Loud noises coming from power supply fan?

I can run my computer for hours, then a loud noise comes from the fan by the power supply( not 100% sure.) Sometimes it happens within an hour, other times it has run for 12 hours before it happens. The only way to get it to stop is to shut down my computer and the turn it back on. Once in a great while it stops on it's own. It just happens whenever it feels like it. This has been happening for about 4 months.

It might be the fan of your cpu has dust.and making it the fan hard to spindle.if you can dismantle your cpu fan or the fan in your power supply.just clean it with the paint brush.or do it with vaccum cleaner.if you have air compressor the would be better.just blow out the dust.then if you can do it also just putting oil or grease inside the fan at the core.the one that has magnet.it will smoothen the spindling.ok good luck

Card started making loud clicking noise i have tried blowing dust out of it when i start my computer within a few minutes clicking starts again


Hi, couple main reasons to get loud clicking in a computer. First is the hard drive, so if you can turn the system off and disconnect the power and the information cable from the hard drive, yes your computer will not boot all the way back into windows but that is ok since you just want it running for awhile to see if the clicking stops. Next thing would definitely be the fans, any fan in the system, the blade part of the fans can get loose sometimes and start to hit the sides as it spins around, you need to be sure about which part it is that is causing it, it can come from the power supply fan, the case fan, the video card fan, the cpu fan, and you might have more than one case fan, test by disconnecting one at a time just make sure to disconnect the device too so you do not over heat anything. Once you identify which fan just replace it, if its something like power supply or video card, unfortunately you might want to look into either warrantying the part or buying a new one.

My Bosch SHU43C will sometimes make a loud noise


It may be more cost affective to just replace this unit. the circulation motors that are used in these dishwashers are not reliable. the wash impellers seems to have issues dealing with staying attached to the drive stud and shaft. this will cause the impeller ti shift inside the housing, causing noise and jams.

A new circulating impeller kit will cost about 100 dollars and, labor for this type of repair is 80 dollars an hour.

Kenmore top-freezer fridge makes a loud grinding noise for different periods of time - sometimes for 10 seconds and sometimes for 5+ minutes; and sometimes it won't happen for a week and other times it...


Remove the back wall of freezer. If the coils are frost solid youll need to advance the defrost timer(top inside refrige part) w/ a small flat screw driver, the defrost heater should glow red within a good minute. also youcan turn blade to be sure it is bracked and unobstructed.

Loud Buzzing Noise from Behind Freezer


Sounds like the freezer fan blade is hitting on a build up of ice or frost. You may have a defrost issue, or it may be a one time thing, like the door was open for a long time (object holding door partially open) or also check the ice dispenser duct door to make sure it is closing. Sometimes a chunk of ice hangs up in the ice shoot, allowing moist air to enter freezer, resulting in the extra frost / ice near the freezer fan. You might also check the door gaskets, especially the bottom side where sugary liquid spills might cause a gasket to tear. #2: Long run times: If cooling is good, don't worry. Older refrig's often ran less time, but used much more electricity than the newer refrig's, even though new one run longer. (Like having a 40 watt light bulb on for 20 hours a day uses less electricity than having a 100 watt bulb on for 10 hours a day)

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


if you have ice buildup then the fridge may be low on freon.
or there is dust clogging around the pump or fan is not running.
remove the bottom or back and look around the compressor.
see that the fan is running.

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill

Problem with computer running


It sounds like it's overheated. If you can do this, remove the covers and check the CPU fan and make sure it's running and not full of "bunnies'. Check the heatsink under the fan for dust also. Check the power supply fan to see if it is moving air. If you can, try running without the side panel to see if more air works....
