If it's original or just old instead of old-as-dirt it may need an overhaul.

How do I stop the squeaking noise when pedaling the bike or using the elliptical option? I've tried lubrication. Only getting worse.


Have you lubricated all moving parts. Wheel bearings Chain and sprockets? Are there fenders if so are they a little loose?. Anything that is loose will vibrate and make a noise. Even dry pedals will make a noise. Crank also.Just a thought.

How do I fix my F150 Ford from squeaking on the front driver side.


It's your universal joints. Your universal joints have become warn and what's happening is as you accelerate its moving and the loose universal joints are moving which is causing the noise. It occurs at low speeds because of a slight wobble as speed increases the wobble goes away and so does the noise. It's best to change the font and back at the same time you can find them at your local part store starting at $19.99 each. As for your front end lubricate it real good. Hope this was helpful.

I have a squeaking noise coming from the rear of my 06 range rover hse what could it be


Rear suspension bushings will squeak, Dealers will want to replace them all, Give them a good soaking with a rubber lubricant and they will stop making noise, I use Ruglyde, it is a rubber lubricant for mounting tires and works very well for this squeak

Severe squeaking noise coming from the undercarraige....shocks? bushings?


Both the shocks and bushings can cause the squeaking noise. It is very common in those vehicles, and the best bet for figuring out which one is this: put some brake fluid in a squirt bottle, and put a small amount(don't get overzealous with it, as it will remove paint) on all the rubber bushings, and drive it around a little to get it worked into the joints. Brake fluid is designed to work as a lubricant in brakes without degrading the rubber parts, so it is excellent in lubricating the rubber suspension parts. If your squeaking remains, then it is probably the shock. This diagnosis, of course depends on if the squeak is that really obnoxious rubber squeak noise that comes when you push down on the front end and make the suspension travel. If the squeak is the high-pitched one that is constant when driving, and doesn't change except with speed, then it is your brakes telling you that they need new pads.

Hampton bay fan makes squeeking noise


If the fan is fairly new, remove it and return it to Home Depot. It is almost certainly something that has fallen down into the motor and is rubbing loudly enough to make a squeak as the fan runs faster.

The fan itself has sealed lubrication and you don't have to lubricate it.

Squeaking


the squeak is coming from the drum unit. If you take out the drum and rotate it by hand it will most likely give you the same noise. you may be able to stop it by pouring some toner on it, but in reality it is more annoying than a problem.
there is a blade that scrapes off excess toner from the drum, it is slightly dry and causes the squeaking, technicians usually use a special powder that looks like baby powder to "lubricate" the blade, and stop the noise.
