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...

Loud buzzing sound


That sounds like the starter motor solenoid chattering. This can happen when the battery is nearly dead and has only enough charge to repeatedly pull down the solenoid. Get someone to operate the key while you listen to the starter via a long screwdriver shaft or similar.

I don't know what the acetone smell could be. Another source here has mention a refrigerant leak from the A/C, but it is a guess.

The fans on this microwave will automatically turn on when I have more than one burner on the gas range going. The fan is horrendously loud and will not allow me to shut off for 2-3 minutes regardless if I...


That's typically normal operation. The microwave has a thermostat which turns on the hood vent exhaust fan at a certain temperature to protect the controller.

Your owner's manual will cover vent fan operation.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

If - above and beyond this - the fan has a problem, that could make it excessively loud. Some are just loud though, it's hard to judge without actually hearing it.

You can contact Whirlpool customer service with your model number via that link above and ask them about the loudness. They may be able to tell by listening over the phone if it's abnormally loud.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

02 Durango: loud engine/exhaust sound. Also Recently noticed the cooling fan running more than normal; had someone check the antifreeze/coolant....it was empty....had them put in a 50/50mix of coolant and...


That noise is probably the air injection system which is part of the emmision system. When it is making that noise, open the hood and determine where it is coming from, note if it is a mechanical sound, etc. The air injection if equiped would sound almost like forced air scaping somewhat like an exhaust leak, but less intense.
