I recently bought a house that was built In 1978 and it came with its original almond brown Swanson model b9700 range hood. After I moved in i noticed that the liight on it wozas not working and the fan wasn't getting past the first setting. I was wondering if someone could tell me wats wrong with it or something weather or not it is worth fixing.

Assuming it's not the bulb or the fan motor, you may just need to replace switches for both.  Testing the bulb is easy.  Testing the fan motor I'm not so sure about.


Replacing the entire hood isn't a big job.  New ones look basically the same as what you have there, although they won't likely be available in brown.
