Thats exactly correct,
it sounds like a snap, when it turns on
the buzzing hower is telling you its either going
or on the way out that buzzing is usually voltage arc on a bad or loose connection make sure the relay on the compressor is tight

FMV152KWA microwave buzzes when not running


Missy Uhland Bauman,

I understand that you are hearing a buzzing noise from your microwave, even though the door is shut and and it is not running. I would suggest to give the appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back. If you are still hearing a buzzing sound, I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or your local authorized technician.

-Best Regards-

2001 cad sts shuts off while driving


Turn the key to the on position and listen for a buzzing sound. If you do not hear one you have a bad fuel pump. If you do hear the buzz, Replace the fuel filter. If it is clogged it could starve the engine for fuel which would obviously kill the motor.

Hi, I have a amana fridge with freezer on the bottom. It has an ice maker and water dispenser. The big problem is a buzzing noise comming from the fridge, it start aprox every 16 min and buzzes for 10...


The buzzing you hear is the water valve trying to run water to the icemaker. If there is no water going to the icemaker it will be going into cycles one after another. And when it does it adds heat into the freezer. Turn the ice maker off and see if the freezer gets colder.

I have a goodman cpe30-1ab we set it to cool the out side pump and fan run about 5min and shut down the power relay starts to buzz and the fan moter gets hot real hot. all three wires to the fan have 110...


This could be several things. First turn of the power and make sure the fan turns freely using a screwdriver or something else that you can reach the blades with. If they do not turn easily you may need a new fan motor. If the fan stops, head pressure on the compressor will go up until it trips the High Pressure switch. It will also make the fan work harder so that it gets extremely hot just as you describe. Let me know what you find and we can go from there.

2001 xk8 when opening door wwindow drops aprox 1" when I shut the door now it does not go back up any simple fix thanks


with the engine running, run the window all the way down and hold it untill you hear a click, then run it all the way up and hold it untill it clicks again. That should reset the memory and it should work correctly.

NO PICTURE OR SOUND


The buzz is the power supply attempting to power the set. The click is the unit shutting down. Can you pleae post the make and model as well as whether or not the standby light is blinking? With that info we should be able to give you some options.

Thanks,
Dan

Outside Unit blowing air but not cooling and slight buzzing sound


The compressor is not coming on and some part of that unit has failed. Do you hear any clicking sounds along with the buzzing sound? Recommend that you shut the unit down (remove power from it) until a service tech can listen to it try to start up.

The power company-installed load management system is probably a red hearing. That system will either fully turn off the unit or allow it to turn on/start up.

The camera zoom got jammed


This can be caused by several different situations. Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include: *you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on *you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens *you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include: *A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown. Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include: *the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem. *the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance. All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 at my shop. Broken drive gears are generally This can be caused by several different situations.
