How to fix a squeaky dishwasher door

You may need to slide the dishwasher out slightly. On both sides at the floor level are the door springs, pulley, and cables. The cable is usually attached to the door hinge--then goes around the pulley wheel and goes back to the spring system. Most noise comes from the hinge pivot point or the pulley axle. You can spray all those parts with something like WD40 or if you don't like that smell try a silicone spray. Do both sides and work the door up and down.

My machine is very squeaky when I run it...where do i put the oil? it is a europro 605d

This is quite a question as the noise normally comes after drying of the oil points in the machine.
So first of all check for the oil marked points, the oil all the moving shafts at the BEARINGS/BUSHES and the joints of all motion.
You must listen to the squeaking, manually turn to confirm the spot and oil lightly.
Sometimes rust formation can result in the squealing to continue so use a de-greasing spray( WD40) to clean and improve the movement.

Our oscillating box fan is now making screechy noises. Currently I am putting it on high to get it going for a bit, then I can bring it back down to low. I figure it's just dropping some WD40 or cleaning...

hi, if you go to a car spares shop you should be able to buy a cheap accessory screwdriver kit that should have the correct adapter you need to undo the screws,

but as for using wd40 i wouldnt go that route as wd40 is an easing spray and not a lubrication, it would stop the noise for few days but then it would make it worse as the wd40 would dry up any grease or oil that is their, instead use some spray lube you can also buy this from a car spares shop or you could use something like machine oil or petrolium jelly to grease it up with this will then stop the noise and it should also work a bit better as it will be able to turn a bit easier

Very squeaky belt or pully, use to stop when gas pedal applied but now squeaks when gas pedal applied and most idle times. Been using wd40 but doesn't work as good now

1999 probably has a serpantine belt (multi grooved). I would guess that you may have a squeaky belt or more likley a bad bearing in on of the idler pulleys. Remove the belt and spin the idlers by hand. If one feels rough or makes noise replace it.

Squeaky noise from the motorafter running for

I would unplug the fan and clean off the motor shaft behind the fan and vaccum the motor housing and around the motor ends.

Once you've got as much dust and grime as possible removed, use some 3-in-1 oil and LIGHTLY oil each end of the motor shaft (behind the fan and next to the motor housing) and if possible, at the other end of the motor housing.

Make sure the fan is UNPLUGGED when you do this!!! Give the fan a slow spin by hand and hold upright to allow the oil to seep down the shaft into the bearings.

I usually do this once or twice a year on my portable fans and unless the bearing isn't completely worn out, it usually helps the fan spin more easily and keeps it running very well.

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

Screeching Noise

If you know that the fan is the culprit then it can be replaced. The motors are fairly cheap and easy to replace.
