Question about RCA Scenium D40W20 40" Rear Projection HDTV

Funny noise when TV is on

When we turn the TV on it's making a loud noise. It sounds like the fan is hitting something ( best I can describe it ) when we power the tv down the noise stops. We've pulled the back of the tv off to see if perhaps something was caught in a fan, vacuumed it out but it still makes the sound. We also powered the tv up with the back off to see if we could isolate the sound, seems to be coming from the fan immediately in front of the bulb. Using the vacuum, we got that fan to spin to see if it caused the same sound, but it didn't. Any ideas what it could be?

Dishwasher is making a loud noise


Sounds like there is something in the filter trap that is right before the mini disposal that is a fan blade, on top of the motor.

When turn on blows cold air but makes loud whining noise like rubbing on something. almost a whine sound


sounds like your bearings are out on your fan motor. Some of the older fan motors have places where you can oil the bearings but most newer ones do not. Unless you have a place to oil the bearings and they are not already too far gone you best bet will be to replace the motor. Once the bearings start howling in the way you described it is time to start looking for a replacement. It is also possible (although unlikely) that the noise you hear is (a) the fan blade hitting part of the frame. (b) the bearings in the compressor.

Take and unplug your electrical cord and then take the bottom grate that covers your motors and components off. The are 4 small screws and then it should drop down. Look to see that there are not any wires hitting your fan motors. You can just reach up there and move them around if they are. Some Treagers seem to have some noise until you use them a little. They have a 3 year warrenty, so if the wires are not hitting the fan blades, I would use it and see what happens.

Very loud noise whirling sound


Can you tell me where the sound is coming from? Like inside freezer or under refrigerator. Most sounds like you describe come from a fan motor and the fan blades are hitting something. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
