Sytem Humming. :S

Naturally the humming sound comes from the in built fans however i have an xbox 360 elite with wireless and the extra fan attachment on the back and form about a week ago every time i have turned my Xbox on a very strange hummming noise is made (not just the fan)

It souds very much like a grinding noise. :S
I turned it off and back on and then it all sounds and runs well however the last few times i turn it off and back on it does it more then just once....

sp any ideas on what the hell is going on?

I have wireless internet how do i get connect to the xbox 360

Depends if you have an Xbox Elite or an older Xbox 360?
If you have an Xbox Elite then there will be an in- built wireless, For older xbox 360's you will have to go and buy an Xbox wireless adapter.
If you go to settings, network settings, and select connect to xbox live via wireless then you will be prompted to input your security details for your Wireless and you should then be connected via wireless to xbox live.

Did the 360 elites that were made in 2110 was the red ring fixed

yes they have made improvements with better fans and a new heatsink to help prevent this from happening. But thats not say it will never happen. The new xbox 360 slims actually have the cpu/gpu that are built into one and that is suppose to fix the problem permanently.

Whirlpool built-in double oven model# RBD305PDB12

the humming sound is coming from the "squirrel cage" fan in the back of the unit, there may be some resonance vibration from the fan this issue should be addressed by a qualified service tech, the whole wall oven needs to be pulled out, i would have him check the fan.

Fan does not turn on

That fan input could be malfunctioned. Look around to fix busted Xbox motherboards and replace the fan input/output. Also, see if your fans are hitting something.

For your fans to immediately stop, tells me it is the input/output

Air Handler Blower Unit Humming

More then likely it's the transformer. It may be getting weak. I've seen them hum/vibrate almost new and last for years. It's more an annoyance than anything.

Fan problems

it looks like by Fitting this Homebrew Fan and switching the power on that you have potentially shorted the systems Motherboard. this will render it unworkable as is in your case. unfortunately for you now, because you have modified the Xbox 360s hardware, your warranty with microsoft is Voided meaning you will have to purchase a new Xbox.

Instead of resorting to fitting Extra pieces of hardware Yourself,i suggest follow these steps :

1) do not put Xbox 360s in small confined spaces such as TV Cabinets and cupboards, this decreases the Cooling capabilities of the Xbox System Dramatically which will eventually lead to an Over heat and potentially damaged CPU and/or GPU (RRoD). Make sure the Xbox console has a lot of empty space around it, Free from other electrical appliances which will give it the fresh cool air it requires to keep the core temperatures down.

2) buy a very small desk fan and have it blowing a very slight breeze onto the back of the Xbox Console. do not have the fan turned up too high or Pointing Directly into the back of the console, as this can sometimes wear down the Bearings on the fans which will eventually cause them to break.

3) the final solution would be to Look into purchasing a 3rd Party Fan Attachment, these fans don't alter the hardware within the system, meaning they are still within warranty. and generally provide cooler running temperatures for your console. one example of an attachment would be the Nyko Intercooler (google it).

Hopefully this solves your problem. sorry to hear that you may need a new console !

Tv makes humming noise when on. how can I eliminate or reduce the nose?

Some of the larger TV's are DISH ready, meaning that they have the tuner inside for SAT TV. The SAT tuners often have an internal fan that makes a humming noise. If it sounds like something other than that, you might have a bad component in your sound circuit that allows 60 HZ hum through the speakers.

If it is a rear projection LCG TV it has a fan in it to cool the bulb. You will hear the fan if you listen closely. It usually cannot be heard over the volume.

The fluorescent bulb and electronics inside make humming sound naturally. Kinda like when you turn on a lamp, and some lamps make a low humming sound.
