I hear noises in my kitchen stove fan?

The chances you may be hearing noises is very likely due to the fact that a squirrel has chewed your side vent and is nesting your stove fan. Other times it may be that the ventilation covers are broken or chewed by squirrels. In any case, once a vent cover is damaged, birds or squirrels can take up shelter in them. If you’re having trouble figuring out what type of noise you are hearing, there is a good guide here that can give you an idea. Always make sure that weather is not a factor in noises. Paying a company inspection fee on a panic and uneducated hunch can be disappointing.

If you’re not sure, a good way to avoid this is by tuning in regularly and making sure the noises persist for 2 or 3 consecutive days. Animals which nest in a given location, tend to always retire there daily.
