Question about Viking VWH3048 Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Fan Switch I need to replace my fan switch but can't figure out how to access it. I have pulled off the knobs controlling the light and fan, do I now pry off the plate surrounding the switchs/knobs? If so, how does it attach back on?

    I was hoping there was another way. I actually have the VWH3648, a fairly large unit. There is tile grout abutting it which would probably chip off if the unit was removed. And, frankly, I still don't see how I would get to the switches upon removal of the unit. It is one solid piece of stainless steel, and I feel no cover up there.

    same problem here. Makes no sense to me that you have to take down the entire hood to service it. Anyone else out there now how to check the fan toggle switch?

You need to take the unit down to access the switchs. The unit should be mounted to the top of the cabinet by wood screws or nuts/bolts that you'll need to remove. Before starting any project having to do with appliances, always remember to turn off the power to that appliance by switching off the circuit breaker in your house panel. Once you have removed the screws, the unit will lower and you will see the cover that you'll need to remove and it will expose the switches. Goos luck

Have hampton bay add on remote control kit on patio ceiling fan. Battery died in the remote, so kid turned fan off with pull chain. replced battery, now cant get fan to work on any pull chain settings....


The pull switch in the fan may be broken in the off position. Luckily these are easy to replace. Purchase a new switch. Obtain a wire stripper and phillips screwdriver. Lower the light (if installed) or the blank by removing the screws. Disconnect light if installed. Unscrew nurled knob on fan switch and remove switch. Make note of where the wires go, I take a picture with my cell phone. Cut wires off as close to the old switch as you can. Strip about 1/4 to 3/8 inch of the insulation off the end with the wire stripper. Insert into the appropriate hole in the switch. Nothing to tighten to lock down here, it will hold it. Reinstall switch and light and test for proper operation.

I have 2 Hunter ceiling fans and the wall switch has 2 knobs which you push to click on or off.......after you click on...you can turn the knob and increase or decrease the fan speed. You can click on both...


Hello .. you should be able to find a replacement for your fan control at any building supply store, a home depot type store. Look or ask for a variable speed fan control. This is slightly different from a normal liight dimmer . You might also look for a replacement knob before replacing the whole switch, or matbe getting a replacement just to replace the knob ..

I need a pull chain DIMMER switch for my fan light. Only one set of wires supplies the fan and light. Surely SOMEBODY has a pull chain dimmer ??? Thanks. Bill


Bought three fans for the bedrooms, all hunters with pull chain dimmers. Less than one year and two of the three dimmers are shot. Can't find a replacement so I bypassed it. Remove light assembly and unplug 9pin connector. Remove black vented dimmer assembly by removing wire nuts and disconnecting the 2wire connector(black and white wires). Cut the 2wire connector off and save it in case you find a part someday. Wire nut black to black(hot) and white to white(neutral). You will disable the pull chain by wire nutting those two wires together.

2004 elantra heater control only operates at #4 setting


If # 4 is the highest fan setting it might be the resistor pack that controls the fan speeds.For each speed increase the fan switch takes a resistor out of the resistor loop The highest speed is a direct connection to the battery. The switch is usually located very close to the fan since it gets quite hot and needs to be cooled by the fan.It is also generaly accessible from under the hood,but not always.Sometimes it is under the dash Hope this helps.

Want to install Fan and light control from one switch.


'define control'

anyway, that all the lights work together makes it simpler

most fanlights, updated by homeowners replace a lamp only unit, with on/off provided at the switch, and cable pulls on the unit to change speed direction of the fan

my favorite is paired dimmer switches, giving control separately of light and fan speed, fan direction still changes on the pull switch, requires 3 wires in the switch box, (power and 2 switched lines), to the lamp connector and fan motor connector, any sparky can pull the extra line with fishtape along the existing cable run. easy peasey.
Really good electricians pull three wire to light circuits, when the house is built or reno-ed. but you know how oftern that is gonna happen, 3 wire costs 3c more per foot, if there is 3 wire in the switch box -your home and hosed

or just for speed/dimmer control a dimmer switch can replace the existing single switch. but you still have to pull the cords to start the fans

its easy, with the caveat that you may kill yourself, or someone else, or burn the house down, if you dont do it right

Lakewood 16" Pedestal Fan- Control Switch gone bad (probably)-


I have seen a number of oscillating fans where the push-pull knob just pulls off. It will require a serious pulling effort - straight up. Do Not use any tools. You may have to have a helper hold the fan while you pull the knob.

After the knob comes off, push the shaft back down with your finger to allow it to clear the housing.
