Check for power at the mufti selector switch. If you have the correct power at both outputs the low and med windings in the fan are gone. Could also be a bad resistor, if it uses a resitor block to slow the motor instead of windings.

There are two small screws on the bottom of the top lip. Remove them and pull out the endcap inserts. The top shoudl then pull up with maybe some light force. Then you can get to all the bottons.

I have the same issue. How did you solve the problem?

Unfortunately i had found myself in this same situation. i have no idea how the grill came out when it was closed, but it was stuck in the fan enclosure underneath the counter. Unlike the poster above i did not have access to the side screws to take the unit apart. instead i was able to remove the front panel, and then unscrew the motor arm from the protective case, and unscrew the case from the unit. This created enough wiggle room that i could raise the right side of the vent cover up and extract the left side out the bottom opening. then it was just a matter of reconnecting the arm to the cover and the cover to the unit.

Good Luck,

Hi,

My RV30S was installed by a qualified service technician in approximately the year 2000. It finally developed a mind of its own. It would raise up and run for a bit and then stop....sometimes it wouldn't raise up or go down....it would switch from fast to slow to stop.....it became frustratingly unusable....
...today i finally took it upon myself to take it apart and I determined that the controller board had fried.


Before I go on -> Disclaimer: These units are hard-wired to live A.C. power. These units must be serviced by technically qualified service personnel. I do NOT recommend anyone to attempt this service. I've worked in the past as an electrical engineer by trade. But to save you time and money you can shop and buy the parts you need yourself and then hire an appliance service technician to safely install them for you. This way they can't rip you off by over charging for the parts and you can certainly count the hours for the install.


The controller board is shown here. In my case, this diode fried.

I found a replacement controller on E-Bay for only $82 bucks and change. At the time of this writing they had 14 in stock.

It sounds like you may be having the same problem. But please be sure to hire a qualified appliance service technician to do the work. If he quotes a price for the controller board anything over 82 bucks, you will indeed will be in a better position to negotiate a better deal.


Hope this helps anyone that is having or will have the same problem with an older RV30....

Usually the buttons themselves are the problem. The little contacts on them that connect the gold terminals on the board you replaced get dirty or wear out. If you are not getting any erratic operation (up and down on its own or locking itself in child lock etc. ) then I'd bet you just need a row of buttons to go with your new board. just as a note, the control boards down below are quite failure prone, so if you are getting any other weird operation, i would suspect that instead. they have redesigned the entire board to be more reliable, if that tells you anything. Hope this helps.
