Hello,

House fan makes a stall sound, like the loudeat bee you ever heard. Any ideas?

Thank you.

I hope you stopped making it sound like a bee. A fire in an attic is often difficult to contain. Take it down and outdoors to check it.

Time for a new fan. If nothing is stuck in it then to just loosen it will be a temp fix.

Thank you all very much. I'll take a look at it outdoors and update after I do. It might be a bit. Thanks!
