Humming Noise in fan that goes away if I press my fan up. What..?
Hi. I'm not sure what this would be. I've lived in my apartment for 3 years and last year my fan started making a humming noise. I'm embarassed to say anything to the landlord because it's barely noticable. I can hear it during the day, but it's really annoying at night when I'm trying to sleep. It's the only sound I hear and get woken up by it.
I've tried moving my fan (rotates a lot around it's axis), but it doesn't help. The only thing I've found that stops the humming is pressing the bottom piece on the fan up towards the mount. It makes the humming stop.
Does anyone know what's going on or how I can fix it? Is it something I can fix myself? Or do I have a reason to ask to have it replaced if not?
