Help Replace Discontinued Range Hood Vent Fan Switch Answered
The variable speed fan control on my Thermador HT48HQS hood vent does not work and the replacement switch is no longer available. I'm looking for some help in making a new switch. The Thermador VTR1000Q motor is mounted on the roof and controlled at the hood with a variable speed control knob. The motor is rated at 115V 60Mz 7.8 Amps. Photos of the switch assembly are attached.
From what I understand, the speed control knob is a potentiometer that regulates the speed by proving a range of amps from 2.5 to 8?
If I could make a variable speed control that would be great. But I'd be more than happy to have create an on/off toggle switch or a toggle for low on/off high. Can anyone help me?
