    are you talking about the pool pump? If the pump is humming and then turning off, you may have one of a few possible problems. If your pump has not been louder than normal, your bearings should be fine. Sometimes when bearings go bad (usually due to a shaft seal leak) the motor will get louder and louder, then eventually seize. It sounds more like you have a blown capacitor. On some pumps there are more than one. Most pumps have a start and a run capacitor. Sounds like your start capacitor is done.

This is your motor that hums not your filter, and could be many things. A clog in your pump that has bound up the impeller, a bad capacitor in the motor, bad windings in the motor. Or many other things depending on type and brand of motor and pump.
If you seperate the halfs of the pump and try to start it. If it starts it is something in your pump and you should contiune breaking down the pump and clean it as you go. Make sure while you have it apart you change the seal and "O" rings. If it still does not start it is probally in the motor and if you pull the wires you can probally take the whole thing to your local pool store and have repairs done there. Most good stores will do this for parts and a very minimal service charge if any. I hope this helps but it is hard to say as your problem has very little information.

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause

Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

I have a building to building PA system and in some building I'm getting AC humm through the speakers. Is there a AC filter out there that could eliminate the humm?

You´d better use a power conditioner, such as Panamax. Besides, it will protect the system against power surges and will eliminate the humm.

LGA30AW Dyer Runs for awhile, then wioll turn itself off. When I try to restart it makes a buzzing noise. If I let it sit it will turn on once more but only a short time.

The problem here is that the motor is starting to go bad. The start winding wires are going bad. When the motor gets HOT, the thrmal fuse turns the machine OFF until the motor cools down and then it HUMMS as it tries to start or will just HUMM and not start at all.
When you replace the motor, ALSO check that the hole in the wall to wherever it goes out is NOT CLOGGED UP by a birds nest or LINT BUILD UP that will restirct the hot air from exiting the dryer.
PLEASE CHECK this so that it will not damage the new motor you put in.

Cold weather does not start

Need to listen for fuel pump humm for proper operation. Shoud humm for about 3 seconds with key turned in the on position. Humm will sound from gas tank where the pump is located. If it does not humm. possible Faulty Fuel pump relay or pump. It will need ferther diagnosis.
