HEATER MAKING LOUD NOISES

My heater started making very loud whirring noises tonight. I quickly shut it off, and once the burners went out, the noise stopped (blower was still going). I waited a few minutes and turned it back on. Once the burners started going, the noise was back but was intermittent. Dad thought it was a belt slipping? Any ideas? I can't run it due to the noise, and it's cold tonight, so any help would be appreciated!!

    I called a guy out and he initially thought it was the bearings going bad, but he was baffled because when he first turned the unit back (it had been off for 12 hours) it made the noise, but he kept running it and the noise never came back. So for now, there's nothing to do. He told me to take note of the noise and when it happens. Thanks!!

    The noise was a loud clanking noise and I was told that inducer motor squirrel cage was loose. At first he thought there was debris but he did not confirm that. He went to his truck and came back with a screw. Put it all back together and left. Five hours later the noise started again. It is late at night and no one will come until morning. In speaking with another company I was told that the squirrel cage cannot be repaired but must be replace. Any information? Thanks. My unit is hot air gas furnese - a Trane.

    I have a new carrier infinity furnace, just 8 weeks old. I have had the service man here 4 times, because the exhaust fan had such a loud whirring noise. When the exhaust fan shuts down, (and the blower fan is still running), the noise stops. The service man has changed the exhaust fan already, but does not know what the problem is. It is the most annoying sound and it carries right up to the second floor. Anyone know any answers, other than getting yet another new furnace???

Check the draft inducer motor for any partial blockages or dibri.

I've seen sticks, birds nest particles and pieces of deteriorating fan blades (squirrel cage type fans) cause this.

You might also find that the inducer motors bearing are going.

If its a loud vibrating grinding type noise, I'd suspect bearings or missing pieces of the blades. (unbalanced)
If it's a clanking type noise I'd suspect loose items hitting the fan.

The inducer motor will only operate right before and during burner operation, while the blower motor can operate at any time depending on your setting.

Our central heater in our home blower fan just started making a loud noise. if it does stop are there concerns for carbon monoxide poisoning due to no fan running?


It should not. The burner heats a manifold and air is drawn thru the hot manifold to warm the air. As long as the manifold Is in good shape, no co2 will contaminate the warmed air. However, if the fan does not blow air over the manifold, the the thermal fuse will be blown and stop the heater from working at all. Fan noise is not good. Get professional help asap

Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer MOD WED5600XW0 making whirring noise


take the bottom panel off,you'll see a metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,there's a blower wheel behind the duct,if the wheel cracks or gets loose where it connects to the motor shaft it can make this sound,start the dryer and listen to see if the noise comes from there.if you can't tell unplug the dryer,pull out the lint filter and then take out the screws that hold the metal duct in place and remove it,now you can see the blower wheel,spin the drum by hand and see if the blower wheel moves with the drum and belt.if it looks fine stop spinning it and grab the wheel and see if it feels loose,if it is you will be able to tell.also while you have the duct off clean it out,you should take it off at least once a year and clean it out,then vac out the cabinet and blow out your vent line with a leaf blower if it's long,just remove it from the back of the dryer,stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.go outside first and make sure the outside duct is clear,no cage or anything that will block the lint from blowing outside.if the blower wheel is ok then the noise could be the belt roller or belt pulley,thety sell a kit with all the parts together but usually when someone says it's making a whirring sound it most likely is the blower wheel.hope this helps.

When the burners ignite, within one minute it starts making a loud banging noise and then the HS code comes on and it shuts down. the noise continues for about 15 to 30 seconds after the burners shut...


This sounds like a low water flow situation. The heater is telling you that the high limit sensor is curring heater operation. The noises are the heat exchangers boiling the water either due to a blockage in the exchanger , a bad mixing vlve, or most likely poor water flow. This is tough to troubleshoot through a posting like this, but 1st thing is 1st. Check your water flow and make sure it is minimum 50 Gallons per minute.

New Rheem Fury Guardian System 50 gal water heater model 42V50-40F. Loud low humming or drone sound when in operation. What can this be?


Hi,
Is the noise when the water is running or when the burner is running???

If it is just the water then the noise often is the flow checks inside the tubes going to and from the heater...

If it is the burner, then the noise could be the gas going through the gas valve...a bit of moisture or dirt can sometimes cause noises...usulally will correct its self after a bit of time...no worry...

poping crackling sounds and such are common with mineral builsup in the bottom of the heater....
Flush the heater and get the dirt out....

sizzling noises sometimes happen from condensation dripping onto the burner....gain not a problem...

sometimes the gas properties will cause the gas to make noises when going through the gas orifice into the burner... usually this is air or a LP air mixture known as "citigas" that will burn like natural gas but really isn't and it will make noises such as your are describing...again no problem...

Ultimately the noise you hear is not a problem but can be irritaing if the heater is where you can hear it easily...

Feel free to comment back if you have any more questions...
