Voltage regulator output electrolytics (220 uF/16V) heat up and start squealing/making geiger counter noise several minutes after power on. Noise stopped when electrolytics are sprayed with freeze spray. I intend to move the regs to the power amp heat sink (with heat sink greased insulators), add .1 uF tantalum caps to the regs output as close to the regs as possible and replace the 220uF/16V electrolytics with higher voltage units.

Most likely there are electrolytic capacitors in the power supply and also possibly in the amp sections that are going high in ESR.

It would be best to test all the caps with an ESR meter and then replace the ones that are out of spec. You have an excellent chance that this will fix the unit.

If you are not experienced at doing electronics servicing, you can give the unit out to a service center to have it fixed.

My Roper top load washer is making a squealing sound.. Is it a belt?


Most are belt drive on front loaders and on some top loaders but not all. Other culprit can be a dry bearing. Get into it a take a look. A length of plastic hose makes a good stethoscope to pinpoint the noise.

S8 makes a very loud vibrating buzzing noise with only the power lead plugged in


Check for ground loops. Also shut off any CFL or LED lamps inthe vicinity.

You may also have an intermittent connection on the input.

There is a lesser chance that there is an internal failure of a capacitor on the amp power supply, but it is a possibility to look at if all the wiring is in place and soundly connected. The S8 has a high gain amp. It will pick up interference from CCFL or LED ballasting supplies it will also be able to pick up other switch mode power supplies. in vicinity of the input cable.

MAYTAG top loader makes high pitched squeal when agitating/spinni


This is a classic symptom of pulley/motor shafts/bearings in need of lubrication. It's not the agitator. You'll need to take the back off (with power unplugged) to access.

Celestion S8 Subwoofer


I would check the electroltyc caps in the power supply They general are in the first part of the power supply and there will be two of them . What they do is filter out transformer hum and help stabalize the circuit. I am not saying this is absolutely the problem but the capcitors are relatively inexpensive, Easy to change. And have a habit of going bad after a couple of years in use.
