That fan is in the tuner section which houses the Direc TV part as well. It runs no matter what you do and should NOT be disconnected by any means.

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer

Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.

Loud buzzing noise from inside Jenn Air 2389G fridge

i don't know jennair specifically being from england.
however, there is often a fan inside the back panel and the noise you heard was the fan hitting ice. the reason now not heard and fridge not working may be that the ice has built up so much the fan is jammed

Squeeling noise coming from AC, compressor is on, fan not turning

The squealing noise is coming from the compressor. This noise is common when the unit reaches extreamly high pressures. The pressure is most likely high because the fan is not running. Since you can spin the motor it could be that the motor has damaged windings. Leave the unit off until the repairs are made to ensure no further damage to the compressor. You will need a multi meter and some experience reading wiring diagrams to properly diagnose the system. You can perform an amp draw on the motor to see if it is in spec. You can measure the volts to the motor and see if they are in spec. Finally the contactor can be measured with the proper meter to see if it is working properly.

My suggestion is to have the Motor and capacitor both replaced. Also inspect the wiring in the condenser electrical compartment for any signs of damage or burning.

Fan noise?

does it sound like grinding ball bearings? like a bad computer fan? Hate to break it to you but it is the color wheel(part of the light engine) $900 part about $350 labor, and if the tv is out of warranty your out of luck. (happened to me)
