It could be the magnet which holds the disc in place. It might be loose and out of center. It is held in place by some adhessive/ glue. You can either open the box and glue it yourself, which voids your warranty, or take it to a support center. MS leaves one year extra warranty with each repair (if still?!). but you may be charged around 100$ for it :(

Xbox 360 is loud - sounds like a loud fan motor. How can I make it run quietly?

You can try installing the game you want to play on the Xbox 360 Hard Disk, which reduces the motor noise to an extent, however there is no permanent way to fix the loud fan motor noise while playing the game with the disk in the drive.

Make sure you keep your Xbox 360 unit well ventilated, ensure it does not gather dust near the small vents and openings on the unit.

Loud humming noise coming from 360

The loud humming noise is usually the DVD drive. It is very fast but is very loud. If you have the NXE dashboard you can download games to you Xbox 360 to run them from the hard drive (you will still need to put in the disk for copy protection issues). The Xbox should make less noise then. Try to mount the Xbox 360 on a hard surface which is in contact with a soft floor to reduce the noise travelling through your home.
If it is making a loud noise while there is no disk in the drive then take the console to a Microsoft dealer whenever you can to have them take a look at it.

Xbox 360 will not read disc and is making a weird noise

Is it doing this while the disc is in the drive? Also does it sound like a loud rattling sound?
