Won't start but makes a whining noise

when you press the start button does it make a noise like emm like the motor is stuck?or all you can hear is the timer ticking?if it's the first it's the motor and you can try this,open the door,hold the door switch in with one hand and with the other spin the drum as someone else pushes in the start button,if it runs you have a bad motor,if you can't move the drum you could have somwthing stuck in the blower wheel but it will be the motor making the noise,if it's the timer you hear most likely the dryer needs to be cleaned out and also the vent line,then with a meter check the thermostats on the heater box 279816 is the part number you'll need if you already changed out the thermal fuse 3392519.if you don't find the block either in the metal duct that the lint filter slides into or in the vent line the thermostat will keep popping,it's a safety along with the thermal fuse when the dryer runs to hot one of them will pop as a safety because the dryer is running to hot usuaaly because the air isn't moving good from lint blocking unplug the dryer,you have the lint filter on top so all your parts are in the back,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line and the back panel,now remove the lint filter and the two phillips screws in front of it on the top panel,go in the back and on the left side remove the 4 screws that hold the metal duct in,clean out the duct and blow out and vac up any lint in the back,put it back together,now go to the right side,pull off at least one wire and check the top thermostat on the heater box,set you meter to say 20k ohms,you should see 1 on the meter,touch the leeds together,the 1 should be replaced with anything but 1,now touch the leeds to the part you're checking,if the 1 is there the part is bad or open,if any other reading the part is good or closed,also where you installed the thermal fuse you'll see the cycling thermostat next to it,pull it out and check the back of it,if you use cling free sheets it usually gets stuck on the back,clean it off with a steel brush or lightly sand it,if the cycling thermostat is bad the dryer can run hot get a leaf blower and stick it in the vent line and blow it out to the outside,go outside first and make sure nothing is blocking the outside duct like a cage or screen,if so remove it first then blow it. go here to clean out the inside
hope this helps,if you need anything else let me know and don't self clean your oven till after the holidays,been getting alot of calls for this,when self cleaning it can damage the oven and if you have to order a clck assy. or something you might not get it before thanksgiving,have a great holiday.

My quiet bathroom fan makes a roaring noise

The roaring noise is probably the fan blades (looks like a hamster wheel) are worn out as it rotates on the spindle/shaft.

It may be a problem with the 4" exhaust ducting, that connects to the exit part of the fan, has come loose. Theres a damper (kinda like a flapper) at the fan/ducting joint may have broken off and may be sitting sideways in the ducting flapping around inside the duct.

At any rate I highly doubt its wiring. Sounds like its time to pull the fan cover off (turn the power off first via the wall switch or the service panel breaker would be even better) and look at the fan blades. Clean off any dust bunnies, lint, etc. and turn the fan back on. Did the noise stop?

If nothing looks out of place and it still makes noise you'll have to get in the attic and remove the ducting from the fan and see if theres a problem at the connection there. Maybe a squirrel put its bedding in the ducting? It happens.

Could be lots of reasons for the noise but wiring it wrong wouldn't cause roaring. The fan wouldn't work, or worst burn up, if wiring was the issue. The problem is the more than likely the fan blade assy is worn out or something is restricting the air flow in the ducting going to the outside of the house.

Best possible solution for clicking noise while fan is on MC 2005? Even if you turn off AC and leave fan running you get the noise. It stops only if you turn off fan completely... Thanks!

This is usually caused by ethier the fan is touching the side of the housing, or There is something stuck in the fan housing. Items can fall down the vents easily Becoming trapped. Paper is great for making clicking noises, my customers complain About clicking or a rattle like sound I usually find a small piece of cardboard or paper In the fan or duct work. Ethier way you will probably have to remove the fan, or access The duct work in some fashion to find the cause of your noise.:-)

Fan runs but no cool air or any air coming thru ducts

Be sure the "fan running" noise you hear is actually the fan and not just the refrigeration pump. The unit would still make a running noise but the fan may not be turning.
Check to be sure the filter is clean and that all vents are open.

Drum not turning, hear humming noise

the humming noise is from the motor,see if you can spin the drum by hand,if it moves you have a bad motor,if it's hard to turn you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is jammed somewhere,the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into

Hi i hear a ticking coming from behind the glove box, i tried turning every thing off, it still ticks till i turn the car off

It may be the heater blower fan. It is always on when the car is running. I'm pretty sure the blower is under/behind the glove box.
Does the ticking noise change when you speed-up or slow the fan speed? If so, there may be a leaf or something stuck in the fan blades. You might have to have the blower motor removed to get it cleaned out.
Hope this helps...

Whwn i turn the heat all the way up loud clicking noise if turned lower noise stops what could this be notfan

I think your talking about the heater fan? If you hear more noise as you increase the blower speed, there is something in the squirl cage or a problem with the blower motor itself. Leaves, paper or something lite on the pass side floor, it will get sucked into the recirculation duct,causing a noise.Remove the blower motor and clean out any debris, and inspect the squirl cage and turn the motor by hand to see if you hear any noise
