My frigiaire is not cooling and has started beeping and not getting cold I need help couse my food is thawing out

Open each door if light turns on then check that u can hear the fan and feal the air move. If good then check fan that is under or behind refrigerator. It too must be turning. If good carefully touch the top of the compressor. It should be warmish and lighlty vibrating. If its hot And or not vibrating it may be stuck... (fans also get stuck sometimes). .. unplug fridge wait 1 minute then plug back in while keeping your hand on compressor. If it moves quickly then vibrates quietly it should be working and if all else is good u may have a freon leak. If no movement i would suspect its stuck and you need a hard start kit for small refridgerator. About $20 from ac supply or online. Easy to install im sure youtube has a video of that as well. Ive fixed many a fridge this way..Freon can be replaced but requires a buddy with tools:)

Optoma th1020 - heard loud "pop" and now projector vibrates violently. Shaking so much that it cant stay in focus

Sounds to me like a blade has come adrift from one of the cooling fans in the unit, throwing the fan out of balance (The pop you heard will have been from the pice of plastic being ejected from the fan). Unless you are experienced in electronic servicing, I would not advise opening the unit to identify which fan - you'll almost certainly have to take it to an authorised repairer anyway since these fans are usually highly customised units

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Model: ARC-14S. Problem: It sounded as if something fell inside the unit while it was operating (cooling) then it started to vibrate horribly. The vibration is only...

Hi,Whynter Portable Air Conditioner has many moving parts, and they all make noise and cause vibrations. Some of these parts are more likely to causing shaking and loud noises, and sometimes this signals a larger problem, something to watch and scrutinize. If serious enough, it calls for a repair.

Loose Parts

Loose parts cause the majority of shaking and vibration noises in your air conditioner. A few of the most common loose parts include the air compressor, the piston rods and even the fan or blower unit itself. These noises are clunking, clanking sounds that occur along with a vibrating action. The only method of repair is a complete compressor replacement, which is a repair only a certified air conditioner technician is qualified to make. The compressor is a fully sealed component, so individual parts in the compressor cannot be repaired.

Fan Blades

Fan blades cause noise, shaking and vibrations even when properly secured. If fan blades contact the exterior structure of the air conditioner due to a bent fan blade or broken and misaligned grate, a constant, repetitive noise and vibration results, which sounds like a ticking or banging from the interior of the air conditioner. Vibration in this case is limited but still present.

Mounting Brackets

When an air conditioner shakes, there is a problem with the mounting brackets. These brackets hold the air conditioner compressor steady as it operates. Normal vibrations and shaking would otherwise occur without these brackets. A loose mounting bracket causes the air conditioner to rock back and forth and creates a clanking sound. As the compressor starts up, this rocking and clanking sound begins, resulting in a very loud and fast vibration and noise. It also occurs when the unit shuts down.

Other Sounds and Vibrations

Sometimes air conditioners squeal, hiss, hum or screech. Each noise is often accompanied by a vibration. Humming sounds along with a vibration may indicate a bad capacitor, the electrical part responsible for starting the machine. Hissing sounds tend to indicate a pressure problem while screeching and squealing sounds are fairly common in window air conditioners and in central air conditioners. This sound is also a result of the compressor motor. It usually starts when the unit turns on and continues through its normal operating cycle. Vibrations always occur in the air conditioner due to moving parts and the compressor motor's operation.

Hope it helped..

Whirlpool side by side does not cool at all

Simple Fix. That's cost around $40. You need to replace your relay/overload. Its mounted on the compressor. It should have a black box over it. Take it off then pull the part off the compressor and replace it with a new one.

Haier ESA 3185 AC won't cool; makes escalating loud vibrating noise near front panel/ filter

Have someone check the run capacitor of this unit. If the run capacitor is bad over shorted it can cause the unit to run and short cycle on a current overdraw. This makes for an electrical imbalance in the compressor motor. Next step is the compressor is faulty.
