I'm assuming you mean that lights in the house are blinking and that there is a buzzing from the unit. Sounds like a motor issue or a drum that has something which is overloading that motor. It is also possible that you have a defective circuit breaker that is arcing or an arc in the relay/timer board. If these hints are not helping, then I suggest you get someone in.

Heat Pump makes a surging/buzzing sound every 20 seconds

You might have a short going to your reversing valve. Check the temperature of all three lines out of the valve. The one on the left should be cold and the one on the left should be warm hot. . Check voltage to the valve.if it fluctuates that might be the reason for the buzz.

Hotub clicks and then makes buzzing noise when turned on.

does it blow a breaker? check to see what is going on by unplugging all the pumps, blowers lights and anything else plugged into the circuit board (heater too)
turn the breaker on once everything is unplugged and then proceed to turn the spa off, plug one item back in and turn the breaker back on.
Do this until you find the buzzing....

You may actually have a back relay on the circuit board causing the buzzing by not latching in when the pump or something is trying to come on.

The buzzing noise is probably an electrical relay that controls the motor. They have a spring assembly on an arm. When you energize it it creates a magnetic field and pull the arm down into contact and starts the current flow to the motor. If it's buzzing, the relay is probably bad and need replaced.

Loud buzzing noise

Mine is loud also when playing games. When playing DVD's it is not. I think it is a factory defect on some of the systems. I would not attempt to pull apart the DVD drive and try and fix it. It is working and on an XBOX 360 you should feel lucky that it is.

After much research, it became apparent that the most logical culprit after the lamp was the color wheel. It has been replaced and the set is working again.
