Screeching sound when I hit the return

When I hit the carriage return, much of the time, there is a screeching sound. When it doesn't screech it often returns only to the middle, ignoring the left margin. Any idea what causes this.

Remove the case by inserting a flat screw driver nito each of the slots on the four corners of the base spray some light iol on the carrier motor bearings (right rear corner of typewriter.
Also put some on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.

It is possible that your carriage ahs a bind in it. When you turn on the machine does it go all the way to the left and then jump back to the margin? If you tab all the way to the right, does the carriage make a screeching sound when you hit the return? If this happens, your transport motor may need to be serviced as well as the carriage rails and bearings in the carrier.

Maybe it does not want to hit the wall, LOL screeching sounds come from a moving part if you think about it. Could be a fan that when overworked may be in need of cleaning or replacement. "Interesting"

After car wash, brakes made a screeching noise. How do I get rid of this? It sounds like metal rubbing against metal so I haven't moved it.


SOUNDS LIKE U HAVE METALLIC PADS. TOTALLY NORMAL. THE PADS WILL BED IN AND THE SCREECHING SOUND WILL GO AWAY. SUGGEST U GET A BETTER NON-METALLIC PAD INSTALLED IF U DON'T WANT TO HEAR SCREECHING NOISES EVERY TIME THE PADS GET WET. I'M ALSO ASSUMING U HAVE NO MORE THAN 50,000 MILES ON THE PADS AND THE PADS AND DISCS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE.

Fridge making loud screeching sounds


Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.
