Lights & Fan Don't Turn On

The light and fan will only function when the sliding hood has been pulled out about 2". Any other location and nothing will work. I figured it was the microswitches in the sliding track. Nope that didn't do it. I am now leaning to replacing the electronic switch membrane. Anyone have any experience with this? Thank you.

SOURCE: Fan runs continually

Could be. Cut off the power first. Remove the fan box cover and discover the switch location. If you have a continuity tester, you should be able to test the switch. Sometimes, they even jam with cooking grease. If in doubt, replace it.

High and Medium don't work, only low

Check your capacitors to see if they're bad. That's the black box near the pull chain switch with wires going to the switch. If bad call 1-888-830-1326 Hunter parts.
2 wire part # 74132-01-000 ( probably not this one)
Other capacitor part # 74133-05-000 (probably this one)

This is a small, lightweight, durable savings of energy that goes into a variety of colors. It connects to a device with two metal terminals of the connector is similar to a power cord. This can affect a beautiful, but can also be irritating.

I have a hunter ceiling fan model 23898 which has a dimmer switch built in one day a light bulb blew out on it and now we cannot turn off the lights with the switch the only way is to loosen the bulbs in...

Has anyone found a solution for this problem? I have tried a bulb in each light socket and attempted to use the pull/dimmer switch that is on the fan itself. The lights no longer dim nor turn off. I have unscrewed all of the bulbs and tried each bulb in each socket one at a time and still nothing. I have also taken the pull switch out of a different hunter fan to put into this one, hoping that atleast the lights would turn on and off. Still the lights won't turn off using the pull switch. I am out of ideas.

Nissan Quest 96 Engine running hot

In the fuse/relay box under the hood in front of the battery are 3 fan relays. 1 for low speed, and 2 for high speed. 1 of high speed is back up. check the relays first.
  • Key OFF.
  • Check the 10A RELAYS fuse located in the interior fuse junction panel and the 65A RAD FAN fuse located in the main fuse junction panel. (engine compartment)
pLease rate as fixya if this helps. good luck

Range master 50000 exhaust fan stopped working

Extremely likely the fan motor.  get to it then , after removing fan blade,plug it in directly to a 110v  outlet ,just for a second to see if it works well( don;t touch it while prefoming this test,only the plug), or jumper out the switch(with electric disconnected) momentairly to see if the fan runs after turning the electric back on.

New fan not working but lights work

There is less than 120v getting to the fan. Its possible that the lights will turn on etc. Take an extension cord and plug it in another plug and grab both power wires from the fan and stick them in other end of extension and I do service calls for broan & Nutone

try it out. Im sure your not getting 120v completelty.

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 II

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.
