SOURCE: Microwave won't heat/Makes buzzing noise.

The symptoms you are describing are typical of a magnetron that has gone bad. Continuing to attempt to use the oven in its current condition can cause further damage. So, I would recommend not using it. Microwave ovens are considered dangerous and repairs should not be attempted by anyone that is not electronic saavy. The High Voltage Network inside the oven has voltage potentials of 14,000 volts and higher. If you feel this is something you wish to attempt, the Magnetron part number is 1156751 and costs approx. $158. Keep in mind, if the magnetron has been arcing and making a burning smell you may have burned the protective coating that lines the walls of the waveguide. If the waveguide is damaged it is not repairable. I do not know if this is a replaceable item on your model microwave. Double check your warranty information and/or owner's manual. In many cases the magnetron is warranted for several years beyond the limited warranty that comes with most appliances. Post back with comments and let me know if you want me to assist you further. In addition, if you provide me with your EXACT model number (located along the door opening) I can narrow down parts a little better. I know this all sounds discouraging, but I do hope I have been able to help you.

I had this same "loud clicking" issue after I replaced my first toner cartridge. The magenta ran out, I ordered from a discount online store, installed it, then had the clicking problem while printing (though the print quality seemed ok). I compared the old, empty cartridge that came with the printer the new one, and found them identical except the new one had a little square transistor board on the surface that is inserted into the printer, next to the round, black thing, which I think are gears... like a little round black flywheel. I noticed the old, empty cartridge had no such board, but just a square hole instead. What was happening was this little circuit board wasn't letting me push the cartridge in far enough to allow the “flywheel” to fully connect (or at least they couldn't connect without continually disconnecting too, which was causing the loud clicking noise). So I got a little knife and pried off the circuit board, and then took out this little grey, spongy, sticky thing under it. I reinserted the cartridge and noticed it slid in just a little bit more (maybe 1/8 in. more). But then the printer didn't register I had a magenta cartridge, so it wouldn't print anything for me! So I put the spongy thing back in, then the circuit board. But when I put the circuit board back in, I pressed it in about an 1/8 in. past being flush with the plastic it was resting on before... so about 1/8 in. past where it originally was. So, now, instead of being stuck, flush with the plastic, it sort of floats on this spongy thing and goes in slightly when you push on it with your finger, creating a small, square hole like the original cartridge I examined. Perhaps this is how it's supposed to be but it had a manufacturing defect. Anyway, I reinserted it again and it slid in just a bit further than originally. It works fine. No more clicking noise while printing! So obviously the little black gears are now firmly in place. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 watt baseboard heater is making loud clicking noise

Most base board heaters installation instructions say to attach to the wall with screws which are slack ( not fully tightened) in order to allow the heater case to expand and contract otherwise you get a clicking noise

SOURCE: The GE Profile of 13 years old makes a loud bang

Good day,
If it makes the clunk or banging noise when the compressor is shutting off, then yes, internal spring or springs inside the compressor have broken.
Only solution to that problem is a new compressor.
P.S. these things can run a long time with this condition, but ultimately .....

Thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: Back wheels make a loud clicking noise

Hi. Loud clicking noises from the rear wheels are usually caused by movement of the square steel key that fits into a groove on the axle inside the wheel hub. This is what drives the wheels.
You will probably get a click for each revolution of the wheels.
To fix it, remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease on the key and axle, then replace the wheels.
The grease will allow the key to move slightly without making a noise, and help stop it from wearing.
It sometimes helps to also remove the front wheels, and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the front stub axles. There is no key in the front hubs, but the grease helps to prevent the bearings siezing on to the axles.
Good luck. Neil.

HP Laserjet 8000 when we turn on the printer it makes loud noise as if something is stuck from the left side. Opening the left panel or the cartridge door stops the noise. We took out fuser and...

Usually when this happens, it's because someone got some heat shrink plastic wrap in the paper path, which melted to the fuser and locked it all up - you'd be amazed at how often that happens. Occasionally, it's from something jamming the gears that turn the rollers and fuser.

Unless you're good with tools, and can tear it apart and put it back together, I'd recommend a visit to an authorized, or at least qualified, service center/guru.

It is not normal to have a loud buzz associated with the electric heat. Try turning the heat off and running the fan only to see if the buzz continues. The buzz could be coming from any number of sources including an electrical component, the blower wheel, a loose fastener...etc.
The temporary smoke and smell could have been the dust burning off the element if the elements have not been used in a long time. However, if the elements have been running, it could be something got loose in your system and stuck between the blower and the heating elements.....for example, the wiring diagram could have come loose and worked it's way through the wheel. I've also seen owner's manuals left in the air handler that eventually got stuck in the blower. This should be inspected to ensure there is not a fire hazard.

I hope this helps and good luck. :-)

Why Samsung CLP-300 Printer making annoying/loud clicking noises?

So try to get the black toner cartridge out of the Machine. On zhe backside of the Cardridge is a gear. Try to turn the gear, maybe the Toner inside is clump together. When you can turn it very easy in both directions it's fine.

Whwn i turn the heat all the way up loud clicking noise if turned lower noise stops what could this be notfan

I think your talking about the heater fan? If you hear more noise as you increase the blower speed, there is something in the squirl cage or a problem with the blower motor itself. Leaves, paper or something lite on the pass side floor, it will get sucked into the recirculation duct,causing a noise.Remove the blower motor and clean out any debris, and inspect the squirl cage and turn the motor by hand to see if you hear any noise

Loud Grinding noise in Dryer

I know this prob is old, but I had the very same prob with my dryer (very loud squeaking noise). The prob was that there was a screw stuck between the rotating part and the stationary part. Meaning - look inside the dryer (main area - where the clothes go) and rotate it by hand. You may hear and see something causing the friction. Gerard
