When you say it hums, is it an electrical hum or the sound of the fan spinning? Put your ear right next to the exhaust vent and listen for air. If you can't feel or hear air moving, then it's electrical hum.


It's the electrical hum the fan won't move cause it won't turn on

I would start by using the Xbox One Hard Drive Replacement guide. Skip steps 22 and 23, then follow the steps in reverse order to put your Xbox back together.

It doesn't need a hard drive. It won't even turn on.


I don't think the hard drive is the issue I think it could have gotten to hot there was a lot of lint and dust inside when I opened it up
