Is everything 240V in there?

If not, the switch may be on low voltage, and the fan controlled by relay.

Check that the switch is actually moving when the switches are moved. Sometimes they don't link up because the mouldings are a separate unit to the switches.- May even feel loose.

HJA2540 cooker hood fan not working. Lights work and little red light comes on when switches for fan speeds are pressed so has the fan gone or is it the capacitor? Many thanks Steve


Unless that's a much bigger range hood than I imagine, there won't be any capacitor - the motor will be of a shaded-pole design. If you have a multimeter, you could measure for voltage on the motor wires when the motor should be running - if reasonable voltage is there but the motor isn't spinning, then the motor's dirty or unlubricated or dead. If no reasonable voltage is present, the electronic controller has failed.

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.

The hood fans seem to be running backwards. how is that possible on an ac motor?


any ac motor can go in reverse. The direction is chosen by the direction of the start winding. reverse the polarity of the start winding where you see the 2 extra crimp connectors where you wired the motor just swap them

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.

Range master 50000 exhaust fan stopped working


Extremely likely the fan motor.  get to it then , after removing fan blade,plug it in directly to a 110v  outlet ,just for a second to see if it works well( don;t touch it while prefoming this test,only the plug), or jumper out the switch(with electric disconnected) momentairly to see if the fan runs after turning the electric back on.

Fan switch not work - Viking 3048SS brand new range hood


There is the on off switch and the blower control that controls the speed of the fan. It is more than likley the blower control that would need replaced.

There could also be a wire disconnected in the hood.

Brand new Viking 3048SS hood - fan switch not working


think i would call viking back and ask for refund of inspection fee and go by the bad switch scenerio the electrician said new fan that would be considered flaws in workmanship in most states dont know where you are located but pretty much same anywhere most inspectors for these companies always try to blame problems off on installers hold your ground and make them fix it and refund that" inspection " fee I've been doing electrical work for several (20+) years it takes longer than 5 minutes to troubleshoot something like that good luck

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)
