The post begs for the obvious answer: Replace the fan.

Now to be more polite, first you need to identify the failing fan and replace it.

A desktop system can have several fans. Case/processor fan (you can test to see if this is the effected fan by unplugging it for a minute or two from the motherboard (a couple minutes will not hurt the system).

The video card may have a fan on it (Often on the underside if a mini tower) Some video card fans can be easily removed but finding replacement fans can be a challenge. Normally if a video card fan fails, replace the video card.

Most often, the failing fan is in the power supply unit or PSU. If you are handy with electrical components, you can remove the PSU, remove the fan and replace it. If you are not handy electrically, replace the PSU.

Higher end system may have card cage fans to help cool hard drive/expansion cards and others have fans specifically to coll hard drives.

Most manufacturers have spare parts where you can buy parts or you can use google to find specific replacement parts or fan suppliers.

How to fix a noisy evaporator fan in a frost free refrigerator


The ice usually makes a fan noisy by filling the cavity it needs to move the blades in. check if this is the case, if there is no obstruction and the fan motor itself is noisy it needs to be replaced or serviced, servicing parts is trickier to find than the little motor it self.
To clear the ice just let the fridge stand for a few hours and to help the process speed up you can spray the evaporator with luke warm water.

Noisy fan and no heat


Kitchen aid is made by Whirlpool. There is a very good chance the then thermal fuse on the back of the oven has tripped. Whirlpools are very prone to this fuse tripping after a clean cycle. The noisy fan is just that a noisy fan it will probably need replacing. I have replace a couple of them over the years. When you pull the oven out to replace the thermal fuse replace the fan motor at the same tiome.

Creda Cordialle fan assisted oven is so noisy what can I do?


If it is the fan that is noisy, check for loose fan or the fan blades catching the cover, if all o/k, then it will probably be a worn fan bearing, only solution would be to replace the fan motor.

Noisy evaporator fan


A noisy fan is caused by several things. The fan can have the blade touching something behind the shroud (the back wall in front of the fan). It could be the bearings on the fan are no good - try oiling with Triflow oil. The fan blade could be out of balance. Try cleaning any dirt or grime off the blade. Fans are cheap (relatively). Tried a new one?
Some fans are just noisy. Try thin rubber between the fan and the screws that mount it (bicycle tire patches work good for this).
