The run capacitor is probably bad. The run capacitor is usually a two part component. One part serves the fan and one part serves the compressor. Sometimes when they fail the fan will even run backwards instead of just stalling. Replace it.

    Double check how the new one is wired. Your symptoms really point to a problem with it.

Why don't fan blades rotate?


Sadly Hunter doesn't want people dismantling their stuff and replacing broken or burnt out pieces. They'd rather you buy a new one. If the motor has burned out which is possible a solution depending on how handy you are is simply hunt down a similar replacement and reconnect it.

Make sure the new motor has the exact same leads and connectors as the old one had as some Hunter fans have more than two leads. The model I have has four leads: a black, a white, a green and a red as my model has integrated lighting controls by passed by the motor.

I bought a simple blower motor with the same rating only two wires and with a bit of solder and wire I hooked up the motor and lights separately. The new motor is much faster than the older one so I had to add a tiny 1-way 500 watt dimmer switch to manually turn down the speed.

Microwave. Makes loud humming noise and burning smell when. I turn it on


there is a fan connected to a motor, it is above the oven compartment usually, sometimes in the back, its purpose is toe distribute the microwaves and to cool the chamber. Your motor is stuck and the burning smell is the motor windings melting and burning. In order to fix this you need to take the oven apart and access the fan. You may be able to turn the blades of the fan when you get to it, and get it to go again, but it may be past that point already. If this is a cheap (less than 80 dollar US) oven, just replace it, or if its new and under warranty try to get a replacement, either from the store where you bought it, or contact the manufacturer and find out what they might do for you.

My amp stopped working after 2 days from the day bought it. It stayed on standby for a while, about ten to fifteen minutes, but once I switched it on it started humming and making crack and pop noises.I...


Take it back for warranty replacement or repair since you only had it for 2 days. Since there is burnt smell this could be very serious problem. Probably a fuse blew due to any of several problems.

The pilot light runs off a rectified output of the power transformer but it is fused. There are three sopplies from the transformer and any of those could have a short and blow the main fuse or their individual fuses.

Take it in as I stated as this is NOT DIY repair. There are high voltages in this unit and if one is not adept at electronics you probably would not be able to repair it anyway.

WMSD2756GES Clicking, slight burnt smell, humming then repeats


Replace the overload relays down at the compressor. Easy repair and too expensive. Do this and you'll be good to go.

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Start buttonhums drum dont turn


It could be the motor. And if you are smelling a burnt smell it most likely is. The cheapest way to fix this is to try and find a refurbished motor. But to tell you the truth you may just want to get a whole new machine as it will cost just a little more then a motor costs. If you have a warranty on your dryer then you're in luck, but if not check first for the price of a refurbished motor then price out a new dryer. Hope that helps and good luck.
