Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a brand new Luxair cooker hood but when wired up the lights are on and dim. everything else works fine it's just that I cannot turn the lights off. The switches light up and even the light switch works and makes the two lights bright. When off the transformer makes a low humming noise but I would have thought there would be no power at all to the transformer. Suggestions please ?

SOURCE: New fan not working but lights work

There is less than 120v getting to the fan. Its possible that the lights will turn on etc. Take an extension cord and plug it in another plug and grab both power wires from the fan and stick them in other end of extension and I do service calls for broan & Nutone

Jean-Marc
try it out. Im sure your not getting 120v completelty.

Hi shealy,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: This hood worked fine until a light bulb blew out. Put in a new light bulb, but the lights will not turn off. Is the light switch bad or is there a problem with the control panel? The fan still works fine but the lights will not turn off or adjust dim or bright.

You're on the right track. The light control switch needs replacing. You might try utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If you have the tools and ability just remember to turn off the electric first.

SOURCE: baumatic hood bt82.1 lamps blown..

Hi johnnyi6,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: had a crackling noise then pop..looks like transformer has blown,replaced
but still no lights ..fan o.k...don't appear to be getting any power to transformer via switch?...how do you get push button switch out?...
bypassed light switch and lights o.k with new transformer..any ideas..

Yes, I agree, the switch went bad. It snaps in so you will break it during removal. I recomend you get the replacement switch first so you don't have a wire hanging out while you wait for the new one.

Display panel dim


The display on my cooker started to dim until it finally went dark over a few weeks. Although a different make, I replaced the panel and everything is now fine. I was amazed how bright the new display was so it must have been dimming over a long period.

Fan on cooker hood does not work but light works


It it new? Maybe the fan connection in the connection panel come loose or was not done properly from factory. Turn off the breaker to the hood and inspect the wires and connections, if all is good, then maybe the switch needs replacing. Good Luck!

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.

Cooker hood


Look around on the hood and cooker for a small fuse. If you find one, replace it with one of the same type and rating.

Cooker hood not working


Check power from the wall.

Check power in the wiring coming into the hood.

Check to see wiring is not broken.

Powers on but no sound


Check the main amp fuse under the hood, even if it looks good just change it. Often times that light on the amp can come on just from the power amp tunon wire. Try a friends subwoofer box just to make sure the connectors on your box are good, and if that doesn't work then give me some more details....year/make/model of car, what kind of sub, what types of things do you see on the side of the amp....is there a green light as well as a red light?
