There are most likely some sort of bearings inside the wheel hub that are causing this.

SOURCE: My pedals are squeaking while pedaling on my

hi.

i cannot see any problems with wd40 on any bike and have used it myself for many years.
just wipe away any excess, and do not spray it on the pedal tops (where your shoes go) as they may get slippery.

light oil (3in1 or simillar) is also excellent on bikes instead of wd40. same advice as above.

i find wd40 works faster, especially on squeaks, but oil works for longer.
i usually use wd40 first to cure the imediate noise, and then use a few drops of the oil to keep it quiet for longer.

hope this helps

Troubleshooting a problem with high pitched squeaking in GE dryer model PBVH520EJ0WW Squeaks when load is small or nearly dry - repairman came to check it out and said he 'couldn't fi


Could be the bearings going, other possibilities could be that the drum is slightly misaligned and scraping against the housing, although that's not very likely, or a bad belt.

Although sometimes it's some obscure thing, I could be compleatly wrong.

High pitched squeaking dryer


its just the bearing and it needs replaced. it will take about two hours to do and it will cost you about 30 dollars in parts. you can find many really goods vids on youtube that will show you how to do it and most parts manufactures now have directions on how to do it in the cluded when you buy the parts.

My GEM GL-1821A Computer monitor has a high pitch squeak that is intermittent in occurrence but sometimes continues for long periods of time. Got any ideas?


A high-pitch squeal is common in CRT TV sets and monitors. I've never run across this in an LCD monitor, but there's a first time for everything. If the sound isn't coming through built-in speakers (if this model has them) and is being caused by the computer, I would suspect the inverter circuitry. This provides power for the backlight, and there are transformers that may have become noisy. Because of their construction, it's possible for them to vibrate internally, and at a frequency that you hear as the high-pitched noise. There isn't a lot you can do to quiet them. When I worked on TV sets, I had mixed success using hot-melt glue to muffle the noise, but usually the only way to completely cure the problem was to replace the parts. It's unlikely you'll find the parts available for a monitor, so all I can suggest is to bear with the noise as long as the monitor is otherwise working properly. Or use this as an excuse to buy a new LCD monitor; they are quite reasonably priced these days.

Dryer makes a high pitch squeaking noise


This could be a dry support bearing, a dried out drum seal or something stuck in the drum seal. If I could hear it I would know better where to start. Listen and try to locate the source from the above list. It could be the belt but that is not as common.
