Whispaire - Fan stopped working

Hello - My Whispaire was running the other night (light and fan) when the fan just stopped running. The lights still work. I checked the wiring per instructions but still didn't do it. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem here. My lights still work on my 6500 but the fan just stopped. if this is a fan motor problem, Can I replace the fan motor myself? Is this a common problem that can only be resolved with a complete replacement of unit? Anyone help please?

You would definetly be able to replace the motor yourself, if your a handy person.

1. You must take off the blade before starting which is only held on by pressure and a mini little metal clip at the tip of shaft.

2. Motor bracket is held on by 4 star/phillips headed screws, two are located under the metal plate the retains all the wires on the right side, and two located on the left side of motor housing.

3. The motor is wired with a plastic connector (plug in plug out). Once motor bracket has been unscrewed and removed there is 4 star/phillips screws holding the motor on the bracket.

Restart proceedure to install the new motor. Part #K7448-000

Nutone range hood fan motor quit


You can remove it and bench test it by applying 120 volts to the fan leads. Do you know how to do this -- it can be dangerous if not done properly.

You can also use a voltmeter to measure resistance and check continuity of the motor coils.

Extremely likely the fan motor.  get to it then , after removing fan blade,plug it in directly to a 110v  outlet ,just for a second to see if it works well( don;t touch it while prefoming this test,only the plug), or jumper out the switch(with electric disconnected) momentairly to see if the fan runs after turning the electric back on.

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.

Replace Fan Motor
Product Label Says Not To Lubricate Bearings Because they
are permanently Lubricated. However, the bearing are actually gimbal mounted and held in place by a Flimsy Retaining Plate.
Lubrication will only evaporate under oven use due to the rising Heat.
