Make sure that the four bolts holding the motor bracket are tight. It may be necessary to replace them. Also check your blade height. Keep the tip of the blade about an inch up above the opening. The sheet metal used on these units is too thin. So its easy for the fan to shift around and cause the blade to strike the shroud.
