SOURCE: Loud humming noise from subwoofer

if it is a powered sub you should lift the ground. you can do this by adding a three prong to two prong adapter. you know, like when you go to plug something in and the cord your plugging in has three prongs and the outlet your plugging in to only has two. it doesn't have the hole for the ground so you go get a little grey adapter that has three holes on one side and two prongs or tabs on the other.if that doesn't take the hum out (actually, is keeping the hum from getting in) you have a problem with the amplifier.

sounds like you may have to replace your fuel filter is it origional or have you replaced it before ? if the fuel pump is screaming then there is usually a restriction in the line sometimes caused by dirty fuel filter , its also possible that the electric fuel pump is on its way out they will screem when they are ready to retire first replace fuel filter and monitor the sound if it comes back after replacing the filter then you will need to have a pump replaced .also check the level of fuel in your tank when you hear the noise sometimes the level of gas in the tank drops leaving the fuel pump unsubmerged in the fuel making it easier to hear the noise follow me . replace fuel filter and diagnose the sound from there thanks for using a fine web tool like fixya

SOURCE: My up flush toilet makes a humming sound every 5

The pump has either gone bad or it is siezed can try to unplug the pum and let it sit for a few hours then plug it back in... sometimes if you jog it on and off a few times you can get tiit to break loose and work again...if not you will have to take it out and replace the pump.

We have a saniflo compact the toilet will flush 3 out of 5 times and the motor sounds fine but the other times when flushed it will sound like it is trying to flush and then just turns off at the end of...

This could be a problem with the capacitor that has gone bad or something stuck on the blade or impeller and is not allowing the waste to be pumped out. Typically when the capacitor has seized up or there is a clog on the drain pipe, blade or impeller; the unit will just hum and not pump the waste out and eventually back up on the toilet and overflow.

Toilet will not work. when plugged it it hums even if i dont push the button,

When the unit is humming it could be something stuck on the blade or impeller preventing it from spinning. The drain pipe can be clogged or the capacitor which drives the blade and impeller may have gone bad. Tipically when the capacitor goes bad it will just hum and not pump the waste out.

2. Binding of motor shaft. (something stuck in impeller) Does motor turn free. IF not check for jamed impeller. If it she sp2605x7 you can view a manual here:

Humming sound from the washer

Sounds like the pump is locked up for some reason could be something stuck in it,I have pulled a lot of nickels out those for some reason, they are the perfect size to get down into the pump and get stuck.

Frigidaire FWX233RES4 washing machine won't work

Sounds like there's something such as a small sock that has gotten sucked into the pump. This will keep the pump from spinning, cause extra noise, and the belts may appear fine but it may be stretched... if you're willing to deal with a little disassembly, unhooking hoses, spilling some water, you can probably handle this.... Good luck and let me know if you need any more assistance..

Stalled Motor

quite possibly the drain pump which would cause it to stick in rinse cycle. the humming noise you heard is probably the drain pump powered up but jammed. likely cause is a foreign object stuck in the pump impellor - main culprit is bits of bra wire. take the pump to pieces and extract whatever is jamming it.
