Blower fan operation

When I push the button the fan raises but the blower does not activate. This problem happened all of a sudden since it worked Christmas. Where do I start to look?

Thanks, Gary

Re: blower fan operation

I would order a new Controller Board. Depending on the exact version, it could be a problem with a relay, or a triac on the board, that are meant to power up the motor.

PK2229 blower stop working

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.

Unit will sometimes not turn on

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 will know about the switch...if not, you might look at the motor. By the way...check that motor 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
