Question about Whirlwind Wall Hoods: Zephyr Ventilation Hood

1 Answer

Just installed a Zephyr Tamburo ventilation hood. Lights work, but low is high and high is low. Fan motor hums, but fan only turns if I manually spin it before turning on switch and then there is no variation in speed.

    110 volt

    I wondered if wiring was correct, but it looked pretty simple. I connected black to black, white to white and green to naked copper wire.

  • Alan Nov 15, 2009

    Sounds more complicated than it appeared. There was a line coming out of the unit with black, white and green. But it is perhaps used only with something manual calls a cable locking connector (whatever that is for).

    So I may have to take it apart find where to connect to motor and switch. Probably there is a wiring diagram somewhere inside hood.



  • Alan Nov 15, 2009

    It was new. It is late here so I think I will wait until tomorrow to take it apart and look for wiring instructions. You have been helpful. Thought I might have done something wrong.

    Roniecon was helpful. We have not fixed hood yet, but thanks to Roniecon, we have some idea where to begin.

    Ok,then you have got two wires crossed somewhere,

  • Ronny Bennett Sr.
    Ronny Bennett Sr. Nov 15, 2009

    Put the green to ground,and one of the input lines goes straight to the motor.The other one goes to the speed switch,and one will come off the speed switch to the motor. let me know if you get this.

  • Ronny Bennett Sr.
    Ronny Bennett Sr. Nov 15, 2009

    sounds right,but the configuration from there on is not right,either,black goes all the way to the motor,and the white should go to the switch,then from the switch,to the motor.or the colors can be the other way around,either way.

    Ronny Bennett Sr. Nov 15, 2009

So noisy even on low


Does the fan seem like it is spinning off balance. What exactly is making the noise, the fan or the motor. I will see if I can find an owner's manual. Please get back to me on my questions

I installed a new Broan QML30SS range hood and fan makes loud humming sound as it runs


An old elecricians joke says "do you know why it hums? It dosn't know the words" Al kidding aside ,have you checked to see how free the fan blade is? The should spin very freely. It kind of sounds to me like it may be having a hard time comming up to full speed. You may try some graphite lube on the motor. If I recall Broan has a lifetime garrentee on the motor. You might just want to repace it if I am correct.

need to get at the capacitor for the fan. Try spinning blower when it hums. If it runs then the cap is bad if not the motor.

Zephyr Milano hood fan and lights stop working. Power is on.


Hi ronio,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: After the power went out your Zephyr hood lights and fan don't work at all. There is a faint glow on the digital display but the fan and lights don't respond to pressing the control buttons.

First check the circuit breaker. If OK then check the transformer in the unit. It's next to the fan motor. If no power on the high side then you have a loose or broken connection. If you have no power on the low side the you have a bad transformer. If OK then you have a bad control board.

Feel free contact me again!

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

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

Zephyr ZMI-M90S stopped working


The company doesn't list such a part. Probably, you have a bad connection in the unit. With the power off, remove the motor housing. Find the connection box and fix up the connections.
