Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook

1 Answer

Fan noise Fan sometimes gets noisy, other times blows quietly. I see a couple places on the web with replacement fans but according to irisvista site http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-1.htm the fan is a horrible pain to replace. Leaving this precious laptop with toshiba repair for 2 weeks is not an option since I'm in Guatemala. Any simpler options? thanks Had similar problem with Satellite S503 which I've had for 5 years. Does Toshiba just make lousy fans?

    The fan is on most of the time and sometimes gets louder, not really a bearing noise (which I'm familiar with). Seems more like something loose or crud getting into the blades and getting dislodged. Both fan and heat sink appear to be buried and a pain to get to so if I have to do one it probably behooves to do the other at the same time.

Is the fan making an unusual noise or just sounding normal but on more then it used to be? If its just on more than it used to be then it will be because the cpu is running hotter than it used to. They are set run at diff speeds depnding on how much cooling is reqd. Is the laptop being used in a warmer place than normal/before?

It may be that the thermal paste between cpu and heatsink isnt performing as well as it used to and needs replacing.

Noisy fan and no heat


Kitchen aid is made by Whirlpool. There is a very good chance the then thermal fuse on the back of the oven has tripped. Whirlpools are very prone to this fuse tripping after a clean cycle. The noisy fan is just that a noisy fan it will probably need replacing. I have replace a couple of them over the years. When you pull the oven out to replace the thermal fuse replace the fan motor at the same tiome.

Buzzing fan on a Marshall mg 100 head


Try to remove the fan and look for the sticker on the back side where the wires come out.

Remove the sticker, underneath it there will be a small aluminium cap (sometimes there is no cap and the axis is readily visible when you remove the sticker).

Take the cap off with a sharp tool (it shouldn't require a lot of force to do it), now you should be able to see the fan axis being held in place by a small clamp - put a drop or two of machine oil in there, move the fan blades a little to make the oil flow past the axis into the bearing.

Reinstall the cap, put the sticker back in place, reinstall the fan and test it.

Sometimes this will make things better, but if it doesn't then it is only fair to replace the fan.

Dell XPS 210 very noisy what can I do to quiet it


Hi, The noise from any computer is due to the fan. It is really the only thing that makes noise on a computer - unless you havce a bad drive. If you can hear a drive outside of the case, then it's about to fail. You can buy a quieter fan for your laptop. That will take a bit of investigation on your part, as far as getting the dimensions and wattage of the fan from your manufacturer's web site or the instruction manual that came with your computer. You would do best to go to a reliable and competent computer shop and have a quieter fan installed, rather than doing it yourself if possible. This mod is very simple, and can make your computer run better, provided you get a better fan that can cool your machine better.

Evaporator Fan Motor noise is excessive for this refrigerator. GE Profile CustomStyle Model PTI22SFMARBS Serial# SF900146V Jenn-Air


If the fan is always noisy, then it's probably is a bad fan. Easy to replace. But if the fan is quiet and purring sometimes, but buzzes like a demon when on high, then the problem is ice buildup. See a possible solution here.

Evaporator Fan Motor noise is excessive for this refrigerator. GE Profile CustomStyle Model PTI22SFMARBS Serial# SF900146V


Despite my urge to vent about GE refrigerators, I'll keep this short.

If you have a constant squealing noise from the evaporator fan in the freezer, there's a good chance the fan just has failing bearings, and replacing the evaporator fan might solve the problem.

But if the noise is intermittent; quiet sometimes but sometimes buzzing loudly, then my bet is there's nothing wrong with your evaporator fan. It's a problem with the design of GE fridges: They don't defrost completely. So ice builds up on the back freezer wall, etc., and on and around the evaporator fan. That's not a problem when the fan is in "low speed mode". But open the door, get the fridge warm, and the fan kicks into "high speed mode". That's when the noise will start, as the fan blades and assembly warps under speed to hit ice and start vibrating.

Acid test is this: While the noise is occurring, turn the fridge temp (not freezer) control up as high as you can without turning off the fridge. That will make the fan shift into low speed. If the noise stops, you got ice on the fan, my friend.

In that case, unplug the fridge, and get a hair dryer and blow warm air into and onto the evaporator fan area. Maybe gently whack the fan area with your hand a bit, to knock the ice off. Once you get all the ice off, turn it back on. If it runs on high, without any noise, the problem is fixed ... until the next set of high humidity days. I plan to post a video about this, once I get it edited to remove the expletives. ;-)

GE will sell you a "moisture kit" for $340, which may fix the problem, but only if your fridge is out of warranty.

If your fridge is still under warranty, GE will tell you there's nothing wrong and that maybe you just need ear plugs.
