Zephyr Kitchen Ranges - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I am completely guessing but assume it uses electronic switching?
A standard or old sort of cooker hood use mechanical switches, which would have to be seriously faulty to switch themselves on, though water ingress from condensation entering a switch can over time cause a carbonised track to form that could when damp carry enough current to run a low powered motor or alternatively blow the fuse/trip the RCD if the track is a ground path.

With electronic switching there are usually buttons mounted on a circuit board and in order to produce compact dimensions the tracks are very close together. The buttons usually need only make a momentary contact for a very small current to flow and the brain to switch on the motor.
A tiny drop of water entering this unit can cause mayhem...

I would try a hand steamer, it definitely won't affect the stainless and I'm assuming you have a large glass, stainless or tile cplashback. Hope this helps

The fan light switch blinks when it is time to clean the filter. Clean the filter, then press and hold the switch for 3 seconds to reset it.

I am also looking for instructions for PLHV36W6CC.

The fan is on right now but the switch is sliding back and forth loosely.

I just downloaded the manual but that was no help.

If someone has a quick solution, that would be great.

Please email me at [email protected]

I have stuck my hand up and fiddled around but besides just ripping it out, could use some help.

-If only the wire itself burn then just replace the wire. You'll be okay. But if the switch it self totally burn, all the plastic around already melt down then yes it need to be replace.
-If you totally can't get the original one to replace, you can buy one from Lowes and modify to hole to accept it. It'll be okay as well.

Good luck
