Question about Zephyr Pyramid ZPY-E30 Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Noisy fan When the fan is on the low or medium speed it makes a gurgling/rumbling sound. This only happens on one of the two fans and is most pronounced on the medium setting. My husband said it sounds like the rotor is unbalanced. Thank you.

Blower is working, but makes a medium to high pitch sound

Blocked or dirty filters or grease buildup on the fan blades. It may also be the bearings in the fan motor are wearing out. Most rangehoods , only have the motor assembly as a spare part.

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

Medium Fan Speed not working

Switch is probably faulty, or wire / connection to switch. If switch and wiring test ok trace wire from that button back to wherever it goes and look there for fault.

Why won`t the fan of my venmar range hood turn off?

Sounds like you may need to replace the fan switch. The fact that it wont turn off and that it only works on low speed supports that switch is broken.

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)

Very noisy operation

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.
