Yes treat the shaft and bearings of the fan motor and blade with some graphite to quiet it down and reduce the friction that's causing it to chirp / squeal.

Also if you have the set in a humid basement or in direct sunlight that's heating it reposition the set out of the direct sunlight as well as if in a humid area run a dehumidifier to prolong the life of your set.

Why does my xbox make a buzzing noise?

Hi the buzzing noise could be anything from the dvd drive to noise fans.

if you open the dvd tray and you still here the noise then this points to the fans being noisy, it might be that your xbox is starting to over heat and the fans are now working a lot harder and faster than normal

try the following
make sure air vents are free from dust use vac if needed to **** all the dust out
make sure the xbox is not being used on carpet or on top of anything else such as dvd player or sky box as these will cause over heating fast.

after doing the above see if you still have the noise if you do try standing the xbox up on its side to see if that stops the noise.

if it dont stop then the chances are your stuck with it till your xbox goes wrong then you could get the fans replaced.

the only moving parts are the 2 fans and the dvd drive so if you open the tray and the noise stops then its the dvd drive thats noisy, if it is that then their is nothing you can do unless the drive packs up and you need to replace it.

if the noise is still their with the drive open then its the 2 fans at the back that are noisy, its probably due to the xbox over heating which is the best trick and you will probably find you will have the dreaded rrod pretty soon so make sure its got good air flow around it so it can cool the best it can do

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Fan started making noise

I have one of these, and every so often, the fan would start making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I shut the fridge off for a while and left the door open to defrost it, it'd work fine again for a while before the noise came back. Apparently, some ice was building up between the metal heat-sink and the fan, causing the fan blades to scrape against the ice/frost build-up and make the "tick, tick tick" noise.
There is no compressor in the Avanti EC15W-2 mini fridge. It uses a simple Peltier junction device to transfer heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside/rear of the unit. So it should never get very loud at all, unless one of the two fans in it is acting up in some way.

1991 toyota camry. It has a new radiator and cap,

the a/c when running creates a lot of extra heat and needs second fan, if second fan is not working right this will cause overheating, if fan is creating a load noise it is likely bearing is bad and will not spin as fast as it should not cooling. also check that fan it not hitting anything if you describe loud noise i can give better idea

Fan/ engine whining sound

If the fan is only making wind noise it is ok. If it is making matalic noise replace fan. It would be a good idea to clean (blow)out the dust and dirt for the inside of the computer at this time.

Hotpoint side by side has recently bugun making a lot of noise

Check for frost in the freezer compartment that may suggest a defrost problem which would cause it to run for extended times and make more noise. The other possibility is that if the fan is making a up and down type of noise, it will need a new fan in the freezer section due to a faulty bearing in the motor.

My CPU is making lot of noise especially when I'm using programs like Adobe reader

The CPU wont make noise unless its frying. So its either your hard drives, cd drives, or your fans.
If its your fans i sugest buying newer "Cool Master" fans that are powerful but less noisy

Ps2 fan

Is your machine a old one or a slimline version??
Slimline version have a micro fan and can be replace it.The old one is even better because are cheap and you have a lot choice.Just make sure you get the right one.I believe is a ball bearing fan so if the balls inside get dirty or sticky ..or just defective from nature....nothing more you can do then get a new part.the noise is cming from micro vibration in rotation and all that 2000-3000 rpm in a minute make a lot noise
