Fan noise loud, bulb burst. Replaced with new bulb. Noise even louder! Unit shuts itself off.

I have a hand-me-down Infocus x1. The fan has been making a loud noise. Husband cleaned unit out..previous bulb burst. Husband replaced with a new bulb. Noise was even louder! Unit shut itself off. We are wondering if we need to buy a new unit, or if this one can be repaired?

The bulb may have burst from overheating from a fan not working to cool it down. and it can be replaced. it does take, however, a while to replace it because you have to take half of it apart. but make sure it's the fan first. take the lamp door off and remove the lamp. use something small and thin to push in the switch that the lamp door usually activates. turn the projector on and see if the lamp fan and the colorwheel (the multicolor glass disk) are spinning. if the fan spins, the noise may be from the colorwheel motor going bad. the fan can be purchased through an infocus authorized service center. check the website for the closest one. but the colorwheel for the x1 cannot be purchased seperately from the optical engine, and that costs a fortune. but here is the part number for the 80mm fan- 526-0152-00.

Noise probably from fan


Amost certainly a failing bearing on a fan motor, or, if you are really unlucky, the colour wheel drive motor. Most probable is a fan fault. The only real way to isolate it is to test each fan in turn until the faulty one is found. If you are lucky, the faulty fan may feel stiff or rough when you rotate the blades gently by hand. If it's not a faulty fan, you are in for a rather expensive repair....

The bearing cannot be repaired - the faulty fan must be replaced

Every 20 minutes, my freezer would make a crackling like noise. What does this mean and how can I fix this?


Refrigerators are not the most complicated appliance in the house, but it still takes a lot of parts working together perfectly to keep your food cold. If one of those parts breaks down, or begins to, you may start to hear new noises from your refrigerator. Fridges make some noise during regular operation, but if it suddenly gets louder or makes a different noise, it is a good sign that something is wrong.

Freezer Fan
Freezers can be located on either side of the refrigerator, or may be at the top or the bottom of the unit. If you hear a noise coming from the area in which the freezer is located, you should open the freezer and see if the noise gets louder. Any squealing sounds coming from this area indicate a broken freezer fan. These units are not designed to be repaired, and eventually one making a loud noise will break and need replacement.

Condenser Fan
All motors typically require a fan in order to maintain a safe operating temperature. Like the fan in the freezer, the fan that runs on the condenser can also break down and create a similar squealing noise. The location of the fan noise is what differentiates the freezer and condenser fan problems. If you hear a fan noise coming from the lower part of the fridge at the rear, it is likely the condenser fan causing the problem.

Action to do
Open the freezer to see if the noise gets louder. If the noise becomes louder with the freezer open, the noise is likely caused by the evaporator fan. If the evaporator fan is the culprit, replace it to get rid of the noise.

Pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and check the condenser fan at the back of the fridge. A metal panel may cover the fan, which can be unscrewed. Listen to see if the fan is the source of the noise. If it is, the fan may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Good day ! : )

The bulb on X1 blew out, I replaced the bulb, the


it's the fan. if it won't spin full power, it can't cool down the projector and it'll shut down. there are 2: 60mm (part # 526-0153-00) and 80mm (526-0152-00). both can be purchased from infocus or an infocus service center.

FAN ON COMPRESSOR SHUTS OFF


The loud buzzing noise if you have heat pump. May be comming from your reversing valve. To quiet this down. Turn off power to outside unit and squirt some oil into the reversing valve coil area. The coil slides onto a shaft this shaft has corroded a liitle and does not let the valve center itself. Alittle oil on the shaft help and quiets this down. DO REMOVE THE COIL WITH THE INSIDE AIR HANDLER POWER ON IF YOU HAVE POWER TO THE THE COIL AND REMOVE IT IT WILL BURN IT UP. yOU CAN JUST UNPLUG THE COIL IF YOU LIKE. RUSS

Beeping sound coming from control panel model#10656562400


Hi!
Self-defrosting refrigerators use a circulating fan to move the air through the freezer and refrigerator compartments. This fan runs whenever the unit is cooling. The fan is located in the freezer.
Over time, the fan may become noisy--usually making a chirping or squealing sound, though it may make a loud groaning noise instead.

To find out if the fan is causing the noise, just open the freezer door and push any fan/light switches. If the noise is louder when the door is open, the evaporator fan motor is the cause which can't be lubricated or repair instead required to be replaced.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Infocus x1 noise problem


the colorwheel motor does burn out after a while (from heat and dust), but as long as it spins at the right speed, you won't see a problem in the image. if it's making noise, it's going to go soon. it does need replacing. however, infocus does not sell individual parts for the x1 optical engine. you will need to replace the entire engine, which costs up to $2000. so, enjoy the last few hours with your machine and look into getting another.

Infocus x1 projector


Indeed, the problem you describe is the Color Wheel. Very common issue in the X1,2 projectors. Unfortunately the only fix is to replace this wheel. The cost of the part generally runs around $175 but the labor to replace is about the same. You will need to find an authorized service center where you live or send it to a repair facility. Parts for any of the InFocus units are generally not available to the public, alas the Service Centers. Maybe for the same cost you could look at a new projector, like I did.

It's probably the colorwheel not the fan, can only be fixed by replacement.
