    It sounds like the fan may be dieing. What laptop do you have? I need as much info as you can supply in order to be able to help you further. But odds are you will probably end up having to replace your CPU fan (or other cooling fan if there is one).

Check if there are dust debris on the fan, it could create a grinding noise, but if the fan is clean, there could be a mechanical problem with it. Hope this helps

I have an older model Avanti Wine Chiller that began making a very loud almost-grinding noise last night. It continues to cool but I have turned it off due to the deafening sound. Any ideas?


first off determine where the noise is coming from what area? I suspect u may have a fan or condenser fan problem restricted , impeded or going out?

Replace motorized damper


It may be possible that water is splashing from the icemaker fill tub and running down into the fan area and freezing. When the refrigerator goes into defrost the ice thaws and the noise stops.

The water dispenser in our GE side by side fridge model gss25wsti made a loud grinding noise and stopped working Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions


First the water dispenser will not make any grinding noise while dispensing water perhaps a hum. The grinding noise is from the auger motor which dispenses crushed ice ad ice cubes. So please check the intake valve at the rear of the fridge if its working, if not you may have to replace the intake valve. Or if that"s ok please check the control module on the door of the freezer.

Mitsubishi mighty max 3.0 v8 loud noise coming from the fan area


If the fan is attached to the water pump tahe hold of a blade and try back and forward towards the motor. If there is movement there it will be either a fan hub failing or a water pump bearing. Second check remove the fan belt and check for noise.( idle engine for short period of time) If it is gone confirm pump by spinning any adjuster pulleys and check for noise or rough movement

What happened to my Samsung RS255BASB is a loud noise coming from the back of the fridge, one third the way up. sounds like a bad fan/ grinding fan. from the inside it's behind the area where there are...


The sound is of the fan touching the liner. They only way out is to change the bearing. And temporarily you can tap the area where the noise is coming from. When the fan straightens out the noise will stop. But this is not the remedy.

Backing up very loud grinding like bearings


I would investigate the transfer case. By your description here it sounds as if the gears inside are worn and the drive chain inside is rubbing, causing the loud noise you hear.

Loud noise when turned on


Loud grinding noises are always a BAD sign of things to come. It could have been that something was in the fans on your unit or it could have been the hard drive. Either way, I would return it if it is still under warranty. You will not regret this.

you will need to replace the fan the reason it stops it the door switch needs to be closed for the fan to operate. with the door open press the switch and see if that is in fact where the noise is coming from if so it sounds like the bearings are going out
