My elica cooker hood ametista ix90 - the switch will not stay on to extract
Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.
Is this the push in switch?
Does it push in, start the fan, then the button pops out as soon as you let go?
How old is this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes when you take finger off the button the
Extractor fan stops - it is seven years old
Hi Thanks

On the hood should be a data plate. Can you tell me the EXACT model number from there as the number you have listed brings up several variants
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Sorry, I think thats the serial number?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
The only other number I can see is E023A K50E 2H T2

This sounds like its the switch bank that will need to be replaced. The switch should latch in the on position. Then when you press it again, it should unlatch and release

None of the wholesalers are listing the part
This meands you will need to contact the main agents for Elica

Repolacing the part is relatively simple if you have some basic DIY skills and tools
