Fan grinding sound usually comes from the fan that sits atop of the CPU. Get the CPU fan replaced cause the bearings are going bad.

Have grinding noise in dash repeat over and over. sounds like CD trying to recycle but no CD inside and no cassette tape. it only comes on when ign switch on, no sound when key switch on access


I bet you have a leaf or leaves inside the heater blower compartment. The blower motor fan is always turning slowly even though the AC or fan is turned off to provide for ventilation. See if the grinding noise changes when you turn the AC fan on or off.

Tne fan continually makes a pulsating / grinding sound. How do I know if it is making the sound because it is out of balance or because there is a problem with the motor?


Try spinning the fan by hand. If the grinding sound is present, there may be something caught in the motor which is rubbing.

If the fan is out of balance, you may be able to see it vibrating or wiggling back and forth a little, especially at higher speeds.

Good luck!

A noise had been gradually increasing from a grinding sound to a high-pitched whine. COntinues until the screen is completely off. Sounds like a fan motor may be out of lubrication.

Grinding noise when fan spins fast


Try cleaning out the fans before going to the bother of replacing it. There maybe some debris stuck in it causing the strange noise. A can of compressed air often removes most of the dust and debris but on occassion it is necessary to open the case and manually clean the fan.

Generally if its grinding and clicking noises it will be the hard drive the fans will cause more a whirr than a grind

Sony vaio fan is making a grinding noise, how can i fix this?


The sony VGN-S460 seems to have an inherent problem with their cpu fans. It is apparent that the fan uses a ball bearing system which over time becomes worn and causes the grinding sound.

The only solution is to replace the entire fan assembly as they are inseparable.

Front end grinding sound


My '99 Intrepid at 132k mi had a sound like a pan of rocks rolling around in the front end. The engine fan and the A/C fan were shot. Replacement of fans and a couple of belts (serpentine and another) cost about $800 at the dealer in May 2006. Still going strong at 152k, but should replace the steering gear box.

Xbox 360 grinding sound


Sounds like a wire hitting one of the fans inside. It could also be the hard drive if you have one. Try to change the way the console is standing and see if the sound gets worse or better to try and narrow down the issue.
