Pacific Range hood model AK600 motor shorted

Pacific Range hood model AK600 has stopped working- both light and exhaust fans. When the light was switched on, we heard a sudden flash like something getting shorted and it hasn't been working ever since.

SOURCE: Pacific range hood hass two and one green cord,

It doesn't matter as long as the green is to ground. If you were powering multiple units in series it would be different, but in your case it doesnt matter.

I'm not sure if it a regular home range hood but if it is. Check the price of a new one. A regular home range hood cost around $100.00 and a fan motor runs around the same. If it a commercial type is another story. If commercial Heritage Food Service Equipment will have the motor.

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.

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.

The fan in my has not stopped working in a few weeks now.what can I do to make it stop blowing air


test this steps and fix it. God bless you

1. No power to the range hood
Make sure there's power getting to the range hood. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket (unless the hood is hard wired) for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Fan switch
If your range hood only has a fan and no light or any other features, it won't start with a broken fan switch. Replace the switch if found defective.

3. Fan motor
If your range hood only has a fan and no light or any other features, it won't start with a broken fan motor. Replace the motor if found defective.

#23350303200 Kenmore Elite Range hood - Range hood exhaust motor slows down


You have 2 windings in the motor that create a magnetic field. A winding is simply a coil of wire an they do not touch. when applying the voltage (turning on the fan) the windings create the mag. field causing the rotor to turn, which then of course turns the fan blade. When these windings get weak it causes them to heat up due to the resistance in the circuit and you there for loose ur mag. field... Or if the rotor starts getting restricted it will also heat up the windings an cause the fan to stop.. Time for a new venta hood....

I have a 4 year old RM5200 hood over my stove. The motor is making a whining noise. It seems to soon for this to happen. It is loud and constant to the point where we don't want to use it. Is it time...


Range hood motors, bathroom exhaust fan motors all share the same thing. They become coated with grime inside the shaft of the rmotor due to their exhaust feature of sucking dust and grime over the motor, which is open. The only solution is to get access to the motor and clean the fan blades and squirt a little WD-40 down the shaft as that is where the noise comes from. The dirt and grime build up on the motor shaft, and eventually starts rubbing the bushing where the shaft rest and makes a noise. Yo must remove this from the shaft and allow a little play, and lubrication which the WD-40 will supply.

Range master 50000 exhaust fan stopped working


Extremely likely the fan motor.  get to it then , after removing fan blade,plug it in directly to a 110v  outlet ,just for a second to see if it works well( don;t touch it while prefoming this test,only the plug), or jumper out the switch(with electric disconnected) momentairly to see if the fan runs after turning the electric back on.

The extractor on my Baumatic fan stopped working. Thsi was shortly after the light bulbs blew which I replaced and they work OK. Any suggestions as to how i can resolve this?


Sounds like it was the main fan motor - that caused the lights to blow in the first place.

Isolate from supply, and get the fan motor checked out. If it is burnt out (inside) you will need a replacement.

Hope this helps.

BABT83.2AL Canopy Rangehood The fan/suction is not working. A slight straining noise is heard. The light is working as is the display panel.


These units have a history of fan failure due to inferior 220 volt Italian fan.

I have just had fan fail and retrofitted a ebmpapst blower fan model D2E146HT6702 which is readily available in Aus for around $120.

The fan speed control is by inverter variable output so you don't use all the speed select wires that this fan has. Connect the Red wire on the range hood to the Black on the motor (High speed winding) and the Black on the range hood to the Blue on the motor (Neutral) and the earth to the earth (Green).

Disconnect and toss the cap in the white enclosure under the PC board enclosure (the new fan has the cap on board). Don't know how easy to fit in the range hood as mine is in an acoustic fan housing in the roof (makes it wisper quiet when running)
