It sounds like a broken mechanic part problem. You need to bring it to an authorized repair shop.

    Unfortunately It is impossible to estimate the repair cost without open it and take a close look at it.

Check and make sure the filters are clean. Strange noises can occur if they are dirty. It may also be a "dry" fan bushing. At the end of the fan barrel, (Usually the left side) there is a brass bush which can dry out and cause a squeaking noise. Carefully insert the long tube of a WD40 (or similar) oil spray can, into the outside of the fan barrel on the left hand side. NOT when the machine is running.. and give it a light spray, the oil should seep into the bush and quieten it down if that's the problem. To do the job properly however, the indoor unit would need to have the cover taken off and the bushing removed and oiled....

Hi Good day!!! yes based on what you've said you hear something suspicious in your unit. maybe something wrong with the gears. I'll suggest to contact your local technician to check your unit because it is very risky if you open it on your own.

Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL

Microtek is famous for making a good product that will last you a good while if it is maintained and taken care of. Yet their lack of support for said products is lacking. Try to uninstall and reinstall all the software for the scanner. Make sure before you uninstall that you still have the install disc. If not then you can find the drivers on the Microtek site.

Scanning does not stops

please check all sensor arms in the document feeder. The sensor arm in the middle just below the separation pad is called 'paper end sensor'. If this sensor arm is blocked or broken the scanner don't stop the feeder.
Another possibility is a driver error.
