Loud noise from unit

After I put a game in and the unit begins reading it a loud noise comes from it. I can still play the game but the noise is unbearable. I have not played for weeks because of the noise. It sounds like something is scraping or rubbing as the disc spins. What can I do?

From what i understand, the dvd drive can spin wonky allowing the disks to foul and cause large scratches

details can be found here.

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.

Loaded game = loud buzzing


After removing the casing, all that need to be done was loosen (yes, loosen) a screw on the inner frame about a quarter turn. This allowed a little movement to the frame and stopped the buzzing.

Loud humming noise coming from 360


The loud humming noise is usually the DVD drive. It is very fast but is very loud. If you have the NXE dashboard you can download games to you Xbox 360 to run them from the hard drive (you will still need to put in the disk for copy protection issues). The Xbox should make less noise then. Try to mount the Xbox 360 on a hard surface which is in contact with a soft floor to reduce the noise travelling through your home.
If it is making a loud noise while there is no disk in the drive then take the console to a Microsoft dealer whenever you can to have them take a look at it.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.


Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.

The drive motor is SERIOUSLY damaged. It will have to be replaced, but good luck finding parts. Call around to local service shops and see if any have parts units.
