Light and fan wont work


Check the breaker panel for a tripped breaker. Also check Gfci receptacles, if you have an older house the wiring for the range hood could have been added to existing wires.

What is wrong with electrolux cooker hood when ive changed new bulbs, the extract works but lights don't.Did make a bang when old ones blew?


Good Afternoon friend, thanks for your post!
From what you have described your Electrolux hood is working properly but the lights are not coming on. I understand that you heard a bang when the old ones went out it could be possible that your receptacle is bad or wire has shorted. I would suggest having a technician out to properly diagnosis your hood. They have the appropriate tools and knowledge needed to pinpoint the reason your lights are not working properly. Good luck. -Matt

Kitchenaid range hood uxb0600dys wiring schematic


I don't mean to be rude, but wiring this hood without a schematic should be simple for a qualified electrician. Perhaps you should pass on this and hire one.

We have a SV168n-36 Spagna Vetro Range Hood and it works well but the lights are having problems now. They only come on intermittently and when they do come on once they heat up they shut back off.


I had the exact same problem with my Spagna Vetro hood. The fan worked fine, but the lights started working intermittently and then stopped working altogether. The problem in my case was a failed transformer, which sits between the power switch and the lights and is necessary to step-down the voltage from conventional 120v to 12v to support the halogen bulbs in the unit. Although there are several steps to resolving the problem (replacing the transformer), it's really not difficult. Here's what I did to solve the problem:

1) Shut off the circuit at the breaker (always very important :^) )
2) Removed the glass arch from the top of the hood. Four screws hold it in place and are accessed from above the unit.
3) Removed the access panel above the fan and light switches. This panel is visible underneath the glass arch, when the glass arch is removed. I slid the lower section of the decorative stainless chimney cover upward to gain complete access to the back two screws of this panel.
4) I unplugged the original transformer from the light on/off switch (connected with two yellow wires on my unit). Remove the wire-nuts and disconnect the 12v leads from black and white wires that connect the transformer to the halogen bulb fixtures.
5) Using a flat-head screwdriver, I pried the transformer off the metal surface to which it was adhered with double-stick tape. This was strongly adhered and took a bit of prying.
6) Found a replacement step-down electronic transformer at the hardware store. My hood takes only two 10 to 20 watt bulbs, so only a small transformer is required. The original one I removed was rated to 70 watts max. I replaced it with a transformer rated to 60 watts max. Either was more than sufficient to cover the 20 watt load produced by my two 10 watt bulbs. Cost of the replacement was about $15.
7) Connected the replacement transformer to the hood power switch. Here, I had to be a little careful to maintain the original polarity of the wires from the switch. This is because the original transformer, though it had one white and one black wire on its 120v side, was attached to the switch via two identical-looking yellow wires, using a non-standard plastic connector. The new transformer did not have one of these connectors on its 120v input wires (black and white), and I wanted to make sure that the I wired the replacement exactly as the original had been wired. Fortunately, the original plastic connector ensured a consistent polarity. When I looked at the end of the connector, one lead was square and one lead was round and noted that the square lead had been attached to the White wire on the original transformer. The replacement transformer also had a white and black wire for its 120v side. So, I marked the yellow wire from switch that attached to the white wire through the square lead. Then, I cut off the plastic connector from the yellow wires, stripped the sheathing from them about 1/4 inch, and attached the white wire from the new transformer to the previously marked yellow wire, using a small wire nut. I then connected the black wire from the transformer to the remaining yellow wire in the same way.
8) On the 12v side of the transformer, the wires are the same color and I did not pay close attention to polarity, simply connecting each to the spliced wires leading to the halogen bulbs (that I exposed when I removed the wire nuts from them in step 4, above) using fresh wire nuts.
9) The double-stick tape that attached the original transformer to the hood remained firmly attached to the metal surface of the hood and it was still very tacky on the surface that had been attached to the original transformer. So, after I tidied up the wires in the space, I positioned the new transformer over the tape and pressed it down firmly, which seemed to adhere the new transformer to the hood pretty well.
10) With the connections completed, and power restored to the circuit at the breaker, the lights worked fine, and the fan continued to work fine. I reversed the steps I used to expose the switch and transformer.

So that's all there was to it. The cost of parts was about $20 for the transformer and a bag of wire nuts. Investigating the problem probably took more time than the actual repair, which took about 20 minutes from start to finish.

How do you replace?


Kitchen hood replacement can be completed easily with a family member or a friend. While you may wonder why anyone would replace a kitchen hood, the answer usually is simple. Here is how to replace a kitchen hood.
Tools Needed

  • New Range/Kitchen Hood
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Friend
  • Wiring Nuts
  • Circuit Tester

Warning: Remember that you are dealing with electricity, so stay away from water and use all safety precautions issued by the manufacturer.
Step 1 - Shut off Electricity

Remember to turn off the electrical supply to the old kitchen hood. You will need to do this via the circuit breaker box. Wait for 10 to 20 minutes and then test the wires with the circuit tester to double check that no electricity is being supplied to the kitchen hood.

Step 2 - Remove Old Hood

After you know for a fact that it is not receiving an electrical current, you can begin the process of removing the older kitchen hood. You should first take off the electrical wiring cover that is located by the light fixture. Then have your family member or friend hold up the old kitchen hood while you remove any screws or bolts from it. Once that is done, you can then freely slide it off.
Step 3 - Check Wiring

Double check that you have at least 12 inches of wiring to connect your kitchen hood to the wall. It should be noted that if you have a kitchen hood without vents, proceed to step 5 next.
Step 4 - Find the Ducts

If your new kitchen hood has vents, you will need to locate the fan or vent duct. Once you have found it, you can open up the vent hole where it will belong.
Step 5 - Wires

Open up the covering for the wiring and put the covering in a safe area for easy reach.
Step 6 - Install the New Kitchen Hood

Have your friend or family member hold up the kitchen hood and mark the areas where the screws or bolts will be. Then have them put down the kitchen hood and screw in the screws half way into the holes. After that, you can slide in the kitchen hood.
Step 7 - Route Wiring

Lightly pull the wiring through the proper holes and connect both black wires from the new kitchen hood to the black wire from the wall with a wire nut. Then connect the two white wires from the hood with the white wire from the wall, again using a wire nut. Next, connect the green wire to the green ground screw. Then place the wire covering back on.
Step 8 - Tighten Screws

Finish tightening the screws in place.
Step 9 - Test

Check to make sure the fan and light work. If it is supposed to vent outside, make sure that the air is leaving the vent with no issues. If something does not work proper, repeat steps 6 and 7 until everything works well. Remember that you will be working with electrical equipment, so follow safety measures issued by the state or the city.

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.

Broken light switch on a Nutone


The Black 120vac Line In wire goes into "L". The Black wire goes into "2". The Red Wire goes into "3". When you install the switch, the Red and Black wires will be on top of the switch.

Ventahood fire suppression systems


the wiring has to go to the microswitches
you can add up to three micro switches,they are located in the control box
there colors should be bl,brown and red
look for nc or no(you can depress the switch by hand to see when you press itup it shuts power
it has to be repeated for the light,plugs and make-up air
to pass inspection when you press up on switches the have to shut off electric lights and make up air
you dont need a relay.
the basic system is a contactor line and load runs exhaust and make up air power in power out.
you need power just for the contactor to pull in.
you need to add a switch break hot on contactor power
