Neff cooker hood problems
Your Neff cooker hood may be built-in, integrated, or a chimney or island type. Whatever style of cooker hood you have all the component parts are similar. They consist of a motor that draws the cooking air into the hood and expels it outside, lamp holders that encase the light bulbs, and a control switch that typically controls the speed of the motor and the lights.
When you have a Neff cooker hood not working it can be for several reasons. See Neff cooker hood troubleshooting below:
Neff cooker hood lights not working
This is an extremely common fault with any cooker hood and happens more often if you run the lights constantly. This can cause the electronic modules that switch the lamps on and off to overheat, or the lamp holders to melt. The majority of cooker hoods have bulbs and components designed for minimal use and shouldn’t be left on for extended periods of time. Another issue that can affect light failure is the incoming power supply that can result in bulbs blowing. The control module and control switch can also be defective with circuit failures that prevent the lights from working.
Neff cooker hood has poor airflow extraction
If your extractor doesn’t work it generally relates to an issue with brushes in the motor which can become worn or get stuck. If this has caused the motor to break it will need expertly replacing.
The more common reason for your extractor hood not pulling air from the room adequately is poor ventilation. You may find that the vent has become blocked, or the external slats have locked on the outside.
Neff cooker hood smells
If there’s an unpleasant smell coming from your extractor fan it could be due to grease and dust accumulating in the filter. Most hoods have removable grates and filters that can be washed and replaced.
Alternatively, there could be a less likely source coming from a dead animal that’s found its way into the extraction system. If you believe that this is the case you’ll need to contact professional pest control services who will identify the reason for the odour and remove and dispose of any dead vermin for you.
Neff cooker hood not switching on
This could simply be due to faulty wiring or an issue with a particular component such as a switch that needs to be either repaired or replaced. Bear in mind the fault could lie within the circuits connecting the main oven.
Sockets, fuses, switches, and the incoming power supply will all need to be investigated, particularly if your circuit breaker trips every time you put the oven on. Any electrical problems should be handled by an experienced appliance repair specialist who can safely and effectively resolve them.
