Do You Own a VENT A HOOD Exhaust Hood Over Your Stove??

Git rid of the paint, it's not suppose to be there. I see many like this and like yours the stuff is peeling and falling off ...... so what do the restaurant owner often do?

Repaint it!!...............grr Ever wonder of the accumulation of bacteria in that paint?

Just have it cleaned to bare metal....that's what code (NFPA 96) recommends.

Hope it helps

Oh man where to begin......
Well the weather stripping is doing little...actually it's hindering things. It's letting you ignore the real problem, the fan is vibrating.

Vibrating = Out of balance
Since it was new you should have told the installers to march up and balance the thing. Next time the fan is cleaned have it balanced then.

Also turn fans off before you pull your filters out this will prevent the "grease globs" from being pulled onto the fan, thus causing it to go out of balance. Then wipe the upper track that houses the filters. And of course wipe lower track,and empty drip trays. Then throw cleaned filters back in place.

Hope this helps.
