Question about Kenmore 52153 Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Hi. Last Friday we had a new Kenmore stainless steel range hood installed along with a new range. Yesterday the range hood fan and lights would not work. The fan does not come on at any speed. The lights do not come on at any level. Even the "green " light indicators do not work. All of these had worked ok in prior days. I checked the breaker box and everything was ok there so power should be getting to the hood. The installers did not leave a troubleshooting guide. What else can I do now to check out other things? Thanks.

Some installers plug the fan/light into an outlet in the cupboard above. Check to see if that has power. Some of the outlets are behind a panel in the cabinet above and you have to remove the screws. I have seen the plugs laying in the cabinet just like they had never been plugged in. Yours obviously was plugged in but maybe fell out. If the fan/light is hard wired than you should make sure the power is turned off at the breaker box and then check the wiring inside the box to make sure it is wire nutted together and is holding. I would also check that the breaker for the fan/light is still putting out power. These last two might be a little tricky if you have never tried them. The breakers sometimes go bad but look like they are set. If the whole hood fan is not getting power it is probably time for an electrician or the people who installed to come back.

Fan is not working but makes a humming noise at lower speeds and clanking noise at highest speed. When last working there was the clanking noise when I turned off the fan. Please help.


Then turn it off immediately just to be safe that nothing will be broken, can you see the interior? Is there anything broken or loose that might cause the noize? If yes remove.
If not try to clean it with a little cloth or anything, maybe it is too dusty.

Put new bulb in baumatic kichen hood turned it on, instantly made a noise like it tripped out, fan and lights now don't work, can not find fuse?


It was probably a defective bulb that tripped a circuit breaker in your house panel. Check the breakers and replace the bulb.

Nutone range hood fan motor quit


You can remove it and bench test it by applying 120 volts to the fan leads. Do you know how to do this -- it can be dangerous if not done properly.

You can also use a voltmeter to measure resistance and check continuity of the motor coils.
