If the hum is from the back of the unit around the amplifier, it may be the transformer. It could be that the mounting is loose.
It could also be that the transformer is going out.

Disconnect all the inputs to the unit, Still hum?

If the hum stops you have something causing noise to the input.

If you have it on a switched circuit, try moving the power plug to a different outlet that is not on a switch. If hum stops, then you have something on that circuit causing the problem

if all inputs are disconnected and it still humms good chance it is the transformer.

Why is there low humming in the receiver sub channel(only?)


Sounds like a shorted capacitor in the sub out circuit.

Y refridgerator just shut off! I swtiched the circuit breaker and it's just dead right now


1) Make certain there is power to the unit, 2) Check the power switch in the unit area (a rocker switch), 3) If there is still absolutely no power (no lights, no clicks, no hum, dead) then check the power to the controller located in the top of the refrigerator section. The controller operates all the components, so if it has power but there is no outputs (ie. nothing works) then it is the problem. This is unusual so check items 1 & 2 first. A worst case scenario may require pulling the unit forward to access the house wall receptacle.

Powered subwoofer has hum


First of all confirm if the hum is an internal or external problem.
Disconnect the RCA sub woofer input from the back of the unit and turn it on. If there is no hum it could be the interconnecting cable or the output from the receiver. But in the stand alone mode if the sub woofer hums when powered on you have internal problem and will have to be looked into by a professional.
Many a time the earth or the shield of the interconnecting cable is the culprit, because the sub sits on the floor and you might shift it for cleaning the floor and the cable can stretch and snap internally.

Air Compressor WL611800 not working!!!


does the pump even attempt to run? or does it just hum when you try to turn it on? If it just hums either the pump is locked up or the motor start switch or capacitor is faulty.

When we push the on button, you can hear a hum,


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has broken. the hum sound is the motor turning. Does it still get hot in the drum? If so then you need a replacement belt ($15-$25).You can open the rear or the dryer to confirm the belt is broken. Be sure to unplug from the wall outlet to avoid electrical shock.

Bought a used Martin Logan Dynamo subwoofer a couple days ago and have a very loud hum when the ac cord is plugged in, even if the speaker is not connected to an audio source. The "hum" can be heard in any...


Neither the amp or the sub have grounded power cords.

I have discovered the ML Dynamo takes about 30 minutes to switch to standby in auto mode.

With speaker level inputs connected to the Onkyo A807 amp, both units powered from the same wall outlet, Dynamo sub on Auto, the sub hums for about half an hour after the Onkyo is switched off, then the sub goes quiet. Not so good.

I connected a bonding wire between the two units on 3_7_09. If I smoked some old audio gear I could just look at that as an opportunity, right?

Works fine. Now I have the ML powered from the wall and working normally.

No base


Problems like this are usually the result of one of two conditions, the lack of a properly grounded phono cable connection at either the amplifier or the sub. To help isolate this problem, try plugging the end that goes to the amp into a jack such as the Tape Out. If the hum goes away then there is a problem with the sub out. If the humming doesn't change then it is either the cable or the Sub itself.
The other condition is what is known as a difference in ground potential between the amp and the sub. If both components have grounded (3-pin) plugs you may have to isolate the ground of the sub by using a 2 to 3 prong adapter and ground the sub to your receiver.

Humming noise.....


Try to isolate the grounds of the amp and that of your head unit. I mean 'lift' the ground connection. Just connect the hot side and not the ground wire - your amp's grounding and your head unit's grounding might have a voltage loop. smile when the hum dissappears.
