TblShoot 2 Speed Range Hood Fan
My kitchen range hood fan no longer works - it is about 2 years old and has seen only light use. Here is what I believe is the replacement fan:
Broan Replacement Range Hood Fan Motor and Fan - 2 Speed # 97012248, 1.1 amps, 120 volts - nutone Broan
I would like to first verify the existing fan, not switch/wiring is the problem. I pulled the fan it has a three wire connector. The wires are colors Red, Black and White.
Using an ohm meter I measure about 6 ohms between Red and Black. I read an open between Red/Whit and Black/White. All three measure open to the metal lament. As the fan does not work in either speed I'd guess the White wire is open inside the fan unit. Or, the Red to White would be low, say, and that plus the Black to White would be the second/high speed. That works for me logically, but I do not know anything specifically about this motor, or even this type motor.
Seeking advice on what I should measure with a DC Ohm Meter between the three named wires.
Or does the White being open to both Black and Red tell me the motor is bad?
