The extractor fan and light stopped working at the same time, on a hood that is less than 1 year old. i think the fuse has gone but can't even locate the fuse box! there is only one fuse point in my kitchen and that's the switch for the cooker.
I am having a very simlilar problem. My prima hood is a few years old...first the bulbs went then the actual fan went. I think it might be the fuse but cannot locate it anywhere...have searched the whole flat and tried everything. Would it be in the hood for any reason?
Any help would be appreciated as i have no idea what to do...i can't even replace it til we find the fuse.
The extractor plugs in to an outlet. Find the plug and see if the fuse in the plug has blown. In my kitchen the outlet for the extractor plug is above the cupboards over the hob, you can't see it standing on the floor and you have to get up on a chair to access it. Check in the cupboards around the cooker as well if you can't find the plug.
My light bulb blows frequently and it always takes the plug fuse with it. The fuse on mine is a 3A fuse. Good luck!

Re: Fan and light not working where is fuse box?
In some areas, there is a requirement for a fuse/breaker box in the kitchen for the stove or oven. There must be another electrical panel. Find it and shut off power to the hood there before doing anything else. To see if the breaker is the problem, turn breakers to off and then back on.
Does the fan and light normally come on as a pair? If so, the switch might be bad. Until you locate that breaker...we can't tell.

if it is a fuse your fuse box will be located under hood and sometimes you may also have two fuse boxes , one under hood in a black box in plan view that says fuse and relays. remove the cover and look under the lid. you will find descriptions and placement labels under cap. find your fan and lighting fuse if blown replace with recommended fuse. same goes for other fuse box under dash or located on driver side or passenger side of dash in between door and dash. must open door to view fuse box.
Extremely likely the fan motor. get to it then , after removing fan blade,plug it in directly to a 110v outlet ,just for a second to see if it works well( don;t touch it while prefoming this test,only the plug), or jumper out the switch(with electric disconnected) momentairly to see if the fan runs after turning the electric back on.
Your problem is: You have a neff extractor fan which hasstopped working. The light and fan have both stopped working. Do I know where you can find the fuse as you suspect that this may be the problem. If I don't think it is the fuse would I be able to suggest anything else. The type is D-AY25-8 If there is another number that is more helpful please let you know. thanks Again your Neff Series 2 extractor has stopped working and you want to save yourself buying a new one!! Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Since both light and fan require low voltage it sounds like a bad transformer. It will be mounted next to the motor. Make sure you turn off the power first.

I have a similar problem with a Whirlpool oven hood. In my case the kitchen fiitters used a (UK) standard 3-pin plug to power the hood. The plug is fitted into a socket that is placed on top of the cupboards that house the hood. I have replaced the 3 amp fuse in the plug and now the fan is working. HOwever, the light isn't working and so I'm assuming that the bulb has blown and that this has caused the fuse to blow as well. Now my problem is accessing the bulb so that I can replace it.
take out switch assemby and check if the track of the pcb is blown - caused by the bulb goiung. you can often repair by soldering in wire links. bet you have 12a fuse in system - should be 3a. track has blown instead of the fuse
