Thor 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 should perform it. Our company provides quality Thor 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.
Major hood malfunctions
Insufficient suction – no odors can be eliminated. Possible causes: clogged filter element, broken exhaust fan impeller.
Insufficient extraction capacity of a kitchen fume cupboard
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 must be replaced. Contact Thor Hood Repair and Service, we do all work related to replacing your hood filter.
Before you run to the store for a new light bulb, check to see if it works. 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. Thor Hood Repairs will perform replacement parts.
With LED bulbs, the situation is a bit more complicated. Inside these devices, in addition to the LEDs, there is a 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 AC voltage measurement mode.
If there is nothing wrong with the input power, 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 Thor Hood Repair and Service should be trusted to repair your kitchen hood.
Speed doesn’t switch
The main cause of a button or slide switch failure is natural wear and tear. In terms of repairability, pushbuttons are better because there is the option of replacing an individual 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, so that the problem does not return soon, it is better to replace the old switch with a new one. After replacing the part by Thor Hood Repair specialists, the work of the switch is restored.
The fan does not rotate
If the unit does not make any sound when turned on at any speed, and there is also no smell of burning winding, most likely, the thermal fuse has blown. When the part is replaced by Thor Hood Repairs and Services, operation is restored. The thermal fuse is mounted directly in the motor housing and burns out due to severe overheating of the windings.
If the motor “hums” when energized, 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. The only help here is to rewind the motor or buy a new one. Thor Hood Repair will diagnose and fix the problem at the owner’s place.
All 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.
