Sounds like the brushes on the motor are bad. Sorry, but this is not repairable. It could also be that the motor is not secured to it's support housing, but I would have to see it in person to make this determination. Electric leaf blowers are not made to be repaired, because it's usually cheaper to buy a new one. I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear. However.....since it is probably junked anyway, it's not going to hurt one bit to try and take it apart and tinker with it to see if there is an obvious problem. Just pay attention to how it comes apart, in case you want to put it back together. Hope this helps,

Chad

My dewalt D55146 makes loud leaf blower noise, has a burning smell and doesnt build pressure


This compressor is belt driven. When the belt fails the motor will run faster than normal and takes longer to stop turning. When belt is in place and the motor is shut off, the motor will stop almost instantly. If the belt is slipping, you will smell rubber burning (you will need to change the belt anyway). It is my opinion that the belt fails because the cut-off pressure is much to high (200psi). The belt will last longer is the pressure switch cut-out at a normal 125psi. If the discharge tube (tube from pump head to tank or in-tank check valve) or other parts are leaking, it will take much longer to fill and cause over-heating. You can keep track of the condition of the compressor internal parts by knowing how long it takes to fill the tank when new compared to how long it takes now. As parts wear, the unit will take longer to fill. Go to the dealer and time a new unit then test yours against this time period. Do not use an extension cord on this size compressor. Use more hose instead. If you are having trouble filling the tires because of low pressure in the hose, try experiment. Remove the safety valve from the compressor and install a tee fitting. One one port of the tee, reinstall the safety valve. On the second port install a quickconnect fitting. This will give you access to full tank pressure bypassing the regulator to quick fill your tractor tire. This trick is how the tire shop quickly fills a tire. Use caution and do not overfill your tire. Good luck

Loud banding noise in my LG Tromm DLE7177


Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

When i turn my heater on (and also the ac) it makes a loud humming noise. as i turn it higher the noise gets louder. I have a 2001 chevy trailblazer.


It is possible that a stray leaf or piece of debris is stuck in the blower fan blades. This is more likely if the noise began suddenly. You will have to access the blower and remove it to inspect the blades. If their isn't an obvious debris problem, the blower fan bearing may be wearing out and getting noisy; although this noise would slowly get worse and worse every day.

My toro blower stopped working after only 10 minutes


Hi, normally when an electric motor smells of burning the damage is done, if it's new you need to get it fixed under warranty, trying to repair it yourself will void warranty

Mower will not start. Makes a loud fast clicking noise when the key is turned.


Loud ticking usually indicates near dead battery, take it out and charge it. If it still ticks you may need to replace it as they are only good for a few years.
