Whirlpool Hood - AKR852GY

Hi guys, great site. I have a Whirlpool hood - AKR852GY - which is 14 months old so just out of warranty.

Basically the hood has just stopped working, the bulb and fan/motor included. The fuse on the bulb has gone so I tried changing for a new bulb but no difference. I also tried changing the fuse in the plug, again no difference.

Any ideas what I could try next?

SOURCE: Indesit cooker hood.

some have fuses, some dont. i know that if you dont have the vent hood hooked up correct the heat can melt the wires on the inside. so make sure the vent is hooked up right.

the micro switches have a common hot/normally open&normally closed.The way we install the system is with contactors .Landing the line and load on the contactor lugs and powering the coils with the n/o or n/c side of the micro switch . exhaust turns on and make up air,all electrical and gas shuts off.

I have a 8 yr old Whirlpool microwave that will turn on but does

If it runs but will not heat you most likely have a bad magnetron. Check the owners manual some magnetrons had a nine year part warranty. If yours doesn't it may be more cost effective to purchase a new microwave.

Range hood

Take the old one out and go to your nearest appliance parts supplier. Radio shack may also be helpful.
if its somewhat new, it may be still covered under warranty. Depending on where you got it, they may be flexible on this.
