If the range hood or LED light does not operate after installation
  • Check if the range hood has been plugged in, make sure that all power has been turned back ON, fused not blown and all electrical wiring are properly connected.
  • Swap out light assembly to working ones to deter-mine whether it is caused by defective bulbs.Β 

The range hood vibrates when the blower is on
  • Check that the duct sized used is at least 6" or 3-1/4 x 10". Range hood WILL NOT function efficiently with insufficient duct size. For example: 7" duct over 6" top vent and loosely secured.
  • Check if duct is clogged or if damper unit (half-circular flapper) is not installed correctly or opening properly. A tight mesh on a side wall cap unit might also cause restriction to the air flow.

The blower or fan seems weak

Check the pipe installation.
The damper is not properly installed or isΒ  missing from the installation. Check the damper installation.

The lights work but the blower is not spinning at all, is stuck or is rattling

  • The blower might be jammed or scraping the bottom due to shipping damage.
  • Disconnect the power cord, remove the fan grill and the fan blade, might see the fan blade or/and motor is not in the proper position (offset from the center). Try to fix/adjust it or please contact us immediately.

The hood is not venting out properly

  • Make sure the distance between the stove top and the bottom of the hood is within recommended 27" and 30" in distance. *Due to different ceiling height configurations, recommended height may not be applicable.
  • Reduce the number of elbows and length of duct work. Check if all joints are properly connected, sealed, and taped.
  • Make sure the power is on high speed for heavy cooking.
