Yes its possible that motor is got dried internally.There is grease in the motor and other parts to make it run fluently, when this grease gets dried out then internal motor and and other motor connected parts gets hard.So it makes noise when it starts, but once it gets flow, the noise gets slow or goes away.But this can cause the motor to get shorted out and even its possible that motor is got weak and needs to be replaced.You will have to disassemble the hood unit and visually inspect the motor,.If it looks very dirty and worn out.Its external body got burned/ rusted then it needs to be replaced.But it only looks dried out then you can lube the internal motor parts by applying motor grease.-------- the noise can also occur from fan motor or jammed fan blades.That also too has to be inspected.-------- For that you will need disassembly diagrams:---- click this link below for hood disassembly:--- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Range-hood-Parts/Model-KWCU205HSS0/0593/0122400/O2029119/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= ------------- Click this link below for vent disassembly:--- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Range-hood-Parts/Model-KWCU205HSS0/0593/0122400/O2029119/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= --------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Fan is not working but makes a humming noise at lower speeds and clanking noise at highest speed. When last working there was the clanking noise when I turned off the fan. Please help.


Then turn it off immediately just to be safe that nothing will be broken, can you see the interior? Is there anything broken or loose that might cause the noize? If yes remove.
If not try to clean it with a little cloth or anything, maybe it is too dusty.

Ge monogram fan dying slow death...first hi-spd. only, now only humming, lights work...is it fuse, transformer or worse, blower assembly


My best guess is the blower motor is going out -- probably the bearings. You might be able to replace just the motor excluding the propeller or the squirrel cage as the case maybe.

I bought a used over the range microwave oven( kenmore) I would like to know how to install it knowing there is an opening to the roof. thank you


Most Kenmore microhoods use a 3" by 10" exhaust duct. Check for correct demensions. Make sure that the existing vent is this size or that you have room to adapt to this size. There should be a damper mounted to the top of the micro which will attach to the vent duct work. You will need an outlet in the cabinet above the micohood. This should be on a circuit of it's own. The microhood should have a wall plate for the back wall. I'm going to assume there are no templates available. Hold the wall plate against the back of the micro to determine the height placement in the opening. Most install centered under and against the cabinet above. Not all do, so this will confirm. Mount the wall plate to the existing wall studs with at least 1/4" by 2-1/2" lag bolts. Bore an 1-1/4" hole in the right rear corner of the cabinet above, about 2" out from the back of the cabinet and 2" in from the side, this is not a critical measurement, it is to pass the electric cord into the upper cabinet. There are two screws that support the front of the hood. I believe they are 1/4" by 3-1/2" long. If not included, check for size. The hardwae will have them, get flat washers to fit both also. Measure from the back of the micro to the mounting holes in the top of the micro, include the wall plate in this measurement, they'll be about 10" out from the back and about 1-1/2" in from the edge, near the front, but check that measurement, they vary. Drill 3/8" holes in the bottom of the cabinet at these locations. If doing this alone, best that you move the range out. It's nice to have a helper at lifting time. With the plate on the wall and the holes in the bottom of the cabinet, your ready. Put the 1/4" screws and someting to drive them in the upper cabinet, so they'll be available. Lift the micro into the opening with the front tilted downward, hook the back of it into the bottom of the wall plate, push the cord into the upper cabinet, tilt the front of the micro up until you can start the front support screws. Start both, don't let go of the micro until you are sure that both screws are started and will support the front weight. Once you're sure, tighten both screws all the way and connect the vent. Steel tape is best for sealing up any leaks. Power up the outlet, plug in the microhood and put in the popcorn. Get a good movie and enjoy in your accomplishment. Congrats. PS: Make sure the roof vent opens when the hood is turned on, I have seen them stuck shut from grease build-up.

There is no kit to make this conversion. That being said, you could get an estimate from a sheet metal fabrication shop on creating the conversion you are seeking.

Good luck with it.
