How much does cooker hood repair cost?

The average cost to repair a cooker hood will depend on the type of problem. There’s usually an initial callout fee to have an engineer come to your home and to inspect your cooker hood. If it’s a simple defect they may be able to repair it then and there for little or no extra cost.

The average callout fee for a cooker hood repair engineer is usually £45 to £65. However, if a more complex repair is needed or new parts need to be ordered, there will be an additional cost for parts and labour.

Some repairs may be covered by your warranty, depending on the nature of the issue. Therefore, it’s worth checking with the retailer or manufacturer to see if you can get a repair free of charge.

Range hood repair cost

The average cost for a range hood cooker repair is around £100. Though, like with any cooker hood, the cost will depend on the type and extent of the issue.

Factors affecting the cost of cooker hood repair

There are a number of factors that can affect the price you pay for repairing your cooker hood, including:

  • Size and type of cooker hood
  • Age of cooker
  • Overall condition
  • The extent of damage or parts needing repair
  • Any spare parts needed
  • Time taken to complete the repair
  • Where you live

Common problems with cooker hoods

The good thing about cooker hoods is that there are relatively few parts on the inside. That means, if your cooker hood breaks, it’s usually due to one of a shortlist of problems.

Poor airflow

If it feels like your cooker hood is not pulling in enough air, it’s usually either an issue with the motor or a problem with ventilation in the room (check any air vents are open and clear of blockages).

Cooker hood lights don’t work

This is one of the most common issues. The lights in a cooker hood are decided to light the hob below during cooking only, they shouldn’t be used as a light for the room or be left on for long periods of time. Doing so can cause the bulbs to blow or damage the wiring due to overheating.

Odours coming from the extractor fan

The extractor fan in your cooker hood is responsible for filtering a lot of ‘dirty’ air, which often leads to a build up of dirt and grease in the filter. Most cooker hoods these days have removable filters that you can take out and clean. That will often solve the problem.

Broken switches or buttons

Cooker hoods have few exterior parts to break, but the buttons and switches can sometimes get worn out or snap if used forcefully. Repairing them is often a quick and simple procedure, but it may involve removing the outer shell of the hood. We always recommend hiring a professional to carry out repairs to ensure you don’t damage any other elements in the process.

Useful cooker hood repair checklist

  • Make a note of the problem that you’re having with your cooker hood.
  • Check if the repair is covered by the retailer or manufacturer warranty.
  • Contact local cooker hood specialists for their professional advice and accurate prices.
  • Shop around for fair and competitive cooker hood repair costs.
  • Always hire a tradesperson with experience and check their previous customer ratings and reviews.
