Hey Samurai,

can u help me.

I just bought this unit brand new in the box from an appliance guy on ebay.

I got it, plugged it in to test it before installing it and it only raises then hums loudly.

The fan never comes on and I can only lower it by disconnecting it and letting it lower by manually flicking the "clicker" switch on the motor, i believe.

I have studied the wiring schematic very closely and think I basically understand it, but cannot troubleshoot it "alone".

Can u help me?

I am willing to repair it rather than return it, even though the seller is very uncooperative on the sale.

I got it for a very good price, new in box, "older model".

Do these units have problems usually?

And what is the usual problem.

I would like to order any needed part but to buy all the parts for it will cost more than I paid for unit.

Thanks in advance,

scott

P.S. In the email u said u thought it was the limit switch.

In this unit the 2 switches on all in one unit it seems.

Does the fan turn free? Is there packing materials in the fan area?

check each Switch operation and it's wiring

Does the Hood rise completely ?

Can you post the wiring diagram somewhere ?
