    The range hood is extremely loud, and has been ever since it was bought. Has anyone tried retrofitting in a quieter squirrel cage?

How do i fix a noisy range hood?


IT THE NOISE COMING FROM THE FAN RUNNING? IF IT IS YOU NEED TO CHECK THE SCREW THAT ;ATTACHES THE FAN BLADES TO THE SHAFT. IT COULD BE LOOSE. ALSO CHECK THE SHAFT TO SEE IF IT IS WORN AND MOVES FROM SIDE TO SIDE. IF IT DOES YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE MOTOR.

Noisy fan or motor?


HI. The most common issue here will be with a loose motor shaft. This is the part that the fan blades are mounted on. When this occurs, the looseness will cause the motor, and shaft to wobble, thus, causing this noise you here at high speeds. The wobble is less violent during the slower speeds, so it is not loud, in this case.

The second issue will be a warped fan blade. This will cause the fan to rub against the shroud, thus, creating the noise, as well.

If the shaft is loose, or bent, the entire motor will need to be replaced. Now, if the fan blade is warped, you can, simply, unscrew the blade from the shaft, and replace it(on most model)

The exhaust hood of my restaurant is very noisy. The problem started 2 months ago.


I would first clean the hood throuoghly, and then check the bearing on the fan, also check if the fan blades are bent.

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.

Motor


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.
