I have a Whispaiare WA6500 range hood with a broken light switch (part R561138)...anybody know which wire goes where on the new switch? A wiring diagram is what I need. There are 4 places on the switch (labeled) and only 3 wires. Thanks

could be simething as simple as a disconnected wire, prior to calling for help, check these items if you feel okay with that , first turn off the circuit breaker and where the house wires come into the unit,, remove the wire nuts and check for burned areas,, if thats ok, reattach them and move to the switch or switches, unhook the wires, ( make note where each one goes ) and check them with a meter , this is probably where your problem will be,
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.
I would begin by checking the electrical panel as the circuit breaker or fuse that sends power to the hood may have kicked or blown. If that is not the problem open up the wiring box in the hood. It is unlikely that bvoth switches would have gone bad at once.
Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.
We have the same product, 18 months in use and the very noisy motor has finally seized up. I contacted the manufacturer and was advised that I need a new motor, motor mounting bracket and fan rotor. The agent was not able to quote me a price for the parts but stated that even though my 1-year warranty had expired, if I faxed them a copy of the original sales reciept they could possibly send me the parts for free under the original warranty agreement. I've done as they asked but haven't received a reply as yet. After reading about all the problems with this product I'm tempted to dump the whole unit and try to find another manufacturer that has a reliable and QUIET range hood.
