No Power after loud pop sound, is the power switch bad?


It is probably a bigger problem than the switch. If you are not experienced in working on electric appliances, you need to take it in to the repair shop.

Very occasionaly ( 3 times in the last 4 months ) when i decelerate at a corner and then accelerate I have a loud bang. It apears to be the gearbox. Other than that I have no problems with gear changes...


If this happens when you turn both ways, I would suspect an engine or transmission mount. When you accelerate the engine is being lifted somewhat off the frame and the bang would be when it comes back down. If you only hear it on say a right turn, then I would suspect a CV axle or possibly a ball joint on the right side. Hope this helps.

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where


The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

Loud bang


John,
What you are hearing is popping caused by thermal expansion inside the evaporator enclosure during its' defrost cycle.
Depending on your make and model, it'll go into defrost every 8 to 12 hours of compressor "run time". That is, the defrost timer "monitors" how long the compressor runs and after it accumulates the pre-set "run time", the timer then shuts the compressor off and initiates its' programmed defrost routine. This routine lasts for 20-30 minutes, or until the defrost thermostat opens.
The defrost routine sends 120 volts to a heating element in the evaporator compartment which gets red hot. This sudden temperature change (from below freezing to warm) causes the cabinet to expand slightly. That's when you hear the "Pop".

I hope this helps, John. Thanks for using FixYa, and don't forget to rate my answer.
