Probably a slipping belt.  Either overloaded or the belt is drying out.

My kelvinator dryer began to squeak loudly and now it will not run. When I push the start button, there is a sound, but the dryer would not work.

sounds like the barrel has jammed try turning it by hand to see if its jammed if so then it will need to be serviced by a lic tech if the barrel is free turning then i would say it has broken its belt the sqeaky noise would be its bearings wearing out putting the barrel out of alyghnment this too will need replacing

Toilet drains to a certain level every half hour then refills with a sqeaky noise,when flused it makes a very loud sqeaky noise.

May need to replace toilet flapper or entire flush valve. water is getting from the tank into the toilet which is causing this to happen.

My new Brakes Tektro Novela are sqeaky and noisy. What can I do?

A lot of pads are unfortunately. They will become a little better after a few hours of riding as they do "bed-in" a bit but the longer wearing the brake pad is the noisier it will usually be.

Sqeaky fan rotation

Try oiling the pull bearings. If you can determine that the noise is in the motor, try They have replacement motors for your fan for less than $20.

Most probably the bearings heating, which in turn heats the rubber seals and causes the belt to slip.
If there is no noise of metal on metal, you may be able to grease the bearings to get some more life out of them.
Taking the drum out is not an easy job though.
