Very noisy operation

Dear Sir,
My Technika D3/900 ragnehood is very noisy. Took down to inspect. Found several fan blades of the centrifugal fan's rotating drum broken. Will this caused the motor to rotate noisily when used at highest fan speed? Where do I get spares or a fan motor drawing to identify the part so I can quote the spare part number to the appliance parts distributor.
Please help.

Yes....this will throw than fan unit out of balance almost the same way the tires on your car get out of balance. The wobble effect at high speed makes tons of noise.

How do i fix a noisy range hood?


IT THE NOISE COMING FROM THE FAN RUNNING? IF IT IS YOU NEED TO CHECK THE SCREW THAT ;ATTACHES THE FAN BLADES TO THE SHAFT. IT COULD BE LOOSE. ALSO CHECK THE SHAFT TO SEE IF IT IS WORN AND MOVES FROM SIDE TO SIDE. IF IT DOES YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE MOTOR.

So noisy even on low


Does the fan seem like it is spinning off balance. What exactly is making the noise, the fan or the motor. I will see if I can find an owner's manual. Please get back to me on my questions

Noisy loose fan.Found a nut in the fan and trying to get it to stay on fan shaft but keeps falling off. Will this fix problem if can get it on?


Take the nut to a hardware store and ask for a self-locking nut. That type nut shouldn't spin off again. That MIGHT solve the noise problem, if the fan blades are wobbling, or the shaft is spinning within the fan's center.

I just had a Broan Elite E662 hood installed and it is blowing out instead of pulling air in. I held a tissue up to the filter and it does not pull it up...rather it blows it down. Was something done...


It sounds like the fan blade may be installed upside down, or the entire motor/fan assembly is upside down. Typically, these small motors aren't reversible, so you should check the blade first.

Noisy fan or motor?


HI. The most common issue here will be with a loose motor shaft. This is the part that the fan blades are mounted on. When this occurs, the looseness will cause the motor, and shaft to wobble, thus, causing this noise you here at high speeds. The wobble is less violent during the slower speeds, so it is not loud, in this case.

The second issue will be a warped fan blade. This will cause the fan to rub against the shroud, thus, creating the noise, as well.

If the shaft is loose, or bent, the entire motor will need to be replaced. Now, if the fan blade is warped, you can, simply, unscrew the blade from the shaft, and replace it(on most model)

The exhaust hood of my restaurant is very noisy. The problem started 2 months ago.


I would first clean the hood throuoghly, and then check the bearing on the fan, also check if the fan blades are bent.

Fan has a humming noise and locking up


a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!

Nutone motor is ****


Are you replacing the blade at the same time? An unbalanced blade can ruin the motor before its time.
