Noise

    The cooling fan on my TinyPilot has started making a lot of noise. I can unplug it and let it cool down to room temperature, it is quiet when it starts again but then gets noisy after an hour or so.

    Is there a fix?

          Is it possible to replace the fan with a passive solution? I got a couple and it is too noisy!

            Hi @tinyuser2022, sorry that you have issues with noisy fans.

            Is the fan noise louder than when you first started using your devices? Or is it just that the noise is too loud by default?

            It is not a defect but they are getting hotter since i use them all day long. Also due to in room heating the main temperature gets higher so the fan spins up. But since i have not one device it is getting too noisy now. I need a solution.

                  did you find a solution to the problem? I have a tinypilot that has become very loud and I need to use it for 8 hours during the working hours in the day time. The sound has started to disturb in my meetings as it is very loud.
