See if it's printing or not, usually the fuser gears wear out and either the gears need replacing or the full fuser assembly, there are other possibilities but this is likely the cause

NOTE: try removing the cartridge then turn on to make sure it's not that


thanks for rating

Maytag top load washing machine 2 years old


Hi,

This could be partly the clutch/break assy. You need to be able to run this with the lid open in the spin position. Activte the lid switch with a pencil or something. Reach in and hold the spin basket and then turn the washer on in spin. Hold this basket for 1-2 minutes then release it and let it reach full speed then stop the washer by turning the timer off or releasing the lid switch. See if the hard breaking/noise is better. Keep doing this untill it comes to a smooth stop and the noise is gone at the stop. Not sure this will cure the noise in the spin starting up problem or not, but start here. the clutch gets rust on the pads and this burnishes the break pads, removing this rust that makes it grab.

Goodluck..

How we can solved the hp lj p2055dn printer noise


Hopefully one of the first four suggestions helped you. If not if you could post more detail as to what kind of noise is the machine making: a grinding noise, a squealing noise, how loud is it. descriptions such as that would be helpful in diagnosing the issue. Without a description of the noise any of those first four posts could be relevant. The easiest thing to try first would of course be a toner cartridge I have experienced them many times making noises especially if they're aftermarket cartridges. Other than that grinding noises are typically fuser related in that machine, with squealing and high pitch noises the description of the noise is very important because it could be a fuse or it could just be dirt in a gear cluster rubbing on a shaft or it could be the laser assembly. Ireally hate to post absolute diagnosis without enough detail especially when it comes to you having to spend more money. Hope this helps.

A carrier bearing usually pertains to the differential assembly and would not cause the symptom you describe. There is a problem with this transmission that causes it to not drop completely to first gear after a period of driving. Ford is aware of it but I do not believe they have initiated a recall. Call your Ford dealer(s) to see if you can find an honest man. Ask for the service manager.

The grinding noise could be asking for lube. If that is possible, do it.

Open the Transmission Housing and remove the two screws holding
the Motor. Lift it off the gears and test run it by itself. The motor
should run normally at different speeds. If it does, then you can move on
to the gears. Manually turn the Worm Gear and make sure nothing got jammed.
The Bevel Gear should turn smoothly.
