WiFi Pods - one is whistling / whirring

Tuning in

Owing to poor WiFi, I have been using two Pods for many months now and they are brilliant.  One is upstairs and one is downstairs.

However, a few weeks ago, one of them started making a high pitched whistling and whirring noise.  The other one is completely silent.

I got in touch with VM and they asked me to "monitor" for a few weeks to see if it continued.

In the meantime, I swapped the Pods in case the issue was with the electrical socket.  I found that the whistling noise follows the Pod - so it clearly is the one Pod that has a fault of some kind.

I contacted VM again and was told that it was a "provisioning issue with the pods I am using" - not sure what that means, but they closed the call and said the "FMS colleagues" (whoever they are) would be in touch within 24 hours to help me resolve it.

Several days later, I haven't heard back from anyone.  In my mind, it is a simple job of replacing the one Pod?

I wondered if anyone may be able to assist?

Thanks very much



Disconnect any faulty VM Pods. Thermal events are not unknown.

Our pod is doing exactly the same. I've unplugged it for safety reasons. Will VM replace it?
