Grinding Noises. A grinding noise typically means parts are rubbing again each other, which should never happen in a functioning heater. It could be a bent fan blade, or a part of the motor overheating, or it could even be debris caught in the system. Either way, it could cause further damage if the heater is still running; turn it off and call a repair technician immediately.
Humming Noises. A humming noise could be coming from a component that is working too hard and may be in danger of shutting down. This can include the fan motors or similar components. The sound can also come from a leak somewhere in the system, costing you warm air and creating the sound in the process.
Hissing Noises. A hissing or buzzing noise could also come from a leak somewhere in the system. It might also be caused by an electrical failure that could cause a shutdown of an electrical component.
