Two main possibilities:
1.) If the refrigerator has an ice maker but you are not making ice, the solenoid valve will open every hour or so to allow water to fill the ice maker. That valve wears out and makes more noise as it ages. There is a metal rod/bar that can be lifted up to stop the ice maker from cycling.
-or-
The compressor and the associated starter cap may be failing and it can make odd noises when it starts back up after the defrost cycle. Time for a professional to take a look.

We Have a GE Model JVM 3670BF001 Spacemaker that started making a buzzing noise periodically when turned on. After a few times of buzzing it quit heating.


You probably had a bad connection now with pop probably separated. You may also have a bad thermal over heat device. one brand is Thermodisk. But you need to know what you are doing. Might be time to replace.

Issues with turn signal in my 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. Hazard lights and right/left turn signal emit a very loud buzzing, then gets stuck. It does not work most of the time, or when it does, it buzzes...


Sounds like you have a bad multi-function switch or signal switch they are the same thing.This will fix the cruise control but,your other problem is your hazard warning switch replace it to.This will fix both of your problems.P.S you can get both of these from www.rockauto.com for less than $60.00.

THERE IS A BUZZING SOUND THAT COMES AND GOES


the noise is most probably compressor tubing vibrating while the unit is running. when you press against the doors your changing the position of the tubing causing it to quiet down. what you can do to fix it is pull refrig from wall remove unit cover on the bottom and move the tubing around alittle bit then put it back together and see what happens. in some cases unless it makes the noise while your working on it, it may take 2 or 3 attempts to finally get it to stop. additionally if you have copper tubing for the icemaker water line be sure it is isolated as well to help quiet it down.
DO BE CAREFUL when moving the tubing not to cause it to leak refrigerant by bending or moving too much. the noise is an annoyance and not a sign the refrig is about to break down. Thanks Peyton

My Wii makes an annoying buzzing sound


I think thats normal. If your really annoyed about it, Play some music that cancels out the noise. I'm sure the in-game music your playing should go over the buzzing noise.

Buzzing Noise and TV picture is yellow


Andy, I'm thinking the buzz is from the deflection coil (yoke) on the neck of the tube or the power supply. Probably not the high voltage as you can hear the "buzz". If it's really that annoying, you can take a length of rubber tubing (no metal) and listen to the buzz coming from the chassis kind of like a stethoscope. STAY AWAY FROM THE HIGH VOLTAGE, please. The yellow picture sounds like a blue chroma failure. A tube can be rejuvinated if need be but that's a job for a pro. Hope this helps.
