Question about GE Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal GFC520F

Open Question

Gfc520 loose stud on turntable

Nine-year old unit. No prior problems. Started making new loud sound, didn't sound normal or good. Still gets power and spins. Unplugged unit. No foreign objects detected. Turntable spins freely. Noticed that one of the two rivets in the turntable (that hold the two shredding blades) is loose. The other is tight and firm. Am wondering if the new noise is caused by the rivet shaking loose and, if so, is this something worth fixing or, given the unit's age, if it just makes sense to buy a new one. Thank you!

Many thanks to e3enigma above! I removed the synch motor under the turntable; all other microwave functions work fine and the grinding noise is gone, hooray! A trip to the appliance parts store tomorrow for a replacement synchronous motor and all should be well. Thanks again!

SOURCE: HELLO, WSL100D0WW IS MAKING NOISE ON DRAIN/SPIN CYCLE.

Or, you have coins in your pump casing. Look on the back of the washer, and unscrew the circular port in the bottom right corner. (Keep an 8x13 baking pan underneath, water will escape once you open the chamber). Remove and change/objects from the chamber and replace the port. You should be good to go. This is actually very common for this model washer.

A number of days ago we put two plates of food in the microwave to reheat them. There was a snap, crackle, pop noise. We checked to see there was no metal object in the unit....there wasn't ...we know...


Are you sure the plates were Microwave oven safe? Some dishes have metal in the colors of the design. A snap, crackle, pop noise normally means there is metal present in the oven.

The unit is 3 years old and when I turn it on there is a loud hum. Theunit also does not heat but turns the turntable?


From your description it sounds like the magnetron has failed in this oven. That's the part the makes the microwaves to heat the food. It typically fails by shorting out and making a loud hum noise. It not usually worth fixing since the price of a replacement magnetron is almost as much as a new oven.

When washer is started make loud grinding noise


Very likely the bearings in the motor have begun to fail. You can replace the motor, but for a 15 year old DW, sometimes it makes better sense to just buy a new one. Depends on the features the old DW has, vs new, vs motor replacement cost.

I have a 10 SEER heat pump about 16 years old, yesterday I notice that the outside unit was making a loud click noise in the heating mode. It's very close to the defrost electrical curcuit board. The unit...


Depending on make and model sounds like a check valve clicking. It can sound like it is coming from that area. You say your unit is 16 years old. Honeywell did servey on unit 10 years and older and found out they loose 25% effeicency after 10 years. You may think about changing it out. With the new tax credits you can get a 16 seer unit for the price of a 13 seer. I went from a 10 to 15 seer and my power bill dropped 40%. Rus.

Playing records and there is a loud buzzing noice, also the sound is coming out distorted, one minute loud next minute quiet.please help


Make sure your turntable is grounded to your amp and that may take care of your problem. Most turntables have a seperate ground wire for that purpose. If you are having to turn your volumn up very high to get proper sound from your amp then your amp may not be new enough to accept a moving magnet phono cartridge and may be the old ceramic input type and a seperate small amp will be required. You used to be able to get these at Radio Shack. But I would look into the ground issue first as the most likely. Good luck.

My 1200 is making a loud buzzing noise!


Yes, that large metal box is the housing for the transformer. Not too hard to replace, but if not done properly can cause serious damage to your turntable.

I've never heard of a transformer on these units causing a buzzing noise. Did you buy this used or new? If it's new, it's highly unlikely that the issue is with the transformer. However, we have been seeing some 'unusual' issues with Technics 1200s lately, which we attribute to a decline in quality standards @ Matsushita (Technics parent company).

The transformer can be purchased HERE. There really isn't much to replacing this part, just put it back exactly as you took it apart. Take pictures along the way, to help you if you get stuck. Also take some notes on where each part goes.

If you get stuck along the way, feel free to give us a call. Our service techs are masters with the 1200s, and we can walk you through it: 1.866.668.1596 ext 1

Dryer making very loud noise.


We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.

My decks!


do both of your numarks make the same sound? what is the weird sound? The magnet is 1 piece, so I am not sure if it has come loose - very hard to come loose. Check to see if there is any debris inside the magnet/coil area. Sometimes staples, small metal items get stuck to the platter. Just lift the platter off the turntable, to expose the coil and the magnet. If all is clear, then you obviously have a more serious issue. However, you will have to be more detail in describing what kind of problem your having: - Does your turntable power on? - Does it sound weird when you press the play button or does it make a sound even when the platter is not rotating? - This happening to both turntables? - Did you buy these units new or used? - If used, do you know the history of the turntables? - Does it affect the speed or playing ability of the unit? - Do you use the unit on the road? Move it around? - Did this just start happening instantly, or was it something that just got louder over time? I know it's a lot of questions, but I need as much information as possible to properly source the problem via this limited method. - Justin DJPROAUDIO
