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.

The fan has three speeds. The highest speed is very loud! More than twice as loud as the middle speed. Is this normal? Unit is a KWCU360JSS-1


Yes, it is normal. Actually the energy into a fan is related to the third power or cube of the speed. The turbulence of the air contributes to the noise as well as vibration, etc.

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)

Can fan be lower when operating at full speed


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.

Does not take up the smoke or steam - 2nd unit


It really depends on the exit. If the duct exit has to travel really far before exiting it tends to not have as much suction. And like solution 1 said. Make sure the plate was removed

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.

Thermador downdraft does not stop going up and going down automatically


I had a similar issue with the Thermador CVS30R hood continually going up and down, and also issues with the fan starting.
The issue was found to be a loose control arm off the motor. The arm itself moved outward on the motor shaft which resulted in it missing the switches that control the hood up/down and fan start.
This was a somewhat simple fix. Make sure the hood is in the down position. Unplug the unit from power(important!). Unscrew the screw that connects the drive arm to the drive link. Unscrew the motor/control cover, then unscrew the 4 screws holding the complete motor/control unit on (2 Phillips-head screw on each end of the assembly). Pull the complete motor/control assembly out, be careful of wiring. Once out, push the drive arm on firmly onto the motor assembly and tighten the screw. When doing so make sure the 2 micro switch arms are not caught and are free to switch.
When placing the unit back in, ensure all wiring is clear from being caught and ground is reconnected. Put it all back together and done!
