SOURCE: Loud Knocking

If the noise is not coming from the fan as Buffalo suggests, it is most likely the expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger. The old school way to lessen the noise of expansion is to bank the combustion chamber with a hammer. I don't recommend it today because the metal is so thin (thus all the noise) and you may damage it. You will get used to it and the noise may soften the more it is used. You will never get it to stop.

SOURCE: New 14 seer split ruud heat pump makes very loud knocking noise

Well you may want to have a tech come out and check the freon level, but mostly when going into defrost, some units make alot of noise, the freon is reversed in the unit by way of the reversing valve, it makes a whooshing sound like freon is draining off, as far as the knocking noise, could be as I said in the beginning, might be low on freon, but it could be that, this particular unit does this, I have had units make some really strange noises in the past but functioned perfectly, hope this helped, please let us know, thanks again,

SOURCE: my mixer master (Accolade 400) will only run at top speed

Hi JENNY, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Do not despair; there is a way to fix your KA mixer. From the symptoms you’re describing is sounds like your mixer’s (speed) Control Assembly and/or the Hall Effect Sensor has gone bad and either one or both parts need to be replaced.
As your mixer is out of warranty, the inspection and troubleshooting of the control assembly is something you can do yourself, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the correct Part List manual around when you start to disassemble your mixer.
If you're lacking one, you can download it from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides, and enter the 6 character model number, in this case, KN15E1X, and then select the first file, KN15E1XBW0.pdf (335.24 KB)
that appears under Parts List (17). (check to see if this matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5 titled, "Case, Gearing and Planetary Assembly", which provides an exploded view for the assembly and disassembly of the mixer and locate Illus. Nos.8 & 9, Control Assembly and Hall Effect Sensor, respectively. I suspect one or both of these parts that are the cause of your mixer’s speed woes. Since the (speed) Control Assembly is the more complicated of the two, that’s where I’d focus my attention. The Hall Effect sensor is a very simple device and rarely goes bad.
First check to see if any of the connections have come loose from your Control Assembly. If everything looks tight then you need to replace it. Unfortunately the whole controller assembly is on a little PC board filled with resistors and capacitors, which was not meant to be 'home fixed' and my 'expertise' ends there. A local small appliance repair shop should be able to determine if the controller assembly is functioning properly or not. Or you can just order replacement parts without the testing.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

SOURCE: The toilet makes a very loud, high pitched noise when flushed.

I recently had the same problem. to let you know I replaced the filler and the flapper to NO avail. I tried flushing with the water OFF and it still did it thought it was in the siphon so I removed the water going in there and it still made the sound. This AM it got to me so I was determined to be rid of the WHINE It only happens when the TOP is on that is when it hit me is the seal so great that the vacuum creates the whine I put the little rubber door stops, the one you use in door jams, on the four side and tada no more sound Hope this helps

How do I flush out my brake system on a 1995 Buick century?

My car shits real hard when i drive it, and it has a knocking noise.


Have you tried pepto bismol?
shifts? Time for the transmission to be flushed and new fluid put into it and as for the knocking. If it is your engine it could be a lot of things 1 head 2 valves 3 piston could need a new engine or overhaul. if you see metal in the transmission fluid when you change it out you need a new transmission and if your engine is knocking too then it is time for a new car unless you want to make it a project. Good luck with that.

VOCAL FILLING american standard 6 ltr flush --when the last half of the tank is filling ,it becomes quite vocal , like a loud hum ! any ideas ?


What probably is happening is the valve in the fill tube is warped or worn. The easiest fix is to replace the fill valve with a new fluid master. This is where your noise is coming from.

What could be wrong with the power sterring if it makes a loud noise. after checking poer sterring fluid


The most common problem with noisy power steering (whining noise) is that the power steering pump is defective. If you replace the pump make sure you flush the system with clean PS fluid or it can ruin the new pump.

Squealing noise stops when i push in clutch pedal we were on the interstate and suddenly i had no clutch pedal we got off the street it was hard to get it out of gear i checked the fluid it was fine...


Sounds like a bad Throw Out Bearing.. Needless to say.. it has to be repaired.

Depending on mileage.. may as well replace the clutch/pressure plate.. and have he flywheel looked at.. change the tranny oil.. check the u joints.. rear end etc..

Best of luck!

Need help in replacing front and rear brakes on a 2003 mitsubishi montero full size


Hi there,

The pads are easy to change. You do not need any special tools. If there are no grooves in the rotors I would just put on new pads. Don't get cheap pads or they will squeek. I would strongly suggest that you flush out the old brake fluid. You will be amazed at how brown and gunky the old fluid is. Flushing the fluid regularly will help make your calipers and master cylinder last a long time. I like to use Valvoline Synpower brake fluid, it is a couple bucks more but it is DOT 4.

One last tip. When compressing the brake caliper piston you do not want to push the fluid back up to the system, because you might get some crud into the ABS module. Therefore, when compressing the piston, loosen the bleed screw to let the fluid flow out of the bleed screw.

This is how to get it done:
  • Remove the old fluid from the master cylinder resevior with a turkey baster. Top up master cylinder with fluid.
  • Remove the right rear wheel and bleed/flush the brakes with the old pads on. Top up master cylinder with fluid(important). Remove the caliper, open the bleed screw and compress the piston, close the bleed screw.
  • Install new pad and caliper
  • Bleed again. Top up master cylinder with fluid.
  • Repeat on remaining 4 wheels RR, LR, RF, LF.
Glad to be of help!!!

Aquia II Dual Flush Toilet: toilet after flush removes to much water from bowl...


Adjust the float on the Fluid-master a little higher if possible. This should allow more water to enter the bowl after the flush.

Making noise when turning steering wheel but no leakage


The power steering pump that is used in your car is notorious for noise issues, it is a loud whine which gets louder as you turn the steering wheel right or left, flush the system fluid and replace the pump.
