Check if your fridge has a condenser fanmotor, it could be bad and needs replacing. Use a vacuum cleaner to clean the dust off the condenser coils.

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.

Fridge making loud screeching sounds


Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

Loud rattleing sound


If this AC is a thru walled, since it is new it is better to inquire to the people where you buy this unit, for this type of problem. They must have some authorized repair man/shop or, use its product warranty.

The problem could be also uneven placement of its base. This could maybe hitting the fan guard, some loose connection or some foreign object left that's hitting something inside.

Noise from hitachi 42PD5000


The noise is coming from one of the plasma driver boards. There are 2 inside the set. These are essentially power supplies for the plasma itself and contain many capacitors. The noise you hear is some oscillation inside a cap or two. This is an indication that one or more components have drifted from their rated value. While the set will continue to work for a while, that board should be replaced. If the board fails, 1/2 of the picture will be blank or the set will not start at all. Call around to get the cost of that board. Please note that continued use of the set WILL NOT cause any harm. This is an annoyance only at this point.

Loud fan noise near bottom of freezer on my kenmore elite


There is a fan down on the bottom of your unit it sounds to me like the fan is making the noise as the bearings are getting dry. You should be able to move the unit out from the wall and get behind and look at the fan right next to the compressor. let me know how it goes. ken
