My S7580 vacuum cleaner is very noisy


Hey, this is Jeremy with Crucial Vacuum,

To remedy a noisy vacuum cleaner there are typically four main areas to check to restore proper functionality. By following the steps below it should be back to normal in no time!

1. Dirty Filters- If your vacuum has suddenly become very loud, check the filter, as it may be dirty. When the filters on a vacuum become excessively dirty, the vacuum may start running louder because it is working hard to create suction. If your filters are dirty, your vacuum is likely not suctioning appropriately, either. To fix this problem, simply remove the filters in your vacuum, rid them of the dust and debris and rinse them out with warm water.

2. Clog- Clogs are often the reason as to why your vacuum cleaner is being extra noisy. While vacuuming, something may get sucked up such as a button or a small toy, for example. Additionally, the clog may be making the vacuum work harder. Check all tubes and hoses in the vacuum to make sure there are no obstructions.

3. Broken Brush Bearing- When a brush bearing breaks, the vacuum cleaner gets loud and starts to vibrate. To remedy the problem, remove the brush and replace it

4. Broken Fan- The fan in the motor of your vacuum may be broken, causing the vacuum to run louder than normal. When dirt runs through the motor of the vacuum, it can collect on the fan, causing it to break. If the fan in your vacuum motor is broken, it will need to be replaced. This is a slightly more tricky process and may require you to bring in your vacuum to a repair shop to have the part replaced.

How to fix a noisy evaporator fan in a frost free refrigerator


The ice usually makes a fan noisy by filling the cavity it needs to move the blades in. check if this is the case, if there is no obstruction and the fan motor itself is noisy it needs to be replaced or serviced, servicing parts is trickier to find than the little motor it self.
To clear the ice just let the fridge stand for a few hours and to help the process speed up you can spray the evaporator with luke warm water.

Noisy fan stops when I open my freezer


Some refrigerators control the freezer fan by turning it off when the door is open to minimize cold air loss. This is likely normal for your model (check wiring diagram to ascertain this.) The freezer fan is the noisiest component on a refrigerator so the noise might be typical of your model. If it is excessively noisy (it's louder now than it used to be) then it will probably be one of the following: 1) bad fan motor bearings and the motor should be replaced, 2) loose or broken fan blade and should be replaced, or 3) frost/ice buildup on the evaporator (cooling) coil that the fan blade hits and the cause of the frost /ice should be corrected (likely a defrost problem.)

Fan is too loud


Every computer comes built with a processor cooling fan system.
The fan's main function is to keep the processor from overheating.
After long periods of use, processor fans can start to malfunction.
If your eMachines computer's fan is excessively noisy, it will need some maintenance.
If you don't deal with a noisy fan promptly, your computer's processor could overheat and cause significant damage to your motherboard as a result.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.
Power down the computer.
Disconnect all cables and peripheral devices from the computer's back panel.
Rotate the computer so the back panel is facing you. Lay the computer on its left side.
Remove the Phillips thumb screws that fasten the right side access panel to the computer's frame.
Remove the side access panel from the computer to reveal the motherboard and all internal components.
Locate the cooling fan assembly near the center of the motherboard.
Remove all Phillips screws fastening the fan to the motherboard.
Disconnect the fan's power cable from the motherboard.
Then lift the fan out of the computer.
This will reveal the processor chip.
Place the fan on a flat work surface with the label sticker facing upward.
Use a thin, flat-head screwdriver to peel away the label sticker from the fan.
This will reveal the access hole to the fan motor's bearings.
Apply one to two drops of lightweight mechanical oil into the fan motor's bearings.
Replace the fan's label sticker.
Use a can of compressed air to spray the dust and debris from inside the fan blades.
Place the fan back into the motherboard on top of the processor chip.
Replace the retention screws and reconnect the fan's power cable to the motherboard.
Replace the side access panel and its two retention thumb screws.
Place the computer tower vertically, and then reconnect all cables and devices to the computer.

I can hear the fuel pump cut on and then cut off. and off but it seems very noisy. Is that an indication that it is bad? The engine tries to start


If fuel pump is whining excessively loud then yes it is a definite sign it is going out. Don't have enough information to advise you whether or not this will fix your current condition but a noisy fuel pump is a failing fuel pump.

Noisy evaporator fan


A noisy fan is caused by several things. The fan can have the blade touching something behind the shroud (the back wall in front of the fan). It could be the bearings on the fan are no good - try oiling with Triflow oil. The fan blade could be out of balance. Try cleaning any dirt or grime off the blade. Fans are cheap (relatively). Tried a new one?
Some fans are just noisy. Try thin rubber between the fan and the screws that mount it (bicycle tire patches work good for this).

Well when i turn on a/c condensingcome on and


is your indoor fan motor noisy? Right after it shuts off feel if it is extremely warm (carefull, may burn you if you leave your hand on too long). If it excessively hot, the motor is tripping on overloads located in the motor itself, probably the bearings are dragging. Check to see if it spins freely when spun by hand. If not replace motor. Make sure power is off while putting your hands in or around the fan
