Customer Question

Just installed a range hood (model UXT5230BD/UXT5236BD). All completed but there is a power hum coming from the hood even when it is not on. Should there be?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. Sorry to hear you are having appliance trouble, I know how frustrating that can be! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

No, there should be no noise. Are you certain you wired it correctly?

Kelly, I had never heard noises from my previous hood so thought this was not right. I'll have the wiring checked. If that's not it, I'll see if the hood has to be returned. Thanks.

Thank you. Please let me know if I can help.

Kelly did just fine. I still have the problem, but now know I should not be hearing any noise when the hood is "off". I know it seems common sense, but after spending wasted time trying to get answers online and the phone, I just needed to know if I had a problem. Which I now know I do!
