It could be the element is slightly loose in the unit and causing a mechanical vibration or if its at the control this could also cause a mechanical resonant vibration

I have a Honeywell thermostat. The thermostat clicks to turn the air condition on but the outdoor unit does not turn on. The fan clicks on though.

I assume you are referring to the indoor fan coming on. If the fan on the outdoor unit is coming on, and the compressor is not, you have a control problem with the outdoor unit, I recommend calling a service man. Make sure you have power to the outdoor unit. There should be a service disconnect on the outdoor unit, connect and disconnect the power, you should hear a hum when the power comes on, put your ear to the housing of the outdoor unit and you will hear the power come on when it is turned on. If no power, or hum, check your breakers in the house electrical panel, see if any are tripped. Next step call a service tech.

The car has been seemingly acting as if it is out of gas. I think its the fuel filter. But today it cut off all together. It will still turn over but will not crank. She my daughter said it also smoked a...

more than likely a clogged fuel filter[hopefully] if not that lets try this before you do anything.turn your key to the 'on' position can you hear a slight hum coming from the fuel pump in the gas tank under the rear of your car. it may take 2 people. one to turn the key on and one to listen at the rear of the car.try this several times to see if you hear the hum. if you hear the hum,the fuel pumps working. and then you know it's most likely a clogged fuel filter.if no hum heard,go under your hood to the main engine fuse box[black box] take the cover off of it. on the underside of lid,look for fuel pump relay,replace that relay with new one.if it's a fuse,replace the fuse. if this does'nt repair your problem,the fuel pump has went bad and in need of replacement.the pump is located inside the gas tank. the gas tank will have to come down and out in order to replace the bad fuel pump.try these solutions to see if they help,if you need further assistance,please repost your question to and thank you for choosing wish you the very best of luck!

Hello, i have a roper electric dryer that just hums when i try to start it. i checked the belt etc and they were ok. i took the drum and belts etc out and put everything else back together and i still...

Bill. You may very well have a bad motor, or possibly a blown thermal fuse. You will want to try to determine where the hum sound is coming from to figure out where your problem is.
If you have the drum and everything out and you try to start it and hear the hum coming from the motor, try turning the motor shaft by hand to see if it may have been bound up by something (like a pencil or sock falling down the lint chute).
If the hum is coming from the timer area only, then I would be checking the thermal fuses in the back of the dryer located on the blower outlet, and on the heater housing. The one on the blower outlet should be a skinny white one with two wires, the one on the heater is on the top of the heater element and also has two wires going to it.
You can check the thermal fuses easily by bypassing them and then checking to see if the dryer starts. DO NOT leave them bypassed as they are safety items to prevent the dryer from catching fire.
Good luck with this!!

Humming noise when volume over 40

This hum could be from a ground loop or a bad main board in your TV.
1. Try removing all the inputs from the back of the TV.
2. Unplug the TV for about 3 minutes and plug it back in.
3. Turn on the TV and go to HDMI1 input.
4. Turn the volume up to see if you hear the hum.
5. If you hear the hum without any inputs into the TV, then the problem is with your main board, or with the quality of power you have going to your TV (your wall outlet may have an open or bad ground). You can try plugging the TV into a different outlet across the other side of the house (to try a different circuit) to see if your power is the problem.
6. If you don’t hear a hum without any inputs into the TV, then the audio hum is caused from one or more of your inputs.
7. You will have to plug in one input at a time into the TV, and turn up the volume to see if that one input is creating the hum. If the TV hums, then you have a problem with that device and or the cable that connects it to the TV.
8. There is a chance the hum will occur when two or more devices are connected to the TV at the same time. So be careful of this issue. This issue is not the fault of the TV and is a grounding issue between the devices.
I hope this information has helped you.
Good Luck.

Turn on the organ and get a loud hum.......

Chances are you're hearing "60-Hertz" hum that comes from poor filtering in the organ power supply. Electronic circuits need direct current (DC) but our power lines supply alternating current (AC). The power supply converts the AC to the various DC voltages needed. Parts called filter capacitors smooth out the voltage, and if they go bad or lose contact because of bad connections the result can be the hum you're hearing.

There are other possible causes, but the filtering is so common it's a good place to start. You don't give the age of this organ, but if it's one that has been around a while, it's a good bet some of those capacitors are worn out.

If you can post a follow-up with a make and model, I'll check some of the technician groups and see if anybody has service information.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Pipes humming in house

From your description, I am guessing you are on a deep well with this answer. I think you have an issue with the well pump. To isolate it do this...........

Turn the main supply valve off to the house. Your well tank should have a hose bib on the well tee. Hook a hose up to that and run it outside. Open the valve to the hose until you heard the pressure click on which activates the pump. After the click close the valve and listen for the hum. If it still hums it is the Well and not the piping in your home.

Will follow-up.............

Please rate this response after testing and Good Luck, Phil
