Noise some times and fans dont work some times


99 out of a hundred times - when the fan motor on a window unit 'makes noise and works intermittedly,' you have a bad fan motor which will require replacing.

Sounds as if the fan motor's bearings are making noise - which - would account for the fan working only part time. The reason being is that the 'bearing noise' you are hearing - is a result of the bearings being wore out - thus it causes the fan motor to heat up and 'go off' - on the internal overload' which is built into the fan motor.

Like I said above - most commonly the 'fix' is to replace the motor.

When turn on blows cold air but makes loud whining noise like rubbing on something. almost a whine sound


sounds like your bearings are out on your fan motor. Some of the older fan motors have places where you can oil the bearings but most newer ones do not. Unless you have a place to oil the bearings and they are not already too far gone you best bet will be to replace the motor. Once the bearings start howling in the way you described it is time to start looking for a replacement. It is also possible (although unlikely) that the noise you hear is (a) the fan blade hitting part of the frame. (b) the bearings in the compressor.

My heater fan is turning on and off, and it sounds horrible when it does work. Is it the resistor pack? I only ask because of the noises.


It is not probably the resistor pack, because that only is in circuit at lower speeds, and would not cause noise.
If there is not something in the fan, like leaves, then it is probably the fan motor bearing.
If you can get at it, you could try lubricating it. Thin sprays get in better, but don't last as long.
Heavy grease is best.

Noise in freezer..sounds like the blower fan .Still blowing air in but makes noise


Good day,
A fan motor with bad bearings is not unusual, Remove the panels, and inspect the fan motor. On occasion a piece of ice could be hitting the blade.
If not you'll need to replace the motor. If you try to oil the bearings, it may help for a while, but the bearings are usually scored.
Most appliance parts houses will carry the motor. If you don't take the motor with you, make sure you have the complete model number with you.
On GE machines, it's recommended you change the blade as well.

Thank you for using FixYa

Carrier Air V unit with loud noise


If it sounds like a scraping noise it could be the motor bracket ah broken and the squirrel cage (fan assembly) is hitting the fan housing, if it is more of a squeal than it very well could be a bearing. Very hard to guess without seeing or hearing it.

Motor noise coming from hp designjet 120 nr


The fan is probably filled with dust. This can throw the balance off and make vibrations or cause resistance which can make a humm, not necessarily a bearing, not sure if the fan even has bearings. Anyway, the intermittent noise can be that the fans only run when the printer is hot. Find where the noise is coming from clean off the blades and components with a damp rag, blow around or lubricate the center of the fan, and replace it in the printer. Should fix it.

Heater fan motor


The fan motor can be checked by using jumper wires. remove the wiring connector from the fan.Run the positive wire from the battery to the positive on the fan and the ground to ground. It should turn smoothly and at normal speed at 12 volts.If it is slow and noisy, the bearings making the noise. This indicates the motor is bad.
