Ps3 fan is really loud and won't stop, sounds like a vacuum cleaner ... i can turn the system off for hours and when i turn it back on it is still making that sound


Most probably your fan has gone faulty. The link below shows how to disassemble it, do this and clean out, or replace your fan, or indeed it MAY be the DVD, perhaps that may be the culprit, you still have to open to check. Be slow and methodical. keep all screws together in a little container. Be cateful when unplugging leads. You should be fine.

PS3 Loud Fan Noise


It sounds like it needs to be cleaned, just blow some compressed air into the fan area, unless you can actually get it opened, then that would be better.
Hope this helps!

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

When i turn on my ps3 it works fine until i play for about 15 minutes then a loud fan starts running.


Does the PS3 still work while the fan is running. This is typical with PS3, especially if the fan is dirty. It comes on and off to cool down the processors.
