Hi Travis&Dianne, The fan is the cooling fan for the power supply which incidently is a SMPS. These are axial fans working voltage will be specified on the fan body normally 12V DC or can be also higher rating. Now there is a possibility that some dirt or particles could have lodged inside causing the noise. You can use a small thin brush to wipe off, or a good air jet to blown out. These are sealed units and not very expensive. You can also source one from a repair shop as usually when the powerr unit fails the full unit is changed and these go for scrap or E- waste. Your nearest friendly repair shop will be only glad to give you this fan. take the old one to confirm the mountings usually 4screws at corners, replace it making sure the polarity and connector is same or use the old connector. Hope this helps. Good day

Sometimes dust accumulates on the fan and cause and imbalance. try blowiing dust out with a can of duster spray, and/or vacuum the vent where the fan exhausts. If all else fails, you can replace the fan by disconnecting it from the motherboard (only try this if your are comfortable working inside a computer). the fan is rated dy the size and rpm/cfm. you can usually order on by entering the fan's model number online.. otherwise find a computer parts store (even Best Buy carries some fans)

40 inch sony bravia making buzzing noises....any suggestions

There are 2 small 1.5" fans that are located on the top right and left sides of the screen. These fans are of the non ball bearing type, so the bearings may be wearing out. You can either replace the fan or add a couple drops of oil to it. Remove the label on the back of the fan and put the oil there, it should quiet down. This will work for a while but eventually the fan will need to be replaced.
Good Luck!

Emachines laptop keep freezing and making loud buzzing noise when i listen to music. please help

The buzzing/grinding noise is probably a bad connection if you are using earphones. Put a couple of drops of rubbing alcohol on some toilet paper and clean the prong for your earphones. Wait a minute and reinsert the plug into the jack. As for the freezing up of the video, you might want to download and install your video drivers for your emachine. Go to the manufacturer's web page to find the right ones. Don't forget to reboot after installations.

Noise inside the Freezer
If your freezer is making a squealing or a little chirping sound, your condenser or evaporator fan is the cause. Open up the freezer door, and the noise usually gets louder. The location of the fan depends on your model freezer. Usually, the fan is located on the rear wall of the freezer. The fan can lose lubrication or become rusty over time. You cannot repair the fan. You must purchase a new one.

It will be the external cooling fan that is causing the noise.
Probably worn beaqring or broken fan blade.
Normally, the only solution is to replace the fan motor.
It is located at the top of the oven, usually at the rear, but not in every case.
Please rate my solution.
