Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Buzz when the unit reverses

When the drum stops and reverses, there is a buzz, a bit like a playing card in a bicycle spoke.
I removed the lower plate to inspect the squirrel cage and there is no obstruction, and there is plenty of clearance.
I also sprayed a bit of teflon lube at the shaft from the motor that spins the cage with no effect.
The noise is non-specific and so far, tough to put my finger on.

Thanks for any pointers.

    Oops... on further inspection, it is actually a DEIX2 dryer.

    Same problem, however.


    Fisher & Paykel DEIX2 Online repair manual?

    I've searched the World Wide Web, browsed the Internet and thoroughly abused Google and cannot find a digital copy of the REPAIR manual for the Fisher & Paykel DEIX2 Dryer.

    Anybody have one to scan & upload, or a secret, backdoor link to one?

    Oh, and the Owners manual was easy, here's one:

It fixed itself; when I bought the unit (used) the rear lower panel was missing due to ham-handed movers. This part has the exhaust port. While inspecting the unit, I tipped it fowrard and backwards; the buzzing stopped when tipped fwd.
Once I installed the new part, whatever was causing the interference or harmonically upset.. all is good.
I DID receive the parts manual from a friendly parts department; I'll try to post that here somewhere.

I have a Hotpoint Aqualtis wash/dryer which stopped working with a 'F12' fault. Now when I turn the socket on I get an immediate really loud whir/buzz.

possibly the main drive belt has either snapped or jumped off the pulley and this allows you to turn easily by hand the whir/buzz sounds like system in coming into play but with no belt to drive nothing more happens, the front lower portion of the machine could be the water pump working overtime unable to drain ???

I have a problem with the hands on Buzz. The hands were moving fast, but all of a sudden it moved slow. How can I make the hands move fast?

To make the arms move faster, remove all the batteries and the batteries on the remote control.
Buy brand new batteries and insert them in. Turn buzz to TRY ME on his back. Stand him up and turn him OFF for 5 seconds. Then turn him to PLAY and the arm will move faster.

My turtle beach x32 wont stop buzzing unless i point the microphone towards the tranmitter

Use a different audio cable. The one that comes with the X32s causes the buzz. I used a regular RCA to 1/8" shielded stereo cable and the buzz is gone. Also don't use the rear usb ports on the Xbox those are noisier and will add a tiny bit of noise even with a new cable. Use the front usb on the Xbox or one from another device. I use the usb on the back of my cable box. That with a new audio cable gives me zero buzz.

One of my tires on my quinny buzz keeps going flat how can this be fixed? Is there a tube inside the tires?

Yes there is an inner tube which sounds as if it has a puncture. I bought replacement inner tubes off e bay for mine when the same happened to mine. You can then either take the tyre off yourself and replace the tube (bit fiddly unless you have a suitable tool like a strong screwdriver for releasing the tyre) or try taking it to your local bicycle shop who could no doubt remove and refit the tyre for you for a small fee.

Buzz on headphones after PatchMix DSP starts

Buzz is caused by a bad ground or interference in your shielding check out your cabling or plugs that is where the problem lies.

Buzzing noise coming throught my headset on my turtle beach x1 headphones

Check if the buzz stops when you remove the talkback cable. If so, then try a wireless controller if you're using a wired one. Also, don't use a play and charge kit because it causes a lot of buzz on the headset.

Makes a loud buzzing noise when running, think it is coming from the lower spray arm

My dishwasher (very basic GE model) did this once. The buzzing only happened when it was washing the dishes, not during drain or fill parts of the cycle.

In my case, the issue turned out to be a bit of plastic (part of a drinking straw) that was stuck in the pump assembly. Whenever the pump was on, this bit of plastic was getting dragged over a metal filter plate, and sounded a lot like a kid with a card clipped in the spokes of a bike.

Good news was that I didn't need to buy any parts, simply disassemble the pump housing and pull out the plastic.

Bad news is that it took me a few hours to get the dishwasher out, apart, back together and re-installed.

Good luck with yours!

Does the quinny buzz seat 2006 and carrycot fit the 2008/9 frame

Hi new frame should be ok, the only frame that is different is the older 2005 frame, if you remove your seat unit and check the posts on your seat unit (the bits that slot onto the buzz chassis) if they are both the same and have rounded ends then this is the older model and wont fit the newer frames, but if one of the posts is rounded and the other is shaped like a turret then all the frames 2006 onwards will be ok. :)

Audio buzz

Check to see if reversing the plug takes away the buzz. Some times turning the plug over in the wall socket i.e. reversing polarity, will remove the buzz.

Kenmore dryer


With the little bit of information you have given I would assume you have something stuck in one of the baffels ,((or possibly the most common is a Bra wire in one of the drum seals on the drum))

or a more in depth problem would be something in blower wheel (like the old playing card in the spoke of a bicycle)) when we where much younger.
