Grinding sound when running drill

it sounds like the gears aren't meshed. Switch the speed selector between high and low speed and maybe give the chuck a wiggle when you do it.

FAC084N7A1 fan motor makes loud grinding sound

It's obvious to me that your motor 'quit' turning because of a lack of lubrication.

You have one 'slight' chance here - and that depends on whether or not you are able to take a drill and 'drill' a small hole on top of the bearing case (which encases the bearing).

On most motors you can do this quite easily. Just look on the end of the motor (where the shaft comes out of the motor) and you should see the bearing encasement (on some motors this is internal and you won't be able to do this). - but in any case if you can - 'just drill a small hole at the top of the encasement and then take a oil bottle, one of those plastic ones with the long slender tube - and oil the motor. I've done this many times in the past and more times than not your fan motor will run normally for quite some time.

Note: you must understand though - that the damage already done to the motor 'might' cause this manuver to be un-sucessful, i.e. the motor may run and not make noise but will heat up and go off - or it may still make the grinding noise and also heat up and go off.

But, you do have a chance this way.

If this doesn't work - the only thing to do is to replace the motor.

Note: I've never took one of these motors apart and tried to oil the bearings as you suggested - mainly because the chance of success - versus the "time and trouble" to do so is very slim.

good luck!

Not cooling refrig or freezer - all i did was pull the fridge away from the wall to paint and it stopped working - lights come on - i hear it grinding every so often but not cooling - only 5 years old

it cycles on its overload protector, that is why you hear grinding sound so often,check the motor or compressor if it is too hot, if it is,means your compressor is tripping intermittently,it might be a weak protector,if not it is the motor compressor,on the other hand where is the source of the grinding sound sir? if it is coming from the bottom or at the back it is from the motor, if the grinding sound is coming from inside, the evaporator fan is partially touching those melted ice or something, Those problem should be done or service by a qualified technician sir, check for the nearest service center in your area

Hilti te5 motor turning but not driving chuck

While the drill is running grab the chuck and turn it by hand. If you here a grinding noise that tells you the rotor gear is stripped.

Dryer doesn't want to run- makes grinding noise

its sounds like a worn bearing problem.with the m/c switch off ,turn drum by hand and see if it is hard to do so.if you get a gritty feeling in your hands or hear a grinding noise,then that is probably the bearing.
