Well,installed new motor and still a problem. Was sure that was it. The thermal protector still makes the same noise but turned it off before it tripped because i knew what the noise was. So, what else can be the problem? The light did blow out but after in ran a couple times while tripping the thermal switch on the motor. Have checked the heater and it isn't shorted out and the can't really find any shorts. Any help would be appreciated.
I had a downdraft on a cooktop making a horrible noise and tripping breaker once. Turned out it was a new installation and the 110 motor was getting 220v. It had been wired wrong during installation. Point being if it's not a short you are getting 220v to motor and probably light receptacle.
