Why is my kitchen hot? Smokey? fan not running?
Many times during a kitchen exhaust hood cleaning we find that a hood isn't doing it's job. This will result in a hot, smokey kitchen and hood noises such as the humming of the fan has stopped. The problem most often found upon inspection is a fan belt is broken. Most fan belt manufactures of kitchen exhaust hood fan belts will recommend changing the belt every 6 months. That is why all our service trucks carry most common belt sizes in order to fix damaged belts.
