I was going to mention the coupling, since that is new, then I would suggest motor brushes or new motor. As long as you are getting sufficient power to the motor. about minimum of 12-13.5 volts

Whirlpool Side by Side. Husband replaced fan motor inside freezer. Ever since it's been replaced, it runs frequently and hums loudly. Any suggestions. He took the interior back out and it doesn't hum.


The fan blade touching the interior back cover????

May be the fan motor shaft is too long or may be he did not push the fan blade well inside into shaft so it is to much out. Thus touching the wall cover plate..????

Gear alignment on outboard motor


When the gear box ix in forward, it should make a ratcheting noise when rotated forward and should not turn at all when turning in reverse (or be resistant as your back spinning the water pump -don't do that) Once in gear (forward ) you should be able to mate the shift to the motor. I have removed the prop and nut and used a remote start to spin every thing together, but requires a lot of safety precautions.

If you are working on an older mercury, that shift rod can work both ways with disastrous results if you over spin the shifter to the back side of the detent.

My Reddy heater torpedo multi fuel heater won't start this year. It makes a loud humming noise for a minute or so and then nothing. If I try starting it a few times in a row it will make the noise...


Remove the top cover and rotate the fan by hand. If should turn pretty easily. If not may you can put some oil where the shaft passes through the ends otherwise you will need a new motor. If the fan turns easily then the capacitor is probably shot. I don't know if you can get the capacitor seperate from the motor or not. There is a small low pressure compressor attached to the back of the motor. Your problem may also lie in there. The covers come off easily so you can check it out.

Pump hums when switched on but does not work more than 20 seconds


hi i had the same problem with my booster pump motor it hum but did not turn. to make a long story short see if there is a metal cap on the back of your motor if there is pry it off and you should get to see the shaft turn the shaft with a screwdriver if it has a notch in it or if it don't turn the shaft anyway you can and make sure it turns easy. my shaft was tight as hell but i got it to turn and it started right up again and i had no problem. the hum means it is stuck and it shuts off because the breaker is tripping and after a few seconds it will click back on again, hope this helps

Fills the hums loudly


Hello , Have you looked inside the pump where the hose comes from the tub , there could be an item clogging it , also try turning the pump where the shaft goes by hand , it should turn freely.
You can also try turning the gear case with the motor off where the coupler is attached , 1 direction will agitate and the other direction spins , you should be able to turn the gear case both ways and it will not turn easy.
if all of these check out the motor could be bad but it is highly unlikely.
let me know how it works and if you have any other questions.

Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise then quits working.


Sounds like the motor's done. That thing is probably the start-run switch. Not worth trying to fix on an old motor. I've found dryer motors to be fairly generic, you should be able to find a replacement. I use Repairclinic.com when I can't get parts locally.

Kitchen aid dry motor noise


Try taking it apart again and try to turn the motor by hand. It should spin freely. If it does you've probably got a bad motor. If it is stiff or doesn't turn at all, then you might have missed something putting it back together. I wouldn't think you can overtighten the blower, it is probably something else, and with it apart it should be easy to see.
