Electric kitchen chimney is a very useful appliance in any modern kitchen. When we cook that time we generate oily & spicy fume. Such fume not only makes things dirty and oily but also someone who use to cook daily inhales such harmful gases everyday. So we can understand, how much essential appliance it is but it is one of the costliest investment in kitchen too. That is why we feel anxious and upset once it stopped working or when we find any kitchen chimney problems.

Common kitchen chimney problems
Too much noise
Noise is a very common problem of electric chimney. Higher suction power means more noise. But sometime reason behind excessive noise can be something else. If you did not do cleaning of your kitchen chimney for long time then that may create malfunctioning of chimney or excessive noise. So auto clean your kitchen chimney (if this feature is available) otherwise inform service center people for cleaning.
Suction not working
Kitchen absorbs oily & spicy fume from your kitchen and then filter that fume and return filtered air to the atmosphere. Now if suction system is not working that means it is not performing its actual task. Such major issue may happen due to damaged motor. So inform service center guy immediately.
Fan is rotating slowly
Sometime suction is okay but not properly working as fan is rotating very slowly, so kitchen chimney is not being able to apply maximum suction power. This problem may be rectified by changing condenser (capacitor) or servicing of motor(greasing, replacing damaged ball bearing etc).
Electric chimney not running
Sometime you have switched on from power supply board but not a single feature (auto clean, suction, top light etc) is working. If such incident will happen to you then you must check power at switch board and visually inspect power cable to find any damage area. If everything is okay then call service center guy as it may be due to issue in internal circuit.
If any other kitchen chimney problem you are facing then let us know.
