Light and fan are two separate functions in your hood. The fan gets very greasy from the cooking. The grease doesn't act as a lubricant but as dirt. Remove the fan from the unit and check to see if the shaft is wiggling,or if it is seized. At this point you may need to replace motor. If it turns somewhat put a few drops of oil at the shaft, both ends if possible, and spin the fan by hand until it's loose. Replace back into hood and see what happens. Many times the bearings in these fans go dry and will not spin. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.
FAN AND LIGHT DOES NOT WORK my
zephyr typhoon stopped working. Neither light not the fan come up. I am
sure there is power going into the unit. I turned on the light one day
, the light cam on and suddenly went away. From then even the fan
stopped working. any information on what happened is appreciated.
replace whole unit thats roughly what the whole unit costs 157.00 just a little secret there they dont tell you cause they mark up the prices i worked for the company that sold and installed this equipment you also remember tax
NASCAR...I'm thinking more like the switch. If you can, with the power off gain access to the switch wiring. find the lead that goes to the power and the motor. Connect them directly (you might need a paper clip). Tape it all up securely and fire up the power. If it works...you will know about the switch...if not, you might look at the motor. By the way...check that motor rotation...it should turn easily when you give it a spin. Motors of the type used in fans generally don't degrade in performance unless they get gummed up with kitchen grease. Clean the grease off with WD 40.
The Problem is the wiring. Take the 2 screws retaining the metal plaque off underneath the filters. You will see the wires leaving the motor going into a "molex" plastic connector which connects two another set of wires going to the control board. Check to see if the wiring colors match from side to side of plastic connector. Ive only seen it happen once but it was exactly that. I do service calls for broan & Nutone
