Hey Guys, I have a 1.5 HP A.O Smith switchless motor for my inground pool. I believe it is about 8-10 years old.(I have only owned the house for 4 years) I close up the sytem properly each year,...

Thank you for posting your question here on

Let's start with closing properly - taping things off with garbage bags can cause more harm than good. Trapping moisture under the bags will lead to condensation which is mildly acidic. The lack of any airflow leads to corrosion and accelerated wear. If you are going to cover anything you must make sure air can circulate thru freely or you will actually need new equipment sooner than if you had not covered it at all.

The noise can be from your impeller but only if it is cavitation...are you getting air in the pump basket or air bubbles from the returns in the pool? If not the noise is the bearings. If the seal has leaked at all it can be what caused the noise. If not it is the condensation mentioned above or age/contamination. Whatever the cause it is only relevant in keeping this from happening again sooner that it will naturally.

As long as the damage is limited to the bearings a new set of bearings and a pump seal would cost you $100-$125 in a repair shop...if you buy parts to do it yourself it should be under $30. A word of caution - if you have never repaired this type of equipment and are not familiar with bearing and seal changes the ~$80 labor charge is worth it.

If there is more damage than just those parts a new motor and seal should be under $200 total; again from a shop. A whole new pump would exceed $300 for most units, maybe more.

What is the clunking noise made after the refrigerator stops running? Its a Kenmore and is 10 yrs old. We have thoroughly cleaned behind and beneath the refrigerator and now the noise seems louder.

The clunking noise you hear , is probably when the compressor shuts off , due to temp reached or when it goes into defrost . An internal motor mount spring , inside the compressor , is broken ( rusted and broke ) . The refrig can go on working for years , without any problem , except noisey , when it cuts off . To stop the noise , replaceing the compressor is the only option . I have heard of placeing objects under 1 leg of the compressor , to " re-adjust " the ballance , but thru my experience , another spring broke , causing more knocking .

better replace a whole unit,than you have guarantee on whole unit not just on compressor.
And your unit is old 8 years,replace it and you have a new.
It is also my suggestion.

A three loud consecutive popping sounds at various

You probably have a bad compressor. It's internal parts are held up with 4 springs and one of them has probably broken and causes the compressor piston to hit the side of the comp. housing. This will happen when the ref. shuts off. To be sure, if you turn the ref off at the controls then you should hear the noise in the back. If it is less than 5 years old you can get it replaced under warranty. if more than 5 years old it will just be noisy. it will most likely last several more years like it is. Let me know if I'm right.

Noisy wash cycle

if it's 10 year old it's not worth repairing if the transmission is bad.  However, if it's only the $20 coupler that connects the motor to the transmission.  Fix it.

Amana refridgerator mdl abl2222fes knock noise

sounds like the compressor vibration dampers are wearing out. the dampers are the rubber washers that seperate the compressor from the chassis of the fridge. when they start to deteriorate, and the compressor kicks on, it will bounce against something in the chassis, causing a knocking noise.
