Hey there cyclonesid, capacitors look like little batteries, and have a shiny flat top with perforation lines on it. If the capacitor is going or gone, this flat top begins to peak and sometimes show points of corrosion. jpe is associated with thermal fuses which are used to protect devices from excessive ambient temperatures. These are not expensive and relatively easy to replace (if required) by a professional. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

    Hey there cyclonesid, that is where I would guess you problem is located. The deal is however that these things are there to protect your machine. If they go , it is either a sign of a bad fuse or capacitor, but also likely a sign of a deeper problem which may be dying motor. I suggest you get the capacitor replaced and the thermal fuse (black vibrating thing) checked, and ask technician to check other elements in immediate area. Good Luck!

Check the fan wheel to see if something got "sucked" in.Ex.paper or insulation. If wheel is clear but looks bent do NOT bend it back, it should be replaced to spin TRUE

I have dell 3300mp,when I turn the power on it makes a very loud noise. It does not make the sound in standby or cool down. It does work and display a signal okay, but it is very loud. Sound like a fan?,...

The main fan that cools the lamp is mostly high speed when the unit is running. when it shuts down it slows the fan down, until it stops in standby. So the noise is only really loud when it is showing a picture.

try setting the fan to eco mode (slower running) and see if the noise is acceptable. If it is still too loud then you will have to replace it. Have a look at the fan and see if any of the plastic blades are missing.

I have a goodman air conditioner and the fan stopped I felt heat from the top and it was loud what could be wrong. the builder installed it about 2.5 yaears ago.

You are probably hearing the compressor run, thats what is loud.
The compressor should cycle on and off to protect itself. You are
probably looking at replacing the fan motor.

3 year-old Goodman compressor/heat pump terribly loud @ start

Without being there to see it and have only your description in front of me, it sounds like the fan blade could be out of balance.......but it sounds more like a loose fan blade hub. Most Goodman units offer a minimum 5 year parts warranty. The Labor warranty is questionable, but the installing contractor or the Goodman Distributor should be able to give you that information. Of course this would cover manufacturer problems and not physical damage. As far as a history of this problem with Goodman..........I've seen it with every brand. If there is a problem getting it under warranty, you might be able to purchase the blade yourself. Before replacing the fan blade, I recommend disconnecting the motor wires from the contactor, tape off the ends and remember exactly where they were attached.....then start the unit to see if the noise is still evident, if so, it's probably your compressor. I recommend a certified repairman....not the one that quoted you $800.00. If you hear only the compressor start up and not the loud noise you are discribing, then try replacing the blade first.

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you. :-)

Defect power ic board. Take the thing back to the shop for exchange or refund. No receipt or out of warranty? Chalk it up as a loss and purchase a new one.

Noisey compressor

Does it make the noise all of the time or just periodically? Does the outdoor fan run when it is making the noise. If the fan isn't running and the compressor is noisy at that time likely it is in defrost mode which is normal.

LG DVD recorder (super)

Mine did to, it was the fan at the back of the recorder. I fixed it by inserting a cardboard spacer between the fan & the case.
