2011 Chevrolet Equinox: actuator noise

I recently replaced the blend door actuator on our 2011 equinox and after syncing it with the other actuators the new one is still making the same noise

how did you calibrate them?

With a Tech 2?

snap on scanner?

Some other method?

Could also ebsome broken linkages, or maybe the blend door itself

We need more information from you

Synced actuator by turning on ignition then pulling out hvac fuse for 15 seconds and putting it back in did not hear any noise of actuators moving while doing this

We don’t know what the original noise was.
Is it whirring, clicking, ???

Also, does it seem to be doing the job of moving the blend door properly between selected positions?
