SOURCE: Knocking sounds

Ususally knocking is a sign that the rubber belt which spins the dryer tub is old and has hardened. If the knocking sound gets quieter after you have run the dryer for 30 minutes or so, then the belt is the problem. As the dryer turns, it heats up the rubber belt and makes the belt more pliable. This quiets the knock. I have seen dryers work fine for years, knocking the whole time. Have the belt replaced if the sound bothers you.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

SOURCE: I have a Hoover 5030d

It sounds like the engine shaft bearing. Fairly simple to fix or replace with the correct tools and know how.
Be sure to take photo's of the motor, tension arm, and any wiring.
You'll need pliers to remove the clamp from the fan, then remove the belt from the motor and make sure that's were the problem is before going any further.

Want to use this on 220v aussie supply to power 1947 221 lionel train loco Suitable?


ohh no that id not try at all , one can first use a power converter that one can buy off many online sources to convert 220 volt down to 110 volt then to transformer this will be safe 4 unit, the 50HZ to 60 Hz doesn't matter to much as well unless one plans on using the lionel sound generator , then its not gonna sound to spry as it will be a bit slower !!

My 1996 4.3 liter gmc jimmy wont start and i have a weak spark, I changed the coil and driver along with the crank and cam sensor. I also changed the vcm and still it has a weak spark,


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My kennith cole watch skipping a beat on the 5th second. And everytime I set time It lacks behind


Watches with a low battery sometimes are programmed to skip and then double a pulse to get your attention. So, you might see the second hand of your watch pulse every 2 or even every 5 seconds, making bigger than expected moves on your dial. In each of these situations, though, your watch should still be keeping time overall.
The situation that you describe sounds more like you either have a defective gear somewhere in your movement, or, equally likely, you have a bit of dirt hat is gumming up one particular tooth on a gear somewhere in your movement.

On a mechanical watch, the usual solution is to service the movement, disassembling the gear train and washing the gears in a special cleaning solution. Each gear would then be inspected for imperfections and either honed or replaced so that the movement as a whole worked properly again. Unfortunately, very few battery-powered quartz watches are designed for this type of service. A watch repair service can try to run your watch at high speed using a special test rig to see whether that flings out any dirt. They can also inspect the watch movement, though the amounts of dust and dirt we're talking about can be too small to be easily spotted.

Bottom line advice: try replacing the battery to see whether that makes a difference. If it doesn't, there's a decent chance that you'll be in the market for a new watch.

Drier had a high shrieking noise. Noise stop now it's a knocking sound


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console will stay with it.
Remove the screws holding the lint filter housing in place, and remove the lint filter.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
