Sony 42" Grand Wega makes noise constantly when running

This recently started and seems to be coming from the rear left of the TV. It is pretty loud . I am guessing the fan, any suggestions?

    Thanks, very much appreciated. Model is KF 42WE610. I have not replaced a fan before- is it fairly straight forward?

    Thanks

    I removed the rear fan and cleaned it, now I'm not shure wich way it goes back in. Should the lable face back or front of TV, should it be blowing or sucking heat?

    Hello, I replaced the fan. the noise has minimized but it is still rather loud, a constant humming if you will.

    Any further troubleshooting ideas?
    Thanks

    Ok, I got it.  The one that I ordered was a DC fan, the one that you can see the exit opening for if looking at from the rear. Is the other fan directly over this as I can see what looks like the same size piece.

That is correct, it would be fan noise and fan will be replaced.
Let me know exact model number to help you in finding fan in parts stores.

    Yes, its very easy to replace fan as you need to recognize what fan is causing noise then take it out and replace it with new one.
    May be 4 screws and one connector.

Loud noise could be of any exhaust fans in TV.

The mirror assembly has no moving parts, this unit has a minimum of 3 fans! if the fan blades get too dusty the fan will get noisy. Try cleaning the fans with compressed air.
