Electrolux Hood Repair
Kitchen hoods can save the owners from many troubles: to provide the house with clean air, to extend the life of the repair. Therefore, if this device suddenly malfunctions, owners of household appliances begin a feverish search for a good repair specialist. After all, hood repair is not an easy task, and only the Appliance Service Center can do it. Our company provides quality Electrolux Hood Repair in San Diego County.
At-home kitchen hood repair may be required because of a variety of operational problems, the most common among which are:
- Loss of performance.
- Lack of lighting.
- Lack of any response to power on.
- Failure of the speed switch.
Common hood breakdowns
Insufficient suction – no exhaust odors can be eliminated.
Possible causes: clogged filter element, broken exhaust fan impeller.
Insufficient extraction capacity of the kitchen fume cupboard hood
Most often caused by untimely filter maintenance. Use water and detergent to wash the metal grease filter or replace the disposable filter. If the fan is broken (usually one or more blades break), it needs to be replaced. Contact Electrolux Hood Repair and Service, we do all work related to replacing the hood filter.
Before you run to the store for a new bulb, check that it’s working. Incandescent and halogen bulbs are tested with a tester (multimeter) in resistance measurement mode. The resistance of the filament is usually calculated from several readings. No reading on the meter indicates a blown filament. Electrolux Hood Repairs will carry out replacement parts.
With LED lamps the situation is more complicated. Inside these devices in addition to the LEDs is the control driver, which cannot be checked with an ordinary multimeter without disassembling the lamp. So, to check the performance of the LED lamp it is easier to screw it into the working socket.
Does not react to power on
No mains power burned out track or fuse. If after connecting to the mains the hood does not respond to any manipulation, you must first check the voltage in the socket, which uses a multimeter in alternating voltage measurement mode.
If everything is okay with the input voltage, it is possible that the track on the control board or the fuse, which is installed in the appliance to protect against power surges, has blown. In this situation, only professionals from Electrolux Hood Repair and Service should be trusted to repair your kitchen hood.
The speed cannot be switched
The main reason for the failure of the push-button or slide switch is natural wear and tear. In terms of repairability, buttons are better because there is the option of replacing a single item rather than the entire unit.
On the other hand, if the slide switch starts to “malfunction”, you can try taking it apart and cleaning the contacts. However, to avoid the problem returning soon, it is better to replace the old switch with a new one. After replacing the part, the Electrolux Hood Repair technicians will restore the switch to working order.
Fan not spinning
If the device does not make any noise when turned on at any speed, and there is also no smell of burning winding, most likely, the thermal fuse has blown. After replacing the part, the Electrolux Hood Repairs and Services technicians will restore operation. The fuse is mounted directly in the motor housing and blows due to severe overheating of the windings.
If the motor “hums” when voltage is applied, there are two possible situations: the starting capacitor malfunctions or the rotor jams due to a poorly functioning lubricant filter. And the worst situation is when the smell of burning insulation appears. Here, only a rewinding of the motor or the purchase of a new one will help. Electrolux Hood Repair will diagnose and fix the problem at the owner’s place.
All of the above hood malfunctions are easily fixed by an Appliance Service Center technician. Don’t let an unqualified technician repair your hood – it’s dangerous to your health first and foremost! False economy may have serious consequences – you will not only lose the appliance but also cause significant harm to yourself and your family. Only an experienced Electrolux Hood Repair and Service technician can help.
