Zephyr typhoon AK2100 Kitchen Range Hood

This is a 6 speed Range hood. all 6 speeds were working before, but now all of a sudden, only TOP speed (number 6) works, FAN does not work at any other speed (1 to 5). Halogen lights are working at all speeds.

any suggestions will be welcome.

Just in case ... the control board is in the front of the hood behind the speed & light power buttons. It IS a bit of a PITA to get it out: Pull down the underside cover (5 screws on the perimeter hold it).
Use the provided suction cup to pull down to remove it. When you do there should be enough wire to the lamps to rest the whole cover on your stove, otherwise dosconnect the inline wire connectors. the hard part for me is getting that board out / back in. there is a 3/4" Buss fuse onboard that seems to pop on my hood every few months.

Medium Fan Speed not working


Switch is probably faulty, or wire / connection to switch. If switch and wiring test ok trace wire from that button back to wherever it goes and look there for fault.

Why won`t the fan of my venmar range hood turn off?


Sounds like you may need to replace the fan switch. The fact that it wont turn off and that it only works on low speed supports that switch is broken.

What controls the speed of a range hood fan? , only when i push the hi button or the low speed button, the hi speed button only works. its a old model built in 1960 , can't find the model number ...


You will need to check inside the button contacts to identify if the control of current is by a series resistor or by the coil winding.
Since the high speed is working it is possible that the series resistor coil is open.So check for loss of contact continuity in the switch, if not you can use the present model of electronic fan controllers to give you a variable fan control. This can be connected to the main hi speed connection.
Tip: Identify the wattage and buy the regulator according to the specs.(42 inch type)

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)
