This usually indicates a start capacitor going bad on the motor. They are usually easy to replace, just make sure you get one with the same ratings on it as your current one has.

Goodman clt60-1 fan not working loud humm


The hum is a good indication that the fan is getting power. Therefor, the fan is locked up or it has a weak capacitor. Attempt to spin while power is off. It should spin freely. if not, you will need to replace the motor. If it spins freely, I would attempt to spin the fan blade while it is humming. If it starts running fine, it is very likely the capacitor. If not, then replace the motor.

I have a affinity dryer that just humms when I turn it on. I have power 220 at recpt. no code reading?


Sounds like the motor could be locked up, Is the dryer turning if not belt broke , Check belt, take the front access plate where the motor is located and turn it on check to see if the shaft of the motor is turning at normal speed and again check the belt, with power off and belt is not broken by hand turn the drum to make sure nothing is blocking it from spinning freely. if that is free and clear than my bet is on the motor itself as it sounds like it is in locked rotor.
Cause's of locked rotor
Motor seen its better days
if equipped the start/run capacitor could be out
Hope this helps.

Fan won't run at all.


If you plug it in and turn it on, does it "humm".
If so, it is getting power. It could be the blades are stuck on something: do they turn by hand?
The motor could be dirty also, is the blade hard to turn?
It can be repaired by Vornado, or you can dis-assemble the motor and clean it.

I have a kenmore 90 plus series model # 11068972892............... when i push start button the dryer motor will humm and mabey start to run or it will just humm and not run at all..if it...


Check under the machine and see if the motor turns easily by hand. It could be the motor, or it could be the bearing. The switching off after a while implies that the motor is struggling against a heavier than normal force and trips because of overheating. Most likely the bearing/s is/are ceasing up.

Grinder won't turn on. Switch tests good with ohm meter and jumping. When switch is turned to ON the shaft makes a slight effort to turn, and humms. The shaft is free to spin by hand.


It sounds like the capacitator might be bad or the starter windings. What you can try and BE CAREFUL is turn the switch on and spin the wheel by hand in direction it will be running to see if starts. Again BE CAREFUL

Fisher & Paykel GWL11 With fault code 56.


had this code come up on mine, couldn't figure out exactly what it was but when I did the diagnostics for the hot and cold valves and the drain valve the hot water water valve would humm but wouldn't do anything. For the time being I have been running mine on cold water only and it has been working fine. Hope this helps a little. Also, the service manual is located under the control panel it will you a lot.

Washer will not spin period. NO humm


Dear FixYa Customer Ronnieh49,

A lot of TIMERS just get to much gunk in them!
With the OLD TIMERS you could open it up and spray it with a can of electrical cleaner (same as they sell for computers) and a lot of the time it would fix the problem!
This may also work on your circuit boards in a new appliance just be sure to read and follow the directions carefully!
I recommend Radio Shack for advice & purchase!
Cost about $10.

Good Luck!

Whirlpool duet washer wont run


sounds as if perhaps the hummm is coming form the drain pump not the motor, remove the front cover and you ll be able to acess the drain pump resivior, unscrew it and you find all sorts if things jammed into the pump preventing free spinning, 7 years servicing this unt never saw a bad motor, 1000's of pumps
