Fan noise on a Carousel 4200 Slide Projector is usually not the fan at all - - it is usually caused by the fan or mechanism drive belts (they stretch out and loose their elasticity over time & wear). Replacing the belts and re-greasing the fan axle should quiet the projector down nicely. The belts can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com
Words of warning:
* This replacement will require an almost total disassembly of the projector.
* Do NOT interchange the belts!!! They are size-specific.

Kodak slide projector 4400 developed a noise when last used. Is it safe to continue using?


If the new noise is constant, check the cooling fan for debris of some sort stuck in it.
Do not use the projector if the fan is not working as it might overheat and ruin your slides.

The motor struggles to turn the fan on my Braun Paximat N24 slide projector. Any ideas please?


My guess is the sleeve bearings in the fan motor need oil. I use teflon based oil.

I have a Kodak Carousel 650H and the fan is so noisy, how can I reduce the noise?


First of all, the projector is OLD (but you probably already know that).... As such, the grease in the projector either drips away or hardens over time. The first thing I would do is open the projector up and remove the fan. Replace the belts - they stretch over time and add a lot of noise at operating speed) (for Kodak parts try: www.micro-tools.com). Clean the hardened grease out with a mild solvent (WD-40 will work amazingly well). Inspect the "bearing surfaces" for excessive wear and replace components as necessary (for parts check with micro-tools.com). Addressing just these few things will make a remarkable difference to the operating noise from the projector. Good Luck !! Jim

Vivitar 3000af slide projector


While I am not sure of this feature on the Vivitar projectors, extensive testing has proven that running the cooling fan to accelerate cooling of a projection lamp will significantly shorten the lamp life. It is always recommended that (if possible) the projector system is cooled to room temperature without the fan running. Also, it is recommended not to move the projector until the lamp is completely cooled, as the lamp filament is extremely fragile when hot.

Kodak av 1050 slide projector with noisy fan motor


You can try a very small amount of a synthetic machine oil ( NOT WD-40!!!), but chances are if these machines have a bunch of hours on them the fan bearings (or the fan) will need to be replaced. The good news: you can contact www.micro-tools.com for Ektapro (or most any Kodak Slide Projector part). They have an amazing inventory of parts for Kodak machines and great technical support! Good Luck !!

We have a Kodak 700. After years of not using it turned it on tonight and there was very loud screeching noise. Is it the fan? Can it be repaired?


The KODAK Carousel 700 was manufactured from approximately 1964 through 1972.
The problem you describe is that the motor is spinning but one of the drive belts are not moving. That requires disassembly & complete service. Look for an Authorized Service Dealer in your area.

High pitch noise from the projector and is not from the fans


it's the colorwheel. if you have an infocus x1a, it is a dlp projector and has a colorwheel and dmd chip instead of 3 lcd panels. the colorwheel spins to allow the lamp to stike. it should make a slight high-pitched squeal. if it's too loud, the motor is shot and needs replacing.

Slide projector


No, there is no re-set...there is however a thermal-coupler which will burn out instead of your projector burning up. It is close to the "Kodak" name plate inside and right behind the lamp socket. You CAN by-pass this unit but I don't reccommend this since it then could become a fire hazzard. We still repair those: www.flcamerarepair.com
