Check the mounting bolts, nuts, screws are tighten. Check with a appliance repairman, because of electric parts are involved. Hope this may be of some help.

Saeco Xelsis service door error

HELLO, I just found out that the door error might be caused by a sensor not realizing the magnet at the plastic cover. You can either change the magnet or simply "power it up" by another magnet. The magnet is located on the plastic top/cover. Hope this is helpful.

Grinding noise

Must look underneath machine and verify nut holding up belt pulley has not loosened, if nut is loose, the noise you are hearing is the pulley scraping against plastic cover. if nut loose, unplug unit and remove 2 5/16in screws from plastic cover, remove nut and add loctite to threads, re-install nut tightly, re-install cover and all is fixed.

Something has rolled under handbrake housing

It's highly unlikely to cause any annoyance.. is it a modern plastic pen? If so, then it is weaker than the high tensile steel cable that has to move to operate the handbrake.
If it is a plastic it will lubricate any metal it rubs against..
If it is metal use a magnet and go 'fishing'...

When the bike is peddled there is a clicking sound. Is this normal? The bike hasn't been used for about a year.

I think the clicking noise is caused by one of two common issues. The easiest is that the little black computer pickup is too close to the magnet located on the right plastic piece on the right side of the wheel and everytime the wheel makes a full circuit while peddling, that little black piece clicks as it actually hits the magnet. If that's the case, then pull the black magnet sensor away just 1/16 of an inch aways so it will not hit the magnet everytime it passes the magnet. You can tell what's causing the clicking noise by getting on the floor and pushing the pedal around with one hand slowly and looking closely at the tow places I will mention to determine where the clicking noise comes from and then making the adjustment to stop it. the other place the clicking can come from is the chain rubbing against the metal on the left side. It might be hitting the TOP of the metal cage when cycling OR the BOTTOM of the metal shield which covers the pedal assembly. Look closely at the left side of the bike while peddling the bike slowly to see if the noise is metal against metal. You can shift the cage slightly to take the pressure of the cage from scrapping the chain by sitting down in front of the bike facing the cage and placing both feet onto the left & right supports (they're what hold the bike up) and you grab the little black wheels on both sides with your hands and push down slightly but firmly to shift the cage a bit and it will move up or down depending on where the chain is scrapping it when you cycle. That cage will shift slightly over time and it can make a loud noise when it scrapes the chain. I hope this helps. If not, give me a reply with more details and I'd be glad to help you isolate and fix the problem. Leave postive comment on fixya if you like my solution. Luke

2000 Malibu has been a wreck, and the front passenger wheel was wrecked. It is still making a noise after I had it repaired. I Can't find out where the scrapping noise is coming from.

something is rubbing,check for loose plastic covers in wheel well,check the brakes,also check for a bad wheel bearing,take it back to who repaired it.

Loud noise coming from DC07

Sometimes the brush bar may be slightly bent and has been rubbing against the yellow housing part (at the hole where the belt is) and has melted part of it off, the part which holds the brushes in place. The noise may the bar vibrating against the yellow part because they are now loose. Unfortunately you may have to replace both parts.

My film advance lever will not advance

First check for corrosion on the two battery contacts, and that the lower contact is still spring loaded and moves. Be sure you have a good battery by inserting it and checking with the battery test button by the rewind knob. If the lights and meter needle are working you're getting power. Remove the bottom cover and you'll see an electromagnet under a whitish plastic cover at the rewind end of the camera. Pull the magnet away from the coil by rotating the L shaped metal lever - you don't have to remove the white cover. Sometimes the magnet gets sticky. That should release the shutter. If it's really dirty, it might stick again. Be careful if you remove the white plastic since the magnet has fine wires that are easily broken, but you can clean the magnet interface.

How do i change the brushes on my wf250 hotpoint aquarius machine

your machine may have a 'brushless' motor. but generally hotpoint motor brushes are fixed with 2 screws and are in ablack plastic cover and can be seen if you tip your machine back against a wall and look underneath. the motor being at the bottom of the drum, you could remove them wuth a long magnetic screwdriver.

GE Microwave Oven JVM1860SF001 - Noisy fan

The fix is that the magnet inside the bottom of the motor eventually drops enough as it spins(plastic hat-shaped piece under it wears/crushes down) to rub on the bottom of it, where it is metal, causing the noise. You can easily remedy this by taking apart the motor, pulling out the magnet and plastic booster piece under it, placing a thin washer on the bottom to boost them up a bit, then reassembling. Problem solved and no need to buy some overpriced part and fill up the landfills with perfectly good equip!
