Major Appliances/Exhaust fan will not shut off


Whirlpool model GH5184XPT-5 The hood fan recently started while boiling water and now will not shut off, kept on the lowest speed it still runs. What are your recommendations suggestions.  The diagnostic book recognizes this event but doesn't suggest a solution.

Most likely the switch that control the fan in question is defective.  Does the switch feel differently when depressed?  You can always gain access and disconnect a wire going to the fan motor or the switch itself to stop the fan motor from running constantly....Let me know how I can help further

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
