Sounds serious, but good that you have compression. Can you remove the head? If yes, you can get a look at the cylinder walls.
Hard to diagnose without disassembly.

My dryer was making a loud squeeking noise while drying, now it won't start, I can hear it trying purring but than it does not start, help!


if you can hear the motor running,and if this unit does not have a belt shut off switch,the motor will run even if the belt is broken,the squeaking noise earlier was probably the belt starting to slip on the drum,replace the belt and drum glides when repairing,they are relatively inexpensive and as long as its torn down replace these too

remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.

The refrigerator keeps making a loud buzzing noise. It is not the ice maker filling up with water. The noise runs for about 5-10 seconds every hour or so.


Sounds like your starting components are bad on the compressor. If the freezer section begins to loose temp then this is probably the case. They will try to start the compressor and then it will kick off on its overload. However this will usually occur every 10-15 mins when they are completely toasted. Your compressor may be starting up part of the time and not starting the rest. Either way you will probably need new starting components on the compressor. You could also check to make sure your condenser fan motor is running (in the back of the ref behind the access panel) because this could cause the compressor to overheat but usually wont cause a buzzing noise.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Trouble starting on warm starts sometimes.


This really sounds like a need to replace the intake gaskets. When the bike warms up the gaskets loose their seal leading to a lean condition that makes it almost impossible to start, until bike cools down. Gaskets are cheap, this would be my first place to begin. Hope this helps.

Engine knocking problem,no start even with kick,kick becomes free


yea it sounds like the compression is down could be the rings or barrel wear or leaking head worst is lower end bearing this is most probable due to the banging noise think engine needs overhaul by a good mechanic
