Need help with range hood fan

Last trip out our Ventline fan over the stove stopped working. I checked a few things out and it seemed like the motor had burned out. I put in the new one today and it did not work either. When I tested the wires I got 12.45 volts so it is getting power. The fan did begin to run when the white wire, while connected to the motor, touched the metal part of the hood. I am no electrician so what am I missing? I did not rewire anything. I just pulled off the connectors from the old motor and pushed them onto the new. Any suggestions would be great. We don't us the stove that much so it is not a major concern, just annoying to me. Thanks.

You lost your neutral or negative lead to the fan motor. Where is the white wire connected to?

There is a white wire that comes out of a hole from the top of the hood. It goes to a wire nut that has two white wires and a small green ground wire in it. One white wire goes to the light and the other to the fan. My light is working fine.

Did you take the wire-nut off and make sure the white wire going to the fan was stripped and making good contact with the other wires? That's where I'd start.

I had a fan problem .Mine was the silver thermal fuse taped the motor . Check the link with a meter . Or hook it with a bypass . You can get a new one at a electronic supply store . If the other motor over heated it will go . If you outside vent for the range hood is blocked the motor will not cool and the link blows

My stove fan stopped working a while back. I had our local trailer repairman take a look. Light worked ok so I knew I had power. He took a diode out of line and reconnected the wiring and fan works again. He said these diodes conduct current in one direction and go bad from time to time. It has not been a problem since.
