Range vent hood motor hums

Common solutions for: Range vent hood motor hums

01 - Blower Motor
Usually, when the blower motor hums but does not turn, it indicates that the motor shaft bearings are worn out. Some older, larger motors have oil spouts. If your motor has oil spouts, try adding oil to the motor bearings to get the fan to turn freely. If lubricating the motor bearings does not solve the problem, or if the motor can’t be lubricated, replace the blower motor.
