I have a range/stove hood with a really strong and loud blower motor.
It's so strong that when we moved into our small house, the inspector made me disable the highest 3 speeds/CFM fan levels (600CFM) - which I did by cutting the wire marked "strong" (there's also a "medium" and "weak" - all run from the control panel to the fan motor.)
The "medium" uses 2.9A, the "weak" uses 2.6A, and I think the "strong" (which I cut) used around ~3.2A.
Can I put a resistor onto the "strong" wire at my cut, and reduce it from probably its original ~3.3A to ~2A in order to create a slower/quieter option on my currently useless setting?
Ohm's law seems to tell me to use a 60ohm resistor - (120V/2A) = "X" resistor ohms.
I have extensive experience with 12V systems and solar, and much residential AC electrical, but I have never added a resistor or tried something like this.
The model is the "Ancona Inserta".
