 120v with the starter cap in place and the fan ran perfectly. Although, it runs only at the highest speed which I recognize from the sound. 6. I suspect something on the circuit board is sensing something not right with the motor/cap and therefore shuts the voltage off to the motor. What do you guys think ?

SOURCE: Wiring the replacement 3 speed switch (fan motor)

I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:

L White
1 Yellow
2 Blue
3 Black

The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.

You may find the parts that you need at the following web site...http://www.eceilingfans.com/
They have all of the capacitors there. All you need are the number of wires and the capacitor micro-farad ratings.

Zephyr Milano hood fan and lights stop working. Power is on.


Hi ronio,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: After the power went out your Zephyr hood lights and fan don't work at all. There is a faint glow on the digital display but the fan and lights don't respond to pressing the control buttons.

First check the circuit breaker. If OK then check the transformer in the unit. It's next to the fan motor. If no power on the high side then you have a loose or broken connection. If you have no power on the low side the you have a bad transformer. If OK then you have a bad control board.

Feel free contact me again!

Speed control on fan


It means that the filters on the hood need to be cleaned. You simply pop them out and can wash them in the dishwasher. Once clean, dry and replaced, you hold down the fan speed button (the second button from the left or " - " minus for more than five seconds.) When you first hit the button the A will appear, hold the button when the letter disappears, the timer has been reset until time for the next cleaning. The microprocessor in the system will flash every 30 hours of operation.

Flashing "A"


Press and hold the (-) button with the unit off untill the (A) clears. It's a 30 hour timer to remind you to clean the filter
