    I have a deep blue 36: light on a 57 and the fan hums, took end cap off, fan blades seem to sit on housing causing a hum. If i flip it upside down no hum...not sure if fixable any ideas

    I've replaced fans on fixtures by replacing them with computer case fans. Really simple to do. Can reduce noise quite a bit.

    You also may try a fan gasket. They are used to eliminate vibration and therefore noise from PC case fans. That might work too. They will add a little height so make sure you have the clearance.
