Usually a stove is pretty easy to keep running and running well. However, if you’ve had your stove for a long time, after a while you can probably expect for things to go wrong. One of the most common problems that people have with their stove is the fan. Hiring professional stove repair in Brooklyn is sometimes needed if this fan develops problems. You may be able to troubleshoot problems with your stove fan yourself if you have an Ohm meter handy.
How to Repair and Maintain a Stove Fan
The first thing that you will want to do is check to make sure that the circuit breaker hasn’t been tripped. If it has, you won’t have power to your stove fan. All you would need to then is just turn the circuit breaker back on. Also, you should check your fuse box to make sure that the fuse in question isn’t missing or damaged. If it is, you would just need to simply put a new fuse in there and that should solve your problem. Most often stoves are without plugs, but if yours has a plug, make sure that it hasn’t come unplugged.
The next thing that you are going to need to do is use the ohm meter on the range hood fan to make sure that electricity is indeed reaching the switch. You will want to see a zero for resistance at the point you have the fan turned on. If your problem is that the fan doesn’t work on any speed but one, then the problem might be that the electricity is only getting to one section of the switch. In this case, you should turn off the stove. Then, you would simply put a new switch into the appliance.
Stove repair is pretty simple if you have the right knowledge to do the work needed. The next thing that you will want to do is use the ohm meter on the motor to the fan. If you see a number that isn’t zero that means that the motor has gone bad. If that’s the case, you should find it easy to get a replacement motor to put in your stove.
If your stove has a blower connector for the fan, check to see that all wires are connected correctly. You should also take some time to clean the filters within the fan. This will help you to get the air moving like it once did. All you need is some water with soap to do the trick. This will get rid of the grim and let the air get moving again like it used to. Carefully reach out and feel if you notice any vibration when the fan is on. If there is a lot of vibration, you may need to replace the actual fan portion of the range hood.
