This AC makes a severe Churning noise when the compressor runs. It now makes a strange noise when your start the unit and then 'hums'. It seems to have problems with the compressor 'kicking...

lots of compressors make strange noises and run for years. I hate to suggest installing a hard start kit simply because I always wonder what we did before they came out with a hard start and machines lasted longer BUT, check amps on start up, amps while running, watch amps for a bit while it's running, install hard start kit. just like all mechanical equipment, it may last 5 weeks, it may last 5 years. Best Wishes!!

LG Gas dryer has started to make weird screechy(?) noise - almost like the drum is rubbing against something. It's a couple years old - is this a maintenance thing or will I need to replace?

You will need to have the unit checked out by a qualified LG tech to diagnose your problem. Sounds like one of the roller guides may need to be replaced.
Good luck

When i start the computer it sounds very strange and the computer are very slow

it's hard to figure out the source of that noise by the "strange" word.
if it is like a metallic sound it could be you hard drive failing.. how old is it.. I had to replace mine after 5 years of normal-heavy usage. the slugging or your computer could also be due to the hard drive or it could be lack of maintenance (defragmentation, malware, viruses)

1. if the hd is old. save all your data as soon as possible as your description could mean an inminent hard drive failure in the way.
2. replaced as need.

if hd fairly new (1-2 years with normal usage) do this:
1. save your data in backups
2. download, install, update and run deep scans with at least 5 malware programs.
3. update your antivirus and run a full scan
4. defrag hd.
5. it may be convinient to do check your disk for errors

if the sound is a loud zumming.. undust the inside of your case and clear all vents from dust and gunk, (watch for electromagnetic discharge that could damage your computer if you are going to do it your self.
if the zumming continue, look for source as it may be a failing fan and replace as soon as possible.. fan's keep proper temperature on hardware components and will make them last.

post back with your findings if needed.

Could be the shield rubbing on the tire or could be a loose brake caliper. Get the brake assembly checked.

Is there any fault code displayed on the display, such as F6?

I would first suggest checking the door switches and mounts.

If they are good, I would suspect the control board. We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.


At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
