Range Hood Maintenance


With its ability to vent aromas, gases, and heat, a range hood is unquestionably a vital kitchen equipment. However, it, like any other home equipment, will need to be maintained on a regular basis. Continue reading to learn more about how to get the most out of your range hood.

Is the Range Hood Without Power?

Range hoods are either hardwired into the house’s mains supply or plug into a wall. When the fan and light do not turn on, it is essential to check if a fuse has blown.

The Range Hood’s Light Isn’t Turning On

The first order of business is to inspect the light bulb if the hood fan is running but the light is not turning on. Replacing the bulb in circumstances when it has been burned out. If the problem persists, the source of the problem could be a broken light switch or a faulty light socket. This is frequently available for purchase and is simple to set up. However, if the switch is broken, you may need the help of a professional repairman.

When the Air Conditioner Isn’t Working

In this case, one or both of two frequent concerns are likely to be at play. To begin with, an on-off switch may be broken, or the fan motor may have burned out. It’s preferable to employ a handyman to fix these problems unless you have good repair skills. You can use an ohm meter to check the fan switch if you want to figure out what part isn’t working. If there is no continuity, the switch is not faulty, and the problem is more likely to be the fan motor.

Other Recommendations for Upkeep

Your range hood will not only not perform at optimal efficiency if the filter is not cleaned of all the grease buildup on the fan and filter, but it will also shorten the appliance’s lifetime expectancy – not to mention create a potential fire hazard. Cleaning your range is very simple and does not take much time.

  • Locate the filter underneath the hood using the appliance instructions and carefully remove it.
  • Remove any grease from an aluminum filter with hot water and soap. Before reinstalling the filter, let it air dry.
  • Wipe the interior and outside of each blade with hot, soapy water.
  • When you’re through, put everything back in its place and reconnect the range’s electricity.
