Re: broan allure II range hood

Did you ever find out what blew the fuse originally? Do the lights have a dimmer feature on them? If so, the reostsat may be bad, or the switch that controls the light intensity, 1,2,3. ect. Something caused the fuse to blow, maybe a wire on the bulb or switch somewhere.

Broan Allure range hood fan will not turn off, no matter which button is pushed.

The fan switch contacts are probably welded together or the actuator mechanism is broken. Your best bet is to replace the fan switch, probably with a similar type having a higher current rating so the new one won't also be susceptible to contact welding. If you have an industrial electrical supply dealer or electronic surplus parts store in your area, those would be good places to look for a replacement.

Fan turns on and off since turning hood light on a few days ago

If it is a Broan, there is a delay button that was also depressed. It will turn the fans off after a few minutes. If not, then you're shorted out either in the control panel or the wiring in the range hood.

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.

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.

Random fan speeds and light levels???

I have the same issue. Have to reset the breaker to make it stop. Bet it is a bad controller (design fault).

I called Broan technical support. They said that they had heard of this issue before, but that there was no recall. I suggested that it was a frequent enough problem for it to come up 3 times in 12 mo. on one website. She was underimpressed with this statistic and said that they sell millions of them. She would not disclose the name of their supplier so that I could get some information on the actual controller unit. She did not seemed as pained as I was by having to part with $130 for a new controller.
