    Is the console vertical or horizontal?

    If you are worried about it, send it in for a repair and pick the options that are the most similar to yours like the disc drive.


    Set up a repair here.  

    Ahhh, the sweet smell of pigskin is in the air. E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!!!   8-3 after an easy win. Huge game with the Cowboys up next.

    If it's making a loud noise while just being idle you may want to send it in for a repair or at least call support to see what they think. You get your console back quick now-a-days.

    Hi there. After doing some research I've found that this seems to be a disc drive problem. Try the suggestions on this disc drive solution help page support.xbox.com/.../disc-drive-solution  to see if it makes any difference in the noise.

    keep us updated.

    I would try and clear the system cache

    i would think its the disk drive or maybe the fans...

    If you don't want to send your xbox in, you could try installing a game to the hard drive and playing that way. The disk will spin for a bit while the game is loading, but should stop after a little bit.

    If the noise stops, then your disk drive is vibrating. If not, then it's probably a fan.

    I have a refurbished Xbox 360 Arcade  that I got a while ago (between 9 months to little over a year ago). I keep it laying on its side in my room. For the longest time,the fan would only blow audibly whenever I was playing a visually-high-quality game like Brutal Legend, Bulletstorm, Halo 4, Arkham Asyulm/ City or Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Since my brother put a cable box in my room and decided to put my 360 on top of it, I also have been hearing an audible humming that sometimes goes towards buzzing. And, after two and a half weeks of not playing my 360, and trying to connect a second controller for my guest, I heard a combination hum/buzz as I was setting it up and it was idle. Could it be because it was on top of the cable box? Or of dust that gathered around the system?

    OTAKU!

    I hear a loud buzzing noise too, yet it is not coming from the Xbox 360. I thought it was, but it was not. It is coming from the power supply.

    Yeah my power supply is also make a loud noise.

    Wiggle the disc tray about a couple of times and it should be alright.  I has happened before to me.
