Admittedly, not many people take proper care of their range hood. Whether it’s because we don’t consider the grime it comes in contact with or because we spend time cleaning other parts of our kitchen, it can be a real pain when a range hood needs to be repaired. If you’re concerned about your own range hood and you want to know how you can tell if it needs to be repaired, you’ve come to the right place. Below, you can learn more about the warning signs of a faulty range hood.
It Isn’t Ventilating
One of the main uses of having a range hood is for it to remove smoke from your home. It is also useful for those who want to prevent excessive aromas from travelling around a home. Because of this, you might find it especially aggravating if your home is full of smoke and smells due to a broken range hood.
If this happens to you, there are a few things that you can do. For one, you might want to consider looking over your ductwork. It could be that your vents are just clogged and that when you clear them, your range hood will be working normally again. You may also want to look over the motor. If it is full of grease or if it has simply worn down, you might find it better to call professional services. At Domestic Appliance Repairs, we’ll be more than happy to go over this kitchen staple with you.
It’s Making Noise
Now, it’s normal that your range hood is experiencing some kind of noise; after all, it does have a motor that aims to remove smoke and steam from your kitchen. Still, you’re likely used to your range hood’s specific and unique sound.
If your range hood is making an excessive amount of noise, you’ll likely recognize it right away. There are many things that can be causing this noise; among them, your bents could be clogged and your motor might be damaged from grime, grease, etc. If this happens, you should try to clean your range hood before anything else and if it doesn’t help, you may want to consider replacing the range hood entirely. You can also contact us to find out if the range hood can simply be repaired.
It’s Having Electrical Issues
There are a few things that can affect the electrical function of your range hood. For one thing, you could have lights that aren’t working. Now, this will be pretty obvious and if your lights don’t turn on after you replace your light bulb, you could be experiencing an electrical issue.
If the buttons on your range hood don’t work, this is another sign that your range hood is having electrical issues or that the control board isn’t working properly. In this case, your safest bet is to call a professional company and they’ll handle your range hood repairs.
