The vent fan has stopped working on this hood vent/microwave combo unit. It no longer sucks cooking fumes outside. We have it set up to vent to the outdoors. The microwave still operates, the display still operates. But when the hood vent button is pushed nothing happens. It will say Hi, Med, or Lo like it thinks it is on, but no fan. When the microwave is turned on, the fan does not run then, either, to suck the inside the microwave fumes to the outdoors.
I think it just needs a new fan motor, but am not sure because I am a total amateur.
Don't want to junk the thing if all that is needed is plugging in a new fan motor.
Can I replace this myself? What else should I check? How do I even get to the guts of this device to try to replace the motor?
Thank you for your help and advice.
