Either the chip fan has too much dust on it or it might be time to get a new hard drive. You might wanna back up all your important data just in case but get a can of air spray and blow it in the holes closest to the sound.

Light problems


what kind of light fixture and lamps are they and what kind of noise is it making. A fluorescent light fixture ballast will make a humming sound. If you buy a more expensive ballast (the humming will stop). However, the ballast cost almost as much as the fixture in most cases.

2006 F150 5.4, 4x4, Lariat. Intermittent excessive humming/fan noise from engine compartment


Sounds like the fan clutch bearing is locked up. Running in direct drive will affect MPG drastically. Its a 2006 so its time to replace it. See if the fan blade will spin by hand with the engine off or if excessive wobble is present at the bearing.

I have new Samsung 1.5 Ton Window AC ( around one month old). Whenever AC is switched on in FAN or Cool mode the AC (probably FAn motor) make irritating Humming Noise. The noise slightly reduces after...


It is possible that your AC is not getting the right voltage or frequency and hence is trying to scavenge in gettting the current. It will be good if you can check on the mains voltage or on the wiring for a good 15 amp supply line. If there is any reduction or load onthe wire then the voltage can drop considerably. So in the first place kindly check this out. If this seems in order you will have to check for the fan or the compressor motor to be humming. If your cooling seems fine then you can check on the capacitor of the fan or the starter motor. I am sure since this is in warranty you must make a claim to get a free replacement. Hope you find my advice useful Good day

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming


check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced
