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.

    I have the same problem. The noise came from the right blower motor (or turbine). I figured it was just an unbalance fan because after running the fan on the highest speed for 5 minutes, the noise would then disappear from the lower speed. I had the unit replaced, and guess what, same problem! This must either be a design flaw, or the worst luck ever. Based on your same experience, it sounds like a design flaw.

1998 buick regal blower motor and resistor making a click sound on high but will not turn on


You should always make sure that the parts you put back are compatible with the parts you take off. If i am not mistaken, there is another fan resistor outside under the hood, and one inside under the passenger side dash panel, if your motor is inside. One outside is for high, and the one inside is for low, medium, and medium high. If you know for a fact both speed control resistors are good, replace the switch on the dash panel. To check to see if the dash switch is not making good contact, take the switch while it is still in, and on low, high, or medium, push the switch lever to the right or left gentlely to see if it makes any contact. These year model cars are notoriuos of having fan motor issues early........

You shouldn't buy a store brand fan! You get what you pay for! Take it back and get your money back & go to a fan store. Get something with at least a 13 degree blade pitch.

My hunter remote control ceiling fan doesn't go real fast. the highest speed is what a normal fan would do on medium. is there a fix?


if you have pull chain switches in addition to the remote control, your pull chain switch may be set to Medium, which would make the fan run on a maximum of medium speed.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

Casablanca fan speed problem


If this fan has a pullchain that also controls the fan speed, and you have a remote, the pullchain has to be set for the highest speed. If it is set at medium or low, it will mess with the remote operation. Note: usually high speed is the first pull after the "off" position.

Check the fan assembly probably located behind your glovebox. The fan could be off-center.
