    Has anyone found a replacement bushing assembly?
    I have 2 of these Bionaire fans, and both have the same issue, on one the bushing must have froze, and ripped the rubber mount.
    This sounds like a manufacturing problem, or maybe a built in replacement and sales generator for Bionaire???

Unplug the unit from the wall for safety. Remove the two screws in the upper hand grip recess (upper back of the unit). The two screws must be completely removed (not just loose and setting in the holes). Once the two screws are out, the back half of the fan cover can be slid downward (some amount of force is needed to unsnap the two halves from each other but be careful since the parts are all plastic and can possibly snap). Once the back is unsnapped from the front, you can lift the back half away from the front half and the inside parts are now accessible. I have found on my fan that it is the top fan shaft / bushing that is causing the squeaking noise that so many have complained about. I have found that periodically lubricating the top shaft/bushing will make the fan sound like new again - for a while. Every 2 - 3 weeks I need to clean (wipe off old lube) and re-apply fresh lube).

Low buzzing noise, drum won't spin. If I push the drum by hand, it starts and runs fine. Capacitor or motor maybe?


The start winding may be open. The centrifugal switch contacts may need cleaning or replacement. The start capacitor may be bad. The start switch contacts may need to be cleaned or replaced.

How do i get to the main drain and pump on a kenmore elite front load washer


You will need a few towels. There is a cartridge like filter located on the front lo2er left corner of all current front load washers for cl3aning purposes. Remove or open the access panel plate and begin unscrewing the cartridge. After about 3 full turns it will begin to leak water. If you have a elevation base with a drawer place towels inside there to soak up water that leaks out. Once drained unscrew and pull straight out to clean the lower filter. There is another place to clean out just inside the drum on the front just under and behind the door seal

when you removed the screen from the inside you disconnected the wires from the 2 metal strips. now you need to remove the lower panel on the front. and reconnect them. you will need a T-20 torx and unplug the dryer to be safe. the wire will have 90 degree push on connectors and it does not have any polarity concerns. the two male connectors are real close to the top of the panel, maybe even slightly under the other panel. By the upper right of the silver fan duct.

Turned on dryer & tried to start but it gave a load thud noise & wouldn't go. Stop it then re-started a light came on stating clean filter. Clean filter & look inside that area to see if...


there is a sensor located beneath the lint filter, more the likely the dryer sheet residue is on it, gently brush it off, it has two screws. As far as the loud thud noise is/may be a problem with the drum/rollers/glides/belt/idler arm/motor Here is a website that will assist you, once the filter light goes off and the drum will not turn.Good Luck Tim

Have Kenmore 90 series elec. dryer...will start, but then cuts off and doesn't dry clothes. Trying to clean the lint out of it. We've taken all the screws out of the back, but can't get the back off!...


Hi-I just cleaned out mine. You take off the clamp that holds the exhaust duct from the bottom of the back of the dryer and you will be able to vacuum it out. Then you can remove the kickplate on the front of the dryer by lifting it hard and pull the top of it out. Then you can remove the lint trap holder once inside by unscrewing it, remove it and clean it out(take out the lint filter first). I vacuumed out the inside of the exposed bottom gently cause it was so full lint! Hope this helps!

GE Profile Harmony dryer sounds like a jet plane about to take off


KathleenA

I too have a GE Profile Harmony (Gas) Dryer that had started vibrating and making a loud noise. I removed the screws that held the filter and grill to the inside of the door frame and placed a mirror inside so I could see down inside the fan. I found that a softner sheet had somehow gotten around the filter screen and had lodged in the blades of the fan and had collected a fairly large amount of fine lint. The combination of the dryer sheet and the lint had created an out of balance condition that caused the dryer to vibrate and make noise (the forward cabin door has been closed and we're ready for takeoff!) I used a bent coat hanger as a hook and using the mirror to aim the hanger, I hooked the dryer sheet and pulled it out through the hole for the filter.

I hope I'm not too late to help you if indeed this is your same problem.
