SOURCE: Computer making strange noise

This is not a problem most people experience this. Its just your fan making noise monstly because it is touching some wire inside. You don't need to worry about this.

Probably just needs replaced. Sometimes one can clean it and it will last a little longer. It's an easy job to replace it. Just download the manual for your model from the maufacturer's website to see how to gain access to the inside of the computer. Replacement fans are available at places like CompUSA or similar stores, or you can order one on the internet. Just take the existing fan out of the case and take it to the store with you to be sure you get the right one. Take care about static electricity, as it can zap your components, especially the motherboard and the memory sticks. Touch the computer case before touching any parts inside the computer.

If you don't feel comfortable changing the fan out, a computer repair place can probably do it for not much.

SOURCE: I have fan failure. It has been making a strange

Hi,
You need to replace the CPU fan as it has failed, I recommend that you refrain from using the computer until you have replaced the fan, this is because it has no way of cooling down and you will be running the risk of blowing the processor and/or the motherboard up.
The CPU fan is located inside the case and is attached to the motherboard on top of the processor.




Regards.

Normally a sound like this is vibration or the fan making contact with the casing. If you pick up on the unit a press on it in different places and the sound goes away it i vibration. If its the fan there will be evidence on the edges of the fan blade. You can also turn off the power and slowly turn the fan and see if it hits. Just remember sometimes just moving the unit around will make a nois start or stop. good luck

Sounds like when it was knocked over, the bearing sleeve was kicked out of alignment. Since there is expansion to the sleeve due to heat (friction by the rotation), this only happens when it is running a while. When taking it apart, take a good look at both bearings to see if any damage has occurred, squirt a little oil into the sleeves and try it out again.

You have two fans and a compressor which could be making the noise. Inside the freezer behind the back cover is the evaporator fan. It probably stops running when you open the door. Hold the door switch down to keep the fan running to see if it's making the noise.
the compressor and other fan is under the unit accessed from the back behind the cardboard cover.

Strange straining sound


Either compressor is going bad or the fan is rubbing. There is a condensor fan that comes on only when the compressor starts. So check the fan out first to make sure that it is not rubbing or moving around. If that is not then check the compressor by letting it run for about 5 minutes then touch the top of the compressor. BE careful as it can be extremly hot that will show you one of two things either bad compressor or condensor is dirty and a garden hose with a jet blast of water will solve the problem. If that doesnt work either compressor is bad and will either need to be replaced for about 250 dollars or unit will need to be replaced

sounds like you have something stuck in your pump. I know it sounds strange that it more than likly does not make any noise in the drain. But i garrenty you there is a problem within your pump. Tilt the unit back and prop against the wall. DO NOT TIP ALL THE WAY OVER! you will see the pump it has 2 clips unclip them take the 2 hoses off and remove the pump. water will come out so be prepaired with towels. look inside the pump there will either be money in there or a bra wire. MAKE SURE YOU TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST. Let me know how it goes

The color wheel is the most common problem when it comes to noise from DLP's. To determine if it is a color wheel or fan: Turn on the set. When the noise starts, turn off the set. If the noise goes away within 5 seconds, then the color wheel is bad. If the noise goes away after one to one and a half minutes after the set was shut off, then one of the fans are making the noise.
