Question about HP Compaq Presario F730US Notebook

1 Answer

Cooling fan make noise upon start-up.

When I turn on my F730US after it has been sitting overnight, the cooling fan makes a spinning noise for a few minutes until it warms up. I tried to vacuum the dust out from outside the fan vents to no avail. Does the fan have to be replaced? Is there any way to lubricate the fan spindle?

It is very difficult to get access to the bearing to lubricate it. The best solution is to replace the fan.

Upon starting my truck I hear the sound of rushing air for about 30 seconds then ok; why?


I would say more than likely it the radiator cooling fan. For some reason some vehicles, no matter what temperature, the cooling fan clutch engages which makes the cooling fan run at full speed like there's no fan clutch.

It sort of makes it sound like the engine is revving up but it's simply the sound of the rushing air from the fan clutch making the cooling fan spin at full speed.

Hope this helps.

My 2003 x5 bmw 4.6is, makes a knocking noise in the Engine upon stating it up, but usually goes away after a few seconds.


Sounds like excess bearing clearance, when the engine sits overnight the oil between the bearings and the crankshaft is able to run back into the oil pan. When you first start it up it takes a few seconds for the oil pump to fill the spaces back up and you get some clatter.

My amana abl1922fes has quit cooling several times in the 5 years i've had it. We unplug it, let it set overnight and plug it back in and it cools fine for a few months when it quits cooling again. Can...


when it stops cooling, you will see some ice build up in the freezer. Letting it sit unplugged melts the ice and you will see some water under the fridge. Connect power and it works. Cause: don't overload the fridge and the freezer. Make sure the doors close snugly. Clean all lint build ups by vacuuming under and behind the fridge after switching off power.

Cooling fan not turning


You need to replace it.

Which cooling fan? There are sometimes several and the hardest one to replace is in the power supply. If you are handy with tools and don't mind the work, you can replace it yourself, otherwise you will have to get someone to do it for you.
