I'm having trouble with the latest edition Matchbook Pro which I've had for around 4 months, The left fan is constantly making a grinding noise every time I turn it on and it won't stop. This is my first Mac and the noise is so unbearable that I can't use it. Anyone have any ideas because I use the Mac all the time, Thanks

If it's still under warranty take it back, obviously.
Most Apple stores should be able to fix it relatively quickly.

Unusual for a fan to go so quickly, likely a manufacturing defect, but all fans will die eventually, and are usually pretty easy to replace.

if you have warranty, take it back to the apple store.
if you don't have warranty, just go full "yolo" and take it apart and see what's wrong for yourself

+1 for take it to Apple Store if under warranty.
If you decide to try to fix it yourself, first check out a guide on ifixit.com to see what is involved. Make sure to pick the correct guide for your model.
