SOURCE: range vent damper noise

Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.

Hi,
Sometimes they can be cleaned and oiled and they will work again...
Cleaning the grease and dust with out ruining the motor is the tricky part...
Take the unit apart as much as possible...spray down the fan part with a degreaser or strong cleaner...let it soak and they spray it down with water to rinse it off...
Then work a few drops of light motor oil into the motor by proping up the fan so that the oil will run down the shaft and into the motor...

then get it running smoothly by working it by hand...

Put it all back together and it should work again...

The fan switch contacts are probably welded together or the actuator mechanism is broken. Your best bet is to replace the fan switch, probably with a similar type having a higher current rating so the new one won't also be susceptible to contact welding. If you have an industrial electrical supply dealer or electronic surplus parts store in your area, those would be good places to look for a replacement.

I installed a new Broan QML30SS range hood and fan makes loud humming sound as it runs


An old elecricians joke says "do you know why it hums? It dosn't know the words" Al kidding aside ,have you checked to see how free the fan blade is? The should spin very freely. It kind of sounds to me like it may be having a hard time comming up to full speed. You may try some graphite lube on the motor. If I recall Broan has a lifetime garrentee on the motor. You might just want to repace it if I am correct.

It sounds like the fan blade may be loose on the motor shaft. You can purchase a new motor for this fan online.

It just hums, the fan does not turn.


Make sure the power is off before doing anything. the motor may be clogged with dust, clean it out really good with a blast of air (air can bought at radio shack) get a can of WD-40 and squirt a little on both bearing ends and turn the fan until it feels easy to rotate. make sure no one is near the fan when you turn it on because some of the WD-40 may splash all over. If this does not work you may have to order another motor. http://parts.broan-nutone.com/broan/Shop

My parents had a Broan exhaust fan installed in their bathroom and water is leaking from it. Any ideas on what this could be?


Sounds like a condisation problem. Check the exhaust tube for low spots, and also check if the exhaust tube is isulated.

Replace motor in Broan 678 bathroom fan


I ran into the same problem, Lowe's carries Broan exhaust vents. They had both a replacement motor for all generations of 678 fans for $18, and they also had the latest generation of the complete unit for $40. I bought the complete unit, which included the fan I needed. Just unbolted it from the new bracket and bolted it to the old one. The new light housing, trim piece, and lens also interchanged. The existing one was old and yellowed, so this made for a huge improvement. All done from in the living space as well.
