My quiet bathroom fan makes a roaring noise


The roaring noise is probably the fan blades (looks like a hamster wheel) are worn out as it rotates on the spindle/shaft.

It may be a problem with the 4" exhaust ducting, that connects to the exit part of the fan, has come loose. Theres a damper (kinda like a flapper) at the fan/ducting joint may have broken off and may be sitting sideways in the ducting flapping around inside the duct.

At any rate I highly doubt its wiring. Sounds like its time to pull the fan cover off (turn the power off first via the wall switch or the service panel breaker would be even better) and look at the fan blades. Clean off any dust bunnies, lint, etc. and turn the fan back on. Did the noise stop?

If nothing looks out of place and it still makes noise you'll have to get in the attic and remove the ducting from the fan and see if theres a problem at the connection there. Maybe a squirrel put its bedding in the ducting? It happens.

Could be lots of reasons for the noise but wiring it wrong wouldn't cause roaring. The fan wouldn't work, or worst burn up, if wiring was the issue. The problem is the more than likely the fan blade assy is worn out or something is restricting the air flow in the ducting going to the outside of the house.

Best possible solution for clicking noise while fan is on MC 2005? Even if you turn off AC and leave fan running you get the noise. It stops only if you turn off fan completely... Thanks!


This is usually caused by ethier the fan is touching the side of the housing, or There is something stuck in the fan housing. Items can fall down the vents easily Becoming trapped. Paper is great for making clicking noises, my customers complain About clicking or a rattle like sound I usually find a small piece of cardboard or paper In the fan or duct work. Ethier way you will probably have to remove the fan, or access The duct work in some fashion to find the cause of your noise.:-)

Fan runs but no cool air or any air coming thru ducts


Be sure the "fan running" noise you hear is actually the fan and not just the refrigeration pump. The unit would still make a running noise but the fan may not be turning.
Check to be sure the filter is clean and that all vents are open.

2005 ford focus makes load noise when heater fan is on???


Maybe a stray leaf, twig or other small object has been sucked into the ventilation duct, touching the centrifugal fan.
You need to pull off ducts around fan and inspect.

Drum not turning, hear humming noise


the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

Hi i hear a ticking coming from behind the glove box, i tried turning every thing off, it still ticks till i turn the car off


It may be the heater blower fan. It is always on when the car is running. I'm pretty sure the blower is under/behind the glove box.
Does the ticking noise change when you speed-up or slow the fan speed? If so, there may be a leaf or something stuck in the fan blades. You might have to have the blower motor removed to get it cleaned out.
Hope this helps...

Whwn i turn the heat all the way up loud clicking noise if turned lower noise stops what could this be notfan


I think your talking about the heater fan? If you hear more noise as you increase the blower speed, there is something in the squirl cage or a problem with the blower motor itself. Leaves, paper or something lite on the pass side floor, it will get sucked into the recirculation duct,causing a noise.Remove the blower motor and clean out any debris, and inspect the squirl cage and turn the motor by hand to see if you hear any noise
