Hissing noise in house

I sure hope you can help me. I have a hissing noise in my house that I have been unable to find in 4 1/2 yrs

The problem is, this noise always starts in the small hours of the morning, say from 2am - 6am. I have been unable to find this noise therefore, I have not had a decent nights rest.
I have a very simple house, septic system is a grinder pump and of course a water meter with pex pipes throughout the house.

Please, I have tried everything and since I live alone, have noone to even spend the night to validate this sound.

There is nothing wrong with my ears. I have excellent hearing.
Please help me find this noise or recommend someone who can.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

To solve this you are going to need to start eliminating things. You say you hearing is good, well just make sure next time you hear the hissing put your fingers in your ears to make sure it goes away. If it doesn't then it is internal i.e you have tinitus.

Next start turning things off at the mains. Your hifi can't hiss if it has no power, so try turning it off at the mains by unplugging it. If it is not your HiFi then start turning other things in your house off. Till you stop it.

Andrew

Have a phiips tv had it in storage for over a year turned it on an the screen working perfectly but there a hising noise coming from the back of it do no what it is... Its a big bk tv not flat screen box...


hissing noise will be from high voltage regulator, i would suggest to do following:

1. switch tv off
2. remove plug from the wall
3. using air blower (compressor attachment - not leaf one!) blow the dust, especially from high voltage box section
4. connect the tv and switch on

if tv still issue hissing noise - follow 1 and 2 then:
3. remove back cover
4. use air blower again...
5. re-install back cover
6. reconnect tv and switch on

if hissing noise persist - check for blown capacitors on high voltage, replace if necessary, they have nasty tendency to pop if they are too long in storage, especially if tehy were overheated or frozen.

hope this will help you solve the problem, do not forget to vote...

Hissing noise horizontal lines


Hello erl, hi.... the hissing noise is usually caused by high voltage arching, but this is suppose to be soft. if the hissing is unusually loud, the high voltage transformer clip cap may be loose, this may cause the horizontal line you see on the screen. take precaution when dealing with this.... here are steps that may help..

1. unplug the unit. allow around 5 minutes for all voltages inside the unit drops to a safe level.
2. open the back cover. place the monitor face down on a table with a dry clean rug or towel.
3. locate the picture tube. on the top side you will see a wire with a cap at the end.
4. use or wear a cloth glove and feel if the cap is loose. re clip the cap and make sure it is secured.
5. replace the back cover.

My refrigerator/freezer making a howling sound and an intermittent whirring sound. I have noticed this at night, not sure if it is doing this during the day.


I have the same model, and the exact same problem. Additionally, the compressor/fan for the freezer cycles up and then down (rising and falling noise pitch) at a frequency of about every 5 seconds. The howling is worse at night(!?). It is 4 yrs old and was in the house we just bought. Help quickly, or this is a CraigsList item.

Thanks

Water heater makes a constant hissing noise with power on or off?


You have a water leak under the house, but need to know if it's a gas heater or electric. check the Pop off valve on top of the tank it has a short handle and should go threw the floor pull up on the valve and let it sit back down, if it stops the high pressure pop off valve is leaking, you can buy it and replace it for 5 or 10 bucks, if that does not stop it look under the house. Also use a broom stick and put the round end at the wall and the other end near your ear and check the wall and floor for the noise the closer you get the louder the sound. Hope this helps. If you look under the house and see water you know you got a leak in the pipes or the tank itself.

2000 Jeep Grand CHerokee has a hissing noise down near the brake pedal. Brakes seem to work but pedal seems to be "softer". Any suggestions? Thanks


There are some solutions for this kind of problems:
1. change your brake fluid (BF). This need to done regularly every three yrs. , at hard condition's every two yrs.
2. check the caliper. It's possible that one of the two pistions inside the caliper don't work properly (mud or rust inside)
3. check if the brake bads can slip free over the anchor, if there are some rust on it, remove them and check the surface, if damaged, replace the part.
4. check the caliper slide pins. If the caliper can not slide, it will stay in contact with the brake disk, this will heat up the bad and disk and make a noise.
5. check your brake booster (vacuum test required). If you switch of the engine, listen if your hear some noises (air leak!).
If all that wont work, come back again.

2002 Mitsubishi Galant ''hissing noise''


I would first try to locate the source of the hissing. Try spraying some engine starting fluid around the hissing area and home in on the source. The engine revs will change as the starting fluid is drawn into the engine. Sounds though more like a vacuum as you have suggested.

Hissing noise


This is mostly caused by the speakers being turned up causing feedback. If you use headphones it should eliminate this problem.
Hope this helps. Bud
