A cooker hood is primarily designed to dissipate any odors that are caused while food is being cooked. It can also help remove any airborne grease that may be created during the cooking process. This is essentially an uncomplicated system and usually cooker hood problems are restricted to issues concerning the motor, main control board, or the lighting system. Ensuring proper cooker hood maintenance is probably the best way to make sure that your appliance performs at maximum capacity without any problems.

Distinct Humming Noise

Usually, if the cooker hood produces a humming sound when it is switched on, it points to a problem with the exhaust fan motor. In most cases, the motor is defective and there may be shorted electrical winding present within the exhaust motor. This type of problem can also be caused when the motor shaft bearings are completely worn out and unable to perform their function. The hood motor is usually not repairable and should be changed. These issues can also inhibit the Fan Motor and Blower Motor, and they should be checked for any signs of similar damage.

Lights Do Not Work

When the cooker hood lights do not function, you might be dealing with a defective Light Assembly. There are no replaceable components in the Light Assembly and the entire unit will have to be replaced. If the cooker hood lights fail to function, you can install a new bulb of the correct rating. If this does not solve your problem, you should move on to the on-off switch. If, your cooker hood utilizes halogen lamps/bulbs, they should be checked. It is not possible to judge the condition of a halogen lamp by just looking at it. They should be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.


Fan Are Light Not Working

If the cooker hood fan and light do not appear to be working, this could indicate a problem with one of the switches on the appliance. You should inspect the Micro Switch, Switch Kit, Rocker Switch, Rotary Switch, and the Selector Switch for any defects. They should be checked individually for continuity with an Ohm meter. If any of these switches are defective they can be replaced. In case your switches are in working order, and the problem persists you should disconnect the thermal fuse and check it for continuity. You can also check the User Control and Display Board for signs of a malfunction. However problems with the control board are quite rare.

Downdraft Vent Does Not Stay Up

This type of problem will typically indicate a malfunction in the Rocker Switch or Selector Switch, and these switches should be tested to determine their status. A defective switch should be replaced.


Downdraft Vent Does Not Go Up

A problem with the downdraft vent normally indicates an issue with the Rocker Switch, which should be tested with an Ohm meter for continuity. In certain cases, this problem could also be caused when the Drive Motor has developed a defect or has burned out. In such cases, the motor should be tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. If the motor seems to be functional, but is running slowly or appears strained it could have sustained a critical degree of wear and tear. Even though the motor is still functional, it is likely to fail soon and should be replaced before it ceases operation.

Motor is excessively loud

If this noise appears to be emanating from the Drive Motor, it could indicate a problem within the motor. This component cannot be serviced and will have to be replaced if the noise is unbearable.

Noise could also be indicative of a problem within the Exhaust Fan Motor. This usually occurs when the fan motor bearings have reached a state of excessive wear. You can attempt to move the motor shaft by hand. This motor is fixed in place and should not move. If it does move, it is bound to generate noise during its normal operation. The motor bearings cannot be repaired or lubricated, and the motor will need to be replaced. Similarly, the fan motor and blower motor should be checked to ensure that their bearings have not failed.
