Why is my system making buzzing sounds?

My Wii is making really annoying buzzing sounds, and it worries me that there may be something wrong with it. Is this normal?

Hopefully it is just buzzing and not doing anything else like freezing. A suggestion is to check to make sure it isn't overheating is make sure it is on a hard flat surface. Rugs and carpets will usually cause it to overheat. If you start to get freezing issues I would suggest calling Nintendo, because mine started doing this with the buzzing sounds and eventually I had to send it in.

If your Wii overheats, then my suggestion (which I've used several times, works perfectly) is to lightly brush over the fan vent with a vacuum. Let me know if it helps. :)

Is there a game in the slot? If so the wii is scanning the disk.
