Hi,
Before you replace it, pull the cover off and see if you can get some WD-40 worked into the shaft bearings...spray the shaft at each end with the WD-40 and then spin the motor by hand with the power off...after a bit the shaft may loosen up and then you can plug it in and get it running...then lubricate the bearing by dropping a few drops of light motor oil where the shaft enters the motor....
If the motor spins freely but does not run then it will need to be replaced..this may cost more then your unit is worth...matching up a motor can be difficult but changing it really is often not that hard...if you can get the fan blades off easily...

If its a DLP with a high pitched or even fan like sound it is the color wheel--Mitsubishi does not sell them as a part---you would have to replace the entire light engine (expensive and may not be available any more on a older set) .

Humming noise when turned on


The montherboard doesn't have anything that would make a humming noise. In all likelyhood it's the fan that sits on top of teh processor. It could be normal, but might need to be replaced or cleaned.

If the humming is your compressor running (feel the large copper line going into the unit, it should feel cold aftter a few minutes of run time) then the fan motor or the capacitor or both need to be replaced, check for voltage to the fan motor when the unit is "humming" if it has voltage and will not start replace the fan motor and the capacitor. hope this helps.

Humming noise


If you are using a dimmer switch to operate the fan instead of a fan speed controller, that is the cause of the humming. If you turn down the speed to the lowest setting and the hum gets louder, then your controller needs to be replaced.

Makes a loud noise when it is turned on. Can't open it.


If it is making a loud humming sound it is probably getting weak and will have to be replaced. Is it doing it in all speeds? Motor replacement would probably not be worthwhile unless it is a very expensive unit. I'd opt to replace the unit.

Humming noise


Hello,

The light enigine shouldn't be that difficult to replace if you have a decent amount of time and are moderately mechanically inclined. You can order the original Toshiba replacement light engine for this model (62HM95) from a major Toshiba parts distributor at the link below:

I am wondering if this sound might be your color wheel spinning. The color wheel often makes a low humming noise as it spins. Try checking to see if this is not the source of your noise. You need the color wheel to generate the colors needed to turn the B&W picture generated by the DLP into a color picture.

Thank you,
