Quick fix for range hood. Works great.

Here is a trick to try if your kitchen exaust fans or other electric motors start giving you problems. The bearings in my kitchen range hood started making terrible noise. The overhead exaust fan motor was the problem. Thought I might have to replace the motor. However I took the grease filter out which exposed the fan and motor. I loosened the mounted bolts and took the motor out. I saturated the bearings on both ends of the motor with WD 40. Then I packed lithium grease over it to hold the lubrication in place. Fan reinstalled I turned the power back on and let the fan run for 30 minutes to allow the lubrication to absorb deep into the bearings. Runs as good as a new now!! The grease is long lasting so I will not have to ever replace the motor. An old trick I use to fix noisy electric motors. Works great.
