My televiosion hs a rattling sound, it displays cooling fan 2 but the sound goes away after a short period of time. I have had a repairman out but the problem still isnt fixed after tow visits


The rattling sound is usually coming from one of the internal fans. The fan may make noise because one of the blades is broken, because of dust or foreign objects in the fan or because of a defective fan bearing. If the noise goes out after a while then the problem is likely a defective fan bearing. If display is indicating that there is a problem with fan 2 then fan 2 must be replaced even if at the moment of testing is not making noise.

Fridgeair dishwasher not working making loud sound. water comes in and I can make it drain out but washer does not start


bearings in the heater fan may get worn out or rust. If this happens, it may become very noisy, either grinding on the bearings, or scraping against the rust. If this happens you need to replace the fan motor. Sometimes, a fan blade may come loose, and you need to replace it.
Sometimes it's the motor that makes the noise you hear. The motor has bearings in it which may become worn or get rusty. When the bearings get worn, they allow the shaft to wobble which can get quite loud. If there is a spin seal leak, water may get inside the motor, washing the bearing grease away. If the spin seal is leaking, you'll notice water leaking from under the dishwasher. There is also a disc attached to the top of the motor called a slinger. It sometimes breaks off and spins around the motor's shaft while it turns, causing some noises. You will need to replace the motor if the bearings are bad. You also need to replace the motor if the slinger is broken as well.

Newer dishwashers may make a squealing or rattling noise on the first run. This is because it has not had any water in it yet, and the motor seals are dry. You may hear this in a unit that hasn't been run in a week or more as well. You should operate the dishwasher regularly to keep the sump water from getting smelly, and to keep the seals lubricated. You can add a quart of water to the sump before running it.

Rattling noises may be produced by dishes rattling inside the dishwasher due to the water pressure from the sprayer arms on the dishes. To determine if the rattling is a loading issue, run the unit empty. If the sound is persistent, it may be that there is debris in the pump.

dishwasher water-inlet valves are noted to make a hum that lasts about 60-90 seconds several times during a washing cycle. This hum is a different hum than the sound of the motor running.

A rhythmic knocking or thumping sound may be caused the sprayer arms hitting something as they go around and around. Rearrange the dishes and resume the wash.

A clunking or clanking may be heard when the detergent cup opens; while a clicking sound may be produced by the timer or electronic control panel.

A solenoid makes a snap sound when it opens. This happens about six times during each load.

Pipes rattling or banging may be caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The sound is caused by the water slamming into the closed section of pipe. A plumber can install an anti-hammer device.

Small objects can sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this occurs, you'll need to open the pump and then remove the item that is making the noise or replace the pump. The dishwasher pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and runs off the motor as well. The pump is also attached to the bottom of your dishwasher.

Loud rattles in front fan and loud hummiing from unit itself along w minimal cooling and freezing up

Unfortunately sounds like the squirrel cage in the front may have broken off at the hub. This is a pretty extensive job on most window units, not all that costly (parts wise) but quite a lot of labor.

Sounds like the bearings in the fan motor. Replace the evap fan motor. You should be able to look under refrigeration parts to find your local parts house. But thats what it sounds like to me.

this is the interior fan motor and housing.The rattle may be a piece of debris in there(i.e. leaf or a piece of paper)or a thing in the electric motor called a brush.Run the fan at different speeds and if the sound gets quicker with the fan,its probably just a bit of debris.The other,the fan wont run as well and may may need replacing when it gives up and wont work
