High pitched sound in house

Hello,
I hear a high pitched sound in my house, not noticably coming from the saniflo location but wondered if this could be causing it? As the 2 saniflo units I have are behind tile I was trying to determine if this was the cause before doing a lot of tile work.

The 2 tests I performed were to shut off all the power to the house at the mains and to shut off all the water from the mains at different times. In these two situations does the saniflo still operate as neither test stopped the noise. I'm getting desperate please help. Thanks very much!

Saniflow units are completely silent, except when actually pumping. It's worth noting that because they are electrically operated they will not work if you have a power cut - so don't use toilets or anything else attached to them if there's no power or you'll be in big trouble!
Another point about the Saniflows... it may be neat to put them behind tiles, but they will require regular access for servicing so it's not really practical. I advise covering them with a panel that can be quickly and simply removed, if you must cover them with anything, that is.
With regard to the noise (and I ask this in all seriousness), does anyone else hear it? Although you've tried turning off the water at the mains, it's still possible for noise to be transmitted along water pipes from elsewhere (as can be caused by leaks, for example, which can be quite high-pitched).
Apart from that, thought turn to possible insect infestation - bees, wasps or other things depending where in the world you are! Maybe you also need to consider when it started and whether you can connect other changes in your house with that time. Also, is it continuous or intermittent? If intermittent, is there anything else that happens at the same time?
If you find a cause, please do post a reply, as I'm fascinated to know what this is! If you need more help, please post your question again and I'll leave it for someone else to have a go at.
Good luck!

There is a high pitched sound coming from under my 2002 Jimmy. It seems to be originating in the vicinity of the fuel tank, catalytic converter, differential area. But I cannot isolate it. Possibles?


Fuel pump in the tank makes a high pitch sound which is normal. Turn your key in the ignition, but don't start, you should hear the high pitch sound with the pump priming the system. You will still hear it when started, it's annoying but normal. Different brands are quieter than other, I just replaced mine with a Delphi brand fuel pump which is a tad quieter than AC Delco stock pump.

High pitched noise from inside the TV when picture comes on


Hello randapaint,

This might be from the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer), or more specifically a short in the IHVT causing it to arc, producing the high pitched whine, you are hearing. Take the back off of the TV and try to detect where the sound is coming from, more then likely you will notice it coming from the section that contains a large component with a large red cable coming from it, to the top of the CRT (picture tube). Replace the IHVT (with the exact same model) if it is bad.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

High Pitch Sounds


In this model the horizontal drive coil vibrates and makes a high pitch squeal. Most times it is intermitent. Touching on the coil with something (non electrical, like wood) will make it stop or change it's pitch. The fix my shop uses: It's not to technical, but, we put fingernail polish around the coil. It's a remedy I've used for decades and has always worked. Some shops use a hot glue gun. With the back open you can hear the coil to locate it. When fixing the problem have the set unplugged. When a technician is working on a television while it's plugged in. He uses only one hand and stays away from the high voltage.

High=pitched hum


Hello, Using appropriate safety precautions, you can try prodding the various suspect parts (flyback, deflection yoke, other transformers), even lowly ferrite beads, with an insulated tool such as a dry wooden stick. Listen through a cardboard tube to try to localizing the source. If the sounds changes, you know what part to go after. Once you have located the guilty party, some careful repositioning, a strategically wedged wooden toothpick, or a dab of RTV silicone or hot-melt glue may keep it quiet. Best regards, Arpi
