Loud fan

I did a search but "fan" is too short of a word so the results were not very helpful. Looking to see if anyone is experiencing fan noise? I have a 2015 Canyon A/T and normally have the auto climate set. I will randomly notice that the fan gets a loud "clicking" noise while it's running. If I turn the fan off and then turn it back on again the operation is what I would call normal where the sound is just a very low hum of a fan. I will again notice the the click within about 10-15 minutes or so. I haven't been to the dealership yet for this but I expect it will receive a "functions as intended" stamp on it.

Thanks.

does the click change with the speed of the fan? Maybe check for a leaf in the blower motor. IDK

No change based on speed of the fan.

Is it audible from outside the truck? I have something similar, and I can hear it from outside as well. Once I turn off my HVAC it goes away temporarily.

You issue is probably the cabin air filter door not seated properly. Well known issue.

Clicking noise is rare. For the whistle you might like to read this thread:
