That clicking sound is normal, its the starter solenoid... not sure if your bike wont start, but if thats the case try charging up your battery, it might be that it just doesnt have enough juice to spin the starter motor

Apache quad


what kind of a small noise? Describe? Is it a click, or a slight fizzle sound? If it is a fizzle sound, make sure none of the earth wires have come off the battery, or poor earth grounding. If it is a click, it could be the start relay/ignition coil. I dont have the model ATV you have, but mine has a small retangled black box, smaller than a pack of matches, if you follow the wires from your ignition coil. hold that and start and feel a click. The relay will send current to your starter. No click, no start. So check the ignitiion coil. Another problem can be a starter continual trying to run - which is a sticky relay.
They are simple things, spark, and fuel, and they run. I think you are having the same problem as I did.. someone before me fitted a kill switch and one of the wires came off the earth there, and it wouldnt start. Mine was under my seat, but it's a chinese quad, so just folllow the wires to the battery and from the battery until it meets the chassis.

JOHN DEERE LT150 WILL NOT START. STARTER MAKES NO NOISE


check the battery first. if the battery is ok sit on seat and turn key, you should hear the solenoid clicking. if not using a testlight check fuses under bonnett,if all ok check that you have power at both starter solenoid heavy wires and one small wire while turning the key.it is advisable to get someone to sit on seat while doing these checks for your safety.There is a start inhibit switch under the seat to prevent engine starting when nobody is siting on seat

My 01 deville makes a funny sound under the dash like a clicking noise untill the back air ride stabilizes is that the air pump going bad?????


I have a 2000 deville dts that was doing
the same thing.The problem was the mode door actuator located behind and to the left of the glove box. There is only one there and it is about a 3"x5" black box. Disconnect the electrical connector, two 5.5 mm screws, a little wiggling and pulling straight out, and it's out.

My BT1100 will not start. Battery is fully charged but pushing the start button I only get a click from under the seat. Have tried jump starting from another bike same result. Any ideas? Thanks


Normally I would say it was dirty terminals, but a jump start should by pass that. Because of the clicking sound, start with the terminals, then try to find your stater motor and try to identify where the sound is actually coming from (ie take the seat off). The solenoid is the next thing that makes that noise, and finally if all else fails, then your starter motor is cactus. I cannot find a manual for you, but have a look yourself, you might find a comparable one that will help you.

I have a two-handle Delta faucet that drips.  With both handles turned completely to off, the faucet drips at a about 1 drip every 15 seconds


sounds like you need to replace the valve seats. if you shut the water off and remove the handles you will see the valves. you have to remove them and under that you should see these little black things. they come out but have springs under them so be careful. the black things are the valve seats. i would start by replacing them

Loud clicking sound


We had the same problem, with a slightly different solution... it turned out in our case that the new toner cartridge's internal drum was too stiff, so the printer was trying to turn the toner spindle and failing, resulting in the clicking noise. Our solution was to manually turn the black center gear by hand a few times, and in doing so loosen the drum up a little, so that the printer could turn it. We put it back into the printer, and voila! No more clicking noise.
Thanks to whitehorse1 for his (or her) solution... though it wasn't the exact same problem for us, it was what put us on the right track. :)

Samsung 3160fn all in one printer. making loud clicking noise when printing


Here's what I posted in regards to my CLP 300 which had the same problem. Might be the same thing??...
...
Mine did this after I replaced a toner cartridge (the round ones). Here's what causes the loud clicking:
Some (most?) replacement ink cartridges have a little square chip -- like a mini circuit board -- on them which gives the printer information about how full they are. This is located on the insertion end, right next to the round black thing with the little gears on it.
For the cartridge to go in all the way, and allow the gears to properly "seat," the square "circuit board" needs to "float" just a little on the spongy thing it's attached to. So when you push the cartridge in FIRMLY, the gears seat, and the "circuit board" will end up getting pushed in about 1/16 of an inch.
I think what happens in some cases (at least with mine) is some cheap replacement cartridges don't let the "circuit board" push in at all, which means the gears don't quite seat properly, and, as they are trying to connect on the printer's gear receivers, they are constantly connecting and disconnecting, causing that loud clicking noise.
On one cartridge just pushing in the "circuit board" really hard freed it up and allowed it to "float" (be pushed in little when the cartridge was then inserted). In another case, I ended up getting a butterknife and prying off the circuit board (breaking the plastic or glue seal that was holding it) then setting back in, on top of the little spongy sticky thing it's supposed to float on.
In both cases, the cartridges were then able to go in all the way, and the clicking noise stopped.
Hope this helps!
;-)

PLEASE HELP!!


I had this same "loud clicking" issue after I replaced my first toner cartridge. The magenta ran out, I ordered from a discount online store, installed it, then had the clicking problem while printing (though the print quality seemed ok). I compared the old, empty cartridge that came with the printer the new one, and found them identical except the new one had a little square transistor board on the surface that is inserted into the printer, next to the round, black thing, which I think are gears... like a little round black flywheel. I noticed the old, empty cartridge had no such board, but just a square hole instead. What was happening was this little circuit board wasn't letting me push the cartridge in far enough to allow the “flywheel” to fully connect (or at least they couldn't connect without continually disconnecting too, which was causing the loud clicking noise). So I got a little knife and pried off the circuit board, and then took out this little grey, spongy, sticky thing under it. I reinserted the cartridge and noticed it slid in just a little bit more (maybe 1/8 in. more). But then the printer didn't register I had a magenta cartridge, so it wouldn't print anything for me! So I put the spongy thing back in, then the circuit board. But when I put the circuit board back in, I pressed it in about an 1/8 in. past being flush with the plastic it was resting on before... so about 1/8 in. past where it originally was. So, now, instead of being stuck, flush with the plastic, it sort of floats on this spongy thing and goes in slightly when you push on it with your finger, creating a small, square hole like the original cartridge I examined. Perhaps this is how it's supposed to be but it had a manufacturing defect. Anyway, I reinserted it again and it slid in just a bit further than originally. It works fine. No more clicking noise while printing! So obviously the little black gears are now firmly in place. Hope this helps.
