Frequent faults in cooker hoods
Hood breakdowns are often caused by incorrect installation, improper use and untimely cleaning of the grease filter. Unstable mains voltage and normal wear and tear can also damage electrical components.
You can tell if your kitchen hood needs to be repaired by:
- Lighting that does not work. If the light source is an incandescent bulb, it can be replaced by yourself. To repair the switch box or LED lighting, you must call in a Hobby services.
- Reduce the fan power. Check that the grease filter is clean. It is recommended to clean it at least once a month (depending on how often the appliances are used in the kitchen). The recirculation models have an activated charcoal filter in the hood, which must be replaced at least twice a year. If the air flow through the filters is maintained, the cause is likely to be motor failure. A Hood Repair technician will be able to determine the exact cause and rectify it.
- Lack of response on the control panel switches. It is possible that there is grease on the switches. A professional technician should be called in to clean or replace the switch mechanism.
- Noise noises and vibrations during operation. The motor bushings (bearings) may have worn down. Sometimes the noise is due to the motor running with an increased load because of a clogged external ventilation system.
Causes of premature hood failures
- Failure to clean the grease filter in a timely manner. It must be cleaned at least once every 3 weeks if you cook for an average family on a daily basis.
- The charcoal filter, if fitted, should be replaced every six months and is usually fitted to hoods with a recirculation option for vapor recovery. The most modern models incorporate an LED to indicate the need for filter replacement.
- Operating the hood under direct fire from a cooking zone can also quickly damage the system.
- A clogged ventilation system can put a great deal of strain on the operation of the cooker hood. Ideally, there should be a natural draught in the ventilation duct.
- It is important to remember to switch on the extractor fan, as a strong stream of greasy vapor can quickly damage the extractor motor if it is not in operation at the time.
In the event of the first signs of malfunction, you must call a service technician. Continued use of the faulty cooker hood will result in a complete breakdown and the purchase and installation of a new appliance, the cost of which is much higher than the cost of repairs.
