Noise from the fan/fan motor

It is a kind of rattling noise from the fan motor i think, the noise is not always there, for example if i take the cover off the noise stops, so it seems to be related to air intake or not enough cold air?? also if it is not making a noise and i close the door the vibration of the door closing starts the noise, hope you can help

The bushings in the motor are worn out, replace motor. This should correct the problem.

Microwave makes noise when on

All microwaves make some noise when running. Cooling fans, exhaust fans, turntable motor, transformer, and magnetron all make noise. I assume you mean some unusual noise. I need to know more about what kind of noise it is - a loud roar, a rattling sound, a high-pitch squealing sound, a "clunk-clunk" sound or what? By the way, a "klunk-klunk" sound is frequently caused by small debris stuck to the wheels of the turntable support tray. Try cleaning those wheels and the track they roll in.

Noise is produced by the fan and the compressor. If it's always made this noise then it's OK. Capacitor simply gives the fan and compressor a high voltage impulse to start them. Has it always made this noise? Something inside could have shaken lose, the fan is unbalanced, etc.

HVAC is making rattling noise

Your fan that is attached to your blowermotor is loose, causing the rattle, or the bearings in your blower motor are bad, causing the shaft and fan both to rattle.

Noise maniford

what kind of noise? If it sounds like an exhaust leak. the 3400 motor has an issue with the manifold bolts breaking. Sometimes they get trapped in the cover and rattle. Does the noise get better as the car gets warmer? if so you need to replace some manifold bolts

My notebook has a rattling noise inside. We've tightened everything. We think it may be the fans inside. What do you think?

The fans overtime do develope some rattling in some brands of laptops. The only solution is to have them replaced.

Exactly the same prob. on my 01 gs.

I think the "rattleing" you hear has nothing to do with the car or octane. Also,higher octane fuels generate less heat,believe it or not.
