This can be one of two things, if the fan blades are chipped in anyway then the fan will be out of balance and wreck the bush that the fan runs in, i would say that its more likely to be dust thats worked its way into the bush and its running dry...my advise is to buy a replacement fan that are not expensive, give the unit a good blow out before you fit a new one
a "get you out of trouble" remedy would be to gain access to the fan spindle and put a drip(and i mean a very small drip) of light oil to lubricate the fan..ive done this on pc fans for years but its better to replace them in the long run.

Clutch fan making lots of noise, always the same, sounds like metallic grinding noise


could be a bad clutch fan(?) -- BUT note that the clutch fan is attached to the water pump and if I was to guess without seeing the vehicle with my own eyes -- I would say that the sound is a water pump bearing that is bad and it is time to replace the water pump.

Hi,

First, if the CPU fan is not spinning properly, you should NOT run the system. The fan needs to be replaced.

If the fan is running normally, you may boot by pressing F1.

Before replacing with a new fan, you can first try re-seating the plug for the fan in your computer. The fan's plug may have been bumped or loosed. Re-seat the plug located at J1F1 as shown in the picture below and be sure that it is properly connected.

Hope this helps.

My computer is becoming really hot and noisy. After turning on the computer, everything is good (no noise). Once around 15 minutes passes by or I open up a lot of programs together, my computer starts...


Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.

My smeg oven has a terrible noise in the fan on right hand side. My husband thinks the bearing has gone. As it stops quicker than the other fan.


It is going to be a worn bearing, or a loose or broken fan blade.
It more than likely means that you are going to have to replace the fan motor complete
One thing you can try is to spray the motor bearings with WD40, this may help to quiten it down
Hope this helps.

PS2 Cooling Fan not spinning


well could just be shot fans are not suppose to last forever the best thing to do would be replace the fan, make sure that the fan is not plugged up with anything and it has free movement when spinning if it struggles any then its seized up which would have to be replaced measure the fan and take a look on ebay for a replacement fan of that size but if you search for ps2 fan replacement then chances are that it will cost alot more.

if you need help finding a replacement let me know im more then willing to help out.

good luck

Ps2 fan


Is your machine a old one or a slimline version??
Slimline version have a micro fan and can be replace it.The old one is even better because are cheap and you have a lot choice.Just make sure you get the right one.I believe is a ball bearing fan so if the balls inside get dirty or sticky ..or just defective from nature....nothing more you can do then get a new part.the noise is cming from micro vibration in rotation and all that micro..in 2000-3000 rpm in a minute make a lot noise

Samsung american style fridge/freezer needs repairing


Spray a good quantity of WD-40 on the spindle of the fan motor where it enters the motor itself. This should get the fan working smoothly with no noise. This will probably solve the other problems, as the fan prevents various components from overheating and shutting down.

PS2 MAKES BUZZING NOISE


Between the ps2 and the TV, loop the cable around a metal rod or post of some sort. This should disrupt the interference you are getting which is caused by the electricities frequency! Hope this helps!
