I have the same laptop. This is a common problem. The first time I bought a new fan on eBay for about $70. They are expensive because the problem is so common with this laptop. It happened AGAIN. So, I was not going to pay for another. This is what I did:
Get a small phillips screwdriver. Unscrew the screws on the back where the fan is and pop off the plastic part. Unscrew the fan and take it out. Take it apart and a put a SMALL bit of oil(I used filter oil for my RC car) on the little pin that the fan spins on. Blow out the copper heatsink with can-of-air because it is also probably full of dust. Mine made so much noise and stopped working but after I oiled it, it was like brand new.
Don't think it's hard to take apart. It's pretty straightforward when you start unscrewing. The plastic piece you begin taking off is the one under the left speaker with the two circle bumps on it.

Samsung refrigerator loud noise

if the fan is still running when you open the door , the I would be leaving that idea as a last resort
try this
get 2 taper door chocks and put one either side at the back of the fridge
push the cabinet sideways and slip one chock in a bit then do the other side
many noises are from the bottom plate that the compressor is mounted on from tapping on the floor and lifting it a bit stops the noise
the same as when you open the door the pressure on that plate is removed and so it stops hitting the floor

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are hearing a loud fan noise in your Electrolux range, model# EI30ES55JS. Typically, a fan will be running if the oven or cooktop area is on. This is to help keep the electronics cool so they do not become damaged. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

My computer is becoming really hot and noisy. After turning on the computer, everything is good (no noise). Once around 15 minutes passes by or I open up a lot of programs together, my computer starts...

Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.
