Hampton Bay 249872

Unit makes noise like timer or geiger counter when under power but no functions in use.  Properly wired with 3 pole switch and everything works fine but the annoying noise.  Any ideas?

Hey Cram,


Thank you for joining us here on the community!


Given the SKU number that you gave us, I'm assuming that the item you are wanting to troubleshoot is the Hampton Bay Vent Fan shown and linked below yes?

I've included the installation instructions here so you can view it, specifically page 10. On that page, it gives you a specific diagram for wiring up everything to a 3-pole switch (AKA 3 function single pole switch).


You should have only one black, white, and ground coming in to the light. Once you connect everything as shown in the install diagram, you should have everything working in proper order.


Unless you have improper wiring or another switch that controls the fans (3-way), this should work for you.


Please update us on your progress, and I hope this information has assisted you.
