Oh dear, the General is making funny noises!?!

>When the fact plate was stuck, someone had posted about hoping I didn't damage the bearings. Please say the noise I'm hearing is not something major! but I bet it is.

It sounds like something rubbing in the motor and when I shut it off it sounds like yeeeeeoooowwwww slow and low. It's major, isn't it. I knew I shouldn't have tried each of everything suggested with that face plate!!!! : (

Oh, and I tried calling someone to listen to it on the phone, I had a phone in the shop right next to the General. Well, one day I was digging along the house to plant flowers, there's this junk bush right under the grey phone line box, the "root" was really hard so I jumped on the shovel, I grabbed the "root" and pulled, expecting to pull that bush up and it was a big round taped wire, severed just as clean as could be. Yep, the shop phone line.
