Squeeky fan belt noise after driving a little


It sounds as if the belt is dry. Belts dry out after a certain amount of time and then start to make chirping noises. If the belt is not badly cracked, you can try using a belt lubricant spray. These sprays usually only last for a short period of time, though.

How to troubleshoot a noisy treadmill


First verify if your are getting the noise with a user physically on the machine, without anyone on, or both.



Creaking or squeaking while running on the machine usually indicates an issue in your incline motor, deck frame, springs, and or pivot points.



A loud grumbling noise getting louder and louder while elevating speed, usually means you have a bad bearing.



Any knocking noise coming from a treadmill indicates bad bearings in your front roller, rear roller, or drive motor.

Isolate the bearings in the front and rear rollers from the drive motor bearings.



To test: Unplug the machine, remove the main shroud, remove drive belt from drive motor and front roller pulley.



After doing so, move the treadmill belt by itself by pushing it backward or forward with just your hands and listen for any noise, if you get any noise it is most likely coming from either the front or rear roller. To isolate the noise from the two rollers you can loosen the belt and turn each roller individually.



If no noise with the first test, go ahead and start the machine and run it at a low speed. You want to listen for noise, if you get knocking or grumbling while drive motor is running with no drive belt attached then the issue is in your drive motor.



A lot of times simple maintenance will save your treadmill from noise, you want to make sure and lubricate your treadmills pivot points. Incline motor bolt, shaft, deck screws, and or any pivot points on the bottom of your machine. Metal on metal pivot points are usually the culprit in most cases.



Pivot points are just areas of high friction where there may be a bolt, washer, and nut attached to the base of your frame or any hinges on your folding type treadmills. Metal on metal needs to be lubricated to minimize wear and tear of those areas.



Synthetic grease works best or any spray on lubrication works fine if you do not want to remove any bolts or hardware.

Complete manual, squeeky noise then shuts down


Hi
Hi Harold
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like the drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if you have to.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear they will make a thumping type of noise.
If your drum rollers have too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them and are only squeeling then they probably only need lubrication.
Remove the rollers and clean the shafts that the roller rolls on, remove any hair,dust,etc from roller and shaft.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vaseline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.

Technics SL B202 doesn't maintain consistent speed. I have cleaned the unit's surfaces where belt comes into contact and it improved. i used a little lubricating spray on the speed control pot as...


From your description it sounds like the motor is the issue, it probably needs to be taken apart and cleaned and re-lubricated with phono oil if it still available. It is possible that time will improve the performance, but you probably should replace the turntable belt especially when it has been sitting for a long time without use.

Squeeky noise coming from aprilaire 760 when running. Was told bearings were bad but see no parts available for bearings. Any suggestions as to the problem


Hello, usually when you hear a squeeky sound coming from humidifier it is the bearings on the motor, the only option is to replace the motor for the humidifier. I will post a link to a aprilaire store that carries motors for humidifiers. www.aprilairehumidifierparts.com

I have a Maytag washer that the agitator is not working , I makes a squealing noise, How do I repair this? Thanks


Your problem may be a seized water pump with the motor turning the drive belt on a water pump pulley that is not turning (belt squealing). Or the noise could be originating from a water pump that has a noisy/bad bearing. If the pump pulley is turning and making the noise, you may be able to lubricate the pump shaft with some quality shaft lubicant (no guarantee that the noise will cease)! If other problem, contact an appliance service company.

Drum does not move


dryer...there is no way to lubricate anything...all bearings are sealed. Get in there and look around. Turn off the gas and remove the line of you can't get access... and disconnect the power. Remove the back. Chances are you'll find that the motor, drum or belt is somehow jammed. Make sure any fan is turning freely with the belt off. It is possible that the timer is bad. This would keep the motor from receiving power. To test...remove the motor belt and turn the unit on.
