Probably not compressor isolation mounts. Sounds like a fan motor issue to me. Press down on the fan motor mount and see if the sounds goes away.

I have a 95 Buick Regal.It makes a noise when running ,but if take the belt off it stops.


it depends what kind of noise, if its a licking noise the pulleys that the belt is being turned by could be bad (belt tensioner pulley ,Idler pulley etc.) if its a squealing sound like a high pitched whistle or like a rubber heal screeching on a tile floor constantly the belt is no good there is fabric on the inside of the belt and when it wears away you will get the chirp or squealing /screeching sound from this. inspection of that belt will tell you look at the grooves if looks like shiny rubber you found it if it doesn't and the fabric is there then a pulley is the problem bad bearing can make the belt slip resulting in the squealing good luck LATER MAN!

The O2 sensor could have come loose, also look around the area of the O2 sensor for any cracks in the pipe, look for black coloring on the pipe, this will indicate the leak area. As exhaust smoke is blackish and will coat the leaking area.

Chirping sound


Start with the AC , when the sound starts, turn off the AC and see if it goes away. If that works, you have a problem with the AC compressor pulley. Check the other pulleys by taking the belt out and turning the pulleys one by one and seeing if it makes noise. Let me know how it goes.

Carrier air conditioner isn't cooling the house. It is blowing air, but it doesn't seem to be cool air.


Check the outdoor unit to see if it is discharging hot air out of the top ofd the unit, check the insulated suction line to make sure it is cold or sweating. Try to listen to the outdoor fan and the compressor to make sure they are both operating

My Kenmore upright freezer is about 6 years and has recently begun running noisier than before. Not a rattle, and not a rough sound, normal operation sound but just louder. Should I wait until it goes out,...


Check the evaporator fan inside the unit
Check the condenser fan (if equipped) under the unit
Check the compressor mounts - they are rubber and could be wearing causing the compressor to be touching something under the unit, making the noise.
Check for any loose parts like screws, hinge screws, sheet metal etc.

The unit vibrates and has a pulsing sound. I have


These things tend to make a bit of noise, some more than others. You will not be able to do much about the internal produced noise but you can do a lot with the resulting vibration noise.
While the unit is running, take a few minutes and actually touch the unit ALL OVER, you are listing for any vibration noise to cease or be less so where you are touching. This includes the collection pan and the filter. Slightly Tilt the unit in all directions. Make sure that the door to the collection pan is closed properly. Take a few strips of the peel-off adhesive sided thin window/door insulation and apply to the bottom of the collector pan, if it sits ON the bottom of the unit. Place an inch or two thick blocks of foam rubber under each corner of the unit. Make sure the unit is level. Some where along here you will stifle some of, or maybe even most of the noise.
Good luck. :)

Treadmill noise


If it is a chirping noise it will be the mylar sheet under your walking belt. You will need it replaced after that kind of damage. If it is an actual grinding noise it will be something else.
