Grinding Noise Under the Cover

Mower was working fine then it began to make a loud grinding noise....blade still turned, etc. Removed the cover and took off the top motor including the magnets and vacuumed and cleaned with alcohol and q-tips. Noise still exists. Any idea on what's going on?

Possible armature shaft are wobble. to check if i am right see the blade end & mark a spot against the mower deck & do the same other end of the blade. if the blade are not align on the same spot then the shaft are bent.

Was mowing fine then motor began surging and now blades will not engage or disengage

Because the mower began surging and now the blades do not work, I am thinking something electrical. The PTO and electric clutch would be where I would start. The clutch can be checked and should read 2 -4 Ohms.

I have a John Deere Sabre 38" 14.5 hp mower. It works fine at low speed but when you try to accelerate it makes a grinding noise

This could mean many things, innumerable possibilities, I will give you the most common, at low speed the blades will not wiggle unleveled as much as when they are accelerated, that grinding noise would, most likely, be your blades touching the sides or top of the protection shell or cover in your machine. Remove and level with those inexpemnsive kits and a grinder, also when you hit a rock, or in any case a root, while you are in use of your machine, this will slightly bend one side of the blade making it impossible to see by eye but when the blades spin, this will be very noticeable by the noise made. Good luck

Craftsman Air Comp. 6 hp oil-less, 33 gal horz. tank - sounds really loud

Sources of noise from craftsman oil free compressors (could be Made by Campbell Hausfeld or Porter Cable) include loose fan, failing bearing/s on the piston rod and housing, failing seal ring on piston, air filter intake and loose motor mounts. With the housing cover off, check the fan blade for cracks or loose screw. Turn motor by hand till the piston is at top of stroke. Examine the cylinder for scratches close to top. If scratched, air is leaking past vinyl ring making noise and causing longer fill time. If everything looks ok, suspect noise coming from bearings. Hard to tell if bearings are failing by looking at them. I have seen many failures of the piston bearing on the crank (fairly easy to change, I use alternator bearing from auto parts ) , however, the bearing in the housing just behind the crank bearing is much harder to replacable. Good luck with your fix-it project.

Sanipump toilet had a wipe put down it. i have taken the unit off the back and opened it but it wasn't blocked - put hand in and had good feel around! still making awful grinding noise when flushed. any...

it may have something stuck in the blade (on top of motor) or the impeller (at bottom of motor) to get to the impeller the motor complete will have to be removed out of the pump casing. Also check the discharge pipe for any obstructions. Also there is a pump cover plate located at the bottom of the motor and it will cause the unit to make a loud grinding noise if anything is stuck in there.

GBC Shredmaster 3220S stopped taking paper in and makes a loud,

Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.

What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene
