Can I simply defrost freezer to solve a grinding noise that stops when I open fridge doors and gets louder when I open freezer doors?


Not knowing the type of Refrigerator, frost-free or cyclic-defrost-
My opinion is, the noise may be generated from the Fan in the Freezer -compartment,
It is mostly situated in the freezer, behind a removable panel at the rear wall, The panel has a grill, or is slotted to allow the cold air to flow.
The fan may be worn out.
You may hear a grinding or squealing sound.
The fan-blade may be touching (striking) something,
The blade may have moved along its shaft and strikes the housing.
It may strike solid ice ,
the ice can form, if there is a fault with the Automatic-Defrost.
You need to confirm if the fan blade rotates freely.
Do you know how to do that?

Garbage disposal makes loud noise, nothing stuck, blades turn freely


Bearings in the motor are worn enough to allow the grinder plate to rub against the side of the chamber.

Microwave makes sound like something moving inside


follow this steps and use the VOM , and fix it. God bless you

  1. MagnetronIf your microwave is emanating high pitched or growling noises during operation, the magnetron could be going bad. Normally a nearly silent part, the magnetron uses high voltage and induces the frequency required to cook food. Although normally not a safety hazard to operate, this is a sign that the magnetron is failing and will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Exhaust fan motorIf your microwave is making a very loud humming noise during operation, it could possibly be the exhaust fan motor. If defective the part will need to be replaced to silence the appliance once more.
  3. Stirrer motorAnother leading cause of a noisy microwave is an expired stirrer motor. With use this part becomes worn and makes a loud grinding noise, which is usually a leading indicator that the part needs to be replaced. The stirrer is a metal blade that is slowly turned by the motor. This action disperses the microwave energy in a random pattern, which heats the food evenly. If the stirrer motor is determined to be nearing expiration, it should be replaced to halt the grinding noise.
  4. Turntable motorA very common cause for a noisy microwave is a worn out turntable motor. This is a relatively easy repair and will put an end to the noise once replaced.

Makes noise during wash cicles and dishes are not cleaned


Hi Kenneth Cho - I will suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. Is the unit making a grinding noise? If it is, then the dishwasher seems to have a defective drain motor. When was the last time the filter was cleaned? Do you noticed if the spray arm will rotate freely or if it is damaged? If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies. If any proves to be ineffective, it could possibly have a communication problem coming from the main control board, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit accurately.

Badger insinkerator, 1/3 HP does not start. Please help...i try the red button and didn't work...the blades aren't rotating....


Use wood broomstick handle down into disposal.
Wedge broomstick against side of sink opening and rotate blades free.
Or use allen wrench on bottom of disposal to free cutter blade.

If blades rotate freely and disposal has power, and reset is not tripped or will not reset, then disposal is bad.
I wrote ez disposal replacement steps:

Noisy


Hello janeknows. The shaft of the fan motor may have a bearing gone bad. Follow these steps to locate problem. #1-turn power off by tripping the breaker, place your fingers on the shaft surrorting the blades & SLOWLY rotate the blades feeling for a catch or bump. A bump felt I suggest replacing the motor. No bump #2- remove the screws holding the cover supporting the control switches. Located among the wiring is a box with 2 or three wires. This is a capacitor. Note the info on the capacitor (1.4mf125v). Contact the fans Mgfr they may send you one for free if not visit your local hardware store and ask. Replace the unit using the wire caps in the unit or snip & strip the wire using new wire caps. Note witch wire went where. Turn power on and test operation.

Unplug your unit and check the fan blade by manually rotating it with your finger it should rotate freely, check if the blade is not touching the fan blade frame,Check for worn out fan motor bearing. Check if the screws are not loose.

Automatic Grind not working


My grinder was not working properly, because the blade was not rotating freely. So we carefully chipped away some caked on coffee residue. Then it worked for awhile, but started to sound weird and only partially grind the coffee. So we applied a small amount of vegetable oil to the blade and let it seep down a little, and that was very succcessful! Just needed a lube job!
