Xbox One creating a high pitch squeaking

My Xbox One started making a high pitch squeaking when it is powered on. It is coming from the console not the power supply. It also creates the noise without a disk inside. It does not happen all the time, the noise starts and stops. It is not quiet, is there a fix to this?

Have you checked the fan on the console? Most of the time the squeaky sound is coming from the fan area, due to dust getting within the system. If you feel comfortable to do so, I would suggest getting some compressed air and using it to blow any dust out that might of got inside.

If the squeaking continues after that, would have it looked at by a gaming store or electronics store to see if there is further issues with it, other then possible dust.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
