Default Toshiba SD-3980 "purring"

I guess it's a wonder this unit is still running given the problems people have reported on it. The problem I'm having is that the motor makes a "purring" noise when there's a disc in the player. It's something I can live with, but if anyone has any hints on how to quiet it down, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Likely the ribbon cables need reseating .. Unplug then replug them.
Possibly the CD tray is somehow jamming.. check for obstructions and re-lube.. sparingly.
