Smell of neighbours cooking comes through hood fan! HELP!

We live in a semi-detached home and we often smell our neighbours cooking come through our hood fan. We have taped the flu and have not used our fan and we still smell their cooking. Our damper is not stuck. Could you please help us!

It appears to me that each hood has a fan discharging air and odours into a common duct.
The only solution to me is to have a main exhaust fan at the very end of the duct continually sucking the air out of the duct.This way it will not allow the individual hood fans to pressurise the main duct,forcing the air to esape through the path of least resistance,which happens to be the neighboars hood.

It may be that such a fan is existent but switched off due to malfunction,or switched off for running costs reasons.

Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

Thermador CVS36R Cook'n'vent vent won't go down and fan stopped workin


You probably will find that the vent is clogged with grease. A switch device works with the vent so the fan operates only when the vent is open and does not operate when the vent is closed. Things should get back to normal after a thorough cleaning unless the fan is defective and won't operate at all.

Dripping kitchen exhaust fans


It sounds like there is a restriction in the vent or the hood is to low. It should be at least 18" above the cooking surface.

Problem with cooker hood


Filters clean? Fan running? No clogs in the exhaust?

On the one hand, you want the disagreeable stuff out of the kitchen - on the other hand, you want to keep your heated or cooled home air to stay inside.

Does it have a membrane type touchpad?

Just went through that. The touchpad was bad. Some numbers and functions would work - others wouldn't. Ended up replacing the touchpad. It cost about $31.00, including shipping.

Most touchpads attach with two side adhesive. The complication in the replacement usually involves the ribbon cable that connects the touchpad to the microwave control module. I had to disassemble the door to detach and reattach this cable.

Vibrating Noise and Electrical Smell


The noise and smell usually come from a bad transformer. If the magnetron has burned out usually the transformer will need to be replaced as well. The transformer is right behind the grille on the right hand side.

Over the range microwave oven


The magnetron may not be cooling properly and the overheat is what is causing the shut down. The internal cooling fan will need to be checked for proper operation.
