Question about Home

1 Answer

I turn on the fan in the bathroom and as the fan gains speed, I hear a clicking sound as it the fan blades were hitting something, and it sounded like it was solid. So I took off the grille and the light and there weren't any problems that I could see. I turned on the fan and there wasn't a clicking sound. I adjusted the wires that go into the recepticals on the fan so that they wouldn't hit the fan blades. I put everything back together and the clicking sound was still there when the fan started up and when it slowed to a stop, but not while the fan was running at full speed. I don't know what's going on here.

Are you tightening the grill to the point that it is pulling itself up to touch the fan or is it pulling something down to touch the fan? I would take the grill off and with the fan running, pull and push on the points that hold the grill in place and see if that action causes the fan to click. If it does, you need to trouble shoot from there. If not, an exorcisim might be in order.

I'm getting an intermittent loud flapping sound when the AC is turned on my 2009 Smart ForTwo


Question. Is the flapping at a very fast pace that would indicate the speed of a fan blade hitting something? If so, you may be on to something there such as a misplaced gasket or something has dropped/fallen into the blower box via a vent.

If it is not that speed then see the following..

Hope I can give you some direction. Speaking from a generic sense all ac/heaters these days have a door or doors in the blower box that control air flow from the main part of the box to different positions when you ask for vent, heater, mix, defrost etc..

Most these days are operated with a small electric servo/motor and unfortunately the mostly have plastic gears that wear and can "thump-thump" as the motor cycles trying to open or close the flapper door.

Try to change the air direction from Max AC to regular ac to heater, defroster, bi-level etc all with the AC switch in the on position if you have a separate on/off switch.

Listen to the sound and see if it comes and goes with a different location of the selector switch.

One last question. Does it happen at idle or driving down the road at any particular speed?

Lets start with that and see what happens. This is interesting.

Good luck!

My computer when turned on is making a big rattling sound. What is wrong with the computer and how can I fix it?


Sounds like something is loose and is hitting the fan blades.
Remove the cover and check the cables near the fan, tie the cables back and make sure they don't hit the fan blades.

Noisy Motor?


Hi, It is the evaporator fan motor/blade hitting something. Remove the rear panel inside the freezer section and see what the fan blade is hitting.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Fast clicking noise when compressor is on.


Hi, Can you see any frost builring up on the rear panel of the freezer. Most of the time the evaporator is hitting something, it's frost. If it it frost, you your automatic defrost cycle is not working properly. If there is no sign of frost, it is possible a little ice has formed around the fan or even a wire has fell near the fan blade. Best way is to remove the rear panel in all these possibilties and see what is happeningm
I hope this has helped you. If I can be of more assistance, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

LG Fridge making intermittent sound - like something hitting fan


GAIN ACCESS TO THE FAN IN THE FREEZER(EASIER SAID THAN DONE) AND INSPECT THE FAN BLADE AND FAN SHROUD. HAVE REFRIGERATOR TURNED OFF AND MANUALLY ADVANCE FAN BLADE. WATCH FOR SLIGHT CONTACT BETWEEN THE FAN BLADE AND OTHER OBJECTS NEAR IT-ELECTRICAL WIRING, FAN SHROUD, ICE CYCLE,ETC. ADJUST FAN BLADE OR OBJECT TO INCREASE CLEARANCE.
