Why would my hood stop working?

Hood works by pulling it out. Both the light and the vent have working. Is not a tripped fuse. This is sudden as opposed to a slow decline. And a new light bulb doesn't sorry the light problem. What else could it be?

Have you checked the switch? Plug might have just come out.

speaking with the embarrassed voice of experience.

Sounds like there is a switch that is operated by moving the front panel. This switch might have worn out. Less likely there could be a poor connection or wire fallen out.

It is probably somewhere in the switch/speed control/light switch assembly.

However, you can check the supply to it. It might come from the kitchen lighting circuit, down from the ceiling, or it might be a spur from the kitchen socket circuit, in which case the will be a fused connector or a plug, probably hidden away behind the hood or adjacent high cabinet, and the fuse might have blown.

We had this when we moved into a new house. It was the fuse in the plug, which was plugged into a socket above the wall cabinets. New fuse and everything worked again.
