Xbox 360 is loud - sounds like a loud fan motor. How can I make it run quietly?

You can try installing the game you want to play on the Xbox 360 Hard Disk, which reduces the motor noise to an extent, however there is no permanent way to fix the loud fan motor noise while playing the game with the disk in the drive.

Make sure you keep your Xbox 360 unit well ventilated, ensure it does not gather dust near the small vents and openings on the unit.

My Xbox 360 makes a loud humming noise while i play

The Xbox 360 does not like to be moved when playing a disk some of the mechanics may have misaligned or slightly out of sync this may be reason the DVD drive is making those sounds.

I strongly recommend you remove any visible dust from the 360 especially the sides and air vent holes using a vacuum cleaner. Once youve cleaned it place it horizontal (never on carpet) on a flat surface well ventilated away from other devices that generate a lot of heat.

As for the 'shredding sound', place in **** game into the 360 when it starts to make those sounds again gently tap the 360 on top (where the DVD drive is) until it stops making that sound. This doesnt always work but has for me and many others.

My experience tells me that dust can build up not only inside the 360 but also the drive itself which can lead disc read errors and the sounds and you mentioned.

Remember DUST and HEAT is the 360's biggest enemy and can cause RROD, 1 Red Light Problem, and disk errors.

Hope this helps..good luck!

The XBOX's have some history of noise from the Hard Drives to the Fans. As long as performance is not a problem, you should be OK.

You may want to be sure that you have adequate space around the unit to ensure proper cooling and airflow. Heat is bad for these devices, like any computer.

To me, without hearing it myself, I would say that it is your hard drive, probably working hard to keep up with the game!
