How do i fix a noisy indoor unit fan motor


I have a 40 year old Sears fractional HP dehumidifier that gets noisy from time to time and I solve this by applying some oil to the motor shaft next to the bearings on the motor. The other possibility is the fan blades may be slightly touching something.

Got noise from fan told its fan on hard drive worn is this fault with them only 2 years old


The hard drive does not have a fan. There is a fan on tht CPU heatsink and a fan in the power supply. You may have a case fan for additional cooling, but this is not always installed.
Noisy fans are easy to replace, but not the one in the power supply.

What is your doing? Very nosiy sounds like high speed. Could be a defective ECT - engine coolant temp sensor.

I have a noisy Pro-Form Model 285T treadmill


Hey Richard Depending on the noise it could be one of several components failing. If loud clanking or clunking noises these components are Drive Motor, Front or Rear Rollers.
If it is a loud humming noise increasing and decreasing when planting yours feet then it is either the Inductor ( square object ) or the internal windings of the Drive Motor.
Unplug your unit remove the motor shroud with a long shaft flat tip screw driver you'll be able to pin point the problem with this tool.
Now locate front shaft and rear roller tension adjusting bolt ( refer to owners Manual) plug in unit, start unit and touch flat tip on the shaft and place your ear on the handle the noise will be amplified and you will be able to locate the noise repeat this procedure on the other above mentioned components if problem is not found. GOOD LUCK!

Noise


That noise is due to your Power-Supply-Unit, Hard-Drive, Optical Drives, other spinning devices, and ventilation fans. You can reduce some of it but not all of it.

For example, your hard-drive could be rather old and producing a lot of noise when it spins up, reads, or writes data. You could replace it with a newer hard-drive which barely makes any noise. The same with your Power Supply Unit (PSU). It could be old and rather noisy. You could buy yourself a newer one such as the ones made by PC Power & Cooling which gets you a quieter product. However that's about it as you DO NOT want to reduce the amount of fans in your system.

Sorry if this was not the solution you were after. However most noise from a computer stems from ventilation fans which can be replaced but should not be removed.

Noisy Oven when heating up & fan spinning


Neth, Im not familiar with this oven but I thing someone is handing you a line. I've been doing this for 30 years now and never saw a oven cavity arch when heating. The fact is that there is something wrong with the fan motor or fan blades itself. Call this cat back and have them honor your warranty...Catriver..post back.
