Question about Broan-NuTone Broan Range Hood Accessory

1 Answer

Replace Broan Model K260A Range Hood Light Switch Slider Assembly

The light switch slider on the switch assembly (part B06105519) the controls the lights, blower on/off and blower speed broke and we can no longer turn the hood lights on/off.

We purchased another complete slider assembly from Broan (no electrical parts involved) and we're not sure how to install it into the hood. It seems like the old slider assembly should just pop out and we should be able to snap the new assembly in its place.

I really don't want to start taking the hood apart if I don't have to.

Hi if the new part has no screw holes or place for clip and it is only push in connector ie you dont need to solder the wires to it then it will just pull out use a small screw driver under the edge and gently pry free you cant damage it anymore than it is anyway can you.
Also on the side of the new switch if their is no groove cut into it for a push on clip to hold it in place then it will just pull out and push the new one in.

Best (Broan) K260A - I tried to change the bulb as well....completely inaccessible to change with hands (bulb is set deeper in hood, not even flush) tried gloves, rubber jar opener but cannot get access to...

The lamp holder assembly snaps into a hole in the range hood with spring clips. To remove the light bulbs, you simply push and turn, like older, bayonet style automotive turn signal bulbs. It seems you have broken your lamp holder assembly. Just break the trim ring so it can be removed, or you can try to take it out reverse polish style by releasing the spring clips from the middle inwards. Once the trim ring is loose, you can extract the body of the lamp holder through the hole... the wires will be barely long enough to stick out the hole if you are lucky. If you are crafty, you may fashion a repair on the separated lamp socket assembly. If not, your replacement part number is SV16569. just call nutone-broan at 800-558-1711 and they will be glad to ship you a new lamp shell socket trim assembly.

  2. On tilt columns:

I have a Broan 2736 Eclipse downdraft blower system. When I push the button the downdraft rises but then immediately goes back down

Gail was spot on. That worked for me until the unit would go up and/or down on its own. The problem was traced to the double microswitch called the 'Lower Switch Bracket Assembly' ($24. thru Lowes ). To replace these switches is not for the faint of heart as it is deep within the assembly. A good weekend mechanic can look at the exploded parts diagram and see what / where. Found grease residue on- and slightly within- the microswitchs due to Broan not properly design shielding and protecting these critical switches from grease. Did not find any ghosts, however.

My Range Hood (Best by Broan K260A) is just two years old in a new house. WHen I use it, fat & grease drip down from the left and right edges against the wall. Can someone tell the problem?

grease accumulation, remove the fours screws on the lower plate, to remove excess grease. further you can unscrew the bolt that are holding the assembly and unplug the unit. after remove fans with allen key and remove motor , clean and reassemble , make shure to put motor the right back the same way. reassemble the same way , problem should be solve for at least 7 years depending on cooking.

WS3 Broan Allure Range Hood Premier 36 inch

Hi shealy,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: This hood worked fine until a light bulb blew out. Put in a new light bulb, but the lights will not turn off. Is the light switch bad or is there a problem with the control panel? The fan still works fine but the lights will not turn off or adjust dim or bright.

You're on the right track. The light control switch needs replacing. You might try utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If you have the tools and ability just remember to turn off the electric first.

Feel free contact me again!

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.
