Range Hood Fan and Light Stopped Working

Thanks in advance for any thoughts to fix. Had fan running for about half an hour along with the range hood lights. Both just stopped working...checked 15 amp fuse...ok. Took off filter screen and found additional small glass fuse...also ok. Never had a problem before. Made by Baraldi...from Italy...no customer service number for the US. Thanks for any help. Gene

find where it plugs in to the electrics... is there power there? Did fan quit or lights or both?

This probably runs on the 12Volt power... need to check for sure.. don't just look at fuse.. check with a meter or other method...like a continuity checker. I have had 'good' fuses fool me before..

Remove the panel where the wires are and carefully check power there.

Just grasping at straws here but you mention the fuses are ok. Was a breaker tripped? Check all those and if one is not on, click it all the way off them turn it on again.

Ours trips once a week when we are using the trailer. The 15 amp fuse located under the screen has always been the culprit. The open is frequently not visible to the naked eye.
Airstream suggested that a larger fuse was needed and it too is blowing. I am waiting for a replacement unit....
Check the fuse with an ohm meter or just replace it and see what happens.

Get a test light, and check for 12 volt power to the hood. Then check for ground. Checking for ground in this case is connecting the test light to a known ground, touching the tip to the ground on either the fan or the light, and turning that item on. If the test light lights up, you have a bad ground.

That fuse is 15 amp? It is a short little fuse? I will replace and try again. I will also get a light tester.

My 2012 did exactly the same thing about 3 weeks ago. It was that little fuse....which blew for no apparent reason. AND, it is not an easy size to find. (If Radio Shack doesn't have it, you KNOW it's a rare size.) I replaced it with the next higher amp size.

Hi BAB,

I spoke to Airstream this am and they are sending me a couple in the mail. They claim it is a 3 amp fuse but now use 5 amp. The unit was made in Italy and the fuse is a little unique I guess...it looks real short compared to most glass fuses. Thanks for the message.

I'd still pick up an inexpensive 12 volt test light. You never know when gremlins could strike.

Listen to Terry! I wouldn't leave home without my handi-tester! I did put a 5 amp fuse in and it worked fine....I suspect that when you looked at it you couldn't tell it had blown. The filament is about the size of a human hair....so a continuity tester was essential when I diagnosed this one.

Gremlins...

Is that little fuse an "inline" or do you have a screw cap that holds it in place?

In either case, if I could get to the wires I would put in an automotive resetable breaker. Nothing like having to fumble with a fuse over you stove while cooking. With a resetable breaker you just press a tab to reset powers is then restored!

I would put a 5 amp.

Of course this is at user responsibility so beware. It is not a difficult change improvement but will likely give them cause to void any warranty that remains. But that should not happen because a 5amp fuse is same as the breaker. The breaker is meant to reset rather than replace.

The real culprit sounds like the Italian job is beginning to fail or the fuses are not really 3 amp.
