You will find that its proberbly just the fan catching on the cage,
Strip it down and do a little panel beating on it till it runs free
and make sure its dist free.

Fan in freezer is making a real bad sound...... griding like it may be struggling to to stay running


This can be caused by frost accumulation on or aroundthe freezer fan Icing . And due to this no cooling will be in fridge compartment.
Unplug power and . defrost it. And after some times, switch on fridge.
This is due to auto defrost switch malfunction. keep temp setting at 5 degree and check auto defrost (if your fridge having that option) is working. If not you have to replace PCB. Thanks.

Noise


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.
Thankyou.

Whining noise from pc tower


No transistor will make such noise... The problem is not in your M/B. The problem might be due to the fan that cools your processor. So clean dust around the fan thoroughly.

If it makes a either a griding noise or sounds like it's going to take flight, you may need to have the fan replaced. Even after dust collects in the motherboard compartment, or somehwere by the fans, dirt and oils tend to get stuck in the fan and ruin it. Have the fan replaced before it creates more damage.
