    Sorry - I thought I was on the "hood" blog.



    The unit is a Jenn Air Range Hood, Model JKT5830ADS.

    I read another person's issue on this site with the exact same problem and was picking around trying to see what he was told. Here was that entry:

    jenn air range hood jxt5830 None of the controls work and the display shows a 2 fan speed and does not change or go off the display. the largest component on the control board is HOT. Do I need to replace the board? The controls have not been functioning properly for quite some time leading up to today.


    I opened the control unit box and there is an element in there (a big blue one) the is extremely hot. Although I've had the unit physically installed since 2006, it has only been hook up to the electric for 3 months.


    Thanks

    Mary

Hello Mary ann wil,
Would need the model number before I can offer any further diagnosis also the make of the unit helps also this way I know what Im looking at I await your reply Thanks Rick
p.s if this is a range and you have no lights working the issue would most likely be found inside the control area I think this is a hood but I dont like to assume so I will await your reply Thanks again Rick

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

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.

No power to cooker hood


Should be on a separate breaker, sometimes wired to a clock/fridge circuit. Check all breakers. I have seen people wire them to a GFCI outlet as well, not supposed to, but people still do it. Check for 120Vac at the fan and light switches, if its ther your switch is bad, it not there cicuit is not connected to power supply.

I have a window unit in which the fan appears to have stopped. It is a eight year old unit but was working fine last season. It was when I started up this year that this occurred. I also noticed that it...


The reason your breaker is tripping is when the fan stops running the compressor is having to run at much higher amps than normal. The replacement of the fan can be very difficult to reasonable. The fan sometimes can be removed then cleaned up (remove all dust, lint) then just lightly oiled to free it back up. Good luck and try to have fun.

Trying to hook up a pilot light switch to a gfi recp not having much luck with getting it to work properly i got 2 conductors from the panel and 2 conductors going to the gfi recp and on the switch i have...


It is unclear what pilot-light-switch is supposed to turn on-and-off.

Option A) pilot-light-switch is going to turn GFCI on-and-off
Option B) pilot-light-switch is getting power from existing GFCI circuit, and switch controls another Load (light, fan or motor) located elsewhere.

Add a comment at any point.
Bare copper wire always connects to green screw.

1) I have a Cooper pilot-light-switch in my office.
Black Hot wire from breaker always connects to dark-colored screw(s).
White Neutral wire from breaker box connects to silver-colored screw
Wire going to Load (light, fan, motor) connects to brass colored screw.

2) Two things happen when pilot-light-switch turns ON:
a) Pilot light turns on. This circuit is powered by black Hot wire, and circuit is complete with white Neutral.
b) Brass screw that had no power, is now powered.

The GFCI:
Hot from breaker always connects to brass-colored Line screw
Neutral from breaker connects to silver-colored screw that is opposite Line screw.
If other switches and plugs are going to be protected by GFCI, they connect to brass Load screw and to silver screw that is opposite Load screw

Option A) You want pilot-light-switch to turn on GFCI receptacle.
a) Wire pilot-light-switch as described above
b) Black wire from GFCI line-screw connects to brass screw on pilot-light-switch.
c) White wire from GFCI silver-screw-opposite-line-screw connects to any white Neutral.

Option B) Pilot-light-switch is getting power from GFCI receptacle AND you want pilot light switch protected by GFCI.
a) Black wire on pilot-light dark screw connects to Load screw on GFCI
b) White wire on pilot-light silver connects to silver screw on GFCI that is opposite Load screw

Option C) same as option B except pilot-light-switch is NOT protected by GFCI.
a) Black wire on pilot-light dark screw connects to Line screw on GFCI or any Hot wire
b) White wire on pilot-light silver connects to silver screw on GFCI that is opposite Load screw or to any Neutral wire

Turned on light switch and there was a click from the unit and neither the light nor fan work now


Hi,
Either there is a bad connection in the fan/light or the circuit braker tripped...there is no fuses or circuit breakers in the unit...
Pull the fan apart and check for power there and if there is non then check the circuit breaker..

I would check the cord or the plug before anything else. Plug another appliance into the outlet if it works try bending the male plugs on the cord slightly and try again. If this doesnt work call the man.

It looks like the part of your computer board on microwave which responsible for controlling light and fan stop working. In this case you have to replace computer board.
