Take what covers off you can to see if you can look at the fan wheel. With the power disconnected, make sure that the wheel spins freely. Sometimes stuff gets in there and blocks the wheel. Hope that helps. From there it goes to checking controls and other functions of the unit that may require Whirlpool service.

I would have to say it might have a bad fan but you could try oil on the fan motor bearings it may free it up

Laptop make buzzing noise low to high it goes. click on speaker icon it stops for a min but come back again and keep buzzing left side bottom corner .


Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

This on and off buzzing noise in the system indicates that the fan is not operating as designed and needs to be replaced as soon as possible. You may refer to Lenovo's consumer support site for replacement/repair options:

Lenovo Consumer Support

Please understand that this kind of work requires a certified Lenovo technician in order for it to be completed.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dryer has started to make a loud sqealing when it starts and gets up to speed, the kind of sound a loose fan belt makes on a car, and now just makes a buzzing sound when the button is pushed but dosen't...


If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

GE AGL05 Air Conditioner Problem


Try the fan only setting. If it still buzzes, that would mean a fan issue. An object obstructing the fan, or a bad fan motor. If it runs on fan only, but buzzes on a cooling setting, that would indicate a compressor issue.

Buzzing noise


The buzzing you are experiencing is most likely the electric valve solenoid coil.
That is the valve that lets gas in when the stove is turned on.
Another source of buzzing/humming can be a mechanical clock, if hter is one.
If it is digital, then it woul not make noise.

Works - but the sound has changed


Possibly, the "fault" was the buzzing in the first place! Buzzing is usually a cabinet vibration caused by magnetic fields from the "gubbins". If the buzzing should occur again, try pushing/ pulling/ poking the cabinet while the oven is running, you may find a position that causes the buzz to stop.
Another possibility is you previously had something else placed in close proximity to the oven.
If a rattling cabinet is the problem, either try to reposition something, or just ignore it!

Fan or capacitor?


I would say the motor is bad but to be sure test the voltage to the motor with a multimeter, you can also phisically spin the motor and if that makes it work a little not as fast and blow enough air then you know its the motor this works if you dont have a multimeter.

WHEN EQUALIZER IS ON LOW GRADE BUZZING/HISSING HEARD.


Have you isolated the problem to the equalizer only? By that, I mean remove it from the signal chain and bypass it completely. That's the first thing.Does the system make noise without it in? If dead quiet when removed then you go to step two.
If the noise returns when the EQ is reconnected, you should eliminate crappy or broken cables, connectors etc. Replace with a known good working set. Still there? Buzzing infers either a ground issue or some kind of power supply problem, only if the previous stuff is eliminated. Do this first, then ask again.
