Question about Weider Platinum Plus Weight System

Open Question

Deep vibrating/friction noise when platinum plus is used each rep from inside the machine..

After many years, I'm now getting a loud vibrating or friction noise each time the Platinum Plus is used, each rep. It's both ways. Sometimes if I increase the weight alot, it might go away, but then it'll sort of sneak back. It's coming from inside the main part of the machine -- inside the grey plastic/metal cover where the pulleys and mechanics are. I have never taken that part off. Is there an easy way to take it off and just see what's going on? Anyone encountered the same problem and know a fix? It's pretty loud, and almost sounds like a person moving a table or heavy chair across a hard wood floor. Also, I got the bonus weight that came with the machine. There were never any instructions on how to put it in the machine. If I can get this cover off, is it pretty simple to get it in?

What causes our front loading washer to make exceeding loud noise when it enters a spin?

Sounds like a bearing seal is going. The seal has ruptured and grease of seeping out. The loud noise is the bearings rubbing against each other without adequate grease to reduce the friction. Failure will come soon if it is not fixed. The vibration is coming from the friction and possibly damaged ball bearings .

Loud drilling noise when coffee switch is turned on - rather than the usual purring noise - and no coffee delivery either

How old is your machine ? and what maintenance have you done over time such as replacing the shower curtain located at the pourring end of the hot water ? I had too very loud noise coming occasionnally from the stainless steel rack holding the cup while coffee is delivered. If your ground coffee is too fine it will stop flow during making a shot. Is water coming out when no coffee is placed in the portafilter.The water pump on this machine is a cheap pump that has to be replaced over time. Mine is 7 years old and has delivered four cups of expresso everyday of the year, and still working.3841c994-fb4b-459f-8d1f-710e0aafc3c0.jpg 2ead4f70-37c6-4236-a9c2-992dba149c4c.jpg

Noise and vibration in covered area

Could be a bad bearing or a worn motor guide. Try to get the cover off and take a look. If something is loose it could be dangerous

Hi just got my wife a singer 4423 used it for the fist time and while sewing some times it gets noisy and vibrate. Checked the needle and all seems fine. It don't seem as smoth as I would like it to...

MSRP on that machine is $269.99.
Smooth machines are probably going to start around $400.
Do yourself a favor. Go to a local sewing machine dealer so you can try out the machine before you buy it. Also, take advantage of classes and knowledge of your dealer. You can spend $600 online and still get a loud, shakey machine. Or, go to a sewing machine dealer, try the machine and probably pay about $400. Check out the Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116, MSRP of $399.

When I put a cd or dvd into my disk drive I hear a strange buzzing noise coming from the drive as soon as the cd or dvd starts to play.Sometimes the buzzing comes and goes but will last at least thirty ...

The buzzing might be just a little bit of friction between the motor and its housing rubbing together, or it could be off-balanced and vibrating against the drive cage. It's more than likely nothing as long as the disk still reads, and as long as it does still read, there's no need to send it in for repairs, it's just a minor annoyance. However, if the disk does not read, and I made an inaccurate guess as to the problem, then I would send it into the manufacturer for repairs.

We have an older Keuric coffeemaker and it vibrates excessively

1. We were told by Keurig to place the unit on a MOUSE PAD (like for computer) for vibration and noise reduction. I haven't tried this yet! 2. Also, You need to or have someone to check inside the bottom of the Coffee Maker, sounds like the water tube may have come loose that lets water to the maker.
We just had the loud noise and big vibration problem.
When my husband took the bottom of maker off, he found the water tubing disconnected on the unit. Once he repaired this part and plugged it back up, it WORKED and was quieter and everything worked properly. I pray this helps!

As happened to me, it could be that one of the shock absorbers at the base of the unit has come adrift from its securing point.
