Question about Whirlpool ACQ158XP Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fan does not work.

I have a Whirlpool ACQ158XP0. This morning I turned it on and the fan started very slowly and there was a wierd humming noise that didn't go away until the fan got up to speed. Also when I cycled through the fan speeds, it doesn't blow like it did yesterday. So I turned the unit off and started it again in turbo and it made the same noise and started slowly like before but then the noise came back the fan slowed down and stopped. I believe the compressor is fine because I could here it run and the copper lines were cold. Thanks

I'm working on one right now and I believe it's the capacitor. It's hard to find this capacitor. So far I've tryed 3 HVAC suppliers and none have this rare capacitor. First UNPLUG THE UNIT. Take the phillips screws out of each side in the front. Then take the 3 screws out of the face of the control. There are 3 white common wires and a dark brown compressor wire and a light brown fan wire. Take the 1/4 inch screw out and unplug the wires and find another one.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

I have a whirlpool quiet miser, ACE082XSO that is cooling fine, but makes quite a lot of tinnie rattling noise when I listen to it run on the outside of our bedroom. is there a fix for this noise problem...


Normally a sound like this is vibration or the fan making contact with the casing. If you pick up on the unit a press on it in different places and the sound goes away it i vibration. If its the fan there will be evidence on the edges of the fan blade. You can also turn off the power and slowly turn the fan and see if it hits. Just remember sometimes just moving the unit around will make a nois start or stop. good luck

2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.


Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.

My scooter makes wierd humming noises


This sounds like (passing) resonance -- a natural phenomenon. You might be able to eliminate it by just tightening some bolts in the exhaust system -- or, it may never go away, or it may stop of its own accord.

Probably, you are hearing the motor turning. The belt likely broke.

Humming noise on HP Pavilion dv9000


I have a dv6000 and its makes a insect tlike noise. i returned it and  got another one but that one also made the same noise. so i contacted hp and they told me that the sound is coming from the USB ports, i thought wierd but here is the solution to your problem. go to computer managment (start>right click my computer> manage), click on device manager, select the universal serial bus contollers ( there should be a few roots files that open up), right click a usb root hub and select properties, click the power managment tab, and uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". do this for every USB root hub that you have, and the problem should go away. FYI these instructions are for windows XP.
