The start relay on the compressor is going bad and must be changed out before you have no cooling at all.

My GDM-12 is not cooling. when I turn the temp up it make a loud humming sound.


If the humming last 3-5 seconds then makes a faint click sound and stops humming for a minute or two. Then resumes the hum again it may be your compressor locked down. Stuck. Most likely it is just a bad start capacitor not kick starting the compressor. A $6 part.

Dryer stops


If the hum is loud I would suspect something is jammed and the motor is stopped leading to a heavy current running through the motor. After 5 or 10 minutes I would anticipate the circuit breaker would trip or the motor would burn up. If the humming suddenly stops then a thermal overload switch might be activating and when it cools down normal operation resumes. This is my only insight.

My microwave has stop heating up food. What is the cause?


There are several things that can cause this:
1. Bad high power diode failure (most common and usually causes a loud humming sound when it fails initially then never heats again)
2. Bad capacitor (open or shorted)
3. Stuck Magnetron oscillator (Makes a loud humming sound when the Diode and capacitor are known to be good.) / Magnetorn failure
4. Door interlock safety switch failure. (You should hear 3 clicks on most microwaves as the door just opens or closes... if your microwave light does not come on when the door is opened you only have 2 micro-switches and only hear 2 switch clicks.
5, Main control board relay failure / main board failure.

Those are the most common reasons listed in order of usual failures. Each one of the above possible failures has a different troubleshooting procedure.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a weber E320 grill and it is making a fairly loud humming sound by the connection of the tank. I just had the tank filled and checked for any leaks. It was determined that the tank is not the issue....


It is the gas flowing through the diaphragm of the regulator. It is common here in South Florida where we have alot of humidity. It is nothing to be concerned. You can also spray soapy water around the regulator fittings if you are concerned of any leaking around the regulator.

I have a kenmore dryer, recently it has started to be loud, on start up and has a loud hum when running. It runs for 20 min and turns off. If you try to restart it just hums. if you wait about 30-45 min it...


It is possible the belt has come off the the tensioner pulley, or the pulley itself has locked up and is putting a strain on the motor making it run hot and tripping the thermal overload. Either that or the motor is getting weak and needs to be replaced.

Loud buzz when starting, then shutting down after 10 min.


Yes, this sounds like the motor cutting out on thermal lockout.

Buzzing intermittent


It sounds like the ice maker. If you don't have the water hooked up, and the ice sensor bar is in the down position, the ice maker assembly will attempt to make ice continuously.
Solution is easy: raise the ice sensor bar until it clicks in the up position. It will lock in this position, and the ice maker will not cycle anymore.
