I would remove top cover and see how easily accessible the fan is it shouldnt be too hard. Once removed check out the specifications on it as far as current and DC voltages and most likely you can find one at roadioshack website and order one for under 10 dollars. You cannot oil these. You spray oil on it then when fan turns on it will spray intire inside of you receiver with oil not a good idea. I hope this helps. Good luck

Why is my VIP 612D receiver is making a grinding noise


Most likely the cooling fan bearings are going out meaning that you need a new box. Dish should send you one at no charge unless it was a purchased box from a 3 party.

Bulb went out for the 2nd time in less than a year on Mitsubishi WD52327. Also making a loud grinding noise. What is my problem?


the grinding noise is from the cooling fan that cools the bulb. It needs to cleaned or replaced. You will need to take the back cover off the set to get at it. If the cooling fan is not doing its job that would cause the short bulb life and the noise

My Hp DV6174CL laptop makes a fan grinding noise near the power button. this happened after a repair from Micromedics


The DV6000 units have a cooling fan located on the bottom of the case top left side.
If you hear a grinding noise, please do not use the unit.
Bring it back for repair. The blower is on-top of the CPU and if it does not recv. the correct cooling, it will take out the processor.

My fridge quit cooling...lights are still on but no cooling action. was making a bad grinding noise that I thought was happening when it was making ice but now I'm not so sure. It's only one year...


may be your unit is not defrosting and the grinding noise could have been the fan tuching on the build up of frost, you need to check your timer or defrost thermostat

After Recording


Unit sounds like it has a small cooling fan at the rear. A bad fan bearing will produce a noise when dried-out. Replace the cooling fan.
