You are probably hearing the faint buzz of a transformer on the control board of the range hood. Since the range hood is working properly, this is likely normal.

Hello All, We just purchased this Kenmore elite hood and are having the same buzzing issue when it is turned off. Is there really no way to fix this? It doesn't seem normal for a high-end appliance to do something like this. Thanks! Zach

I have had the same problem with my new Kenmore range hood. I have solved the problem, I think. I removed the light bulbs the two filters and the fan cover (two screws). Near the front of the hood, toward the right side is a small transformer. I removed the two screws that attach it to the internal metal framework and just let it hang. There was no buzzing. Then I got some industrial strength velcro at Home Depot, cut a piece about 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches and attached it to the metal frame. Another smaller piece of velcro attached to the transformer and the transformer was now attached near to where it was before. No buzzing! I did all this with the power disconnected for safety.

DITTO ! Same Problem. It definitely is the vibration from the small transformer mounted on the metal causing a vibration. If you remove the light housing plate you will be able to remove the 2 small screws from the small transformer (approx 1"x 1"). I used 2 very small rubber o-rings behind the mounting bracket and reinstalled with original screws. Worked like a charm ! VIBRATION IS GONE!!!

Q:

Kenmore Elite Range Hood Model 55023

A:

I can understand your confusion over this clicking sound you're hearing from your hood.  Have your tried turning the breaker off to the unit for at least 5 minutes?
This action will reboot your unit back to it's factory settings and may reset the relay that might be sticking.  I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail. 
Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction.  If you feel you would need further assistance,  or if you feel like you would be more comfortable

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. At first, I thought it might be a bird or other animal that was in your exhaust vent. This can happen if your exhaust vent on the roof is not screened in properly. You may be hearing the faint buzz of a transformer on the control board of the range hood. Since the range hood is working properly, this is likely normal.

 If you have any follow-up questions, please continue our conversation on this existing thread.

Thanks again for choosing ManageMyLife.com

Hi, James: I tried doing what Henry suggested by turning off the breaker for 5 minutes and that didn't work. The vent is not on the roof so it's not a bird! It's not a faint buzzing but more of a clicking sound. When it happens, it does it for a couple of minutes and then stops. It sounds similar to the constant clicking of a switch not a buzzing. Any more thoughts, pls? Thanks.

A:

The noise you hear may be the contacts clicking inside the switches. This is a normal sound. The newer ranges seem to have a more pronounced clicking than the older models did. The clicking noise could also be caused by a loose wiring connection on the terminal block on the back of your range. This should be done by a technician if needed.

Your response talks about a range. The clicking sound that we are hearing is in the front of the hood, which is a different product than the range. Pls advise and thanks.

You are right. This is a range hood. The parts I would consider to be a possible source of noise would be the fan or blower assembly. Is this a non-ducted installation? If so, do you know if the required performance ring was attached to the blower wheel. I provided the installation guide in the link below that will address this in detail. I also would suspect any backdraft damper that could be clicking due to wind. I will be off for a couple of days but I will be back Tuesday.
