What does it mean if the noise is irregular?
This could be one of several problems. The most common is dirt and dust building up around the fan blades with the result that the blades rub against the dust when spinning and create a rhythmic (but unwanted) sound. Squeaking or uneven sounds may occur when the bearings that help the fan spin start to fail or become contaminated with dirt. You might also hear strange noises if a fan blade has been cracked or broken. This often happens as a result of someone sticking solid objects - a screwdriver, for example - into the moving blades.
concernant un ventilateur, le terme 'roulements' est-il approprié ? Je sais que j'ai déjà posté ce terme... Merci !
