I may be able to help but I will need further details - firstly note that Acorn have ceased trading but their hoods were made mainly by Elica who are still trading. Could you let me have the full model number please - Ian.

Hi sorry to text again Just check I’m talking about the motor not the hood
Expert:  bonzaco replied 3 months ago.

Yes I understand this, but without the actual hood model number its difficult to track down the correct part and then back track it to the hood. Once I have the hood model I can access the wiring diagram. What I suggest you have been sent in a universal motor without fitting instructions?.

There is a wiring diagram inside cooker hood but can’t seem to send you a picture

Hi have taken photo of inside cooker hood of wiring diagram don’t know if will help but having problem sending picture so really no help sorry
Expert:  bonzaco replied 3 months ago.

See if you can pull it off the hood without splitting it. You should then be able to photo it and get it across to me.
