The set screw is on the squirel cage you need an adjustable wrench but as check all mounting brackets and possibly a belly band that goes around it held by a nut/bolt but that motor may not have that feature

How to repair exhaust fan rattle?


You can look at fan closely and see if there is a set screw holding the fan to the shaft. It could be loose causing the rattle. If that is not the problem then see if the shaft has a lot of play in it. It could be worn out and allowing the fan to rattle. If that is the case then replace the fan

Hi
Just check out for any loose screws or bolts. Maybe the fitting has gone loose, before that check out if anything is stuck in the fan area. Use a blower to clean the area. hope it solves the issue. Dont forget to leave a comment.

Furnace rattles on our 2011 cf315re cross roads cruiser


Most likely:
The blower fan, commonly called a 'squirrel cage" probably came loose and is hitting the housing. Furnace must be removed to re-align and tighten the allen screw. The motors themselves are very reliable and last years.

If you didn't cover the inlet/outlet exhaust with a screen when in storage you may have wasp nests. I forgot once and removed 4 paper nests and 2 mud dauber ones. Had to disassemble the whole furnace!

HVAC is making rattling noise


Your fan that is attached to your blowermotor is loose, causing the rattle, or the bearings in your blower motor are bad, causing the shaft and fan both to rattle.

Noisey 8 x8 Broan Bathroom Exhaust Fan (With Light) (7 years old)


Mine was doing the same thing. I found it was coated with dust.

I took the blower out [unplugged it, and removed the single screw holding it to the box], took the face plate off [removed 4 or five screws] brushed the squirrel-cage fan blades using a narrow, long and stiff bristled brush, and reassembled it [used care to align the small plastic axle on the flap valve ] and reinstalled it. The vibration was greatly lessened and the fan was about as quiet as it had ever been.

Coin in dryer


The coin is probably rattling against the blower fan. First, unplug the dryer or turn off the main breaker. There are live voltages present inside a dryer even with the power shut off. Then, follow these steps: 1. Take out the lint screen. 2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are a couple of screws under the front. The panel should pull straight down then come off. 3. Remove the blower fan housing. There will be 2 to 3 screws holding it in place. NOTE: If you did not take out your lint screen in STEP 1 you will know why I told you to take it out. The blower fan housing won't come off with the lint screen in place. Once you have the panel off you will be able to access the blower fan, and anything else that as gotten trapped inside the housing. This would be a good time to clean as well. Reassembly in the reverse order of what I just explained to you. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
