It sounds like the fan blade may be installed upside down, or the entire motor/fan assembly is upside down. Typically, these small motors aren't reversible, so you should check the blade first.

The fan switch contacts are probably welded together or the actuator mechanism is broken. Your best bet is to replace the fan switch, probably with a similar type having a higher current rating so the new one won't also be susceptible to contact welding. If you have an industrial electrical supply dealer or electronic surplus parts store in your area, those would be good places to look for a replacement.

This sounds like something has got into the track area and is setting off the safety. they are designed to stop raising or lowering if they meet any resistance and anything in the track area will cause it to happen in both directions

Hi

Turn off the main switch and rcd and open the CU. A residual-current device (RCD) is an electrical wiring device that disconnects a circuit whenever it detects that the electric current is not balanced between the energized conductor and the return neutral conductor. Connect temporary wires (preferably some bright color you would not normally see in a CU so it can be easily removed later) between the earth bar and the neutral bars.
Check for continuity with a multimeter between the earth and neutral wires at the cooker hood feed position .If there is no continuity at this stage you have serious problems and should get a sparky in then disconnect the neutrals of each circuit from the CU neutral bar one at a time and retest continuity at the hood (start with the likely ones like kitchen sockets and downstairs lights and cooker circuit if present) .When you find out which circuit it is put its neutral back in the bar and start breaking that circuit in various places until you find where it's spurred from .

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Light button blinking why


The fan light switch blinks when it is time to clean the filter. Clean the filter, then press and hold the switch for 3 seconds to reset it.

Brian range hood model CJD130SS fan light on display flashes with fan off or on.


I believe that's the "change or clean filter" indication. Clean the aluminum filters in the dishwasher, replace the charcoal filters if non-ducted, press the fan light over 3 seconds and it should reset.

Lights on hood fan will not shut off.


It sounds like your switch is getting stuck internally. It most likely needs to be replaced.

Here is a break down of your unit. http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop?DSP=30200&PCR=1:1000&IID=QS330AA&imagesequence=

In winter, cold air blows back down and out through the fan.


Hi,
Either a backdraft damper was never installed in the ductwork or the damper is stuck open...
Has it always been this way?? If so then the damper probably was never installed and you will need to have one installed to stop the air...
If it was good at the beginning and now is not then the damper is stuck open...you will need to find it and then get it working agian...
The dampers often are right at the outlet of the hood...if you take down the hood it should be right there...

Fan blows air down instead of pulling up


Sounds like the motor is wired backwards. You'd probably want to get an electrician in to take the motor out and rewire it.

I just had a Broan Elite E662 hood installed and it is blowing out instead of pulling air in. I held a tissue up to the filter and it does not pull it up...rather it blows it down. Was something done...

Fan turns on and off since turning hood light on a few days ago


If it is a Broan, there is a delay button that was also depressed. It will turn the fans off after a few minutes. If not, then you're shorted out either in the control panel or the wiring in the range hood.
