    Hi, thanks for the answer, but i believe you have to end up going through the top, and removing the MB to get to the fan. I believe the bottom is one whole piece, thanks, GB

I believe that the 4020 and 3620 have the same chassis. See if this helps
To the left of the battery there is an I/O cover with 2 screws, then the heat sink cover has 2 screws. There you should see the Thermal Unit (fan). It has 4 screws. Take those out and lift the unit out.
Let me know , curious to see if they are indeed the same chassis.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

    I just found a illustration of the bottom of your laptop, The fan appears to be on the bottom of the system board.

    I could not find a free service manual, you can purchase one at these sites.:

I need to replace the keyboard on an Acer Aspire 3680 series laptop


Hi there.
Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it.
Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away.
Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it.
To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse.
Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Prolem with acer 3620


Try a new memory stick initially, Only 1 if the cost is high and see if it does boot up correctly. If not then you probably have had a surge or lightning damage and may need a new power supply. Just try the memory stick fist then go from there.

Component missing Acer aspire 3620


Hey,

The vga board on this laptop heats up very easyly and the heatsink is uselessly small. Video may fail withing 12 months. I would recommend another laptop model, this series 3xxx and 15xx have cooling issues and parts fail often. Not much you can do about the problem.

Thanks,
Ekse

Clean your fan by blowing it with air alternately through the vent and intake holes.


Hope this helps.
