Light Switch Schematic For Nutone Whispaire WA6500


No they shouldn't come apart. You need a new part. They are quite cheap - I have seen them anywhere from $4 to $15.

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)

Nutone range hood fan motor quit


You can remove it and bench test it by applying 120 volts to the fan leads. Do you know how to do this -- it can be dangerous if not done properly.

You can also use a voltmeter to measure resistance and check continuity of the motor coils.

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.

The Black 120vac Line In wire goes into "L". The Black wire goes into "2". The Red Wire goes into "3". When you install the switch, the Red and Black wires will be on top of the switch.

Nutone WA6500 range hood fan motor noisy


We have the same product, 18 months in use and the very noisy motor has finally seized up. I contacted the manufacturer and was advised that I need a new motor, motor mounting bracket and fan rotor. The agent was not able to quote me a price for the parts but stated that even though my 1-year warranty had expired, if I faxed them a copy of the original sales reciept they could possibly send me the parts for free under the original warranty agreement. I've done as they asked but haven't received a reply as yet. After reading about all the problems with this product I'm tempted to dump the whole unit and try to find another manufacturer that has a reliable and QUIET range hood.

Motor


Replace Fan Motor
Product Label Says Not To Lubricate Bearings Because they
are permanently Lubricated. However, the bearing are actually gimbal mounted and held in place by a Flimsy Retaining Plate.
Lubrication will only evaporate under oven use due to the rising Heat.
