Main elements and principle of operation of kitchen hoods
Inside the kitchen hoods is a motor that rotates the fan
The air flow created draws in vapors from the cooking process. There are two types of fans installed in the hood: axial and tangential. The air flow passes through the filters on which grease vapors and odors settle.
There are three types of cooker hoods:
- Recirculating, purifying the air back into the room.
- Flow-through hoods that extract air from the room by connecting to a ventilation system.
- Combination hoods can work as both recirculating and flow-through hoods.
The extractor can work fully or not fully due to various malfunctions. The sequence of actions for different types of breakdowns is different. In general, kitchen hood repair is not a difficult task if you contact the craftsmen of Fisher&Paykel Hood Repair and Service.
Let’s look at common types of malfunctions that can be fixed by inviting Fisher&Paykel Hood Repairs.
The cooker hood doesn’t draw odor out of the kitchen properly
This is usually not due to a faulty hood, but for other reasons.
- Improperly selected unit. The hood motor does not provide enough power for a room with a large volume.
- Incorrect connection (if any) of the hood to the ventilation system.
- The ductwork is long and has many bend angles.
- There is no or no back draft in the duct to which the hood is connected.
Lights do not turn on and/or fan speed cannot be switched
There are usually two reasons for the lack of light in the hood. A blown bulb or a faulty switch. A bad contact on the switch often results in no light. In mechanically controlled hoods, it is not uncommon for the button to get stuck because of dirt inside. Fisher&Paykel Hood Repair and Service can fix the problem.
Impossibility to shift speeds is also caused by defective buttons
The rotational speed is switched by several buttons located in one block. After removing the protective screen check the integrity of contacts and traces on the board. If there is no visible damage, the circuit is checked with a tester. If the circuit is in order, it is possible that the fault is in the starting capacitor which has burned out. If you do it yourself, you should not waste time, and should contact the technicians of Fisher&Paykel Hood Repair.
