Common hood breakdowns
The hood doesn’t work completely

If you don’t find any faults, then you need to contact FOTILE Hood Repairs. They will help you quickly solve all the problems related to the breakdown of the unit.
If your hood is making a lot of noise, then the cause of this breakdown could be a low-quality manufacturer.

If the fan has failed, you should contact FOTILE Hood Repair and Service, they will replace it as soon as possible.
Can’t change speed
If your hood doesn’t switch speeds, then the problem may be in the control box button. You should visually inspect your circuit board. The contact on it may have simply burned out. In addition, the starting capacitor may be the cause of the malfunction. In this case, the capacitor should simply be replaced, at the service center by the specialists of FOTILE Hood Repair.
The hood won’t turn on
If when you try to turn on the hood, the backlight in it does not work and the fan does not turn on at all, you need to check for voltage in the socket. It is also necessary to check the serviceability of the power plug of the hood and the integrity of the cord. Next, check the motor winding and the contact pads of the switch.
The contacts can oxidize if the hood is used for an extended period, especially since the hood is constantly operated in a very humid environment. Contact FOTILE Hood Repairs and Services, we perform all work at the customer’s place, quickly and with a long warranty.
The unit won’t shut off
If your hood was working fine and then suddenly stops turning off, the first thing to do is to clean the control panel. Accumulated grease or food residue can block the switch. To fix the problem, you need to clean the surface with a sponge and a small brush. Sometimes manufacturers equip hoods with a special protection that locks the control. Grease or foreign objects can clog this protection, preventing it from shutting off.
Fan speeds do not switch
Speed switching in modern fume hoods is accomplished by buttons, slide switches, or sensors. If there is a problem with the fan speed changeover it is necessary to check if the control buttons, control box or control board are functioning properly.
Excessive fan noise
Excessive fan noise can be caused by poor workmanship or faulty installation of the exhaust duct. Low-priced hoods are often made with poor workmanship. In such models, even the slightest play will cause severe vibration, creating noise and hum when the motor is running.
Lights won’t turn on
Very often, many people use the hood simply to light the panel. This approach is considered effective, as it is cheaper to use the hood than the lights. If the lights on the hood do not work, then you should take the following steps to fix this problem: check the bulb, as it could have simply burned out.
The hood is dragging weakly
You should check the grease traps for contamination. Often, the hood is poorly ventilated because of clogged filters. If necessary, you can simply clean the filters. You can do this by contacting our company, our FOTILE Hood Repair specialists will fix the problem.
