    How could you bleed the air out?

  • simmsa Sep 30, 2008

    Um well to fill it with water you detach the back panel of the unit an there is simply a plastic container with a cap that you fill. I have tried emptying it and refilling it with liquid but there is still an annoying noise coming from the pump almost like a vibration. I think your right though that the there is air in the tubes that is messing it up.

    I have got thermaltake to send me a new pump so well see how that works out...

    I've had the same problem, but found a temporary 'fix' by simply disabling one of the pumps.

    After a few weeks, however, the rattling noise returned with the single pump.

    My thought is that the pump impellers were shoddily manufactured, leading to one being DOA and the other about to follow. I'm planning to replace both pumps with a swiftech MCP355.

Could be air in the system which you would need to bleed out. Either that or a faulty pump.

    I Should've guessed you'd ask something tricky like that. ;)
    The simple answer is that I don't know. That was a guess based on general principals.
    So, still guessing from general principals, I would expect some kind of bleed screw at a high point on the system, possibly with some sort of nipple to attach a pipe.
    In which case, attach a (preferably clear) pipe, top up the reservoir, open the valve until the pipe runs clear of bubbles.

    If that is no help, you tell me how you actually fill it with water, that might give a clue how to be more helpful.

    Good luck.

Fridgeair dishwasher not working making loud sound. water comes in and I can make it drain out but washer does not start


bearings in the heater fan may get worn out or rust. If this happens, it may become very noisy, either grinding on the bearings, or scraping against the rust. If this happens you need to replace the fan motor. Sometimes, a fan blade may come loose, and you need to replace it.
Sometimes it's the motor that makes the noise you hear. The motor has bearings in it which may become worn or get rusty. When the bearings get worn, they allow the shaft to wobble which can get quite loud. If there is a spin seal leak, water may get inside the motor, washing the bearing grease away. If the spin seal is leaking, you'll notice water leaking from under the dishwasher. There is also a disc attached to the top of the motor called a slinger. It sometimes breaks off and spins around the motor's shaft while it turns, causing some noises. You will need to replace the motor if the bearings are bad. You also need to replace the motor if the slinger is broken as well.

Newer dishwashers may make a squealing or rattling noise on the first run. This is because it has not had any water in it yet, and the motor seals are dry. You may hear this in a unit that hasn't been run in a week or more as well. You should operate the dishwasher regularly to keep the sump water from getting smelly, and to keep the seals lubricated. You can add a quart of water to the sump before running it.

Rattling noises may be produced by dishes rattling inside the dishwasher due to the water pressure from the sprayer arms on the dishes. To determine if the rattling is a loading issue, run the unit empty. If the sound is persistent, it may be that there is debris in the pump.

dishwasher water-inlet valves are noted to make a hum that lasts about 60-90 seconds several times during a washing cycle. This hum is a different hum than the sound of the motor running.

A rhythmic knocking or thumping sound may be caused the sprayer arms hitting something as they go around and around. Rearrange the dishes and resume the wash.

A clunking or clanking may be heard when the detergent cup opens; while a clicking sound may be produced by the timer or electronic control panel.

A solenoid makes a snap sound when it opens. This happens about six times during each load.

Pipes rattling or banging may be caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The sound is caused by the water slamming into the closed section of pipe. A plumber can install an anti-hammer device.

Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you'll need to open the pump and then remove the item that is making the noise or replace the pump. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher.

My cooling system is over heating I have flushed the radiator and checked all hoses. The thermostat was replaced about 10 months ago so I think it may be the pump I was just looking for the Na fairlane...

If the car has electric fan(s) for cooling, make sure they are turning on when the engine heats up. Blow out the radiator core with compressed air to get rid of bugs and other debris. Make sure the belt that drives the water pump is tight and in good condition. If the drive belt slips over the pump pully with a squealing noise, that indicates a bad bearing/seal in the pump. Finally, if combustion products are entering the cooling system through a blown head gasket, that can cause severe overheating. There is a chemical test to check for that problem. Hope some of this helps!

New grundig pump is now making a kind of clicking noise. Grundfos ups 15-50 type of pump for central heating system. Only fitted about 3 weeks ago and started of silent now making irritating rattling...

I was ready to pass your question and go to the next person because you said it was making a clicking, and I could not relate or diagnose that type of sound for that kind of pump. Thank God I decided to read to the end where you said rattling sound. that is what you should have said in the beginning.
1st, did you replace the pump cartridge or the whole pump unit? 2nd, is the pump in a different oriented position than the original pump position? The inner cartridge floats inside the pump as it rotates and if it is in an oriented position that allows it to bounce (to & frow) it will make this rattle sound; not serious but can be annoying. It is was a replacement cartridge, perhaps the new gasket and the old gasket are in place, thus allowing too much space for the cartridge and it therfore moves too much and rattles. Or, if it was replaced as a whole new unit. there is a problem with it that you should not be responsible for, except for the positioning orientation. Finally, if there is still too much air in the system, the air bubbles will jossle the cartridge untill you get rid (bleed ou ) the remaining air. Goodluck<Macgivor

Thermaltake Symphony Mini water cooler making annoying rattling sounds!

Check the screws of the fan if it is seated properly. Then check your system unit if it is leveled on the ground. Or it could be dust or rust. You can try oiling up the fan.Open up the sticker of the fan and put little oil in it and put back the sticker. You may need to put extra tape as the oil may hinder the sticker from sticking back to the fan.
