Question about Zephyr Pyramid ZPY-E30S Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

No suction My Zephyr Hood used to work OK, but never great. Now it has started actually blowing back out at particular area around the fans. The exhaust pipe is 6" rigid and the flapper at the exterior is wide open when the hood is running; closed when the unit is off. If you hold a piece of thread nead the fans, there is absolutly no suction, even when right next to the fans. My first thought was a blockage but because the exhaust flapper is right out straight, I'm wondering what else might be going on.

There is a set of blocks that are installed on the venting system to make the unit recirculate....use the manual to find them and make sure your not venting half outside and half into the kitchen.

How do I remove burned out light bulbs from zephyr range hood? What do I replace them with?


What model range hood do you have? To remove most of the bulbs from a Zephyr hood, wait for the bulb to cool after use. Then rotate the bulb counter-clockwise about 60 degrees (less than a quarter turn) and the bulb should drop down. If you have problems turning the bulb, try the glass suction cup that comes with the hood or a rubber/latex glove grip. Sometimes a rubber jar grip will also work.

The one way to find out your range hood bulb may be to remove one and look at the side/back. The bulbs are labeled. Otherwise, check your manual. Zephyr has the manuals for most of their ranges here: http://zephyronline.com/customer_support . Use the drop-down menu to select your model.

Different hoods use different bulbs. For AK6500, 6536, 6542 Cyclone hoods, purchase type: 4OR 14 mini flood light bulbs. For the AK2500, 2536 hoods, you need to purchase type GU 10 halogen bulbs. For the Anzio models, including the ZAN-E30AS, get a GU-10 50W halogen bulb.

I hope this helps.

Replace fan/light switch zephyr pyramid range hood


I am also looking for instructions for PLHV36W6CC.

The fan is on right now but the switch is sliding back and forth loosely.

I just downloaded the manual but that was no help.

If someone has a quick solution, that would be great.

Please email me at robert_attieh@yahoo.ca

I have stuck my hand up and fiddled around but besides just ripping it out, could use some help.

Thanks,

Robert

use a good 3 in 1 oil. Don't use WD-40 it will only clean it then dry out the bearing. the problem will be worse than when you started.

Light blub burnt out


The easiest way to remove the light bulb is to wear a rubber glove, use your palm to press against the bulb, and turn counter-clockwise.

The suction created by the rubber glove should allow you to remove the light bulb easily.

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!
