Question about Kitchen Ranges
My Whirlpool extractor fan (AKR 651 IX) in the hood above the cooker is making an unusual noise. It sounds like the fan is running at very high speed and makes a high pitched noise. The hood is just over 2 years old.
Any ideas on a simple fix or who is best to call on for a repair?
How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.

try washing on hottest cycle it may be the seal in the spray pump somethimes the rinse aid can put a glaze on the seal if that doesnt work you can replace just the front part of the motor( in australia) dont know where you are.

if its hidden hood that pops up it just has to be flush with counter
this is so you have a clean flat service that make it look like you have extra room
if its a regular hood like old days height should be between 2 to 5 feet from stove to hood for quality air flow easy to install
