There are a couple of possible workarounds mentioned below or you can say precautions to avoid such rattling noise completely on your Xbox Series X console.

  1. First of all, make sure that the game disc is inserted into the drive properly. A slightly unbalanced or warped disc position can cause uneven vibrations to the machine and the loud noise appears.
  2. Next, keep in mind that whether only one game disc is causing loud noise or not. So, try using a couple of different discs and check if the sound comes out all the time or not. If yes even that situation nothing needs to worry about as sometimes surface imbalance can also occur.
  3. Sometimes it can also possible that initially, the disc spinning sound may come out very loud but after a while, it can go silent as well. Check for the timespan first. If it lasts longer, follow another method.
  4. Try placing some material between the surface and the Xbox Series X base (circular stand) to reduce the conflict or vibrations. Maybe a cloth on the surface or a foam type material can also fix the noise issue.
