Fan runs all the time and is loud. Sometimes by tilting the unit the fan changes pitches. Laptop is used on a table and airflow seems adequate.

Hi,
Based on the information you provided there could be couple of reasons atleast: 1) Looks like the fan is having issues and needs to be replaced. 2) There is some CPU intensive programs (or background program . a virus?) running in the background.
You may want to run the Antivirus scan once to check for some unwanted background programs.
If it doesn't solve the issue, then probably the fan needs replacing.
Thanks and do tell if it did solve your problem.

Fan normally runs aloud when it runs very fast. This is caused by overheating CPU or Motherboard chipsets. Probably the copper pipe on your CPU is not having good contact with the chips when in a horizontal position. That's why when you tilt your machine it stops... You'll need to take the laptop apart & use a good thermal grease to put on your chipsets so that it gets good contact & cools your machine as needed. At the same time see if there is anything in there. Pls contact me for other info.

Heater fan blows weak


A lack of air flow from the heater duct assemblies can be from a variety of problems. One common problem is the AC evaporator core fins being plugged with dirt/debris/mold causing a lack of airflow from the heater fan. Another common problem can be an inoperative/sticky blend door in the heating /AC unit causing the airflow to be misdirected giving the feeling of lack of airflow. There may also be a problem with the heater fan itself not spinning as fast as it should to create adequate airflow

Is my Behringer Powered Mixer PMP2000 cooling fan suppose to run continuosly. It has a distracting hum in our small church. I don't remember it always running (fan) when we first started using it? Help :-[


Sorry, the fan is thermally controlled and USUALLY will run at low speed when unit is lightly loaded. In hot weather or driven hard it will run faster and louder.

Whatever you do, do NOT block airflow... these are a dual 400 Watt continuous amp (600 a side peak) and they need to breathe !!!

If you can duct cool air to it, that will help. You could also try sound absorbing baffles while maintaining adequate clearance for airflow.

Fan noise after a few minutes running.


Fans are typically a little noisey. If it's exceptionally loud or continues for a long time it may indicate the fan is no providing the proper cooling. Purchase a laptop cooling pad to place under the laptop while your useing it and make sure nothing is interfering with the airflow around the unit.

I have the Marvel 70 bottle wine cooler and it is making loud whining noise like if you put a stick in the wheel of spinning bike spokes when it is cooling down sometimes. it does not seem to be the fan...


I believe the 6SBAR has an evaporator fan located behind the evaporator plate ( the cooling plate) inside the unit. They had some issues with the bearings in those fans failing and will sound like a small jet engine sometimes (high pitched whine). When you hear the noise, open the door and if the noise level changes (either gets louder or goes away) then it is the evaporator fan. If your noise is coming from the compressor area and does not change when you open the door, it is most likely the condenser fan blade is loose. The evaporator fan looks like a small computer cooling fan and is located near the bottom center of the evaporator plate (out of site). The factory sells a replacement kit with a much better fan and new power supply. You can reach them at 800-223-3900. Good-luck.

L20 laptop overheats - disk makes beep and clicking noises


When any electronic device gets hot/overheats you will notice performance issues. Is the fan turning on/running? There should be a fan (most on the bottom of laptop some on side) that turns on when the unit get above a certain temp. Make sure thats comin on when it starts to get pretty warm/hot, also make sure you have adequate ventallation (laptops naturally get very hot no matter what). Make sure the bottom legs raise the laptop off of your table (should not sit completely flat on the table and should sit up just a little to allow air to flow underneath) or lap so air can circulate from the vents. If no fan then I would suggest replacing the fan (about $20). and see if that solves your issue.

Sounds like your machine is overheating big time. You didnt say if it boots up or not, but I wouldnt keep trying until someone can look at it. You probably need a new fan, possibly hard drive, hopefully not mother board.

Loud cooling fan hum


If the fan was not that noisy before , this can only be cause by a dirty fan and you may need to clean it up to reduce the hum coming out from it...

Top fridge not working


The Refrigerator receives all of its cold air from the freezer. There is a Fan that forces this air from the freezer into the Frig. If you don't hear the fan running or can feel airflow, then your fan is not working. Some newer units have electronic circuit boards that control fan operation. Sometimes the problem is the fan and other times the entire computer board needs replaced.

Loud whine gives us headaches


There are two possible things it could be, either a fan is giving the whining noise or it's the hard drive. Locate the fan on the underside and put your ear near to see if it's coming from there. If it is, the fan needs to be replaced.
If it's not the fan then it's probably the hard drive and I would not think it is going to last much longer.
