You could try blowing the fan area out with some compressed air. The fan might need to be replaced.

SOURCE: loud noise grinding sound computer works ok

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions


Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

If it the Powers supply fan then these ase sometimes replaceable.
Beware howeve that even after disconnection high voltage may still be present.in side the PSU.

Better to replace the whole power supply witha the same or greater wattage.

SOURCE: a loud grinding noise comes from the fan area

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

Loud Noise in Central Dash area, 2000, F-150,,Sounds like a fan hitting against a heavy plastic part.Starts around 45MPH.. I think its either air flow or speed causing it.


Have you checked to see if the heater motor is ok. Sometimes the newer ones have a bearing in the end by the plastic fan and the bearing will allow the fan to drop down and cause a loud noise when running. To check turn off the heater motor fan on the dash and see if the noise goes away.

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

Loud fan noise on acer aspire T690 PC


The first thing to do is to clean the PC. More than likely it is just dirty. Remove all cables and take it outside. Remove the side panel and using compressed air give it a good cleaning. Pay special attention to the fan areas. After cleaning check to make sure the fans are all working and that the processor cooling fan is firmly connected. http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-11319_7-6240575-5.html?tag=rb_mtx;wp_body

Loud noise


The compressor fan is making the noise and causing overheating as well. Easy fix. Call Danby with model # and they can figure out correct fan. Part will cost around $10 and is easy to replace. Plug and play with screws. Good luck
