Have you recently noticed that your cooker hood is not working? Don't worry, you don't need to be a specialist to diagnose and fix the problem. There are lots of different types of cooker hoods, but they are all made up of roughly the same principal parts. These include:
- The Control Switch - This is how you operate the cooker hood. There may be different switches that control the fan speed and the light(s).
- The Motor - This is necessary for the cooker hood to be capable of drawing the air from the kitchen away from your stove.
- The Bulbs/Sockets - If your cooker hood lights up, it will have light sockets and bulbs to do so.
- Filter - traps grease and carbon from the extracted air
Diagnosing the problem:

- The cooker hood isn't extracting properly - If your cooker hood is struggling when you turn it on, it's likely that the motor is faulty/damaged or the filter/filters need replacing.
- Cooker lights won't turn on - Cooker hood lights aren't designed to be left on for long periods, if you're someone who likes to have the cooker hood light on it's possible you've fried the electric circuit, damaged the bulb socket or the bulb has blown. Alternatively, the switch could be broken.
