SQUEAKING PRINTER


If it is squeaking when it is trying to pick up the paper then check the Paper Feed system.
If it is squeeking as it tries to print. Then it will be either the Cartridge or the Drum unit.
If it is squeaking from the back of the machine as the page is fed through the fuser then check the fuser is free moving.

Replacing the faulty unit will fix the squeaking. Be that the Paper Feed System/Drum/Toner/Fuser.

Hoover 2300L 6.okg boss. Squeaking when agitating back& forth, not when spinning. Is this a bearing problem? & is it replacable. If so, from where in south australia? Or wherever.?




Washing machines don't usually run silently, but in most cases, a squeaking noise that occurs while the washer is agitating the clothing is not normal and signifies a problem. If the noise only happens when the washing is agitating, the problem is likely connected to the motor or your water pressure. Depending on the specific cause, you may feel comfortable fixing it yourself. Otherwise, call a professional.

The Agitator
  • Agitators are located in the center of the drum, or basket, of top-load washing machines. Front loading washing machines do not use agitators -- instead, gravity moves the clothes from the top of the drum to the bottom. Agitators usually consist of a tall cone fitted with arms at the base. The purpose of the agitator is to rotate the clothes and soapy water around the tub to clean the clothes. The agitator itself is not usually the cause of the squeaking noise. It is powered by the drive mechanism, which consists of a motor, clutch and gears.
Motor Problems
  • A repetitive squeaking noise during the agitation cycle may signify a problem with the motor. Specifically, the belt on the motor may be wearing out. Some motors use rubber couplers, which also wear out easily. The belt is necessary for the agitator to turn, but over time, it wears thin, just like the belts in your car's motor. An easy way to test for this problem -- if you're handy -- is to take the belt off the motor and then run it. If the squeaking noise stops, the problem is indeed your belt. Of course, this means your agitator won't move. Replacing the belt should fix the problem.
Water Pressure Issues
  • The tub, or drum, fills with water right before the agitator turns on, and water continues to circulate throughout the washing process. As the tub fills and water circulates, you may hear a squeaking or squealing noise if you have high water pressure. This sound is caused by the force of the water moving through the pipes. To adjust this, turn the knobs on the hot and cold valves on the pipes that go into your washing machine.
Considerations
  • New washing machines may squeak at first as the parts "warm up," according to the GE Appliances website. The noise should disappear after five complete washing cycles have run on the machine. Unbalanced loads, overly heavy loads and loose items in the drum may also cause noise when the agitator comes on, but these things usually do not produce a squeaking sound.

Pasta roller squeaks when dough is not going through


The others had good solutions but I thought I would add mine as well.
I put vegetable oil on both outer edges of a folded paper towel that fits the entire width in the narrower roller settings of the machine. I run it through 3-4 times as if it were a piece of dough. It takes away the squeaking.....at least until it is needed again.

My printer keeps making squeaking noises when printing


This could be caused by a few different things:

1. Your cartridge
2. Your rollers that pull the paper through the machine
3. Fuser

If it is the cartridge, try changing it to see if it makes a difference. If it doesn't and the problem is with your fuser or rollers, you could be due for a maintenance cleaning and a certified technician can help rid you of the squeak.

Flair Cleaner makes squeaking noises


There are two items that could squeak:
If it squeaks when pushing/pulling it on carpet, WHILE NOT RUNNING, then the wheels are squeaking when they rotate on the wheel shaft. If so, one drop of oil at the shaft would fix it.

If it squeaks WHILE RUNNING, mostly while pulling backwards on carpet, then the belt is slipping. You may wish to set the nozzle height setting for a higher pile carpet, or could replace the rubber belt.

Hl-2140 noises


For a possible fix to the Brother HL-2140 squeal/squeak/noise problem open the printer at the other side from the paper tray and toner cartridge door. You should see a little black roller rod along with some white wheels.

The noise may be coming from the contact between the wheels/rollers which pull paper toward the output tray on top after it has been printed.

Check and clean/wipe the wheels and black rod, especially in the center area. Hopefully the noise will now be reduced/eliminated.

Cheers, Stephen

Troubleshootinggtabtop.gif
    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

bpp90119-1.gif Replace the whole unitgtabtop.gifIf the printer is still making a grinding or squeaking noise after following the steps above, replace the whole unit. See Whole Unit Replacement instructions, which are included with the whole unit replacement.
Testinggtabtop.gifUpon replacement of the whole unit, perform a Paper Path test and a self-test as described below to verify that the new unit is functional.
    Performing a paper path test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Diagnostics Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Perform Tray x Paper Path Test is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the test.
    NOTE: The paper path test will terminate only when the paper in the tray being tested runs out or the printer is turned off.
    Performing the stand-alone self-test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Self Test Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Print Menu Map is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the stand-alone self-test.

Consistent Squeaking Noise


The fuser unit, [near the paper exit] which heat-sets [fuses] the toner onto the paper, has bearings (bushings) that are screaming for high-temperature grease. Open it, and apply some common sewing machine oil onto the bushings. If the noise stops, you will need to repeat this every 2-3 months or disassemble the fuser roller and apply high-temperature grease.
