Electric/electronic range exhaust fan question
I know that there are many smart folks here so I will ask this question.
The fan in our rv's range hood doesn't work. I farted around with my meter and found that I have 12 volts going to the fan. There is some kind of inline resistor (maybe, it looks like what a resistor looks like if I remember my high school electronics course, but it could well be something else).
At any rate I have 12 v going into said device but I do not pick up any current on my 50v setting on my meter past this gismo (resistor). Should there be? Do these fans run on 12v? I thought I read 13.5v on the motor itself, which seems pretty lose to 12v to me.
The unit appears to be one piece, what is normal, toss all including light and shroud, etc. and replace or is there a way to replace just the motor?
Thanks for your help.
