    My fan has just started to make audible noise. It almost now sounds like a humming/buzz from the fan. It had NEVER done this before. Is this fixable, is it somthing lkike dust in there or what? Cause it was NEVER noticable but now it is annoying. Any help would be Awesome!! Thanks

    I had the same problem with my fans... it all of a sudden started to hum. Turned out to be a halogen lamp my wife bought. Any new lighting in the house?

    I had some noise on my S1000 once. I took the cover off, removed both fans and then re-installed. My noise was more of an intermittent rattling so this might not be the fix for you.

    HOw involved is it to take off the cover and reinstall the fans? I think that would be a viable option to at least see whewre the problem is coming from.

    Thanks again

    when you take the cover off you might wanna oil the fans up a bit. if it's anything like a computer fan then you just peal the sticker off one side...put in a drop of motor oil...and put the sticker...or a piece of tape....back on.

    Not a big deal at all.

    I did however unplug the unit for 24hrs and made sure not go near the electronics because I couldn't identify a cap if I wanted too. And, if I could, I would not know its discharge properties to judge its state.

    The fans are attached with clips that are screwed on the chassis. When I took my fans out, I found that one of the clips was not seated correctly on the chassis causing the fan to rattle when it was on.
