I've had the Clarion VRX 755VD for over a year now. About three months into the purchase the fan on the DVD player got loud. It gets especially loud when in the winter when the car is cold but even after the unit is warmed up the fan noise is loud and quite audible with the unit is not playing music. There is no way to shut off the fan noise. Even if i turn the unit off it will still run the fan if the keys are in the ignition. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Everything else works fine it never overheated and never had a single glitch in over a year.

Re: Really Loud Fan Noise
They have a bad issue with that. The fans fail all the time inm those clarions...
I can sell you a used fan for $40 or if youd like me to repair your unit you could send it to me and i will repair it for a total of $200.

I have one of these and must say the fan noise is barely noticable, are they using a genuine fan? the original is speed controlled whereas a universal replacement would just run at full speed all the time.
The fan noise has two reasons: one is that ice forms around them causing strain on the disk brush in the middle, which wares down the brush causing the fan to go out of balance, this causing the loud whinning and sometimes high pitched squilling. This happens when the unit is six months to a year old. The first thing that is suggested by the manufacturer is to let the unit be unplugged for twenty-four hours, allowing the ice to melt from around the fans. It has been my experience that this is only a short term fix. You can repeat this every other month until the revolutions per minute of the fans is so reduced that they no longer supply enough air ciculation to cool the refrigerator or the freezer. The solution to this problem is to replace these fans about once a year. Unless the noise does not bother you.
We have a double ge wall oven. The vent fans had become really loud. I checked the price for new fans...$275 each! Plus service of $200. If your oven is not too old, go to GE service purchase a 1 year service contract for $93.00. Wait one one month till it takes effect. Call them and request service and the entire replacement is free.
