Screeching noise when high velocity pedestal fan is turned on

When I turn on the fan, it makes a screeching high pitch noise. The manual states that the motor bearings are permanently sealed and do not require additional lubrication.

    I have the same problem asd lbwilliams12, except that it sceeches on any speed (louder on high, spfter on low). Sounds like something needs to be oiled.

    I have the same screeching noise coming from my Kaz HT-800. The noise continues on all speeds. If the bearings are sealed where could I try lubricating it? Is it even worth taking apart?

Likely the main drum bearing in the back. I have seen these go bad, and loud squeaky noise tells you. You can get a new main bearing and replace. It is in the center of the back of the drum, accessee through back panel of dryer usually.

Sorry for the delay in response. Electrically, there should be no potential hazard since there would be no more "juice" running through the circuitry.

SOURCE: dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.

The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.

The belt is slipping or the compressor and/or clutch is bad.
If the compressor won't turn freely with the engine off, it may be locked up which will make the belt screech.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.
