dead circuit

I have an 06 cavalier, yes a FEMA version, or as Gulfstream likes to refer to it as "a residental model"...and that is ok because i am using it as a temporary camp while i build a structure. of course it has its share of gremlins which i have to sort out. the one that has me more perplexed is a partially dead ciruit. everything electrical in the trailer works with the exception of the hood (light and fan) over the stove and the ceiling light directly above it. i have not yet taken the converter out to check for bad wires or breaks...but i would figure the whole circuit would be knocked out. any ideas??? how do you access the wiring other than taking panels off of the wall or is that the only way?

Could the hood light and fan operate off AC? Have you checked the bulb, socket and wiring in the ceiling light??

We have one of the same units. There is a switch in front of the sink that needs to be turned on then the hood light and fan will work

i have been looking for a switch! i found the switch for the water heater above the sink but have as of yet found the other one. Where in front of the sink ( probably right in front of my eyes no doubt) is it?

Ours is right on the lower cabinets right on the front panel there. Don't remember if there is 1 or 2 switches there. I believe it was on the panel right above the drawers.

Could be yours was never put in and there might be a wire there that needs to be connected. That stumped meat first too.

i dont have a switch just a plug above the sink but got it all fixed. the bulb was burnt out of the oven hood. so i knew there was power there...the fan motor was gummed up and after a little playing around it works. the ceiling light that i thought was in that same same circuit isnt and once i pulled it down i found a bad connection.
