    Default My TiVo Roamio Fan is Making a Loud Noise

    I have a TiVo Roamio OTA that is making a lot of noise.

    I think it's the fan, but it could be the hd - any way to tell for sure?

    You are not alone - many of these TiVo Roamio OTA units are starting to sound pretty loud!

    My guess is, just based on the number of inquiries we get about this, that you have a bad fan. In other TiVo models, you can test this easily by disabling the fan by sticking something in the fan grates, but on this model, the fan is right in the middle of the unit, so it's not that easy.

    Anyway, I'd bet it's the fan. We have rarely (if ever?) seen a loud drive in this model. Modern drives just don't make a lot of noise, even when they fail.
