Squeak in concept 2 rowing machine bearing/fan

I get a squeak in what appears to come from the bearing when I pull on the rowing machine handle. There is no squeak while the chain is retracting. How do I get into the bearing shaft to oil/grease the bearing?

Try using some bicycle chain lube or WD40.

Squeaky glide board


Yes indeed.
I have an XLS and it started squeaking, but the glide board is not the source of the squeak on my total gym, to check this try the following, put board to its highest setting then sit on the top of the board facing the machine with your legs over the end. Sit upright so you can see the columb as you pull on the handles.

On my machine as the handles are pulled it causes the chrome arms that that the pulleys are attached to, to flex slightly towards you. This part is lined with a plastic inner piece that
squeaks as the outer flexes.
Its a minor design problem, to fix this you need to stop the flexing. This can be achieved cheaply by a carefully cut piece of wood, functional but doesn't look too flash, or a nicely shaped metal plate painted black or chromed (your choice) drilled onto the face of the chromed slider will do the job, do not do this yourself unless you have some engineering or metalworking skills. Try a block of wood first to verify if that is the problem with your machine.
Keep the tracks clean, a light coat of silicon spray on them and the wheels and bearings also worth trying. If the squeak is from the actual bearings replace with new ones from Hucks.
Good Luck
Pete

After approx a minute a regular squeak begins, occasionally missing a beat.Heating is fine.


If the "frequency" of the squeaking is a low frequency, the I would suspect the turntable motor or stirrer motor (if so equipped).

If it is a higher frequency, I would suspect the cooling fan or hood fan motor.

High squeak when dryer is drying


You don't mention the year make and model of dryer, but most often it is a dry bearing or bushing, or the drum is rubbing on a piece of metal that is supposed to have a nylon glide attached. It would help if you could do a "mechanic's stethoscope" to the machine to help yourself locate the source of the squeak. A "mechanic's stethoscope" is a long screwdriver or the equivalent. You put your ear to the wood or plastic handle and you put the other end in various place on the machine to try to locate the loudest squeal. When you take the whole machine apart, the source of the problem should be readily apparent.
\Be blessed.

Sqeaking when kneading oster 2 loaf bread machine - how to oil?


Hi,
Take out the bread pan and go to a kneading cycle. See if it is squeaking. If yes, then it could be the belt squeaking on the pulley or the motor itself. If it does not squeak when the pan is out, then it's the bread pan paddle and sealed bearing. That sealed bearing is lubed and sealed. It can't be oiled. Hank

Squeak in aloha breeze tower fan model 05538


If the model is equipped with a fan, and the noise occurs even when not oscillating it must be a fan/blower motor. If it is a squeak. A squeal could be an electical component going bad which is always bad. I would definitely take some bottom drawer tools , ie. screwdrivers and WD-40 and oil that squeaking motor. Being a fan it goes through alot of air pollutants. That tends to build up on the shaft and can work its way into the bearing seal. Good luck.

DCXR463GA2WW Squeak


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A REAR DRUM BEARING FAILING. IT IS A SMALL TEFLON BEARING THAT SLIPS ON OVER THE REAR SHAFT OF THE DRUM AND INTO THE HOLE IN THE REAR OF THE DRYER. THERE ARE ALSO FRONT GLIDES THAT SUPPORT THE FRONT OF THE DRYER. OLDER DRYERS HAVE THE FRONT SUPPORTS UNDER THE DRUM SO THE DRUM RESTS ON THEM. NEWER G.E. DRYERS HAVE A PLASTIC RING WITH THREE TEFLON GLIDES ON TOP OF THEM AND THE DRUM HANGS FROM THESE GLIDES. REPLACE ALL OR SOME OF THE ABOVE PARTS TO ELIMINATE YOUR SQUEAK.
ON OTHER POSSIBILITY, THE IDLER PULLEY THAT KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT CAN BECOME A SQUEAK MAKER.
