Is your range hood failing to pull air up through the fan? Clogged filters or a faulty fan motor can cause this problem. A bad fan switch or failed electronic control board can prevent the fan from running.
Poor air circulation is a common issue that affects range hoods. Fortunately, there are a few easy steps you can take to get your range hood back in top condition.
The first step you'll want to take is checking the grease filters on the range hood. They can be easily removed and inspected. If the grease filters are saturated in grease, you'll want to clean them thoroughly according to the instructions in the owner's manual. Too much grease can block air from moving through the filters easily.
After taking care of the grease filters, look around inside the range hood for any other obstructions. If the vents are blocked or obstructed, clean them out as well. The blower fan is also susceptible to getting blocked or clogged. If the fan isn't clogged but it doesn't spin properly, the fan may be broken, or it could be an issue with the fan motor. Try to spin the blade by pushing it; if it doesn't move, then you'll likely need to have it swapped out with a new one.
