Treadmill is making an extremely loud high pitch sound

My treadmill is making an extremely loud high pitch sound near the back of the unit. The belt is my guess but I don't know what to do. It gets louder and higher in pitch when I raise the speed. I think the belt may just need an adjustment but I have no idea how to go about it.

Could be a number of reasons - where is the black dust coming from? remove the motor hood and check for misalignment of the drive belt from motor to the front roller.

Unplug unit then remove motor shroud then plug unit in then start treadmill your going to use a flat tip screw driver as a stethoscope. Now place the flat on the motor at edge close to the flywheel put your on the handle your ear and you should be able hear if the loud noise form the bearing if not, then repeat procedure on the other end by the fan if the noise is pin pointed on the motor then replace motor, if not originating from the motor the proceed to the front roller.
Use a flash light and observe and locate the font roller shaft so that you can comfortably rest the tip without it slipping on either end of roller.
As before repeat the procedure that was performed on the motor if noise originated their then replace roller if not proceed to rear roller.
Use you flash light and look the adjusting bolts where the end caps are the proceed to insert the screw driver and make contact with the tension bolts listen to each side.

Try to better describe the noise.
Is it a
scraping of metal
grinding / rubbing
high pitched shriek like a drive belt slipping
Is it
underneath the body
under the hood
in the aircon
when you pull into gear
when you pull away
etc
Do a bit of detective work and come back.

When I go at about 40miles(speed ) it's a loud the gears don't stick but the higher the speed the louder it get's need to kind of know what to tell a mechanic is to where to start to look.I doesn't


I would suspect it is a wheel bearing issue, if it sounds similar to a baseball card in the spokes of a bicycle, stays somewhat same pitch just louder with speed that is where I would look. Does noise go away or change when making turns?

Loud squeaking noise when you start up the dryer could it be a bearing dull squeak not high pitched a little bit of a grind sound


It does sound like a bearing or at least a lack of lubrication. But it could also be belt slippage if it only happens at the start. If it is the bearing it would be continuous and slowly get louder and louder.

Dryer makes high pitched noise when rotating


the problem is in the motor itself, if you can lube the place where the bearing and the shaft is, this is where the sound came from

Squeeky noise


I own a Frigidaire Heavy Duty Dryer The Model # is FDE436RES1. It is 10 years old. When running the dryer it makes a very loud squealing noise although the heat and the dryer still work. Is this a belt or roller problem or does it sound like something else. It is very high pitched and can be heard throughout the entire home. I do not know much about dryer troubleshooting so your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
