Maxima problems

Sounds like you have a wheel bearing going out. Try swerving car left to rt on a straight road with NO traffic. If the noise is louder one way and less or gone the other it's a wheel bearing

My McGraw Edison drill press is making a screaching noise,and it sounds like it is going lock up.

make sure one of your pulleys isnt rubbing on the guard housing other wise remove belt and run motor. if that sounds ok check and see if your spindle turns freely and has no play side to side if spindle shaft turns hard most likely a bearing problem could be sleeve or ball bearings will have to deassemble and inspect also if motor screams while running with belt off the motor will need new ball bearings .

Heater blower making noise

Blower motor bearings likely failing....dry ! I have been lucky many times by drilling a hole on high side of motor shaft and adding non-detergent 30 Wgt oil. to front and rear.
I say high side to be sure when motor is remounted...the oil doesn't run out.

Ge window ac making a noise after it is on for a while. a sort of soft screeching noise. what could it be

more than likely it's the fan motor's bearings running dry.

For the past several years the mfc's have been installing 'oil-less' motors in most window units (in order to sell more units/motors of course) - but there's always a chance your motor can be oiled, so I would check it out and see if there's a place to put oil in - sometimes there will be a plastic stopper in the hole (on the motor) and all you have to do is pull it out and add oil. Note: look for a place on both sides of the motor to oil.

If by chance you don't have a place to oil the motor, you can always try drilling a hole on top of the bearing(s) - (which I've done with moderate success in the past) and then squirt oil in the hole you drilled.

All of this is assuming it is your fan motor (most likely cause) - but there could always be something else, as in the compressor bearings - in which case you can't do anything about - but I would bet it's the fan motor.

hope this helps

FAC084N7A1 fan motor makes loud grinding sound

It's obvious to me that your motor 'quit' turning because of a lack of lubrication.

You have one 'slight' chance here - and that depends on whether or not you are able to take a drill and 'drill' a small hole on top of the bearing case (which encases the bearing).

On most motors you can do this quite easily. Just look on the end of the motor (where the shaft comes out of the motor) and you should see the bearing encasement (on some motors this is internal and you won't be able to do this). - but in any case if you can - 'just drill a small hole at the top of the encasement and then take a oil bottle, one of those plastic ones with the long slender tube - and oil the motor. I've done this many times in the past and more times than not your fan motor will run normally for quite some time.

Note: you must understand though - that the damage already done to the motor 'might' cause this manuver to be un-sucessful, i.e. the motor may run and not make noise but will heat up and go off - or it may still make the grinding noise and also heat up and go off.

But, you do have a chance this way.

If this doesn't work - the only thing to do is to replace the motor.

Note: I've never took one of these motors apart and tried to oil the bearings as you suggested - mainly because the chance of success - versus the "time and trouble" to do so is very slim.

good luck!

Noise when sping

Looks like bearing problem. A temporary repair is to remove rear plate.
Drill small hole in bearing housing, inject grease or Vaseline with a small
syringe obtainable at chemist. Seal hole with self tapping screw and run spinner for about 10/15 mins. to allow dispersal.

Depending on the type of hammer drill you have, the noise should only be heard when you are applying pressure to the material you are drilling. Some drills have 2 bump plates that cause the hammer action. This is what causes the noise. It kind of sounds like the gears are stripped but the chuck still goes just fine. You do not need to grease this, it will make this noise regardless. However you may want to take a look at the gears and make sure they are ok. You may want to add grease if the old grease is broken down or there is not enough in the gear housing. Larger hammer drills have a piston and actual hammer. Such as the Bosch Bulldog series. If it is this type and there is noise when you are in drill mode there may be more serious problems.

Koolspace 600 Problem

You'll need to replace the fan. The original fan bearings wear our after a couple of years. It's pretty simple to drill out the rivets and replace the fan. I suggest you replace all four with ball-bearing fan units.
