Also, since this happens SO often it seems, it should be part of the maintenance manual to inspect it once a year. Essential preventive maintenance to save you $$$ down the road!

Any idea what they do on the Speedster?

Steve, thanks for reposting in YouTube format. I tried playing the original file on my Android Cell Phone which has about five different apps capable of playing videos in a variety of formats.None of them could handle it.

Whatever the noise is it is resonating inside the machine so pushing on the side covers might quiet it down some. Time to open it up & take a look. It should be pretty obvious where that noise is coming from with the covers off.
