Ok Charles; Sorry for the delay replying. I had some trouble getting the upload to work.

Ok what I have done is upload the service manual for your unit. It has all the diagnostic proceedures and is clearly illustrated.

With a bit of reading through the mechanical sections you should be able to determin what is causing the noise and then repair it.
You can get it by clicking here.

To download this file:

On the first page scroll down to the bottom and select "FREE"

On the next page enter the letters in the box and select "download"

Save the file to your hard drive and open it with a .pdf reader. I recommend FoxIt reader. ( Its smaller than adobe and no spyware.
If there is something in the manual that you do not understand just post here, and I will walk you through the proceedure.
