C46 Squeeling Noise

All printers are greased on all moving parts apart from where the paper has to pass, as they don't want grease to get on your paper. That is why a lot of printers squeel, it's because some rollers are not lubricated. Particularly the final roller on the Epson C46. You can see this roller by looking through the paper exit tray (where the paper comes out). It is usually black in colour and has 9 bearing points which are just plastic against plastic and these rub together causing plastic dust to be created and this is what causes the squeeling.
Simply dab a tiny smear of grease or oil on the top of each bearing point (each is open at the top) and your noisy printer will become a quiet printer.
Please note that 8 of the bearing points are easily accessible, but the 9th being the far left one as you look in from the front and is about a half inch behind a grey plastic side wall. You can get to it with a small flat head screwdriver, so use one of these to apply the oil or grease.
Please be careful to only use a tiny smear of lubricant or the excess will drip or fall on your paper exit tray and ruin your paper.

How do I fix my whirlpool cabrio dryer model wed6200swi so that it stps the noisy squealing sound when it runs?


A loose or worn BELT can make funny noises

Or the idler pulley that puts tension on the dryer drum drive belt could be worn out. If the pulley is bad we recommend also replacing the belt.

The glides on drum worn and making metal to metal contact.

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.


Sometimes an item can get stuck inbetween the drum and the housing and scrape and grind making funny noises, things like coins, bra wire, nails, hair pins, etc sometimes u can just remove the cabinet and observe by turning the drum by hand or looking for scratch or scrape marks on housing.

The blower:

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.

The bearings:

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.

The bearings TEST by moving drum by hand u may be able to feel loose or rough movement. And listen to sounds when turning it.

The drum rollers or castors:

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers.

Check for cracks, dryness, or damage and not engaging drum properly. Sometimes u can use high density LITHIUM BASE gear grease to re oil/grease them.

I have recently bought a Craftmatic CC4 which is 10 years old and am wondering if I should be checking the oil level in the transaxle unit. Whilst it runs fine, there is a clicking sound sound consistent...

hi,i don't advise this...the fluid used is normally a semi fluid grease , however reassembly must be done correctly otherwise you could do some real damage, if there is a click on a complete resolution then i would say a bearing is worn, the worm gear that driven from the motor will be worn and that could be making the click as well but as long as it not slipping and excessively noisy i would leave it alone, the motor also has a bearing that can become noisy ... one thing to note is so you find a worn or damage gear, what are you going to do ?? unless you know someone who can recreate another one ?

if it is noisy the noise could be the sum of all the gears noise so replacing just one gear wouldn't be enough

Replaced transfer roller and now the printer makes a ticking noise

What you are hearing is actually the transfer roller.

As the printer is moving paper thru the machine, the transfer roller is also moving.

There is a clear lucite/plastic window on the transfer roller unit.

There is a sensor that reads light through that window. when the transfer roller fills up with waste toner, the light no longer can pass through this window, and you get that "change transfer roller" message.

Prior to "filling up", that window is kept clean of dusty toner by a small plastic " flapper" that goes round and round, flapping that window clean.

That is the noise you hear. It is not going to harm your printer in any way, however, you just happened to get a noisy unit.

If this is a brand new, genuine Dell replacement part, I would contact Dell and have them send you another one, telling them that the new one is defective and excessively noisy.

If it is an after market, or refurbished replacement, you probably got it at a discount, and as I said, it will not hurt your printer, it is just going to be a little noisy

Our printer is making a really loud, sort of grinding noise and then it jams. why is it doing this? When we start to use the printer in the morning it also makes the grinding noise when it's warming up.

You need to check a number of areas, but first try to determine where the noise is coming from...

1) First, where is it jamming...If under the cartridge, the cartridge drum may be too tight. If you have another or an old one (even if empty) try switching it out.
2) If the sound is coming from the front, your manual feed rollers (front) or main paper tray pickup rollers or gears (below) may be slipping.
3) If the sound is coming from the rear, check the fuser gears. It will have a main, big gear that meshes with the big drive gear (swing gear) inside the printer. The fuser is the accessed by removing the rear cover. The fuser can be very hot, as its job is to fuse the toner to the paper just before it exits into the bin. Let it cool off, then remove, inspect the gears for wear, re-seat it and test print--listening again to see if the sound is still there or gone.
4) If the sound is coming from the top rollers where the paper exits, check the gears that drive these rollers for wear and/or skipping teeth.

One of these will be the culprit. The hardest part is isolating the source of the sound.

Depending on the type of hammer drill you have, the noise should only be heard when you are applying pressure to the material you are drilling. Some drills have 2 bump plates that cause the hammer action. This is what causes the noise. It kind of sounds like the gears are stripped but the chuck still goes just fine. You do not need to grease this, it will make this noise regardless. However you may want to take a look at the gears and make sure they are ok. You may want to add grease if the old grease is broken down or there is not enough in the gear housing. Larger hammer drills have a piston and actual hammer. Such as the Bosch Bulldog series. If it is this type and there is noise when you are in drill mode there may be more serious problems.

Brother hl5250dn printer making noise during paper picking

check the rear end of the paper tray. There is an adjustable bar for paper size that is probably not locking into place. If this moves accidently when refilling the paper tray. it may cause a rather unnerving noise. You need to adjust this bar to fit snugly with the short edge of the paper stack.

Printer ink cartridges move along the bar and then stop

All the HP 500 and 600 series are noisy like this. To help the problem, you would need to open the unit and blow out any dust and paper particles with low pressure compressed air. Put on some latex (medical type) gloves and wipe down and clean all surfaces with a paper towel soaked in 90% isopropyl alcohol (it will be messy). You will have to use multiple paper towels. Check all rollers and insure they will roll. Check the carriage and drive belt for damage. I would also spray a Q tip with WD-40 and swab a light coat on the carriage bar and at the metal edge of rollers (where there are bearings). If this doesn't resolve the banging noise, then there may be a problem with the stepper motor or gearing (plastic gears). This is not normally user serviceable and is not cost effective to repair. You buy a new printer.
