We had the same problem on our trailer. My husband replaced the fuse with a five amp as others did and no more problem.

The fuse is dedicated to the fan so you will need to replace it. It is behind the hood filter on the right. It is Bussmann 5 Amp Time Delay GDC-5A. Got mine at Ace. Seems like every outing I am looking for something. Last time it was the sink sprayer not shutting off. Went to all the RV supply stores and finally found one from Lowes that I made work.

Our vent fan was a chronic fuse blower even after switching to the larger fuse. Like several times a day! Airstream replaced the unit and we have had no recurrence of the issue. Sometimes it is simply a bad part....

Based on this thread I decided to get some spare fuses, although I could not even read the numbers on the existing fuse. After 3 auto supply places and no luck I went to Radio Shack. Success! These things are 5x20 mm fuses???? Why would anyone use something other than an automotive fuse in a 12vdc RV application???

Metric products

The range hood is made in a metric country (Italy) so I'm not surprised that it has a metric size fuse--though I would certainly prefer a common US size fuse. And I don't know if the yacht/boat market tends to be metric, or not.

According to AS tech support, the manufacturer has approved using 5 amp mini fuse.

I've had the same problem, but haven't been out since calling AS.

Stands to reason, the 5 amp will take care of the issue.
