Fan Not Working

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?

Re: Fan Not Working

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.

Medium Fan Speed not working

Switch is probably faulty, or wire / connection to switch. If switch and wiring test ok trace wire from that button back to wherever it goes and look there for fault.

Fan stopped working on our Bosch rangehood (Type D-FX41-8 or E-Nr. DKE935AAU). Lights working but the fan only inhibits a humming sound.

hi ;
the fan motor needs repair , the cause of humming is the vibration of induction on AC current in the motor.
if the motor stopped means it has faulty shafting and bushing, or maybe the starting capacitor needs a replacement, don't turn it on or use it to prevent burning of induction wire,
also it needs a qualified technician to repair ,
