During a hauling in operation the windlass started to making a strong noise and the gipsy stopped turning. I checked the clutch but it was OKAY. I have a little video where you can hear the noise. If you have an email address I will be glad to forward it to you. Thank you. Carlos

I would check the wire leads off the windless to switch and from switch to battery (typically ground) During times of extreme load thoes thick wires heat up expand and contract and might loose a little contact or corrosion. Thoes windlesses are pretty bullet proof and very rarely have i seen one break. So I don't think its the winch itself. I would start there. Good luck Aloha

My bernina aurora 440 sewing machine is making a high pitch humming noise when I turn it on


These machines do make a noise during start-up, but if it stops after the sewing machine has gone through the set-up, it is probably okay. However, if the noise continues, it should probably be taken for a check-up. Even so, if you are worried, a check-up may still be helpful.

Whining humming noise under hood


If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.

Have a 1998 Ford Mustang GT 106000 miles Had clutch replaced at 80000 miles Last night I was coming to a stop and it made a loud pop I thought it had turned off but was still running Seems to be running...


If you have driven 26,000 without a problem I doubt it's related to the clutch replacement, but I think we need more info here.
Does the car make the noise multiple times during one trip (on and off as you start and stop)?
Can you hear it when you are parked in your driveway? The best thing to do would be to get out of the car when you hear the noise, pop the hood, and try to locate which part of the engine it is coming from. Then we can move on from there.

I hauled a trailer about 40 miles and when I went to leave the clutch pedal went to the floor no resistance and wouldn't disengage clutch master cylinder has fluid throwout bearing has been making noi


It sounds like the throw out bearing separated. You will want to change the clutch and pressure plate when you replace the throw out bearing.

Hello, I have a lewmar Concept 1 windlass that worked fine for May/June, then on vacation in July it started cutting out. If I let it sit for a minute, it would start up again, only to quit again after...


Check the brushes and if they are short just replace them.
This will solve the problem.
There is thermal cut out which will protect the winding if its hot and will stop windlass and after cooling down it can run again.

1997 Probe Gt, 5 speed, 2.5 L V-6; 77,750 miles: replaced clutch master cylinder 11/15/2010. Clutch free play okay, pressure to push clutch pedal down- okay (these conditions apply to vehicle after...


THe problem can only really be with the clutch master cylinder. What you describe sounds like the master cylinder is not relieving pressure and this is building up in the salve cylinder, applying pressure to the pressure place and causing the clutch to slip. Can you make the problem go away even temporarily, if you open the bleed screw on the slave cylinder? You say that the free play is correct, but is the master cylinder returning fully to its released position?

Whirlpool washer makes loud noise now won't spin


HI. The issue here will be with the actual motor coupler. It is damaged at this time. The clutch and coupler should be replaced asap.The coupler is responsible for transferring the rotative torque to the actual transmission(direct drive assembly). The clutch is a regulator. Once these components are replaced, the unit will operate properly.

Now. The actual parts cost will be $50.00. This includes the clutch kit, and coupler, as well. Total repair cost, if service is requested by a tech, will be $150.00, roughly.

Powerwinch windlass not working.


Of course, first check the voltage at the connections to the windlass. Have someone operate the switch while you measure with a volt meter. If no voltage check breakers, or fuses. Heavy current devices like a windlass will often require fuses near where they connect to battery power.


A windlass requires a LOT of current to run. Not just voltage. Trace the wires from the battery connection all the way to the windlass. If possible, loosen any connections (ex; a lug with a nut or bolt) and clean with a wire brush then reconnect. Be sure to disconnect the battery while cleaning. Many times wires will corrode past the insulation. Especially if they were not tinned wire to begin with (tinned wire has a silver shine, regular copper has a copper color and typically turns dark or even black when corroded).

Since a windlass requires a lot of current, often there may be a relay near the windlass that might go bad. Listen to see if this is activating while someone operates the switch.

GE Model WHDSR209D2WW makes unbearable loud metal Screeching noise


ppr78, couple of things you want to check. The bottom panel on these GE's are pretty flimsy. I have run into a couple where during agitation the bottom of the motor housing would rub against the bottom panel making a terrible noise. You need to remove the front panel by pusing on the clips on the left and right side just under the top. The front panel will pull out. During agitation, take your foot and push down on the bottom panel and see if the screech goes away. I have also found the suspension rod support sockets at the top dry out and make a screeching noise. You also want to check your belt and pully and see if the noise is from there. Check these things first...Catriver..post back.
