SOURCE: Rangehood lights not working

I have a Fabyka Range Hood and know three other people who have had this exact problem (i.e both lights go out simulatneously but fan works fine). In my case I was able to pin it down to the transformer used by the halogen lights. This is an electronic transformer so it is less tolerant of power surges and such.

In the case of Fabyka the transformer is a black box connected to the inside of the hood with sticky tape with a black and white wire and two red wires. It is only used for the lights.

It is connected to the AC power via a black and white wire. you can disconnect this and us an LED power tester (about $2-$5 at most hardware stores) and see if you have power when you hit the switch.

In my case it is a 70W 120v to 12v halogen transformer. You can by a replacement off Amazon for about $12 including shipping or you can by a new one from Fabyka for about $30. I would suggest getting a slightly higher wattage transformer (I bought a 105watt for a dollar more).

You will need to disconnect the power before replacing but it is an easy fix.

1. Disconnect the AC power connector (black and white wires.)
2. The red wires coming out are the 12volt lines. If there is a connector, you can disconnect this, if not, you may need to cut these off.
3. Pull the tranformer off the back of the inside of the hood.
4. Cut the connectors off the old transformer. (Unless you buy Fabyka's.)
5. Connect them to the new transformer using wire connectors or crimps. (Make sure you connect black to black, white to white, and red to red.)
6. Make sure you have no exposed wires.
7. Connect to the corresponding connectors inside the hood. Connect the AC connector last.
8. Verify that the lights work properly.
9. Use sticky tape (or Gorilla tape) to attach the connector to the inside of the hood.
10. Enjoy the light.

SOURCE: why baumatic rangehood BABT83.2AL stop working

Remove the filters and see if you can see the fan blade. Try turning the fan blade by hand. If its jammed up or tight, you may need a new motor. If it spins freely, turn on the rangehood and give the fan blade a spin . BE CAREFULL when doing this, if the motor starts up and runs properly after spinning it, it could be the start capacitor has failed. If it still wont run or if the fan is tight, you may need a new motor. Spare Parts should be available. You will have to trawl the internet looking for Baumatic parts suppliers in your area.

Testimonial: "thank you Steve, actually the fan started when i turned on the rangehood switch without I have to start it manually. But I don't think it is sucking as previously, very very weak, and when I change the no of fan to 1 (smallest) the fan stopped. When the no of fan to 6 (highest), the fan run but it's not strong. Appreciate any advise.. thanks again"

GE Spacemaker microwave makes groaning sound when start button is pressed for a second or two then blows the internal fuse. After replacing the fuse everything seemed to work, lights, exhaust fan, cl


Could be a lot of things but most probably a shorted high voltage diode assembly. If not that then the magaetron or capactors. Remember be careful there are high voltages even when the oven is unpluged. The capactors are usually charged and must be discharged. If you don't know what yor doing then time to get a qualfied tech.

Good luck

follow this steps with VOM 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.

Model is GE JVM1430BD002. Microwave works but range fan and lights do not. Unit "popped" when fan was turned on one time and hasn't worked since. Is there a fuse or breaker for the range hood functions?


Yes - there is an internal "special" in-line fuse. Most likely it is the fan that has caused it. Clean the fan with switch-cleaner spray and make sure it is smooth running. Replace special fuse with identical version.
Check lights before operation.
Replace all covers before test.

Electronic Control Not Working


The electronic controller is faulty. You will have to contact the supplier where you purchased the rangehood from to find out who the warranty agents are for that make & model.
