Good day sir, hello, there are several option you may try, spray a little contact cleaner on your fan motor, just make sure its safe for electricity, second you either replace the fan, need to disassemble it, and reassemble the unit again, or check if the air ducks on desktop PC is not restricted. Hope this helps.

Call out the warranty supplier. Where is the noise coming from? If no warranty, check the electrics to the compressor and fan. sometimes the noise is the fan. Also switch off overnight and leave doors open. When restarting, if the noise has gone it will have been the internal fan hitting on ice buildup.

Fan noisey and cmt getting hot on my toshiba a45

Replacing the fan may not be for the faint of heart. Alternatively, buy a can of air & blow the darn thing out. Though not always the best course of action, I sometimes do it with the notebook turned on. This way, I stand a better chance of expelling the gunk than if the fan blades were stationery. Next, I would buy a $15 laptop stand with a usb-pwered cooling fan.

Noisey fans

Noisy fans are not dirty fans, they're simply noisy. There is nothing to clean.

Fan is noisey.. i was told I need a new one.. can i fix it

You don't say if this is a laptop or a tower version.

If a laptop, leave it to a repair shop as it takes skill to open and get back together in one piece. If a tower, open the case and investigate. Sometimes a wire will bend and hit the fan... if the fan can be removed easily, maybe you can do it yourself. Use the same size AND RATING fan and install in the correct airflow direction.

Noisey cooling fan on graphics card.

Pretty much you are looking at replacing the entire card. Fans can be found but it is difficult and it is not worth the time generally to find them.
