Question about Sharper Image Dryers

Open Question

I have a model 51698 Electric Spiral Fan. Ser# 0015372. A noise-raddle is present when running at the bottom inside. Can this be looked to find the cause by the removal of the outer cover? If so is there a manual showing how to disassemble?

If you call sears about the light bulb problem, they will send someone to fix it at no charge. Just mention that there is a service flash because of a fire hazard. I found out about it here:

SOURCE: makes a shrieking noise about once a revolution

To get to the insides, you'll need to take the front off. Depending on the model, if may have snap clips to hold the top down- check the front two corners to see if you can lift the up. That will expose the screws that hold the front on. OR you may look at the front kick plate of the front panel, as there may be two retaining screws holding the panel on... if so remove the screws and tilt the front panel up until it releases.
Either way, after the front is off, you can take the front panel off the drum and then the drum should be able to be moved forward enough to check the rollers. Also check the belt tensioning pulley and the belt condition.

SOURCE: MSZ A12NA the inside fan is making noise how do i

It's a quite complicated procedure but i'll try to describe as best i can.

Below the air outlet there should be a couple of screws. They may have small tabs over them (purely for aesthetics!).

If you lift up the filter cover, remove the filters and remove filter cover (trying carefully not to break it... darn plastic!) there may be some screws above the air outlet.

Remove the fascia cover starting from the bottom. Pull it out over the louvre in the air outlet. It will be clipped at the top near the back. These can be difficult to undo. Once that's done, remove the cover.

For the next bit, make sure that the power is turned off to the unit. (power cord unplugged, isolator turned off or c/b off depending on power source)

Undo the screws on the power box.

Undo the screws on the drain tray and off the left side of the evaporator coil. (Big finned section of pipework). Make sure you support the evaporator coil as it's only connected with copper pipes which bend/kink fairly easily.

You'll need to pull the coil out a little (not too far) and take off the left hand rubber 'bearing' as such from the indoor fan barrell.

On the right hand side of the unit you'll find the fan motor (which is held in by the power box) There should be a grub screw that holds the fan barrell onto the shaft of the motor. This is usually undone with an allan key but have seen them with phillips head screws also. This grub screw might be in a few different places. It might simply be on the right end of the fan barrell or sometimes the righthand column of blades is missing a blade and the grub screw is accessed by putting allan key/screwdriver up missing portion. You only need to loosen the grub screw, not remove it.

Once loosened, the fan barrel can be pulled off the motor shaft and removed.

Once off, you can inspect it for obstructions or broken blades etc. To reassemble is just the reverse of these instructions.

Just a few things to note:

1. Be careful of the evaporator coil not to kink (or break!) the copper pipes or your a/c won't work properly.

2. The drain tray may have water in it if the a/c has been operating recently.

3. Make sure the power is off before pulling off the power box.

This can be a very difficult task and I would recommend having an assistant to help with holding stuff.

Hope this helps!

720 EF Fan oven fan making a scrreching noise now


It could be that cooking residue has run down the inside of the fan cover and it is restricting the fan movement. The fan cover is held on by four self tapping screws, one on each corner. Remove the cover and have a look to see if there are any rub marks on the inside. You should be able to remove some of the gunge by soaking the the whole cover in hot soapy water. If that doesn't work, buy the Lakeland brush on oven cleaner - that definitely works - you can use it on all of the inside of the oven. Whilst the cover is off, briefly turn the oven on to see if the fan still makes the same noise. If it does, it looks like the fan bearings are suspect and a new fan may be required. If not you have found the problem with the cover. Page 37 of the Handbook tells you how to replace the circulating fan.

Strange raddling noise from front passenger side


if the noise only happens when the vehicle is in motion...check the front suspension. place the jack under lower control arm ,then get a bar and lift up on the tire..ball joint issues are well known in blazers and cause this condition. if it does the rattle noise when its idling and to op temp--could be the cat converter causing the noise on pass side directly under passenger seat. when cold, smack the cat with rubber mallet and if any rattle is present, cat should be replaced so it dont cause further damage .hope that was helpful !!

IF the below mentioned information does not help, then contact a elextrical engineer worksman who can check the circuit board as it might also cause a short cicuit.

The inside of the freezer Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer, as follows:

  • If the freezer is on top, the fan is on the back wall, near the top or bottom, in the center of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the bottom, the fan is on the back wall, near the top of the freezer.

  • If the freezer is on the left, the fan is on the back wall, halfway up or near the top.

Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push in any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause. You can't lubricate or repair this motor. You must replace it.

The outside back of the refrigerator There are three components on the outside back of the refrigerator that may become noisy: the compressor, the condenser fan motor (if self-defrosting), or the defrost timer (if self-defrosting).

  • The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. You can see it on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. It is usually black and has black or copper-colored tubes and various colored wires attached to it. If the compressor is the device making noise, there is probably no repair that will reduce the noise. You will have to replace it--which can be quite costly.

  • If the condenser fan is making noise, there may be a build-up of lint or other debris on the fan blade. The fan is located near the back of the machine, sometimes behind a thin panel. To clean it, first unplug the refrigerator, remove the thin panel, and use a soft bristle brush to clean it. If there is no lint build-up or debris on the blade, you will have to replace the motor.

  • The defrost timer is often located at the bottom of the refrigerator, near the front and behind the kick plate. Occasionally the electric motor inside the timer may become noisy. The timer must be replaced to solve this problem.

The bottom of the refrigerator Noises detected at the bottom of the refrigerator almost always originate from the back of the refrigerator. However, sometimes the drain pan under the refrigerator will rattle. You may need to tape the pan in place to stop a rattle. Also see the “Outside back of the refrigerator.”
