Has anyone come up with a good way to dampen the sound of the power supply on the xbox 1? I made a foam rubber case that worked pretty well, but the adapter got very hot and made me worry about the fire hazard.
If you are having trouble with your power adapter making noise,then you need to unplug it from the wall for 5-10 seconds. That should reset the power supply,however you should never wrap the power supply in anything because it needs to ventilate to keep
from overheating. The noise you are hearing is the cooling fan in the power brick. If you continue to have problems with it then contact ms to arrange for a warranty replacement.
Did this solve your problem?
