It’s probably an old Mars light if I had to guess lol. They were well known for fans wearing out and making noise. If a specific fan is noisy there are more quiet replacement ones available. What model light? I bet someone here has a fix.

Man its not cool for me to say what I'd try personally , but try damping down the sound with some insulation board , or if in a tent ,donkey jackets and duvets can make a difference , cool neighbour 😎

Just a guess as most electrical devices has an onboard thermostatic as the vents get blocked with dust the fan speeds up to cool the device down

I would take the fans off if there easy to get too and use a hover and a brush to get rid of any dust and fix the fans back on, also you can see the fans model number on the fans, if any are damaged ( not smooth while spinning)

Look up the model number on ebay and buy a new one( should be easy to replace ).

Damn, that neighbour got some good hearing lol. Have you got it leaning on anything that causes something to vibrate? that causes the most noise

I’ve hung fans and extractors from bungees to help deaden vibrations. Worth considering
