Sqeak noise usually indicates that the rollers need replacing or maintainace required --most likely the fuser assembly kit needs replacing (includes rollers & fuser)

what is the printer model ?

Is the paper size set on the computer for the size of paper you are printing to?
Usually if you have to give a 'thumbs up' to the printer is because it is trying to print on an different size paper.

When the dryer gets hot, the tumbler begins to make a continous squeaking noise as if there is metal to metal; not a grinding noise. If you allow it to cool down and restart, it doesn't start until it...


Well ya never mention in your question what brand you have but a GE or Hotpoint dryer has a small plastic insert that wears thin over time. It begins to do a squeak squeak squeak type of noise.And that noise is intermittent, on a Frigidaire model the noise would start out low and gradually get worse. The bearing sometimes gets so bad it gets chopped off and the tub falls into the heating element.

My car makes a humming noise when excellerating and is especcially noisey when turning steering wheel to the left. there is also a continous squeak. my husband put WD40 on the bolt on power steering box...


If WD-40 got on belt, and squeak went away for a while, it may just need a new belt. The humming noise sounds like a worn wheel bearing that should be checked and replaced if needed. If squeak goes away when you push slightly on brake pedal, it may be rotor on same side as wheel bearing making the noise due to slight shifting of rotor because of worn bearing.You can try swapping tires on front from one side to other to confirm it isn't tire problem as well. If noise shifts to other side, then it's a tire.

Troubleshootinggtabtop.gif
    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

    2. Press ITEM until Print Menu Map is selected.

Squeaking noise when printing


Probably, but you?re going to have to try to isolate the problem a little better. Typically this would involve removing side panels and such; however, you may just have a faulty consumable like a toner cartridge, fuser or more likely the transfer kit. I typically try to isolate the sounds location then try replacing some of the consumables in that area one by one. In your case if you can?t isolate the location I would start with the transfer kit since that has a greater chance of making noise. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate the posting when we?re done.
