If you cut the bike off using the kill switch, but left the ignition key turned on, the electric cooling fan behind the radiator will sometimes come on for a little while. Turning off the ignition key will stop the fan.

Screaming noise at high speeds


Sounds like wheel bearings. There just isn't a lot on that bike that increases with speed, it's either wheels or engine. If it's engine- it will make noise in neutral. If it's wheels, it will only make noise while actually moving.

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Model: ARC-14S. Problem: It sounded as if something fell inside the unit while it was operating (cooling) then it started to vibrate horribly. The vibration is only...


Hi,Whynter Portable Air Conditioner has many moving parts, and they all make noise and cause vibrations. Some of these parts are more likely to causing shaking and loud noises, and sometimes this signals a larger problem, something to watch and scrutinize. If serious enough, it calls for a repair.

Loose Parts

Loose parts cause the majority of shaking and vibration noises in your air conditioner. A few of the most common loose parts include the air compressor, the piston rods and even the fan or blower unit itself. These noises are clunking, clanking sounds that occur along with a vibrating action. The only method of repair is a complete compressor replacement, which is a repair only a certified air conditioner technician is qualified to make. The compressor is a fully sealed component, so individual parts in the compressor cannot be repaired.

Fan Blades

Fan blades cause noise, shaking and vibrations even when properly secured. If fan blades contact the exterior structure of the air conditioner due to a bent fan blade or broken and misaligned grate, a constant, repetitive noise and vibration results, which sounds like a ticking or banging from the interior of the air conditioner. Vibration in this case is limited but still present.

Mounting Brackets

When an air conditioner shakes, there is a problem with the mounting brackets. These brackets hold the air conditioner compressor steady as it operates. Normal vibrations and shaking would otherwise occur without these brackets. A loose mounting bracket causes the air conditioner to rock back and forth and creates a clanking sound. As the compressor starts up, this rocking and clanking sound begins, resulting in a very loud and fast vibration and noise. It also occurs when the unit shuts down.

Other Sounds and Vibrations

Sometimes air conditioners squeal, hiss, hum or screech. Each noise is often accompanied by a vibration. Humming sounds along with a vibration may indicate a bad capacitor, the electrical part responsible for starting the machine. Hissing sounds tend to indicate a pressure problem while screeching and squealing sounds are fairly common in window air conditioners and in central air conditioners. This sound is also a result of the compressor motor. It usually starts when the unit turns on and continues through its normal operating cycle. Vibrations always occur in the air conditioner due to moving parts and the compressor motor's operation.


Hope it helped..

Bike takes 2 to3 minutes to warm up .hear a clicking noise and it sounds like a soppy tappet noise after it does warm up.Do 82 goldwings have ajustible tappets


Yes , the Goldwing valves are easily adjusted by taking off the valve covers. On the top left back of the motor is an engine cap that if removed will tell you the top dead center for the cylinders . T-1 position , loose valves on front right cylinder (number 1) TDC compression stroke.

cylinder number intake valve exhaust valve
1 A A
2 B B
3 B A
4 A B

A= Adjust with cylinder 1 at TDC at compression stroke.

B= Adjust with cylinder 1 at TDC at exhaust stroke

Valve tolerance for all valves is 0.004 in ( 0.1 mm) with a feeler gauge

Little noise when bike is off intermitant like a little motor


You already know that it persists. No electric motor will run with the battery disconnected. That is a given. What you need to do is find the motor and find out why it is getting power when it shouldn't. There are 3 possibilities; fuel pump, air pump and cooling fan. Chances are the ignition switch is bad and providing power to the electric motor even when the bike is turned off.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, or it says "Not Available", the part is not in stock.
www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

In the event the part is shown as unavailable, Google " motorcycle salvage honda " and Google " Vintage motorcycle parts ". Chances are you can find what you need there.

Top rating for this solution? Thanks!

MOTOR IS NOISE


Sounds like your motor bearings are going bad. If at all possible lubricate the motor bearings using a few drops of a NON detergent oil. If the motor has sealed bearings with no oil ports then you should replace the blower motor.
Good luck

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter


Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
