I unboxed a new MF644Cdw and, while it functions correctly, the whining noise it makes when warming up and printing, seems extremely loud. I can hear it upstairs through a closed basement office door.
I called tech support and they said it sounded pretty normal. I was on a cell phone, so I think the level was being attenuated by noise management don't by the phone.
Is this normal????
Video with sound of warm up after plugging in attached:
Me personally, I think it sounds a bit loud, but if you are holding the recording device right next to it, maybe its sounds worse than it actually is. You might visit a retailer and compare if possible.

The printer sounds normal. The sound may be applfied by where it is located. You stated it is in a basement.
You may want to check to ensure all packing material was removed. You can also remove and reset each toner cartridge.
