Just in time for Halloween - The Noise from My Kitchen (and Laundry Room)

My previous post quoted from advice (given in 2008) by someone who calls himself Technician Brian. While his personal website has disappeared, his corporate website is still online. And, as it turns out, Technician Brian does not limit his advice to fancy ovens. Here's how a recent blog post began:

Late at night, when the house is dark and quiet, perhaps you have heard a whirring or a gurgling sound and you wondered to yourself if it might signal a problem with one of your household appliances. You are not alone, many of us have had this experience. Especially when your appliance is new, these noises can cause concern for the homeowner.

Technician Brian wrote this post on September 25, but it would have been more timely if he had written it on October 25. Halloween is approaching, and unless you're a Lutheran running around with a hammer and nails, your thoughts often turn to the spooky.

The teenagers had brought the beer up to the creepy abandoned summer home and were having a good time when they suddenly heard a gurgling noise coming from the kitchen. Petrified with fear, two of the teens decided that the best course of action was to go to the kitchen itself and make out.

Actually, considering how bad some of these movies are, perhaps it's better that Technician Brian didn't go that route. He probably likes the sensible horror film that's been making the rounds lately.

So what does Technician Brian talk about in his post? He talks about possible causes for the noises from two of our most common appliances - refrigerator/freezers and washer/dryers. Go here to read his advice.

Incidentally, Technician Brian's company, All Tech Appliance Service in the Portland, Oregon area, also has a presence on Google+ and Facebook.
