Another source of strange noises in the 4000/4050 series are the feed and seperation rollers used in tray 2&3. As they become worn they make a growling sound. The replacement part # is RF5-1885-000CN. If the noise is definitely in the transfer roller area, changing out the toner cartridge would be the thing to try first.

Please define 'unsual noise'. Squeaking, high pitched, low pitched, constant, only when pulling paper?
Just a bit more info would be very helpful, at least from here.
