FOTILE Hood Repair

A kitchen extractor hood is necessary to ensure comfort, because without a hood it is impossible to be in the kitchen, especially when cooking. The hood is primarily a household appliance, so it may happen that it stops performing its functions or it may be intermittent. In such a case, you can contact our company Oceanside Appliance Service Center. For fast repairs, our company provides quality FOTILE Hood Repair in Oceanside, CA.

Our company has been in the refrigeration repair business since 2001. Our FOTILE Hood Repair and Service technicians have over 20 years of experience.

Causes of a soon-to-be broken hood

  • Failure to clean the grease trap filter in a timely manner. It should be cleaned at least once every 3 weeks if you cook daily for an average family.
  • The carbon filter, if any, should be completely replaced every half a year, but it is usually put where the hood has a recirculation version of the output of captured steam. In modern models there is an LED-indicator, which will inform about the need to replace the filter.
  • It is important to remember to turn on the hood, a strong stream of greasy steam can quickly ruin the hood motor if it is not in working condition at the time. Our experienced FOTILE Hood Repair technicians will perform a quick diagnosis of the problem.

Such causes can easily disable the unit itself, the motor and the electronics. Repair or at least cleaning should be carried out immediately if you notice something wrong, as further operation can further aggravate the work of individual elements of the hood, for example, the motor can get stuck with grease and stop, and then it will simply burn out.

Basic recommendations

  • Keep an eye on the condition of the filters, so that they do not clog, in modern and high-quality models there is an indicator “pollution” in the form of led light or buzzer.
  • Do not allow the hood to work under an open flame, without dishes.
  • Inspect the motor for grease sticking.

Main faults and causes of breakdowns

Weak pull

Noticeably worse began to pull steam, well the first thing you need to check the filters, and especially the filter grease trap, perhaps they are clogged and create an obstacle to the exit of steam. You can make sure of this by turning on the hood without filters.

 The filters should be cleaned and washed using special grease-solubilizing agents. Poor drought is also possible for other, less frequent reasons. If you are unable to solve the problem yourself, call FOTILE Hood Repair and Service.

Hood lighting does not work

The lighting system in most hoods is not complicated. You should start by inspecting the bulb itself and the contacts in the socket. When inserting a bulb that is known to be in good working order, make sure that the bulb itself is in good working order. 

If no faults are found, it is necessary to make sure that the hood motor works, otherwise it is necessary to inspect starting from the socket and inspect all circuits and the switching panel (buttons). You can check the contact pads with an indicator screwdriver, a tester or a test light. Our FOTILE Hood Repair technicians will fix the problem.

Noise during operation

Most cheap hoods of poor quality have a high level of noise due to poor quality assembly of the device. Even a small backlash and clearance during the operation of the motor, can create a large vibration, buzzing and knocking. Over time, even in fairly good models, fasteners come off and mechanisms are broken due to wear and tear. Contact our service center, masters FOTILE Hood Repair and Service will quickly fix all the problems.

The hood does not work at all

In such cases, the fan does not work, and the backlight does not turn on. Naturally, you need to check from the source, make sure that there is voltage in the socket and further with a multimeter to check all circuits in series, you need to make sure that the voltage is on the sites of the board or switch, perhaps the wire is burned out or burned fuse, usually fusible. Breakdown associated with a complete failure of the hood, will fix the masters FOTILE Hood Repair.

Repair of the hood occurs like any other technique. The main breakdowns are caused by broken conductors and connecting contacts. Often burn motor windings from jamming of bearings and moving parts by aggressive grease.

Tracks of electronic control boards can peel off, capacitors can bloat, or wires can simply break. All of the above and many other hood malfunctions can be easily repaired by an Oceanside Appliance Service Center technician. Contact only the experienced craftsmen at FOTILE Hood Repair and Service.
