It has been reported that some Xbox One consoles have been alleviated of the noise by simply plugging in the Xbox One Kinect sensor. However it is not confirmed whether this is a solution for every case. A Microsoft spokesperson explained in an interview that :
“We have heard that a small number of Xbox One owners in some situations may hear a noise from the console that is too loud,”. “While this does not affect the safety or functionality of the system, we’re asking customers who believe they are experiencing this issue to contact Xbox Support: http://support.xbox.com. At the request of our customers, we are exchanging those consoles for new systems.”
