Repair on Broan pm390

I have contacted Broan concerning a whining noise in my pm390 range hood. They think it is a loose blower wheel and they told me to drop the motor and tighten the wheel. Unfortunately I do not know how to "drop the motor" - I have tried to find pictures online and hit a dead end, Can anyone help me with this? thanks

Why isn't my Rangemaster Hood blower turning when switched on?


Hi Ed
Being a range hood & subjected to cooking fats etc. It might be gummied up around the fan and just require cleaning!
But.... you said it was humming and there is a capacitor close by.
Then it's probably an induction motor thats not getting kick started by the Cap. While it's humming, use a finger (or stick) to push start in one direction or try other direction. If it spins up and stays going.... you've found the problem. The Cap is not kick starting in the right direction. Remove the Cap (with AC Disconnected) and check the values to get a similar replacement.

Good Luck
You searched for Start capacitor

The fan motor makes a noise but doesn not start rotating, if you rotate the fan the motor kick in and continues to work until it os turned off.


Hi,
The motor probably is not starting because the bearings are a bit stiff....
Take the hood apart and give it a good cleaning, being careful to not get the motor wet...
Then if you can get the hood in a position to run some light motor oil down the shaft and into the motor... spin the shaft as you do this... get oil worked into the motor bearings then it will probably work again...

Hood operates very loudly


Hi,
Often the dirt and grease will build up on the fan/blower wheel and then some of it will come off throwing the wheel out of balance... this creates an intense vibration of of course a lot of noise...
Take the hood apart and clean everything really good and check the motor bearing to make sure they are not bad...(loose motor shaft in and out or up and down)...

Then you should be quiet again...

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)

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.
