Question about KitchenAid KWCU205HSS Kitchen Hood
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.
