Question about Speed Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Dremel 3000 makes a grinding noise and fluctuates speed while in the low speed range. Why is this?

I have a Drexel 3000 that Iveused on three occasions now. At low speeds 2-4 it seems to have trouble spinning and makes a grinding noise. It will also fluctuate speed dramatically while on a single speed setting but again, I only notice this at low speeds. I checked the motor brushes and they looked fine. Any ideas?

I have one that I must keep pressing ******* the speed control with my thumb during use otherwise it is hopeless except at or near maximum. The potentiometer is of poor quality.

I have a multi max mm20 Drexel tool. It worked great yesterday. Today it quit. Now it will not run at all. It did not seem to be overheated. What to do? What would be your suggestions?

Assuming that the tool turns free and it was supplied with power, the least frustrating solution is to buy another one however if you are the hearty "do-it-yourself" (or the "I don't want to throw it away if I can fix it") type then it can likely be fixed. Your problem sounds like a failure of the speed selection switch. It is possible that you can run the switch up and down and spray the internals with contact cleaner and get it to work but the switch needs replacement. I recommend that you photograph the disassembly process to facilitate reassembly. To take the tool apart, remove all parts that come off and store them. Remove the brushes and inspect them. They should show normal wear. If they are broken, replace them. You will need the correct screwdriver (Phillips or other, look carefully) to take the case apart. The case will split down the middle and the important parts will try to fall out. The switch may not need a soldering iron to replace it. I recommend you locate and inspect the switch before you order a new one from Dremel. Their parts department is very understanding and helpful. If you really have a "Drexel" tool then your chance of success is pretty low but not zero. Don't despair. Best of luck.

Signs of awheel bearing going on a daf cf85 430 articulated lorry 2004 ?

Wheel initally with start making a washing machine noise or grinding sound when doing sharp turns the opposite of the wheel side as the outer race will generally go bad first. You may also notice the rim heating up due to friction. Grinding at low speed or a growling sound would dictate an inspection.

Dremel multipro variable speed only starts in 4 or 5 speed

with tool unplugged rotate tool end with your finger tips if it gives any resistance to this your bearings have forign material in them (happens if your doing grinding allot) if a liberal dose of light oil (sewing machine) does not improve this friction im sorry but you;ll have to replace tool to run slower speeds

Grinding/whirring noise from A/C above 3000 rpm

your air compressor pump is going. My car is actually currently doing the same exact thing. It will eventually lock up. BUT if you're lucky, you may just be low on R-13a (coolant)

Fan makes grinding noise when on speeds two and three. . . sounds fine on slow

The bearings are wearing out, speeds two and three are exerting enough force that the bearings are grinding, slow speed does not have enough force to do this. Soon enough, slow speed will make that noise and the fan will ultimately stop working. Have an electrician come in to look at it, if it is still under warranty, call Hunter.

1998 4wd short bed ram 1500, 5.9L. 115000 MILES- I hear a low freq. gear type noise in the rear end.sound level stays pretty much the same thru speed ranges. there is no grinding noise, just sounds like...

Have you checked the fluid level? If not, it could indicate it's too low. This isn't a 'normal' sound, but hopefully topping off the gear oil in the rearend will quiet it down.
