    Just put in a Nutone Whispaire and wow, it's like having an open window. Didn't notice this with the old one. Maybe the filter was just REALLY clogged.

The flap door is probably stuck open. find where it exhausts out of the house and see if the flap is free.

Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

Cold air is coming in from outside, didn't do this before.


Look up into the duct if possible. There should be a damper in the duct called a "backdraft damper" that closes and prevents cold air from entering the duct when the fan shuts off. The damper could also be located near the outlet of the fan which could be a wall or near the roof level (maybe in the attic if it goes through there).

Improper air flow was also my problem. The contractor did a terrible installation job. The duct work was incomplete at the transition piece (he used the under cabinet space as part of the duct) and did not seal the duct to the fan assembly. Both items were not readily visible. Once the duct was correctly installed, the unit works fine. Remember a down draft is never as good as an overhead vent.
