Re: Qs3 performance ring band


You only need that ring if you dont have an exit. All it does is take away from its sucking capabilities. I do service calls for broan & Nutone

We have the part:

Why isn't my Rangemaster Hood blower turning when switched on?

Hi Ed
Being a range hood & subjected to cooking fats etc. It might be gummied up around the fan and just require cleaning!
But.... you said it was humming and there is a capacitor close by.
Then it's probably an induction motor thats not getting kick started by the Cap. While it's humming, use a finger (or stick) to push start in one direction or try other direction. If it spins up and stays going.... you've found the problem. The Cap is not kick starting in the right direction. Remove the Cap (with AC Disconnected) and check the values to get a similar replacement.

Good Luck

I have QS3 series range hood. Fans are not working though lights are okay. When I click the fan buttons it does turn green, with clicking sound however fan doesn't turn on. Please advice

Sometimes they can be cleaned and oiled and they will work again...
Cleaning the grease and dust with out ruining the motor is the tricky part...
Take the unit apart as much as possible...spray down the fan part with a degreaser or strong cleaner...let it soak and they spray it down with water to rinse it off...
Then work a few drops of light motor oil into the motor by proping up the fan so that the oil will run down the shaft and into the motor...

then get it running smoothly by working it by hand...

Put it all back together and it should work again...

Hood operates very loudly

Often the dirt and grease will build up on the fan/blower wheel and then some of it will come off throwing the wheel out of balance... this creates an intense vibration of of course a lot of noise...
Take the hood apart and clean everything really good and check the motor bearing to make sure they are not bad...(loose motor shaft in and out or up and down)...

Then you should be quiet again...

Install a Thermador UCV36 cook'n'vent

Hi schmidt_rich,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You took over as owner builder when your builder "took the $ and ran". You are installing kitchen cabs now and discovered the PVC vent pipe (which goes into the foundation and out the side of the house) is in the wrong place for the location of the downdraft unit and integral blower. The vent is actually under the electrical connection panel. You were told initially( 2 yrs ago when you bought the downdraft cook'n'vent) there could be no bends in the exhaust fan route or it would change the effectiveness. Does anyone know if it is ok to put a bend in the connection to the vent? Or do you need to redo your kitchen cabinets?

I can syphathise. I have had to deal with this same problem. I have found that one ell will not degrade the effectiveness enough to notice. If you need more then you may need to adjust cabinets.

Feel free contact me again!

Broan allure performance ring


Are you looking for the metal ring which goes around your blower wheel. If so, we do have it at Inventex. All it does is cut down the performance of the fan. You will also need carbon filters to absord the smell.
