Question about Carrier XHB123D X/Y Series Heat/Cool Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have the same thing almost

The heater was turned on last night and along with it came a grinding vibrating noise. I live upstairs in our house and I could feel it in the floor (vibration) so it worried me a little but we kept it on all night around 230am it did this weirder grinding noise with a bit of a halt in between, it would die down then have a slow build up and climax of grinding and go back to the die down method. I just did not know what to do so I woke my husband up. He fixed it and then it just started doing it again so I asked him if I could turn it off even though it is cold. So I did and it is still doing it and I guess it will cut off eventually but I really want to fix it for good.

I recently got an Iron Cleer system; 3 tanks total. It is installed in a downstairs little utility room, with a door, along with the water tank/well pump. My problem is the compressor on top of the...

If there is available space, mounting it on a 4" inch, wooden riser (sturdy enough to handle the weight) with a rubber mat on top of the riser, may help to dampen the noise. As, it won't be making any contact with the concrete floor and vibrating and reverberating throughout the house. I don't see bolting the compressor to floor as a good solution. As, some vibration and reverberation would still be occurring.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

My GE electric dreyer, DHDSR46EGWW, is making squeaking noise and a grinding noise. My husband took is apart last night and put back together. When he started it the noises came back and he said it...

It could be the rear bearing or if not it have your honey take it apart again and inspect the rear rollers, if they turn freely then inspect the front bearing assy it is on the the door and if it looks worn down then it is allowing excessive pressure on the rest of the unit .

Rheem small 6 gallon water heater vibration/noise

If the water heater is working fine than I would not worry about the function of the water heater. What the problem may be is that some of your WATER LINES HAVE MOVED, AS THEY WERE NOT SECURED PROPERLY. The sound you may have heard was the Copper or PVC(Plastic) lines just getting back comfortable. I Suggest checking that your water lines are secured about every 3 or 4 feet with the proper ancjhor....Metal for metal pipe, copper for copper pipe, etc. Sometime as in my house, pipes are run through a hole drilled through a stud or a piece of wood, usually when hot water is run through this pipe. You can here an expansion of the water line interacting with the pipe expanding, if the hole in the wood was not drilled big enough......Experience of remodeling a very old house.......Joe

Hissing noise in house

To solve this you are going to need to start eliminating things. You say you hearing is good, well just make sure next time you hear the hissing put your fingers in your ears to make sure it goes away. If it doesn't then it is internal i.e you have tinitus.

Next start turning things off at the mains. Your hifi can't hiss if it has no power, so try turning it off at the mains by unplugging it. If it is not your HiFi then start turning other things in your house off. Till you stop it.
