If the drive is a couple of years old and has been on constantly it may be failing. If you have been able to reboot and it works without making noise on its own without being accessed then I'd suggest getting a higher capacity drive to transfer your vital stuff to it before it goes totally. This isn't comforting to know you may not be able to access your data, or even if it is in warranty, they won't warranty your data or restore it for you. If the drive stays on for a shorter period of time. try to copy the important stuff directly to your PC's hard drive if you have the space, then backup to CD or DVD's. There are services out there who can resore your data to DVD from the drive but it can become expensive and they have to take the drive apart to do it so it's gone for a while. Hope it doesn't get to that point.

Why would a brand new fridge make strange noises already?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFSS2614QS, is making a strange humming noise. Your new, high-efficiency refrigerator may introduce unfamiliar sounds. These sounds normally indicate your refrigerator is operating correctly. Some surfaces on floors, walls, and kitchen cabinets may make these sounds more noticeable. This could possibly be the compressor that you are hearing. Modern, high-efficiency compressors run much faster than in the past. The compressor may have a high-pitched hum or pulsating sound. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Strange clicking noise in front

It could be the internal combustion of the main valve being clogged or it has a loose spark plug that is constantly providing a spark without oil.

My saturn sl2 alarm starts to beep when I try to start the car and won't stop for about a minute. Car won't start. My power locks have been disabled(over a year now). It started acting strangely and...

This sounds somewhat similar to a problem I had with my 1999 Saturn SL2. There was "burning and arching" on the fusebox and it was replaced. The first few times my car would make an extra beep noise when locked or unlocked and I believe the radio/clock had to be reset. The problem got worse although sporadic. Eventually the car wouldn't start - not even making a clicking noise and a big variety of electrical components would not work or didn't sound right.

Clunk noise from front passenger side when

That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen

Making strange noises and stopped working

It sounds like a broken mechanic part problem. You need to bring it to an authorized repair shop.
