360 is making some odd noise (not disc related)

#1LancetJades(Moderator)Posted 2/17/2013 12:28:25 PM(edited)
It's an original model, jasper chip.

On the lower/right half of the console (depending on how you look at it, it's the part with the power button), today it has an odd rumble-like noise. It sounds sort of like the fan is blowing too fast, or something around the fan is slightly out of alignment, causing it to do a rumbling sound.

This happens whether there's a disc in or not, and starts within 10 seconds of turning it on. Just started today, although I remember it happening once before, several months ago, and I forget what I did (if anything) to stop it.

It's almost certainly the fan, but does anyone have any ideas for what to do?

EDIT: Ok, it went away after leaving the 360 sitting on the dashboard for a few minutes. I'm guessing something was slightly ajar with the fan or something and it (probably) corrected itself. Still would like a more concrete answer if anyone else has had this issue before.

I would bet that your 360 is filled with dust. Mine used to do that until it expired :(

Hm, seems strange. Hopefully it doesn't break on you or anything.

If that's the case, any ideas on how best to clean it?

We'd answer, but you have (M) next to your name, and all GFaqs users know that means you'll mod us for anything we say.

Tell Error and Baseman that I said "Shut up" if you get a chance.


LOL!!!

my system makes a rumbling noise if I go to dashboard with a game in the system, but don't play the game. Once I start the game, it goes away. It also has a constant pulsating noise from the fans (Like they spin up and slow down constantly)
