often these motors have a condensor on the side - a bit like a cross between the little white cylinder in a flourescent light housing and a starter motor - they are a bit vulnerable but are pretty cheap and easy to replace. Sounds like that is the problem - little click is it trying to start but not getting the extra help from the condensor. any good electrician should be able to fix it quickly, unless a part needs to be ordered in. he should also check if there is a fuse inside, and if the main part of the motor is ok. If the motor has died completely (which is rare) then it is still probably worth replacing, but might be a but costly. also there could be a relay connected to the switch (a way for a small switch to transfer heavier current to something) - and sometimes these can also fail. Also easy for an electrician to check and fairly cheap to replace. some motors also have a thermal protection device, which may be able to be reset by pressing a small button on the side somewhere, also possibly faulty and cheap and easy to check/replace. if you can look at the motor easily, just see if there is a small plastic push button switch (almost certainly connected to the body of the motor somewhere) if so, make sure the power is off, push it in and it should click to an "in" position. Might solve the problem. If you get a guy in to look at it and he is struggling to find the parts, please post again and we can try and source them online for you. If you fancy trying it yourself then post again and we can try and talk you through it, not TOO hard but you would need a bit of electrical knowledge and tools. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Ventline Range Hood Fan broken
In my RV, which should be similar, I removed the filter from the hood. With power off, I removed the fan, which was held on with a clip. Removed two screws holding the motor in and took it to a camper supply store. Mobile home supply would have had it, too. You might find the motor on line if you go to the website of the manufacturer or search for parts for that brand.

SOURCE: 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)

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.
