    today i turned on my xbox and the fan sounded as if it were accelerating and it sounded as if it was not going to stop speeding up and getting louder.. but it did and it is staying steady. Louder than normal. Maybe the sensor is bad...?

Yes, the cooling fans are commonly loud. Your xbox has a sensor on it when the CPU and GPU heat up, the rear fans suck more air out by turning up the rpms the fans run at.

Why does my Dish Network DVR-625 DTV receiver sound like it is running all the time


The Dish 625 as with the other Dish DVR systems has a fan built into the back of the unit. The fan runs nearly all the time to keep the internal drive cool. Sometimes the fan sounds louder that normal. what I do from time to time is take my shop vac and or the small vac u you use to clean your computer. and clean the vents around the fan. I do this on my desk top computer also.. Hope this helps.

Check the compressor start device. The fans will be running and the compressor fan will be running but the compressor is problaly not running. If it is then it could be the compressor itself that is not oumping.

My xbox360 is really loud I don't know what to do


1. If your xbox 360 is in a confined space your not allowing the console to allow fresh air in and the heat out . The reason for your 360 being loud is the fans get louder and louder when the 360 system senses that the gpu heat sink is getting too hot. If you leave your xbox 360 on while you away for too long or if you play for too long the fans will get louder and louder . Solution : move the 360 to an open aired room if the problem persist shut off your xbox 360 and let it cool down a bit .

I have my dometic Rooftop ac unit. The heatstrip/fan run perfectly but when I turn on the ac...the fan runs good but when the compressor kicks on it just hums.


The compressor coming on does make a slight "humming" sound which is normal. Is the unit cooling properly? Do you think it is louder than before?

Gateway laptop - whirring, buzzing sound


if it's a continuous whirring sound it is most likely the cooling fan. this is normal. as the computer gets older this will get noticably louder as the fan has to run faster to prevent overheating.

Xbox cooling fan sounds like a vacum running is this common


Hi,
probably worn bearings. Or clogged with dust.
turn-off, unplug all leads, get vacuum cleaner on it and suck the blighter.
re-set back up.
nothing to lose eh ?
