The AC makes a humming sound when starting the fan. If I spin it by hand it runs. Model 620315.321 serial 90716722.


The humming sound is the motor trying to start, if you turn it by hand, usually they will run. it sounds like the motor for fan needs cleaning and oiling. God-Bless ya all!

My 2001 chevy malibu had been working fine up until this afternoon it turns but wont start,itmakes ahumming noise even when i turnoff key.


That humming noise may be your fuel pump burning out. Try turning the key to the on position while someone else listens near the gas tank. The humming should only hum for a few seconds so you won't have time to listen yourself unless you can hear it from inside. If the hum continues and doesnt shut off, it is likely a bad fuel pump. It is normal to hear a small hum for a couple of seconds , but when it starts getting weak, it will hum louder, longer, or not at all

I have a danby premiere model DPAC10071 & the dehumifier now wont fill external tank. every 2-3 minutes it makes a noise kind of like a fog horn way off in the distance(as if its trying to run again,...


it sounds like your compressor is failing to start ... that usually means a bad starting capacitor ... if thats the case it will hum loudly for a few seconds periodically .. thats the compressor trying to start but it cant if the capacitor is bad .. it will stop humming when it gets too hot .. a thermal breaker will turn off the power until it cools back down .. dont let this continue since it will eventually damage the unit ... replace the capacitor .. the capacitor is usually mounted on or near the compressor .. it often has two sections .. one for the fan motor and one for the compressor ... since they are both in one case you have to change them both ,...

Should the an on my master 150000 btu be hard to spin . My wont run all of a sudden. It keeps tripping the reset button aftera humming sound for a few seconds


the fan should turn freely. those fans have a tendancy to dry out and will trip the reset. if the fan isn't shot completely, try oiling it and working the blades until they loosen up. most of the fans used on these units are not bearing type but brass collars which dry out. if they don't loosen up, the fan is probably too far gone. usually the humming indicates the motor trying to turn the rotor but can't turn the dry rotor shaft or a bent blade stuck on something. good luck jay

Pump just hums but wont start


Sounds like its frozen and causing a very heavy load on your circuit. If the motor gets hot within seconds, its shot and needs replacing. Have you attempted to turn the motor over by hand ?

Furnace runs OK, but blower runs again a few seconds later


Could be a defective thermostat in the plenum.
When a gas furnace shuts down the fan(blower) will run until the plenum cools to the safe range. Usually 1 and 1/2 minutes.
Intermittent operation is a defective thermostat or relay.

25 yr+ old Sears opener runs past lower limit


Update: I remembered that I had a problem with the door reversing too much a while back. It was chattering in the tracks and I could not fix it with lubrication and changing spring tension. So I dialed up the down reversing force. This contributed to the jam-up I had when the lower limit was ignored. If I had a lighter force, it may have at least reversed.

After futzing with it I left it alone for several hours. The motor would hum every few minutes. I was considering cutting power to it overnight. I pressed the remote one more time and the motor ran normally to a limit and stopped. I tested it a few times then reconnected the chain and door. Seems fine now. I suspect an intermitten logic board problem. I'll try lightening up the down force and using it for a while.
