In this repair guide, we will explain how to replace a module or Printed Circuit Board (PCB) in your cooker hood assembly. Before starting to work, please ensure your appliance is disconnected from the electricity supply.

 

We would recommend you watch our video since we're showing how easily you can change the PCB of the cooker hood extractor.

Removing & Replacing the Cooker Hood PCB or Module

Firstly, you need to remove the two metal grease filters from your cooker hood. This will grant access to the interior of the appliance where the PCB is located.

Inside the cooker hood, you'll find two screws securing the PCB in place. The PCB's location may vary depending on the cooker hood's make and model.

This particular PCB controls the motor's three stages: low, medium, and high, and it also manages the lighting. The wires connected to this PCB are soldered on, but some cooker hoods may come with a plug connection for the PCB, which makes it easier for you to replace.

Next, you will need to remove the mounting plate. After you detach the mounting plate, you'll have access to the circuit board. (At this point, we suggest you watch our video since we show removing the mounting plate easily.)

Furthermore, the PCB case is secured with four screws, which you will need to remove. We recommend you have an extra set of hands to hold things in place while soldering the board, especially if you're working in a confined space.

Before you start, remember to mark up your wiring to know where they need to be reconnected. You can remove the wiring by heating the solder to melting point and gently pulling the wires out. Please be cautious during this process to avoid burning your fingers.

After you've removed all the wires, clean up the old wiring to ensure it's free from any lumps of solder. This will make it easier to attach the wires to the new circuit board.

When installing the new PCB, you should insert the wires one by one. Heat the wiring first, then add the solder. Make sure that you don't rush this process to get a solid fix with the solder to the wire and the board itself.

After you've soldered all the wires to the new PCB, follow the steps in reverse order to install the PCB into its case and then into the cooker hood.

 

Please remember that safety should always be your primary concern when working with electrical appliances. Also, our video includes step-by-step and detailed explanations, which may help you reduce your repair time.
