Customer Question
I have a PanasonicFV11VHL1...

I have a PanasonicFV11VHL1 bathroom heater and it has begun to make a lot of rattling noise. Can you help us fix this? It was just installed less than a year ago.

Contractor's Assistant: How long have you had your PANASONICFV11VHL1?

Less than a year

Contractor's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Just took the white cover off and looked at it to see if there was anything obviously rattling

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

No thank you

It rumbles when the heater first kicks on and then quiets down until the blower starts to run faster then it gets pretty noisy.

Just noticed that it is a FV-11VH1 not the FV-11VHL1 from the pics on the instructions

it comes with a 3 year warranty ............you may want to place a call to them ...........just because on what you described it can be one of a dozen things
