Ventilation Hood Repair Service
Technician Fixing Vent Hood
Vent hoods (also known as range hood or exhaust hoods) have become as stylish as they are practical. Most now offer the commercial look of stainless steel yet available anywhere from few hundred dollars and up. The most expensive part is a motor inside the hood. Motor is also a part that does not get broken but other parts could cause issues over time. Many over-the-range microwave ovens also offer a stainless-steel finish.
There are three different types: under-cabinet range hood, island range hoods, and wall mounted range hoods. Either one you have these are the problems that you might have with your exhaust hoods:
Ventilation fan not working
Light on the fan not working
Motor became too noisy
Filters seem to be clogged
Hood does not exhaust air
Exhaust pipe has been damaged
Exhaust pipe has been disconnected
Range hood speed button not working
There could be one or multiple issues with the hood at the same time and we suggest to review some of our solutions listed below and perhaps you will be able to fix your hood by yourself. If that doesn’t help simply give us a call and speak with one of our technicians over the phone! The best way to reach us is to give us a phone call first as we might help you with the problem over the phone without charging you at all.
Over period of time my hood started to work so bad, I mean hood was working but didn’t do any job (was not taking air outside). Technicians from TAS Canada came, replaced two filters that were completely jammed with grease. Very reasonable price and fast service.
Fast response and extremely professional service. I have saved your contact information in case we need you again. Everything was covered by the warranty and I am one happy camper. Cheers.
Problem: Neither fan nor light are working on the ventilation hood
► Solution: There are few problems that could cause this. If the range vent hood light and fan do not work check to see if there is power at the unit at all – if there is a plug then see if the hood is plugged in, if there is no plug check if the breaker is out and turn it on. Not very often but if the vent hood fan and light are not working the switch might be defective and might need to be replaced. Order the switch for your model and replace it.
Problem: Motor inside is too noisy now
► Solution: If the motor in the hood is too loud or too noisy it will probably have to be replaced. You may order the motor from the manufacturer and replace it. Hood motors are generally not serviceable and do not require any maintenance or lubrication once they leave the factory, hence need to be replaced.
Problem: Filter seem to be too cloged (hood not venting properl)
► Solution: Over period of time it is completely normal that filters on the vent hood will get clogged with grease and dust. How fast it really depends how often you cook, how often you use the hood and how clean is your kitchen. It is recommended that these filters are replaced about once a year. However, if the hood is used heavily on daily basis filters might need to be replaced every few months. They are simple to replace – look for a button to open the hanging doors so that you can slide out and then slide in new filters.
