Location of Range hood fuse

My range hood exhaust fan stopped while my wife was cooking. Is there a fuse and if so where is it.

It should be on your 12V fuse panel normally located at your distribution panel (where the converter is)

Is the light out also? if not, it's the motor.

The motor has an internal fusable link. When you replace the motor, drill some holes in the bracket to let air pass through the motor...

Not sure what model rig you have but on our 5th wheel I found an additional fuse in the concealed space above the hood. To get to the fuse one would have to remove the hood. This fuse was for the motor and not the light. Also I found a fusible link on the fan motor itself. The link was covered with a woven material and taped to the side of the motor. To check it I ran a continuity tester against it before removing the woven material. My issue was the motor itself burned out before a fuse was burned. Go figure!
