Question about Fantech Range Hoods
The lights go off after a few minutes, the fan works fine, im thinking its the trandformer or the switch module? any hints?
SOURCE: Broan Allure II
my range hood lights would only work on highest setting. nothing on low or medium setting. fan working fine. I tripped the breaker off then on again at the electrical panel and behold, everything works perfectly fine now. don't know why it worked but it did!

If you're getting 120V at the lampholders, yet it's not lighting lamps that still work perfectly well in other fittings, two possibilitiesspring to mind.
One is that the cap on the bulbs isn't quite compatible with the fitting. Assuming they're some variant of Edison Screw, make sure that the centre terminal in the lampholder is sticking out far enough to touch the terminal on the bulb. Also check whether the lampholder achieves it's outer connection just with a small tab, rather than with the whole of the threaded ring. If so, make sure that this is going to touch the appropriate part of the bulb.
The other possibility is that you've got a high resistance connection somewhere - not enough of an open circuit to drop the 120 V when feeding the Megohm load presented by a meter, but more than enough to kill the supply when you have a lamp load. Only way to chase this is to use the meter on ohms range to bell out all the wiring between the lampholders and bits of the system which do work properly.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your problem is: Fan works but lights will not. switched bulbs and still lights not working.
You are dealing with a bad light switch. If you have the tools and the talent go for it.

Hi Mertl, I sure hope you found the solution since, but I am posting the answer for other people like me (and you) who need to find it !
The service manual says:
To replace the fuse:
1. Disconnect power at service entrance.
2. Remove filters, bottom panel, light wire harness, and air chute.
The fuse is actually right behind the fan controls, so to access it you need to disassemble everything that's in the way.
BTW, for anyone wondering if it's the fuse that's faulty, here's a clue:
If the fuse has opened (blown), the green fan-level indicators
will operate properly when the fan buttons/switches are pressed
- but the fan and lights will not turn on.
The fuse is a 5 x 20 mm, 10 Amp, Fast-Acting, 125V (min.).
Good luck all !

The Black 120vac Line In wire goes into "L". The Black wire goes into "2". The Red Wire goes into "3". When you install the switch, the Red and Black wires will be on top of the switch.
