Question about Faber Cristal HC 598041 Kitchen Hood
Our Faber Cristal HC rangehood fan has stopped working. When I pull out the hood the light and fan normally automatically come on. The light works but all of a sudden the fan no longer works. Any ideas on where to start to check out the problem?
Sounds like a motor problem...but not necessarily. Cut power to the unit. Expose the motor assembly. Turn the fan by hand...if it is jammed or hard to turn...replace that motor. Not that? There is likely a motor connector. Get a test light at the hardware store. Disconnect the motor and then probe the wires coming to the connector from the power side (with the power on again) to see if the tester glows. Yes...bad motor. No, find the bad connection. It is possible that this unit uses a multi switch...if that's the case, there will be three wires coming out of it...One is power in...the others go to the light and the fan. Then, the switch will be the culprit. Hope this helps.
