English translation:bearing noises/grazing ventilator blades
Explanation:
Lager geräusche would be bearing noises. Lüfter = ventilators, but I can only guess at streifend. Maybe grazing as in touching? The blades of the ventilator might graze the housing.

Explanation:
Lagergeräusche- noises caused by incorrect installed/operating bearings OR funny sounds pointing to instable storage of goods

streifende Lüfter- I imagine a noise caused by faulty/not properly adjusted ventilators
undichte Ventile- leaking valves

how about wheezing, squeaking, rattling, etc???

rattling ventilators, bearing noises


Explanation:
streifen is tough: 'leicht berühren', 'touch'
I interpret 'streifende Lüfter' as a ventilator, the rotor blades of which touch some part of the ventilator and thus produce a disturbing striking sound.
The best word for it would according to my Norstedt dictionary and my own experince be 'rattle'
