It appears some folks are having issues with extremely noisy Xbox One consoles.

Microsoft said the issue is being reported by a “small number of customers” but more occurances are being reported after the console’s recent launch in Japan and other countries.

The firm said those who are experiencing the issue should note the noise does “not affect the safety or functionality of the system,” yet it is more than happy to replace the offending console.

If yours is doing this, just contact Xbox Support and at “the request of customers,” it send you a new one.
