Question about Broan-NuTone N-QT9093WH Combination Heater Heater Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Should I buy a new exhaust fan or try to fix old one?

The fan motor is very loud in this unit. We bought the house six months ago and it seems to be getting worse. We have the same one in the kids' bathroom so I know it isn't supposed to sound this bad. Can I replace just the fan/vent motor or should I just buy a new one? I found one for under $250 in white, ours has the brass ring, but I don't really care about that. I'm thinking if I do replace it I should buy the same one though so I don't need to cut a new whole or do repairs. Any thoughts? I did take off the exterior and look for vibrations, but it seems to be in there sturdy.

    they sell motors for it
    the manual for this vent is clear as day
    what the fan motor p/n is.
    if its blocked or dirty clean the fan
    a fan with junk on one side is imbalanced and will make noise
    a fan blade,,missing cracked or bent will make noise. replace it.
    the motor can be bad. and make noise.

    the vent on top can be blocked making the fan be overloaded and makes noise, clean that.

    here we go, a simple search.

    no lack of fans sold ever.
    buy one put it in, its super easy job.

    in almost every case, no need ever to rip out the whole fan assembly, and pay $300 for the fan and $100 labor.
    just unplug it , unscrew it and replace it.

    with the blade off, them motor is $60
    the blade is.$13 whole bucks.
    if the blade is not broken buy just a motor.
    (it's just a fan)

If the air flow in the duct is restricted, that can cause excess noise also.

This fan in the picture below I bought it less than six months ago and it stop working already. I notice the motor is a bit hot.

I think I answered you in another post. You plug it in, it doesn't turn and the motor feels hot? A hot motor isn't necessarily a problem, but if it's not turning and very hot, you probably need to replace the capacitor or the switch is somehow burned out. I would take it back to the store and just get a replacement.

Loud running motor

I think its best you replace the fan, its probably at the end of its life and starting to make more and more noise. This happens alot in computers if the fans are poor quality.

Dear Support Manager, I bought a comfort zone steel fan less than six months ago and it stop working already. I notice the motor is a bit hot. Model #czhvp18ex

I'm not the support manager you speak of, but spray some oil into the bearings/bushings on each end of the shaft to lubricate it and it will work fine. The motor gets hot because the bearings/bushings have no lubrication. You have to do this once in a while to make sure it doesn't seize up.

Refrigerator was bought 5yrs ago(brand new)it worked perfectly until then....put it in storage 4 six months...when i moved it into my house i plugged it up...can hear it on but yet to get cold....left it...

Is your fridge compressor motor working and can you hear it turn on and off every hour or so. Not to be confused with the sound coming from the fan inside the fridge.
If the motor is working but neither the fridge or freezer compartment are getting cold, then there may have been a rupture during transport and gas has escaped.

Whiring fan, very loud,last night now no sound and the temp is rising

That is usually the evaporator fan motor ($30).
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
Unplug fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

If compressor is running then unit has a sealed system issue- throw it away unless still under wty. If comp not running then probably bad relay on it. Only way to check is to replace relay. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Loud noise from the freezer side

The problem is a buildup of ice on the plastic housing (the curved plastic bit) in the back of the freezer under the fixed shelf where the icetub goes. The fan behind this plastic housing is hitting the ice when the defrost comes on.

Unplug the fridge, unpack the freezer, remove the four screws in the back, take off the sheetmetal backing and let the fridge thaw. You can remove the plastic piece after a while and get the ice off (be careful not to remove the styrofoam insulation by going too quickly).

Reassemble and you're back in business, for a few months. I'm never buying Samsung again myself.
