Could be as simple as a loose wire on the main board or surrounding electrical. Could be the start capacitor.

The AC makes a humming sound when starting the fan. If I spin it by hand it runs. Model 620315.321 serial 90716722.


The humming sound is the motor trying to start, if you turn it by hand, usually they will run. it sounds like the motor for fan needs cleaning and oiling. God-Bless ya all!

Ksb50b3 doesn't turn on hums


Does the blade turn by hand? Does the motor turn by hand? The answers to both those questions may point you in the right direction. If both turn freely I would suspect you need a new motor.

usually the humming sound is coming from the motor,try this,open the door,turn the drum with one hand and hold the door switch in with your other hand and have someone else push the start button at the same time,this might help the motor turn on but if it does you need a new motor,if you can't turn the drum you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or something jammed in the motor like a broken belt but like i said a humming sound is usually the motor.

My 230 bernina does'nt move when I press the foot switch, just humming.


Sounds like the motor is either frozen or the machine is frozen. Humming means the motor is trying to turn. Is there an external hand wheel which will allow turning the machine by hand? If the machine has been in storage for a long time, the lubrication can become 'glue-like' causing difficult turning. This may require a trip to a service shop--hope this helps!

I have an older whirlpool dryer when you turn it on it hums but doesn't spin.


Three possibles here:

1) The motor is running but the belt is broken not allowing the drum to turn.

Try to turn the drum by hand and see if it rotates very freely and takes a while to stop. if so, your belt is broken. If it feels like there is a good deal of resistance on the drum and stops as soon as you let go, your belt is functional.

2) Something is stuck (probably in the blower wheel) not allowing the motor to start up. If as you attempted to rotate the drum in #1 above it did not turn at all, this and #3 below are possible.

You'll need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower wheel and verify it's clear.

3) Motor is bad (common with older well used dryers) and needs to be replaced. This may also cause the drum to be locked as above.

That's all I can think of that will cause the motor humming but not having the drum to spin.

Pump just hums but wont start


Sounds like its frozen and causing a very heavy load on your circuit. If the motor gets hot within seconds, its shot and needs replacing. Have you attempted to turn the motor over by hand ?

Hayward above ground pool pump will not start.


sounds like the windings in the motor are shot! but does it have a capacitor? if it does you could simply have a bad starting capacitor so don't let it hum for that will surely scar the windings

Dryer motor just hums


Sounds like the belt has been stretched and is not letting the motor turn the drum. If the motor is not turning at all then your motor is burnt out and needs ot be replaced

if the motor doesn't run sounds like you either have a bad motor or your motor armature might have gotten wet and created a dead spot.if you have any contact cleaner spray a little on the armature then turn the motor by hand make sure its uuplugged first if you can turn the motor then plug it in and try to start it
