When our Rangemaster has been on for about 30 minutes, the

Resolved Question:

Hi - when our Rangemaster has been on for about 30 minutes, the fuse box trips. British Gas came out and found it was the hood that trips the fuse box. We have turned off the spur to the hood and the cooker does not trip the fuses.
The hood is model LEIHDC110SC serial no 8935 204764.
Do you know what part needs replacing in the hood? Thank you.

Tripping after 30 mins will be caused by a breakdown in insulation in the motors windings and for that serial number you would need motor part number(###) ###-####br />

This happens regardless if the extractor is switched on. ie the hood can just have the lights on and the Fuse box will trip.
Is it possible this could be the control module?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 9 months ago.

If you take out the plug from the side of the motor and power up the appliance again, does this still happen?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I have not tried that yet, I will give it a go tonight and get back to you. Many thanks.

Hi,
First of all many apologies for not replying earlier, I was away for the weekend.
I unplugged the motor and turned on the Hood spur and the Fuse box tripped straight away.
Does this mean it is the control module?Many thanks,Tirath
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 9 months ago.

It is possible, however, there are possibilities of other causes too... the transformer for instance...

Can you read a wiring diagram so that you can test for the source of the fault once it has happened?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Hi,
I have a friend who is an electrician who I can use - would this help?
Regards,
Tirath

The wiring diagram for this model is attached.. you should be able to use it to trace power loss following your trip.
