Iam ma, I am reconnecting wiring to the motor terminal block

Customer Question

Hi.Iam ma
JA: What's the brand and model of your appliance? How old is it?
Customer: Hi. I am reconnecting wiring to the motor terminal block on a Lamona Cooker Hood. It was taken apart but some of the wires are still not connected. I would like to know where the 1.5m farad capacitor is connected. I think the hood is made by Lamona, as the 80 watt motor & 3 speed motor controller coincide with the online spares suppliers I don't know the model as it was installed when I bought the property 8 years ago.

Hi, I'm Daniel welcome to JustAnswer.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your cooker hood. Lets see if i can help you on this.

Can you post the model number of the hood then i can see if it can get the wiring diagram for this.

Hi Daniel.
I have contacted a CNA trading helpline.
They have mailed me an installation & spares books. But they don't show the motor 6 way terminal block wiring details.
The Hood ia a Designair CHK 60 SS . They are sold by B & Q.
Expert:  Daniel replied 14 days ago.

Ok this is a Cata brand and getting service manuals from there in near impossible.

If it was Lamona i can get most service info on these.

Im afraid i will need to opt out on this as i know i wont be able to get the wiring diagram for this, Sorry.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
