    I'm writing to you from a Dell computer of a friend. My EMachine will not start.I have had it for one(1) year as of this past Christmas.You guys have tried to fix it before with no results.It has a two(2) warrenty on it ,plus I bought a Three(3) year warrenty with walmart,You even sent me a new Monitor ,but that didn't work. When the Machine would start,it sound as if the Motor would race and race.It would race so hard and loud that you couldn't hear anyone talking in the room.Now the Computer will not come on at all. I have high speed internet service,just incase you are wondering.I'm a 67 year old lady and not some kid.I am on Social Security and don't have money to waste. I have been told by every body that I bought a piece of junk and that EMachine will not fix it. I hope and pray that you guys will prove them wrong. Thank you ......Patricia Scott....

Which fan where? The power supply has a fan in it.
The CPU/processor has a fan over it. Some Desktop PC's have a 3" fan pulling air out of the case. I'd say the fan needs replaced.
I'll post a link so you might find a fan that may look like your's for replacment. Once you know your CPU's Socket type, the search gets easer.
Fans for Intel Pent 4 CPU.

On the left side of this window under Subcategories, pick your Socket type. You'r manual will tell you what Socket type your system uses.

    I hope you understand things a wee bit better.




Which fan?
Is the machine booting up finally?

There are two basic fans. One over your processor and one inyour power supply. When theiry are worn out they roar with vibration, especially when starting cold. Once they warm up they expand and quieten down. The best thing is to check and change a roaring fan, and also make sure it's not rubbing against wires, which also causes loud buzzing and roaring.

Let us know, okay

My Viking Freezer is three years old. The problem is the constant roaring sound it makes. No one can sit in my kitchen, family room or living room for very long before the noise from this freezer gets on...

There are several fans on your unit one on the top with the compressors, one inside the freezer, and one at the bottom. If you open the freezer and the noise gets louder or stops then you know it is the evaperater fan. Sometimes the bearings start to go and they make louder noise. Also check on the back wall for frost you could have a frosting problem and the fan blade is hitting on the ice

2003 GMC Envoy Service Engine light on. OBD2 Code is P0128

Ah the famous P0128.....It's 1 of 2 things. If your fan is not engaged constantly (would sound like an airplane or big rig everytime you step on the gas) and is working properly, that rules out the fan clutch. The other common problem is the thermostat. Replace the thermostat and the code will go away. Engine temperature needs to be at 210 degrees on these engines. If the fan clutch is constantly engaged, it's cooling the engine off constantly and won't get up to 210 fast enough. If it's the thermostat, it's stuck open and isn't allowing the coolant to properly heat up in time.

Runs constantly and will freeze up the coils. Will not stop compressor to allow the coils to thaw.

You are taking too big a bite out of your humidity at one time ... plade the adjustment on a higher setting for now. When youe machine has achieved that goad, ower the setting a bit.

Alternatively, set a small fan to blow more room air on the coils ... you will probably still have to adjust the stting higher ...

Thanks for using

Heater fan makes a roaring noise, how do I get to the fan for inspection?

Chances are that using WD-40 will not do anything except create a big mess to work in. I would say that the blower motor either has a bad bearing in it or the blower fan wheel may be broke. You could try to do this your self but be very careful you have to remove the PCM to remove the blower. There is a possibility that you could damage the PCM if you not sure what you are doing.
