SOURCE: Right-Front Intermediate Axle Shaft Bearing

I am assuming this is an all wheel drive. That being the case you probably have an axle CV joint going out. If you hear noise when making a sharp left or right turn and accelerating that would more than likely be the problem. And, yes this is a serviceable part. Easy to replace if you have the proper tools to accomplish the task. Good luck.

SOURCE: 5-speed transmission making noise in 3rd and 5th gear

are u sure the alignment (side to side, up and down) of the trans on the bell housingis not out of spec, that will burn the bearings out very quickly.

SOURCE: Noisy dryer......when engaged...making squeaking/squealing noise.

If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

SOURCE: showcase freezer fan motor makes constant clicking noise

I have seen this specific problem. and I solved it.

It's the fan "bouncing" against the motor housing. Nothing wrong with fan -- design flaw. The way I solved this problem was to shim the fan mount so the fan was at a slight angle off level -- this keeps the shaft from moving in and out and the fan banging against the housing.

Here's a link discussing your queston about making an air compressor from a refrigerator compressor.

Your local hardware store should have one. The model number will probably not help; you will need to measure the keyway width and height to buy key stock of those dimensions then cut off the length you need.
Hope this helps.

Bear tracker squealing noise when trying to start after running it goes away help please it sat for a year before got rear end fixed

Joe, do you mean a bearing track?
If so, a bearing -or track - usually makes a grinding or knocking noise, not a squealing noise.

If a car stands for a long time the brake rotors can corrode a bit and the pads can stick. Sometimes, when the car is first used after standing, you may hear a rubbing or squealing noise from the wheel. That's the pads sticking to a rusty rotor. The noise may wear off after a few miles when the pads 'polish' the corrosion off the rotor.

The other thing that causes squealing from a wheel are the brake shims. Try cleaning things first.

'00...noise (sounds like it could be a bearing) when the defroster is turned on. Same noise is heard when the A/C is activated. If they are left off, everything is normal. The interior fan functions as...

Check the heater fan motor they have a tendency to have the shaft bearing wear out and make a squealing noise from time to time depending on how the shaft wobbles and that is the reason you don't hear it when the heater and ac is off.

Squealing noise while driving

Did you check the rest of the U-joints. If you have a hanger bearing, you should have a 2 piece drive shaft and thus 3 more U-joints that could be bad.

RF266AASH model. Refrigerator section fan rubbing

Hi, you have 2 fans on this box. If the fan in the freezer is ok, that's the evaporator fan, the other one is the condenser fan and sounds as though it is hitting a piece of the fiber panel. Anyway, it is located in the back of the unit. Get behind it so you have room, and you should have a fiber type panel at the bottom . Remove it to expose the motor and blade, coil, and the compressor. Look it over good to see if you can see if it is rubbing on something. The motor may be going out. While you are back there, try and clean the front of the condenser coil by checking to see if there is a film or sheet of lint or duct built up on it. This will cause high freon pressures in the system and play H....LL on the compressor, the fan motor and operation of the unit. Keep me posted on what you find out.
PS Unplug it and check the motor bearings by gently moving the motor shaft back and forth, or from left to right. In and out play is fine. If it doesn't spin true and is noise, the bearings are going out and when the motor gets hot, it will stop. If this is the problem, you will have to get one at a appliance parts house. Let me know.

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.
