Sounds like a motor problem. It could be that the brushes are worn in the motor. They should be under 2 plastic screw caps attached to springs. They should be a square carbon at the end of the spring about half inch long.

Hello

Sounds like the compressor is shuting down on high heat.There could be a couple reasons for this.
1 Check that proper voltage is being supplied to compressor.
2 Freon level may be low.This would be a service call.
3 Bad or intermitent connection at thermostat.
4 Main contacts to compressor sticking,usually burnt or pitted.

First make sure your gas is on. If that's not it make sure the pilot tube itself is cleaned out try tapping on the pilot head to remove any build up. The furnace on a call for heat will first start the combustion blower then start the ignition procedure, that first starts the spark igniter or glow plug then timed through the circuit board a short 3 second burst of gas after the 3 second burst if the flame sensor does not sense the flame a short purge cycle runs another 3 second burst of gas and then try's for ignition again. Knowing this the only thing it could be is a gas related problem either no gas or no gas making it to the pilot head or the gas valve itself is not opening so check the gas and the pilot tube if there fine then you're more than likely looking at a new gas valve. Sometimes tapping on the gas valve will free a stuck valve.

Hope this helps and please remember to grade me.......thanks again

1999 honda civic 1.6L very intermittent no start/stall no codes happened twice in 2 months when cold stalls very intermit when warm in gear


IT SOUNDS LIKE A FUEL PUMP OR A IGNITION PROBLEM A INDICATION OF A IGNITION PROBLEM IS THE TACHOMETER SMETIMES WILL START TO BOUNCE UP AND DOWN. CHECK FOR SPARK WHEN IT DIES IF THERE IS NO SPARK THAN IT IS A IGNITION PROBLEM. TO CHECK THE FUEL PUMP TURN THE KEY OFF THEN TURN FORWARDTO THE ACC POSIION AND LISTEN FOR THE FUEL PUMP TO HUMM IT WILL ONY HUMM FOR 5-10 SECONDS EACH TIME TOU DO THIS. THE REASON IT WORKS INTERMITANTLY IS BECAUSE THEY ARE BOTH ELECTRONIC PARTS AND WHEN THEY WARM UP THEY FRITZ OUT LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AND GOOD LUCK

Hitachi EC12 Compressor- weird hum


The burst of air you hear as the compressor shuts off is the cylinder unloading so it will not have to restart against a high pressure load. If the unloader is electrical it would explain the hum that you hear. This could be a normal function.

Refrigerator making a whinning noise.


sutty, you have a 2 speed DC evaporator motor in this model. There should be at least 60 seconds between any fan speed changes. On the back side of the refrigerator you have a main board. Unplug J2 connector on the board. Check for 13VDC between pins j2-3 and j2-8, then check for 8 to 13VDC between j2-3 and j2-4. If the voltage is correct I would suspect the evaporator motor. If the voltage is incorrect, then the problem is in the main board. Pins read from left to right 1 through 8. Catriver.
