Re: F90 st.steel hood fan problem

Kerry, does it make any difference if you hold that button or not? If so, the switch set could be bad. Any odd noise from the motor? The motor might be bad. Power off. Then, remove the filter and try to turn the motor by hand. If it turns hard, it's the motor. Easy, then replace the switch. Check the electrical connections to the unit. There should be a box somewhere inside the housing. It is possible that wires have come loose. Again, do this part with the power off.

Hood lights not working

Faulty switch for the lights? Measure the voltage in the lamp sockets - if you don;t know how, find someone with electrical experience to check it out.

I installed a new Broan QML30SS range hood and fan makes loud humming sound as it runs

An old elecricians joke says "do you know why it hums? It dosn't know the words" Al kidding aside ,have you checked to see how free the fan blade is? The should spin very freely. It kind of sounds to me like it may be having a hard time comming up to full speed. You may try some graphite lube on the motor. If I recall Broan has a lifetime garrentee on the motor. You might just want to repace it if I am correct.

KWCU405SSS fan motor high speed only

Agreed! It totally works. Our fan and lights were stuck on high. Flipped the hood circuit breaker off for 30 seconds then back on again and all controls are working normally again. Thanks!

Our Kitchenaid Range Hood model KWCU405SSS has a code "C" in the display. What does that mean?

I just did this and it works.

1.) Make sure to turn off both the fan and the lights. If you skip this step the next step won't work.

2.) Press and hold the + button for 4 seconds until the "C" disappears.

Repeat in another 100hrs of use.

Hi. Last Friday we had a new Kenmore stainless steel range hood installed along with a new range. Yesterday the range hood fan and lights would not work. The fan does not come on at any speed. The lights...

Some installers plug the fan/light into an outlet in the cupboard above. Check to see if that has power. Some of the outlets are behind a panel in the cabinet above and you have to remove the screws. I have seen the plugs laying in the cabinet just like they had never been plugged in. Yours obviously was plugged in but maybe fell out. If the fan/light is hard wired than you should make sure the power is turned off at the breaker box and then check the wiring inside the box to make sure it is wire nutted together and is holding. I would also check that the breaker for the fan/light is still putting out power. These last two might be a little tricky if you have never tried them. The breakers sometimes go bad but look like they are set. If the whole hood fan is not getting power it is probably time for an electrician or the people who installed to come back.

Lights won't turn off - everything else works fine

I have a NuTone Allure WS2 range hood. The fan works fine, so does the control board seem ok, but the lights work only intermittently. NuTone tech support said to replace the control board, which I suspect is its kneejerk response. The board costs almost $200--and for two lights???

My problem is similar to the one whose lights work, fan doesn't, but I have a feeling my problem is different.I hope simpler.

Thanks in advance for help (light) on the problem anyone can offer.

Broan kitchen hood - frenetic chimney

It can be 2 things.

1. The motor that elevates the fan is turning a tad to much. Just by stepping on the floor near it could cause it to go up/down constantly.
2.Or what i had seen was the wires that go to the switch dont have enough slack, and are just making contact to the switch causing it to think somone is pushing the button constantly.

There is way too many steps involved to type out.
