Sorry to hear the break in run or lube didn't fix it Scott. In that case it's probably the motor bearing, which means a motor replacement. Good news is Airexcel should be able to get you squared away.

We have had some noise, I would say, usually at 30, with 10 or 20 usually fine. Seems we have some noise once in a while on something other than 30, and often 30 is fine. We can always use either 10 or 20 or 30 for low. Only one will be a problem at any one time.

Just got off the phone with a Airxcel technician, he reaffirmed that you need to run the Maxxfan on high for 24 hours to seat the bearings. The good news is, I have a new motor in the mail. Good company to work with. Scott

It's a sealed bearing fan so no lubrication is supposed to be required. Get in touch with Airxcel. They are really good with replacement parts and standing behind their products.
