Our IBM Server Mt -M 8482 - 1SG Series 206 The fan has stopped after being very noisy and the server turns itself off after a while. I believe that I need a new fan.

I think that you are correct in your diagnosis.
I would look for a good fan that has ball bearings for your application.
You will need to measure the fan and get the correct size: i.e. 3” or 4” square.
If you can try to locate your CFM (Cubic Feet Per Minute) on the fan that you have and purchase one that is equal to or better. That will allow more cooling on your system.
I know that you can get these from any computer vendor, but shop around. Don’t just look for the best price; you get what you pay for.
I use an online source of for most of my computer needs.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

CPU Fan Failed

Yes that is what you need to do. It's either due to your CPU board having issues or your fan is just old and needs to be replaced. You always need to have a fan running to cool off your CPU. Let me know if this helps and if you need anything else.

Fan Error on IBM T41

This is normally the CPU fan - is it working?
Is it connected to CPU fan socket on mainboard or a different socket - it must be connected to correct socket or fan will not be detected?

I want to buy a new CPU fan for my notebook

Fans are fairly easy to find and replace. Open the notebook and see what size it is (OD and thickness) in mm. Most run on 12v, but some are 5v. There should be some lable or marking on the fan. Then go to, and select a fan that matches the dimensions and volts. Mouser has a large selection. Sometimes the connector for the fan is tiny, but it is a quick job to splice the new wires in place.
