Question about Jenn-Air JXT8136ADS Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

The lights dont turn off anymore

The other night we noticed one of the lights looked dim, and 20mins later it popped.
after that, the lights just stay on. The fan switch still works, but the light switch doesnt.
its a JXT8136ADS range hood that we have had for just about two years.
i think its the control board, but i havent had much luck in finding a new one.
anyone else experience this? or know where i can order a new board?

thanks for your help

    We have the same issue. I just took the unit apart and I'm betting the problems lies with the control board where you push the buttons. I was hoping to get it out and get a part number but I can't get it out. Did you ever figure this out?

    I have the exact same problem. First time this happened it was fixed by warranty. Changed display board (button board). Worked great for another year and now it has gone again. This is obviously a flaw in the part.

    One of the lights goes out and then the remaining three cannot be switched off. Changed the light bulb and now all four work fine but the light button is dead. This is very poor for an expensive hood.

    I have the same problem. One bulb blew and now the light button no longer functions.

We have a Nissan maxima 1998, we have had mechanics fix out tail and brake lights 4 times...still a month later with the same issue. The lights stay on,and only the middle brake works when you press it...

Check the earth wire from the body to the battery or to the motor to the battery. It appears that an earth is not working so the current is seeking a return through other lights hence they stop working.

My headlights on my sunfire go off while driving

Right now, I'm thinking the head lamp switch assembly has a problem? See the wire color in the top of head lamp, that is voltage, fuse protected, hot all the time. When problem is ongoing, you could use a test lite, check for voltage at fuse circuit?
The headlamp switch assembly is located on headlamp ground circuit. There could be a wiring problem, somewhere. I can only help with testing.

2009 lacrosse...compass, clock and milage lights sometimes stay real dim and then later pop up to normal brightness so I can read them...what goes ?

Starting car in garage turns on headlights which makes believe it is dark out and therefore dims dash lights. When car is out of garage it switches to running lights which allow dash lights to get brighter. I guess I should have figured that !!!
