If you love making meals in your kitchen, you understand how vital your range hood is for removing smoke, steam, and grease from the air. Once you switch on the vent above your range or stovetop, it releases these impurities outside your home so they don’t travel to other household rooms. But when it’s not functioning up to par, you’ll need a vent hood repair in Wichita, KS.

What Are Some Vent Hood Issues?
Range hoods can be ductless, ventilating your kitchen by pulling odors and smoke into a series of filters. These filters scrub the air before redirecting it back into your home. Others include ducts that expel the air outdoors.
If you have a ductless system, filters clog within a few months, rereleasing contaminated air back into your living space. Similarly, cracks or split seams in ducted systems contribute to air leaks that release the air within your kitchen before it can make it outdoors. So, if you’re noticing poor air quality after turning on the fan, clean the air filters or call a specialist to examine your fan blades, motor, and ducts.
However, your vent hood is about more than ventilation, meaning you may notice the following as well:
- Lighting: Dim or no lighting points to a busted bulb, wiring issue, or faulty on/off switch
- Sounds: With a working hood fan, you should hear a slight humming, but if it sounds more like a louder buzzing, contact a team member

What We Can Do to Remedy the Problem
If dirty filters are the culprit, one of our seven highly trained factory technicians will dismount the filters and either scrub them with hot water and dishwasher soap or replace them altogether. Otherwise, we’ll seal and clean your air ducts before checking other hood parts to prevent range hood breakdowns.
Lighting is usually a simpler fix since a replacement bulb will sometimes suffice. During a bulb replacement, we’ll turn off the breaker and remove the glass covering over the bulbs. Then, we’ll disconnect the bulbs before installing new energy-efficient ones.
Vent hood repair in Wichita, KS, also includes inspecting the fan blades, especially if they’re making noise or inefficiently cleaning the air. We’ll remove the grille and determine if anything is rubbing against it or if the part is faulty. If squealing is the issue, the fan motor may need lubricating; if you hear rattling, there may be loose bolts. Whatever the problem may be, we’ll remedy it.316-265-2866
