Noise coming from suction motor?

Started hearing an annoying noise that I think is coming from a motor under the surface plate that sucks the material down. Suction still good but looking for suggestions as to what may have caused the problem and how to fix it.

Search didn't come up with any answers on this one. -_-

There are a series of muffin fans under the dryer platen that provides suction
Could be they are just getting dirty.

You dont want to remove the platen under the print head, it takes a jig to get this back in alignment.

Someone more familiar with this model may be able to tell you which cover(s) to take off to clean these fans.
Is there a high/low for suction on this model?

Or to temporarily disable them to isolate the noise.
